Staying Healthy & Active this Silly Season

Updated: Dec 17, 2023

Silly season, what a fun time of Year! The sun is out, the wines are flowing, our social calendars are bursting and our exercise routine starts to drop down the priority list. So what can we do to take care of our bodies, and minds, through the Summer?  

Here at Featherstone, we are always looking for ways to help you prioritise your health by making it fun, accessible, and convenient. We have shared our favourite ways to keep you healthy and active during the holiday season:  

  1. PLAN ACTIVE ACTIVITIES like making your coffee date a walking date, playing backyard cricket at your family gathering or going for a walk along the beach instead of lounging on the sand are all perfect ways to integrate movement into your holiday schedule. 

  2. SCHEDULE TIME FOR MOVEMENT - Amidst the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, prioritize your well-being by scheduling dedicated time for movement. Whether it's a morning Pilates class, a morning walk/ jog, or quick home workout carving out time ensures that staying active becomes a non-negotiable part of your routine. Our Featherstone On Demand platform offers a wide variety of online movement classes ranging from 10-60 minutes. With new releases each week, there is something for everyone no matter where you are in your fitness journey. 

  3. HYDRATE - Don't forget the power of water this holiday season. Hydration is key to maintaining energy levels, supporting digestion, and curbing unnecessary snacking. Carry a reusable water bottle with you and make it a habit to sip throughout the day to keep your body well hydrated. 

  4. PRIORTISE SLEEP - A well-rested body is more likely to handle the festivities and stay active. Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night to recharge and wake up ready to take on the day with vitality. 

  5. PRACTICE MINDFULNESS -  Amidst the festive whirlwind, give yourself the gift of presence by incorporating mindfulness into your holiday routine. Take moments to breathe deeply, observe the beauty around you, and be fully engaged in the present. Whether it's enjoying a quiet cup of tea, taking a mindful walk-in nature, or simply pausing to appreciate those around you, mindfulness brings a sense of calm and clarity. By being mindful, you can navigate the holiday hustle with greater ease, savouring the magic of the season and creating lasting memories with a more centred mind. 

As we embrace the joy of the holiday season, it's essential to remember that prioritizing our health adds an extra layer of enjoyment to the festivities. By weaving these habits into the fabric of your celebrations, you not only maintain your vitality but also create lasting memories with a body and mind that are truly in sync. Here's to a season of joy, health and the perfect blend of silliness and self-care! 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Featherstone
