Holiday Tunes
Turn on your favorite holiday radio station and move and groove to a song! One person in the family operates the radio and turns on/off the song. When the music stops..freeze! Whomever is still moving when it stops must do 15 jumping jacks. This is a great cardio exercise that won’t even feel like exercise!

Here is another fun activity to try! Turn on a holiday song ...example JINGLE BELLS. Listen and everytime the song says “Jingle Bells,” you must jump up and down 5 times! Pick a word in a song that is often said, and incorporate an exercise when that word is said in the song.

Remember to release your stress this holiday season every day. Thirty minutes of exercise helps release endorphines; so you are HAPPY all holiday season long!

Run and jump all day

release your stress today!!
