There’s an uncontested amount of joy surrounding vacations — the promise of warm weather (depending on where you’re going, of course) coupled with an opportunity to take a break and escape. And while all of these experiences are integral when it comes to planning your next trip, it’s also important to incorporate some wellness into your travels.
5 easy ways to work-out on Christmas vacation
1. Go on a morning walk
As soon as you arrive at your hotel or rental, lace up your running shoes and get outside for a walk. It’s a great way to see the town, and you’ll probably discover all sorts of small neighbourhood quirks you might have otherwise missed.
2. Turn pool and beach time into a workout
3. Sign up for a 5K, a 10K or community walk
4. Take a bike tour instead of a bus tour
When you’re exploring a new place, tours are great, but rather than signing up for one that puts you inside a bus, sign up for one that takes place on a bike. Loads of cities offer two-wheeled tours, and they’re great because you’ll burn calories while getting a different view of the terrain.
5. Get day passes at a nearby gym
