Nutrition Q & A

How Do I Incorporate Physical Activity into My Busy Schedule during the Holiday Months?

One way to burn some of the additional calories taken in during the holiday season is with physical activity. Simple activities such as a brisk walk after a meal, tag football with the family, or walking the dog count as physical activity and can burn a substantial amount of calories. However, the holiday season is quite cold in many parts of the country, so one might ask what is some physical activity that can be done indoors during these months? Some easy ways to get additional physical activity indoors include:

  • Walking the mall while gift shopping
  • Taking the stairs whenever possible
  • Doing a workout video
  • Cleaning the house for guests

The experts recommend at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week, but remember that small changes make big differences so a little is always better than none!
