Staying healthy at Christmas time can be tricky. Mobile Rehab is releasing a series of health tips in the lead up to the festive season to help you set good habits and carry them through to the new year.
Tip #1 – Just keep moving!
Just keep moving – it sounds simple, and when you put in a little effort, it actually is! Whether you can run a marathon or you’re limited in your mobility, just keep moving what you can, and when you can. Incidental exercise is a great way to keep moving. This means that you incorporate exercise into things you do every day in a way that you hardly notice.
Some great examples of incidental exercise to help you stay healthy at Christmas include:
- Take the stairs instead of the escalator
- During TV ad breaks, doing some arm and leg exercises
- When waiting for the kettle to boil, hold onto the bench stretch up onto your ‘tippy toes’ and hold for a few seconds. Repeat a few times.
- Do what you can (and what you enjoy) and do it often!
