With the change of season comes a change in our eating and exercise habits – more food and less exercise. Holiday time generally means more traveling, eating and relaxing and less physical activity. By the time New Year’s rolls around we arm ourselves with resolutions to take off those extra holiday pounds and get back on the treadmill. But with a little advanced planning you can avoid the holiday bulge and save your New Year’s Resolutions for other goals.


Do maintain regular physical activity, even when you’re traveling. Staying physically active will help you ward off those unwanted holidays pounds.

Yoga can do more for you than you may think. Yoga can help you gain strength, fitness and flexibility – all of which can help you prevent and recover from injuries, and help improve breathing and concentration. Yoga is a terrific form of non-impact cross training for all other sports. In addition to all of that, maintaining a yoga practice can help you feel grounded and better able to deal with the daily stresses of life.
