The festive season is a frantic and exhausting time of the year, so here are some tips to help you stay in great shape when you’re busy…

It’s no secret that exercising, sleeping, and healthy eating can help you to be more positive, energetic, productive and creative. There’ just one hitch – you don’t always have as much time as you’d like to maintain this healthy balance.

Fortunately, there are ways to squeeze in good healthy habits even when your schedule is packed. Here are a few tips you can put into practice now:

  • Schedule workouts – add it to your calendar, as you would an important meeting.
  • Sleep – Getting enough sleep helps to increase your energy levels and helps your metabolism run as it should. On the other hand, not getting enough sleep makes it harder to stay committed to your workouts and slows down your metabolism.
  • Drink water throughout the day
  • Look for ways to be active throughout the day, like a quick walk during your lunch break.
