Staying Fit during the Holidays with Bruce McCorry's Martial Arts written by: Master McCorry
Workout during Holidays
Santa is coming to town and it is once again time for holidays, shopping, celebration and fun. For many, holidays are an opportunity to take a break from everything they have been doing for a year – be it work, school or exercise. Holidays are a time when rules are relaxed. Well, taking a break from your hectic schedule is fine, but what about taking a break from your workout as well? Studies show that working out regularly and then suddenly stopping it for a period – usually the holidays – is unhealthy for your body. Such a pattern usually slows down your metabolism. Every time you stop working out, chances of gaining weight are higher. Every time you restart it, there are fewer chances of you losing weight again. Holidays are also a season when you relax your diet habits. Most of us don’t mind eating richer and larger meals – after all, it’s the holidays! This habit calls for the fact that you should give more attention to your health during this time. Martial Arts – A Holiday Solution? If we face the facts, none of us are inclined to work out during holidays. We are either too relaxed, or too busy thinking of shopping and planning, that even thinking about exercising becomes difficult. But what if we opt for something easier and fun? Martial arts can be a solution. Even light martial arts like Karate, Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Taekwondo can be a powerful alternate for heavy exercise. Martial arts will help you to remain physically fit and strong. They will sooth your mind and rejuvenate it after a whole year of stressful working. Martial arts will recharge your body and mind alike so that you will be better prepared to face your work better when it comes to the end of the holidays. It will also make sure that your year-long workout plan doesn’t suffer a break in between. If you choose to learn martial arts with your friends or family, it can also be a fun pastime during the holidays. In fact, most of the people who start martial art practice during the holidays cannot resist continuing it even after their work and school has restarted. They maintain their martial arts practice, some as a hobby, some others as a refuge from their stressing work.
