The holiday season is upon us, and this year, it’s unlike any other. As we approach the festive months of 2020, we’re navigating uncharted waters, and it’s crucial to stay motivated and committed to your fitness goals. In this email, we’ll tackle a common roadblock that often emerges during the holidays—the “too busy” excuse—and why it’s more important than ever to overcome it.

The “Too Busy” Conundrum:

During the holiday season, it’s all too easy to fall into the trap of feeling “too busy” to work out and maintain your fitness routine. You might have social commitments, family gatherings, or work obligations that seem to pile up, leaving you with minimal time for exercise. However, it’s crucial to remember that your health and well-being should never take a backseat, especially during these challenging times.

Reflecting on the Past:

This year has been filled with unexpected twists and turns, forcing us to reevaluate our priorities. At the beginning of the pandemic, we suddenly found ourselves with more time on our hands, yet many still let their fitness routines slip away due to stress and uncertainty. This is a valuable lesson to remember as we head into the holiday season.

Setting SMART Goals:

SMART goals are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-specific. With December 31, 2020, rapidly approaching, it’s time to set fitness goals that align with this deadline. What can you achieve by the end of the year to ensure you enter 2021 feeling fitter, healthier, and more energized?

Taking Action:

It’s not enough to set goals; you must also take action. Here are some steps you can implement right now:

  • Plan Your Meals: Preparing your meals ahead of time can help you make healthier choices during the holiday season.
  • Exercise Regularly: Dedicate 20-30 minutes to exercise 3-4 times a week. Even short workouts can make a significant difference.
  • Practice Mindfulness: Meditate for 5-10 minutes a day to manage stress and stay focused on your goals.
  • Seek Support: If you have a fitness coach or trainer, consult them for guidance and motivation.

Remember, you are not alone in this journey. Your health and wellness are worth the effort, even during the busiest times of the year. Let’s plan ahead, take action, and finish 2020 on a strong and positive note. I’ll be here, cheering you on every step of the way!
