Why should you stay active throughout the festive season?

Stay Active

With Christmas approaching, it’s all too easy to stop exercising! However, December is actually a great time to continue your workout routine and to stay active. Once the Christmas parties start it is extremely easy to swap 30 minutes of exercise for an extra drink at the pub. Whilst letting your hair down will not harm your health and fitness. The festivities tend to continue the whole way through December and well into January. If you maintain a few healthy habits, it will be much easier to start your regular routine in the New Year.
