Approximately 100-million Americans travel around Christmas-time, which means: Plenty of airport layovers, car rides and time spent “off” your A-game. However, just because you’re out of your element, doesn’t mean a little sweat is off the table…Thrive’s got your back with Travel Workouts you can do anywhere (even the airport).
It’s the most wonderful time of year for everything except…your routine.
Try as you may, the holiday season can (seemingly) throw a curveball into your self-care essentials, like:
- Your workouts
- Your fave types of foods
- Your usual eating schedule
As challenging or frustrating as it may be to be off schedule though, the holidays can also be LIBERATING for breaking free from the old ruts, rules and regulations you keep for yourself in these areas of your life—( and a time of learning to trust your body more).
Just because you can’t have your usual “clean” breakfast, or your usual workout time or workout style when you’re traveling, does NOT mean your self-care has to go out the window.
Your body simply doesn’t see a “healthy lifestyle” the way you always see it—one way or the highway.
And, just because you’re out of sync with your routine, doesn’t mean that “being healthy” is a lost cause.
If anything, health is a lifestyle.
Your values for health can follow suit.
Airport Workouts (to Kill Long Layovers)
Yup. Don’t let travel get you down.
Stuck in an airport this holiday season with long layovers and backed up lines?
Don’t be afraid to break a sweat with one of these airport workouts to help pass the time and get some blood flowing. (Also great for home).
(Confession: Totally did one of these over Thanksgiving at the airport and actually had a few people join in).
