How to stay fit during the Christmas period – Covid-Style

Christmas is a time for indulgence and relaxation. However it is still important to stay active during the festive season.

We have put together a list of COVID-secure activities to help you stay active this Christmas.

1. Go on a winter walk

The dark and cold days leading up to Christmas can leave us all leaning for a hot chocolate and tray of biscuits. Although that is fine in proportion, why not go for a walk and enjoy the crisp, wintery scenery? It is proven that fresh air helps lift your mood which will make you less likely to over-indulge.

2. Take part in our Online Hub workouts

We will be posting plenty of festive-themed workouts over the Christmas period. You can take part in these from the comfort of your own home. Watch live or watch-back old workouts over on our Facebook page.

3. Dance the night away

’tis the season to be jolly! Although we will not be partying this Christmas, why not turn up the festive tunes and have a dance with your family?

4. Stay hydrated

A lot of us are guilty for over-indulging in alcohol during the month of December, but it is important not to forget to keep yourself hydrated with plenty of water too. Not only can water help to flush out toxins, it also helps to ease any unwanted hunger feelings whilst you’re online shopping.

5. Get enough sleep

It can be easy to get swept away in all the festivities over December, but it’s important to still get the right amount of sleep to keep you feeling your best self. Take this time at home to catch up on the sleep you may have missed whilst being at university.

6. Relax!

The month of December can be stressful, especially given the uncertainty this year. It is important not to ‘burn the candle at both ends’ and take some time to relax and self-love.
