The Holiday Season is a season that’s filled with cheer and warmth, brought about by gifts, delicious food and gatherings. What it’s not about is sticking to a fitness routine or hitting the gym for a daily sweat quota. Health and fitness may be far from Santa’s list, but hey, it doesn’t have to be that way!
Between work, home and holiday chores, the reality is that there’s just no time to make a quick trip to the gym or to attend fitness classes. But that doesn’t mean you can’t squeeze in health and fitness into the daily holiday routine! Quit making it a yearly New Year’s resolution, and start getting or staying in shape during the craziness of the season with the help of these fitness must-haves, available at Tiendesitas.
- Running Watch
Running to the grocery for kitchen and potluck needs, heading over to malls and shops for presents, plus traveling to various locations for Christmas parties. It’s a season of running around! So make all that running work for your health and fitness. Walking to a nearby store? Take a longer route or make it a brisk walk instead of a leisurely one. Be mindful and intentional with every stride. A running watch should help you keep count of the steps, the distance, and the calories you burned during your walk!
- Walking Shoes
Do you easily tire of walking within an hour? It might be the shoes you’re wearing. Getting the right type of footwear means getting the right comfort that your feet need for longer hours of walking and running. Walking shoes are your best bet for lightweight footwear with great shock absorption, and flexibility. Definitely a fitness must-have for all the walking that the season requires.
- Toning Dumbbells
Carrying presents and purchases does wonders for your arm strength. But if you want to be more consistent about it, then doing 5-minute arm workouts at home with dumbbells should do the trick! Be sure to pick the right dumbbell weight for your needs. Women looking to bulk up on muscle mass may use weights between 5 and 8 pounds, while men may opt for 8 and 10 pounds.Dumbbells go beyond working up your arms. With the right exercise, dumbbells can help strengthen the upper body too.
- Yoga Mat
There is such a thing as Holiday Fatigue. As its name suggests, it’s when you feel exhausted, tired and stressed with all the preparations, parties and traditions of the holidays. One of the ways to prevent the holiday fatigue is to just let things flow and unfold. Don’t let yourself be dragged into the rush of things. This practice of being present and mindful is central to yoga. Go get yourself a yoga mat and take breaks with breathing exercises, stretches and body-toning poses.
While technically not something that helps get you in shape, towels can still be handy in keeping you sweat-free while on the go. You’ll find a wide variety of towels in different sizes and materials in Decathlon.
