HOLIDAY FITNESS GIFT GUIDE 2017

WFF Holiday Gift Guide 2017

 

It happens every year at this time. That same holiday question.

What gift are we going to give so-and-so this year???

 

Well, if you’re still looking for the perfect health/wellness/fitness gift for the friends and loved ones on your holiday list, I’ve put together a little gift-giving inspo to help you find the perfect health and wellness treat they’ll love. And as a bonus, there are actually two lists. One is Portland-local (yes, of course, you can still buy if you’re out of town) and the other is, well, not local. I have no affiliate connection to anything on either list, btw. I just think these things are super cool! Think of this as “Tami’s Favorite Things” 😉

HOLIDAY FITNESS | HOW TO KEEP FIT DURING THE HOLIDAYS

How to stay fit during the holidays

 

T’is the season, right?

Too much food. Too little exercise. Overindulgence abounds.

I totally get it. When you’re enjoying time with friends and family at this time of year, healthy eating and sweaty HIIT fitness workouts might be the last thing on your mind. Just because it’s the holiday season, however, doesn’t mean you have to skip every workout and jump head first onto the holiday treat table for the next month, though.  You can absolutely enjoy a perfectly “holly jolly” time AND still maintain your fitness and overall wellness, too. The key is to enjoy a little and then reset by going back to healthier habits throughout the season. Here’s how:

5 WAYS TO GET MORE FIT IN YOUR OFFICE NOW

Get fit at work

 

If you’re at work right now, there’s a good chance you’re sitting down. If you’re not at work, well there’s still a pretty good chance much of that work time was still spent where? Yep, sitting down. In fact, I’d bet you’re probably sitting down right now as you read this, too.

 

By itself, there’s nothing wrong with sitting – sometimes, and especially while you work because in business that’s pretty much where the magic happens as far as productivity and value delivery for clients and customers. The problem is we tend to sit WAY too much. In fact, a recent Washington Post article suggests that the average office worker sits a whopping 10 hours per day while another report suggests 86% of us are doing it even though most of us don’t like it. If you’re a part of that percentage, you’ve probably already realized that all that sitting is NOT good. And, not just where it comes to your figure and how your clothes fit, but also for your health and how you feel every day.

FITNESS SPRING TRAINING | 7 TIPS TO FRESHEN UP YOUR FIT LIFE

 

It’s finally here. SPRING.

 

Time to chuck off the bulky sweaters, watch the snow melt and get ready for sunshine and warmer weather – yay! Hard to believe that here in Portland (and so many other places around the country, for that matter) we were up to our eyeballs in snow and ice just a few short weeks ago, right?

 

Well, if you’re like me you’re probably thinking about doing some spring cleaning around your home or office. This is the perfect time to do a little self-care “spring cleaning” as well, and to freshen up that tired winter fitness routine. This can help you clear out the old mental clutter that may have accumulated and reclaim that sense of excitement and motivation you felt back in January. It’s also a good time to assess your progress and review areas of your life that could use some extra TLC. Here are seven ideas to get you going.

Health and Wellness | February is all about the heart

 

Hey, it’s February!

The month when warm thoughts of love, affection and romance abound. But that’s not all. February is also all about the heart – American Heart Month to be more precise!

It’s the perfect time to join the fight against heart disease and stroke, and to refresh that commitment you made at the start of the New Year to living a healthier lifestyle. And, a good time to show a little self-love and start taking better care of your heart so you can keep being there for those you care about. Remember that plan you made a couple weeks back?

January is here! With it, no doubt you’ve noticed the huge increase in diet and fitness program promotions right now – they’re everywhere!

Fortunately… this isn’t one of them. Yay!

Now, don’t get me wrong. Your exercise and eating habits are really, really, REALLY important. So much so that they’re even two of the three key sections in the WFF Goals Planner. But, there’s more you can do to ramp up your health and fitness that that doesn’t involve working out or even a formal eating plan, but can still have a huge impact on your life, whether your goal is to lose weight, get in better shape, get stronger, train for a sport, feel great, whatever.

GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR TRAINING TIME

get the most out of your training time WFF

 

Whether we realize it or not, we only get one hundred sixty-eight hours to do whatever we need to do each week.

That’s it.

Not only is this number finite, the time is irreplaceable. That means you only have one opportunity to live today’s date and to do whatever you want to do – on this date. So, setting aside some of your time and associated energy each week to train and exercise is an investment not only in your health and well being, but also in your life so you’ll want to make sure it truly counts, right? Learning how to get the most out of every training session can not only help you to see and feel results faster, you’ll also perform better in your every day life as well.

For many people the holidays are a particularly hectic and stressful time of year.

Schedules seem jam packed even on normal days, but now there are family get-togethers, holiday parties, extra food prep, shopping and more. It may be tempting to skip a few hours of sleep to get it all in, but that’s a bad idea for your health and will actually only lead to even more stress.

 

Getting enough sleep each night is vital to your fitness as well as your long term health.

For many people Thanksgiving is the start of a very busy season filled with family functions, get-togethers with friends, shopping, holiday events and, of course, making and eating the special foods and treats we only enjoy at this time of year.
