Training – Make it a Priority

Many things are changing this time of year. Cool days and cooler nights, less sunshine and more gloomy days, upcoming holidays and trying to be prepared to name a few. It is not uncommon for some people to get into a rut this time of year. It’s hard to be motivated when you don’t see the sun for days on end. The holidays usually mean parties, food, drinking and less sleep. All these things combined make for a bad recipe for getting through the season.
But alas, there is hope!! One thing that has been proven to boost moods, improve sleep, stave off weight gain, and just making you feel better is consistent training. Fact: when you work out, your brain releases endorphins that give you a sense of euphoria. Why would you give this up? Fact: when you work out your metabolic rate increases and thus you will burn more calories during the day. Why give that up? Fact: people always feel better about themselves after a good training session. Why give that up?? See where I’m going here? As stressful and complicated as the holiday season may seem, if you stay on a steady training plan, you can and will limit the physical and mental damage the holidays bring us.
