‘Tis the Season of I’m too Busy to Exercise

When life is too stressful to stretch, strengthen and sweat, that's when you need it most.
 
And yet, even our regulars tend to go AWOL between Thanksgiving and the New Year! Lately, we instructors go to bed with waitlists and wake up with a half-dozen cancellations and a few spots to spare in class.
 
A truism is that you are either moving forward with your health or you're moving backwards. So move forward, even if it's just a little.
 
The fat-burning, mood-boosting benefits of exercise last about 48 hours. After that, if you don't crank up your heart rate and challenge your muscles, your metabolism starts to slow. And all that unreleased stress hunting for the latest Nintendo for the teen in your life? Your body's response is to pump out cortisol -- the flight or fight chemical. Cortisol can make you crave carbs and sugar, which leads to a merry-go-round of binge eating, weight gain, and feeling down. Sound like you? Just get back to the studio now! Resolve not to wait until everyone makes their resolutions January 1.
 
Schedule time for yourself! You ARE important. Get comfortable with letting people know that your classes are important to you and you'll not only affirm it in your head, you may influence the people around you to exercise too!
 
A few other suggestions: READ MORE
  1. Schedule your classes two weeks in advance; you are more likely to stick to a plan if you have one. Besides, it's really guilt-inducing to click that "cancel" button!
  2. Unpredictable day? Try early morning classes -- less gets in the way the earlier you start.
  3. Have family visiting? Bring them to class or schedule a private class for family ($100 for 4) If that's not feasible, leave a pot of coffee, a bowl of fruit, a sweet note, and hit up an early morning class.
  4. Sign up for our Happy New You 15-classes-in-21 Days Challenge -- it starts January 3!
