Have you noticed that we tend to substitute food for entertainment around the holidays? While sitting around the table and enjoying good company and good food is part of many of our traditions, consider scheduling some group activities to get you and your guests moving (and away from the table!). You will all benefit from better digestion, circulation and the stress release.
- Active games like charades, taking family photos ‘in action’ at your local park, neighborhood treasure hunts or simply walking through local neighborhoods to appreciate the holiday décor are all easy and fun ways to move away from food and move closer to interacting with one another.
- Move the buffet table and chairs aside and turn on the music! Dancing is a perfect way to liven up a party, get people moving and burn some calories.
When you make a little time to move during the holiday season, you are more likely to keep your mood and spirit in check!
