The holiday season is a joyful time of year when many of us look forward to spending some quality time with our friends and family.
Despite the fun that comes with the festivities, December can also be a very stressful time of year. Not only are many of us left scrambling to purchase last minute holiday gifts, but we are also trying to find time to wrap gifts, decorate the house, plan holiday get-togethers, bake holiday treats and cook major family meals. All of this can cause added stress which can make it easy to overlook some of the healthy habits that were built throughout the year.
Chances are you have heard the month of November referred to as “Movember” several times over the last few years. While the first thing that comes to mind is probably mustaches, it is important to know that there is a bigger cause behind the Movember movement.
Autumn is officially here and it is one of the best times of the year to be active outdoors.
Not only are the temperatures more comfortable this time of year – making it more enjoyable to exercise outside – but there are also many autumn-specific activities that you can take advantage of to get your body up and moving. Plus, staying active is a good habit to form before the holiday season arrives, as your home is likely to be full of delicious (but not-so-healthy) food in November and December.
