What activity makes you happier and leaves you feeling more balanced and fulfilled than anything else in the world? I am talking about something that makes you smile with contentment and actually energizes you, often for a few days following it.
Ideally think about something that you can do near your own hometown so that you have the ability and chance to participate in this activity on a frequent basis.
If you are like me, you tend to over eat the most when (1) you are sitting around bored and hanging out at home and (2) when a spread of sugary and/or savory deliciousness is laid out in front of you in the ultimate foodie’s buffet just ready for the grazing! Put these 2 together and you have the definition of Christmas Day for many of us. Add a little spiked egg nog into the equation to blur your judgement and you will be eating until the cows come home…literally.
For many of us, the holidays signal a time to relax, take time off work, and spend time with family and friends. While this is always a welcome change, it also disrupts our normal schedule. Many of us are in different time zones suffering from jet lag, while others stay up way past our typical bedtimes so that we can reconnect with old friends. What do we do to combat this change in our circadian rhythms? And why is sleep so important?
At DIAKADI, the heart of our mission is that no workout should be generic, since no specific workout would be ideal, safe and efficient for everyone.
So when we were asked to create the ultimate destination workout we knew that it had to adhere to the following 3 rules:
- The workout must be completely unreliant on equipment
- Clients must be able to complete the workout in even the smallest of spaces (ie. A New York Hotel room)
- Above all, the form instruction for each exercise must be clear for clients, with clear progression and regression options so that people of all levels, backgrounds and goals would be able to adapt the exercise programs to match their individual needs
With the combo of the lower humidity that comes with cold weather, the tendency for people to stay huddled inside by the fire, higher stress levels, lower sleep hours, and of course the balanced holiday diet of booze, cookies and candies, the cold virus is in its glory during this time of year. So look out Granny!
Below, I have gathered the leading ways to successfully fight off the common cold, as well as some key ideas on keeping the symptoms and duration of a cold to a minimum if you are already sick.
Are you and your body truly ready for what is about to happen next week?
This is how I see it. You have booked a coach ticket using miles on Southwest to see your family in Milwaukee, connecting through Miami (3 hour layover), on a red eye. Your sister begs you to haul back all the sour dough bread and See’s candy you can carry-on so that she can give them as gifts to all of her neighbors. It is Christmas after all, so you agree (Note to Self: See Day 1 about learning how to say ‘No’). Then, when your favorite niece graciously explains that she will be giving up her fabulous Disney Princess canopy twin bed with the lumpy mattress for you to sleep in, I have a feeling that your body will be in need of a little TLC the next morning.
