The holidays have arrived and with that comes shopping, parties, family gatherings, and an even more hectic than normal schedule.

With all the added food indulgences and stress, exercising during the holidays should remain a priority. Exercise burns calories, relieves stress, and elevates your endorphins and mood. Try to fit in 30 minutes to an hour daily to help combat the holiday bulge.

Blow off holiday tension by hopping on the elliptical or stair climber. You’ll increase your levels of “soothing” brain chemicals like serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine.

Feel euphoric this holiday season by shifting to high-intensity intervals. Shifting into “high intensity mode” provides you with a “runners high” all day long. High intensity intervals boost your energy levels, improves muscle strength and endurance and you utilize energy more efficiently which provides you with energy throughout the day.

Sweat off those extra calories this holiday season.

Not only will you help ward off weight gain but you may also find yourself naturally making healthier choices since exercise boosts self image.
