Guilty indulgences are expected during the holidays, but fitness guru and author Jerrod Sessler believes that this is one of the best times to get fit and start early on those forthcoming New Year’s resolutions. Sessler has pulled his top five tips for getting fit during the holidays from his most recent book, The Five Minute Workout.
5. Get Inspired
I read Jim Collins’ story of the ‘20 Mile March’ and it really challenged my thinking about fitness. I was inspired to make slight changes to my health habits that would reap gigantic rewards. Look for your own inspiration from a person, song, or book that has significant meaning to you. The source of your inspiration doesn’t matter, just look for ways that will encourage you to continue in your health resolutions. The results will likely lead to a more fit, healthy and happy you!
4. Know Your Food
Most of what we eat is not actually food. Real food is grown on a tree or in the ground. Real food is raw, fresh, and alive. Real food is packed with life-giving nutrients. This holiday season commit to eating real food. Think about it this way...if you skip eating the stuff that isn't actually food (junk), will you remember it in a week? Will you even remember it the next morning? Of course not! Skip the junk, focus on enjoying the people around you and before you know it you will look in the mirror and be amazed—and happy!
3. Twenty Minutes in the Kitchen Saves 2 Hours at the Gym
Making healthy food for yourself and your family can be fun and rewarding. You will feel great, sleep better, and enjoy more of your life! Ditch the delivery and enjoy time with your family by cooking food together.
2. Five Minutes of Exercise per Day Equals 30 Hours a Year
Instead of ignoring exercise, and telling yourself that you will get into the gym once January arrives, start now with a little bit of exercise every day. If you cannot hit the gym, then do a simple circuit routine of push-ups, jumping jacks, sit-ups, and stationary running. If that sounds crazy then set a reminder on your phone to exercise 1-minute per hour, every hour, throughout the day. Do that a few times per day and it will add up to big results.
1. Think Long-Term
Your commitment to health is a life-long endeavor. Do not get frustrated just because you’re not where you want to be after a week or two of changing your health habits. To help you along the way, take photos when you start and then take another photo once a month. Post the photos in successive order, alongside a photo of the abs, rear-end, legs, or arms that you eventually want to emulate. Celebrate your progress. Stay committed to the process for at least a year and you will see enough change that you will be hooked for life!
