Not only is it important to make healthy food choices during the holiday season, but we should remind ourselves to stay active even with the weather cooling down. Some physical activities may be more difficult to perform in the winter time, but check out local senior centers or community centers to try the exercise classes they may offer.
Here are some other helpful reminders to stay healthy and active this holiday season:
- Take family walks or play more active games while meals are cooking
- Add a colorful variety of foods to your plate and consider portion sizes
- Be mindful and eat food slowly, allowing you to visit and talk with family members or friends
- Try a new exercise class at your local senior center or community center like Young at Heart Strength Training, Low Impact Aerobics, Tai Chi, or even a dance class!
