6 Tips to Keep Your Mojo Intact This Festive Season

Keep the Festive blues at bay!

The festive season has finally arrived! We are now in that part of the year where you get a free pass to overindulge in all things chocolate, cheese, mulled wine, and so much more! And while it’s a season filled with so much fun, laughter, and joy with family and friends, it can also be overwhelming. With busy schedules that can feel chaotic, endless Christmas parties and festive get-togethers, and the almost certain weight gain from all those delicious extra calories, how can we keep our minds and bodies healthy and happy throughout December?

Show Yourself Some Self-Compassion

Being kind to yourself at this time of the year is crucial to keeping your mind at peace. The way you talk to yourself directly affects how you feel about yourself, so try and avoid negative self-talk, particularly after you’ve over indulged and feel the food guilt creeping in. Speak kindly about your body – it’s your home and it’s amazing!

Try to Avoid the All-or-Nothing Mentality

Slacking off on all your normal habits and replacing them with eating and drinking everything in sight for a month will leave you feeling lost and not so good. So, try to find a balance by keeping up with the things that usually make you feel good. This could be meditation or even exercise routines. Health is wealth, so balance Christmas and end-of-year parties with lighter, more nutritious meals the next day.

Eat More Mindfully

Festive Season

Food is always there to be enjoyed, and while you’re going to be eating more of it this season, be mindful of what you are eating. Also, check in with your hunger cues and fullness to help manage your satisfaction and the urge to reach for more when you’re actually full. Getting your brain to connect with your stomach will help with not going overboard and stuffing yourself silly.

Stay Active

This doesn’t mean that you need to do cardio every day, but get more steps in. Go outside for walks – the fresh air and oxygen will leave you feeling good and contribute to increased wellness! Keep in mind, though, that you need to move in a way that feels good for you, not from a place of punishing your body to burn off last night’s overindulgences.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! 

This is probably the easiest hack to keep your body functioning well. Our bodies are made of 45-65% water, so keeping our hydration up is very important for our well-being.

Be Present (No Pun Intended)

Focus on enjoying every second you have with the people you love and be sure to fully take in all the merriness of the festive season. Being in the moment is what makes for ultimate happiness in life!

1. Wake Up the Body with Cardio Bursts:

Kickstart your post-Thanksgiving regimen with invigorating cardio bursts. Whether it’s a brisk morning walk, a jog, or a dance session, get your heart pumping and awaken your body from its food-induced slumber.

2. Core-Strengthening Pilates:

Engage your core muscles with a Pilates session to restore balance and stability. These low-impact exercises are perfect for toning and strengthening, providing a gentle yet effective workout for your post-feast body.

3. Yoga for Digestive Ease:

Explore a sequence of yoga poses designed to aid digestion and promote relaxation. Gentle twists and stretches will help soothe your stomach and release tension, leaving you feeling rejuvenated.

4. High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT):

Inject a burst of energy with HIIT exercises to elevate your heart rate and boost your metabolism. Short, intense intervals followed by rest periods are an efficient way to burn off excess calories and jumpstart your fitness routine.

5. Mindful Cool Down with Stretching:

Wind down your workout with mindful stretching. Focus on areas that may have tightened during the holiday festivities, allowing your body to recover and preventing post-feast stiffness.

As you embrace this post-Thanksgiving workout regimen, remember that it’s not about punishment but restoring balance. This curated routine aims to invigorate your body, clear your mind, and set the tone for a healthy and active holiday season. So, lace up those sneakers, roll out the yoga mat, and let’s embark on a journey to revitalise and recharge after the Thanksgiving feast.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon after Thanksgiving should I start this workout regimen?

The post-Thanksgiving workout regimen can be started as early as the day after the feast. However, listen to your body, and if needed, allow a day or two for digestion before engaging in more intense exercises.

Can I customize the workout routine based on my fitness level?

Absolutely! Tailor the regimen to suit your fitness level and preferences. Modify intensity, duration, or choose alternative exercises to ensure a comfortable and effective workout experience.

Is it necessary to follow the entire workout routine, or can I focus on specific exercises?

Feel free to adapt the regimen to your needs. While the full routine provides a well-rounded approach, you can choose specific exercises based on your preferences or focus on areas that feel particularly tight or in need of attention.
