Holiday Survival Tips
Written By: Bethany Marie

The New Year is upon us! We have enjoyed being your chosen gym over the past year and look forward to what 2024 has to offer. Here are some wellness tips that you may like to incorporate in the upcoming holiday season.

Remember the Reason for the Season

This time of year can be especially stressful for many. If you find yourself in a tense situation with family, traffic, long lines and the like, remember to take a moment for yourself to breathe and practice gratitude. Trying something like a yoga class (we have many at FHC!) may help you to practice mindfulness and reconnect you with a sense of calm in your body.

Set Attainable New Year's Resolutions

Try to set goals that are attainable and realistic. If you have a fitness resolution, maybe consider asking someone to help keep yourself accountable. This may be a partner, friend, or even going so far as to hire a personal trainer. We are happy to announce that our very own FHC staff Gianno Maliani is now a certified personal trainer, ready to help you improve your physical fitness and strength. You may also like to schedule a FREE 1:1 fitness assessment with any of the personal trainers at FHC to help you reach your goals. Inquire at the Front Desk for more details.

Try to Stay Active

It can be easy to forget to continue healthy habits during the holidays with many events and get-togethers. Try to stay active and continue your healthy habits and routines if possible, even when your calendar is very packed. This way, it will not be as difficult to return to the gym and other health activities after the holidays have passed. Help yourself out by staying consistent and also allowing yourself some grace to enjoy the holidays with loved ones.

Ask for Help

Remember to take it easy on yourself and to be gentle if you fall short of your resolutions and goals. Consistency is more important than perfection! Try to regain your focus and ask for support from family, friends, or your FHC trainers to help you stay on track.It is more than okay to ask for help.
