Your health, wellbeing, and fitness goals are our top priority at FIT. So whether you’re unwinding in the sauna after work or jump-starting your morning with a HIIT class – you can experience all aspects of health and wellness offered at each FIT club with our All-Club Membership.

What is Wellness

Wellness is more than reaching for your daily greens and scheduling a full-body workout. “Wellness is the act of practicing healthy habits on a daily basis to attain better physical and mental health outcomes,” sourced by Global Wellness Institute.

As we work towards an optimal state of health and wellbeing, we encounter a multi-facilitated health cycle – which includes your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, and environmental health. As people adopt attitudes and lifestyles to improve their health, they enrich their wellbeing by being proactive and preventative towards many diseases.

The holiday season is a much-anticipated period to spend with family and relax; however, it can completely throw you off track on your wellness routine!

From rushing around airports to waiting hours in traffic, the angst of the holiday season can often result in a holiday burnout. It’s harder to stay mentally and physically healthy in a season of high pressure. But with these five tips, you’ll be sure to stay healthy during the holiday season.

Put Mindful Eating into Practice

It’s easy to fall into a pattern of stress-eating over the holiday season. Studies even show that with more stress, there is also an increase in cravings for high fat and sugar-filled foods, in addition to a spike in hunger. Instead, experts recommend mindful eating (which doesn’t mean avoiding the delicious and indulgent holiday treats), bringing more awareness to what you’re eating during the holidays.

Another way to practice mindful eating includes boosting the nutritional value of what you’re eating, like adding a portion of fruits or veggies to the serving. It’s an easy way to get the best of both worlds.

The takeaway: avoid mindlessly eating and enjoy food while boosting the nutritional profile when you can!

Stay Moving

The holiday season is for relaxation, so instead of high-impact classes every day, find daily movement that you enjoy! Not to mention the benefits of incorporating exercise into your routine for that endorphin boost or “happiness” feeling in the body.

Some simple exercise examples can be a brisk walk around the neighborhood with family or a gentle yoga class to stretch out tense muscles.

Don’t Lose Sight of What Counts: Mindful Thinking

Whether you find yourself in a family argument or waiting in endless lines, try to think of the situation from a larger perspective. Some questions to consider before starting a dispute or disagreement:

Yes, these situations can be taxing, but don’t let a small moment of frustration ruin the day or the family event. The best way to anticipate these situations is to know what might trigger you during a stressful situation.

Prioritize a Sleep Schedule

One of the first things to go during the holiday season is a sleep schedule. When holiday parties with friends and family mix with alcohol and less nutritious foods, this also makes sleeping difficult. When you’re tired, you’re more than likely to get triggered more easily with family as well. It is also proven that sleep depreciation includes difficulty concentrating, memory problems, mood swings, and low energy levels.

Experts say that prioritizing sleep around this season can help boost your mood and boost your immune system. So if you have obligations for three nights in a row, pick one night to catch up on your sleep!

Make a Wellness-Inspired New Years Resolutions

The stress behind New Year’s Resolutions may leave you feeling uninspired to follow through with your resolutions. Instead, many people find themselves overwhelmed and compare their wellness journey to those around them.

The key is to make resolutions that are realistic to your lifestyle. If you want to live a more wellness-forward lifestyle, try setting small goals to meditate or go to yoga class a few times a week. Start with small goals each week that build up to an overarching resolution.

Find your own wellness path with FIT by signing up for a fitness membership or health consultation with one of our world-class personal trainers.

Here are our top hacks from our Fit Personal Trainers that you can use to stay on track for your New Years Resolution.

How to Setup a Weekly Workout Routine

It’s important to set your intention for your resolutions and look into yourself on a deeper level. What drives you? What is going to motivate you to change? Pinpoint your intention and keep it at the forefront of your mind when the going gets tough.

Make your workouts part of your routine. Set them in your calendar and plan your day around them. This allows you to respect the time you set aside for any other important date. In addition, viewing your workout as an essential part of your day will help you stay dedicated to your mental and physical wellbeing.

You can easily set up a routine by scheduling consistent workouts with a Fit Personal Trainer. Having the accountability of a Fit Personal Trainer can help push you to stay on track with your workout calendar. Have you thought about working with a Fit Personal Trainer?

Working Out in Intervals

You don’t have to necessarily work out for an extended period to reach your fitness goals, especially if you have a busy day. You can receive a great calorie burn and endurance boost with brisk walks, light jogs, or an energizing HIIT workout. A little bit can go a long way!

Next time you’re at FIT, try this HIIT Workout from Rachel, a trainer from FIT Solana Beach.

One minute of each, repeating four times:

Importance of Recovery

Working out in either extended periods or high intensities can create uncomfortable soreness and even result in injury. Our trainers recommend stretching for five to 10 minutes after your workout.

It’s important to stretch your muscles because exercise depletes your muscle glycogen, which causes muscle tissue to break down. Giving yourself enough time to stretch and recover allows your body to naturally “fix” the soreness issue. Try stretching in our premium saunas and steam rooms to help your muscles recover faster.

Trainer Tip: Working in time to stretch helps further the increase in mobility for future workouts.

Trying Out New Workouts

Trying out a new workout will keep you moving throughout the year. Don’t brush off yoga just because you can’t touch your toes or feel intimated to try a HIIT workout if you’re new to weight lifting. Fit Group Fitness is a welcoming community to support you during your wellness journey. Trying out new classes will keep exercise a habit, and better yet, FIT offers unlimited group fitness so you can build up your schedule with new and exciting workouts!
