Staying Active Without Working Out: Holiday Edition
Holidays are for relaxing and taking a break from your usual schedule right? It can be so mentally and physically beneficial to unwind for a week and let your body relax instead of getting up at the crack of dawn for an intense workout. But taking break doesn't have to mean going stir crazy on a sun lounger all day! So to keep moving whilst still getting that much needed break, here's how you can get active on holiday without working out… it is a lifestyle after all!
There is no better way to explore a new destination than by foot. Get some fresh air and head off to discover the hidden beaches across the island, explore the cobbled streets of a city or hike to the top of a hill to watch the sunset. Even if you just stroll to the best local gelato shop… that’s what holidays are for right?
Want to get a little further and explore a little deeper than you can on foot? Biking is a great way to get around the local area and will keep you feeling active without busting out an intense HIIT workout. Get the whole family together and go off in search of some epic views.
Feeling a little hot and sweaty from all that sunbathing? Jump in the pool or sea to cool yourself off and get in a few lengths whilst you’re at it. Aim for 50 lengths before climbing back on to your sun lounger - it’s a tough life isn’t it!
Anyone for a game of volleyball? If you're anything like us, there is only so long you can sit on a beach without some form of entertainment! Persuade your friends or family to get involved in a friendly game of beach cricket or volleyball. You’ll be working up a sweat in no time when your competitive nature kicks in!
