It’s easy to skip a workout and it’s even easier to find a million reasons why, especially when it seems the world speeds up and commitments pile on. It may be the most wonderful time of the year and the busiest time of the year, but it’s also the perfect time to treat yourself to something that improves your overall health and wellbeing. That something is…you guessed it, exercise! When the stresses of the holidays mount, when you’ve had a few too many cookies, that’s when it helps to take a step back and carve out time to exercise. Exercise for stress relief, exercise for better sleep, exercise because you can. Taking time for yourself is the gift that keeps on giving.
