For many people both young and old the Christmas/New Year period is a time of reflection and planning for the new year.Whilst this is an important thing to do, it is something that could be done at any time you feel that you are off track with your health and fitness goals. You don’t need to wait, and you don’t need to do it just because it is a new year! This January I encourage you to enjoy life! Resist the temptation to beat up on yourself or set unrealistic goals and simply enjoy your holidays! Move in a way that feels good for you from a holistic point of view. Spend your time doing the things that support you and your loved ones, the things that fill your cup and make you feel good. Spend less time focusing on the “shoulds and coulds” and just enjoy your time with family and friends the way you want to. Maybe that does involve setting new health and fitness goals for the year or maybe it doesn’t – either way there should be no judgement, no pressure. Top tips for holiday time top ups
