It’s that time of the year, when holiday treats are everywhere and the motivation to exercise disappears. Spending time with family and indulging in decadent meals and snacks is a given. Routines are out of whack and you’ve dreamed of this time off to relax. Exercising could seem like a chore when you are on holiday, but I want to help shift that perspective and create a new mindset for it. 

Whether you work out for 10 minutes or 60 minutes, you are working on yourself, ultimately getting stronger every day. Think about how you feel after completing a workout. You’ll never regret that movement and the mental break it offers from planning the perfect holiday festivities or ensuring all relatives are getting along. Whether you get your workout in when you first wake up or while the baked goods are in the oven, enjoy the time you are taking for yourself. 

Here’s a home workout to keep you on track no matter where you are in the world. These exercises allow you to go at your own pace. Do a few rounds or set a timer for 20 to 30 minutes and do an AMRAP (as many rounds as possible). These are all bodyweight moves to keep it simple, but if you feel like leveling up the exercises, feel free to add weight. 

Mind/muscle connection is important with every move, it helps you focus on form and feel the muscles you’re working. Think about engaging your core, this will help with balance and getting the most out of the workout. Enjoy the holidays and exercising on the go!
