Diwali is less than a week away, and preparations are already on to mark the occasion with traditional zeal. This necessitates splurging on Diwali decorations, purchasing new clothing, and preparing a house party with a rich feast. After all, this is one of those Indian occasions where a variety of sweets and deep-fried dishes are required. It’s natural to be preoccupied with preparations and find it difficult to fit in a workout during the lead-up to the festivities. But don’t panic; we’ve got a few ideas to help you maintain your fitness program even during the Diwali season.
Keep your fitness program from being put on hold by following these simple tips.
1) Dance, Move And Have A Good Time
Festivals are the perfect opportunity to let loose. If you can’t stop yourself from feeling bad about skipping your workout, how about dancing your way into your Diwali celebration? Yes, we mean it in the literal sense. Dance is both a full-body workout and a lot of fun. When calling visitors to invite them to your party, don’t slouch on the couch; keep moving around the house.
2) Make a schedule
Fitness freaks may not need to stick to a rigid daily schedule because they are already in a good routine. During the holidays, though, your schedule may be thrown off. So, it’s best if you plan all of your activities a day ahead of time, allowing time for some exercise.
3) Stick to Your Workout Routine
To be honest, it doesn’t matter how many calories you burn as long as you work out every day, even if it’s for a short period of time. You may not be able to commit much time to your workout during the festival, but there are methods to get up early and exercise for at least 15-20 minutes so that you don’t miss out totally.
4) Bodyweight Workouts
You usually can’t find time to go to the gym during festivities like Diwali. And for a few days, that’s fine. You can switch to various workouts that don’t require any equipment, such as body weight exercises. Crunches, planks, squats, and burpees come to mind. These exercises can be done in the privacy of your own home.
5) Take Long Walks
Because of guests who may have arrived well before Diwali, you may not be able to accomplish anything at home. There is, however, a way out: get up early in the morning and take a long, brisk walk. Alternatively, go for a run/jog to get your heart rate up. Do you want to make sure you keep to your schedule? Make it a group activity by giving your visitors a walking tour of your neighborhood. This will allow you to get some exercise during the day.
A few minutes of exercise can help you stay energized, enhance your mood, and reduce worry, so try these simple ways to stay on track this Diwali.
