Winter months are hard, they bring out the survival tactics in you. Hole up, bundle up and conserve precious energy. There is not to waste, your body is fighting off the elements, it needs to use all the nutrients you are ingesting.
But once it hits January you know it's only midway through the season, you can't keep hiding out. So, how do you get moving again?
1. Start small. Go on a walk. Do some yoga. Stretch a little in front of the TV. Just do something.
2. Have a dance party with your peeps. Holidays or not dancing is a mandatory fun form of expression and fabulously good cardio. Get your groove on.
3. Set a timer. After an hour of sitting have your timer go off and DO SOMETHING active. I guarantee you will get addicted to the way moving makes you feel and you won't even want to sit back down and glaze over in Netflix AGAIN.
1 hour mark ideas:
-dance to a song
-re-enact whatever was happening that you were just doing (ex: watching a movie? play out the scene; reading? pick a part and make it a charades game; watching videos on Instagram? do your own interpretation of it)
The point is to keep life fresh and full of new experiences; movement helps invigorate that notion of new stimulating, thoughts. So try it and feel good again.
