5 Tips to Keep Moving Over the Holidays!

2/3 of Irish adults are not getting enough exercise. All though Christmas is a time to switch off and relax, it’s important to try maintain a level of activity over the festive period. Here are easy tips to help keep you moving.

1. Walking
Weather permitting, try meet your friends and family for a nice walk instead of sitting by the fire. Aim to get up to your 10,000 steps daily.

2. Stretching
Going through a stretching regime is a nice way to get moving. Check out some good overall body stretching exercises here and here.


3. Avoid sitting for long periods

If you are doing a long drive over Christmas, try to take some stops to stretch your legs and get moving.
