Dr. Perillo’s talking points on
Exercising During the Holiday Season

During the holidays everyone gets so busy and sometimes healthy habits
get thrown by the wayside. But, when you are so busy and stressed is
exactly when you need to stick with your routine.

Did you know that when you stop your regular exercise, your body de-compensates and there are negative physiological effects? That’s right—you start to lose some of the positive effects you worked so hard to achieve! My advice: maintain your exercise routine.

4 Reasons to Keep Your Fitness Routine Going During the Holidays:
  1. Reduces seasonal depression and anxiety. Shorter days and less sunlight
    cause many people to suffer with depression and anxiety. Exercise
    produces the release of encephalons and endorphins, which help to keep
    the mood uplifted.
  2. Decreases the holiday stress level. Holiday shopping, going to parties,
    increased entertaining, and financial pressures only add to the stress.
    Exercise helps your body to deal with the pressure on a physiological level.
  3. Boosts the immune system. The stress of the holidays can really run you
    down and the last thing you need is a cold or the flu.
  4. Helps stop weight gain. With all the social events that take place during the
    holidays; it is difficult for most people to maintain their present weight.
    Daily exercise helps to keep that in check.

Don’t let the season be the reason to derail your fitness goals. Bonus: Enjoy those extra merrymaking calories guilt-free!
