Wow, can you believe it’s that time of year already? It seems to me like I was just lighting fireworks for last New Year’s, yesterday, and now it’s just around the corner again. Of course with all the holiday celebrations come the holiday goods! First, the pumpkin lattes come back. After having one of those a day for nearly the entire month of October and most of November you think you’d be over sweets. But no, you have the thanksgiving feast which turns into a week of non-stop eating. Finally, Christmas rolls around to greet you with candy canes, egg nog, holiday popcorn and the works. With all the eating, it is no wonder that most people put losing weight on their resolution list for the next year.
Not to worry though! Blick Law Firm has the holiday healthy tips to prevent you from gaining the extra 10-100 lbs that most people commonly gain during the holiday season.
1. Spend time with the family and do something active. As a resident of Florida there are so many outdoor activities that are accessible to any family. Go camping or hike around the everglades or Ocala national park and really take time to appreciate the scenery.
2. Go to the beach! Not many states can boast having beach time weather nearly all year long. If you happen to find yourself with nothing to do on those absurdly, unseasonably warm winter days- go to the closest beach and enjoy some fun in the sun.
3. Trade in your holidays sweets for holiday feats! Instead of gifting sweets why not do something to show someone else how much they really mean to you? Not only will they save some pounds but you won’t be in their presence snacking on your gift as well.
4. Buy a gym membership! The holidays offer a unique time of year to get great deals on gym memberships. Many gyms will offer prorated and discounted prices as incentives to get clients to lock in annual memberships.
Being active and healthy during the holidays can be difficult. We recommend you stay out and about being physically active to ward off those excess lbs; be mindful, however, that you don’t want to be out of the house for too long! The holidays are a very active time for criminal activity and home burglaries. Make sure to lock your doors when you leave and survey who walks around your neighborhood. If you do find yourself in a burglary situation please consult one of our attorneys for options. We can assist and guide you through the necessary actions that should be taken to prevent you from losing out.
