Tips to stay active for the holidays:

  • Stay active
    Squat while brushing your teeth, take the stairs at work, or park farther away from the mall.
  • Watch your calories
    Plan ahead for parties by staying hydrated and eat healthy snacks throughout day.
  • Practice mindfulness
    Try to find five minutes a day to just be still and quiet, or download meditation apps.
