        u’re reading this because you hate your suit and tie and will do anything to avoid opening another Microsoft Office program today, you’ve come to the right place at Wander.Seek.Find.

        Trent used to be in your shoes chasing that American dream until he snapped, had a quarter-life crisis, and decided to hit the road following his passion for travel, writing, photography, and African animals.

        He’s on the road full-time, blogging about his adventures, working with hotels and tour companies, and just generally making up for the years he spent slaving away at his desk.

        But he doesn’t just blog about his travels (which range from the 5-star life to hiking the trail), he spends a considerable amount of time preparing his readership for taking that leap of faith and preparing themselves, both financially and psychologically, to take a leap of faith and chase their dreams!

                12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

                12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

                Christmas is approaching fast, and lots of people not only tend to ruin their usual diets, but they also gain a few extra pounds. Based on studies, the majority of people tend to gain additional weight during the holiday season that starts at the Thanksgiving Day and ends with the New Year celebrations. Excessive eating is claimed to be the main cause for the additional weight gain, but it is also due to lack of physical activity and exercise.

                A lot of individuals out there tend to set aside their fitness routines during the holidays since they believe that they do not have enough time to perform their workouts. And because they feel guilty after the holiday season, most of the gyms and fitness centers are packed with fresh members. Always bear in mind that you can still enjoy the holidays and stay fit at the same time. If you want to stay fit during the holiday season, especially during Christmas and the New Year’s Eve, here are some useful tips that might help you:

                1. Eat Before Heading Out

                First, it is best that you eat something before heading out to visits, trips or family dinners. By doing so, you will no longer be tempted to eat a lot or overindulge yourself since you have already eaten. Skipping on meals is not a good idea either, because you will only be forced to eat more later.

                2. Select The Treats

                Make sure to select the treats that you eat in a wise manner. You should choose something that you can only enjoy during the holiday season and not something that is readily available all the time.

                3. Avoid Skipping Meals

                Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast! Even though it can be tempting to skip on certain meals, believing that it will make up for the treats you consumed in the previous day, don’t do it because it will only lead to counterproductive results.

                4. Drink With Moderation

                It is best to regulate your drinking since alcohol, coke or other juices will only add more calories to the ones you already eaten!

                5. Be Active

                You should still perform your fitness routine whenever possible and if you can’t do that, simply walk more, park your car some distance away from the store or just use the stairs!

                6. Get Out Of The House

                Make the holidays a family affair and plan outdoor activities where everyone is involved. Even a snowball fight in the backyard will burn a lot of calories and will keep the children entertained.

                7. Don’t Skip Your Strength Workouts

                Always remember to perform your strength training in order to maintain that muscle mass you worked hard to get. You might be tempted to use lightweights and just do some cardio, but you can burn just as many calories by lifting weights. And with all of those extra stakes you had on the holiday meals, you might even gain some extra muscle. And this is much better than gaining some extra fat.

                8. Set Realistic Goals

                You should set realistic exercise objectives. Aim for at least half an hour per day and you will be very happy when you will achieve that. If you plan one hour or more and not achieve it, you will only end up disappointed.

                9. Enjoy Yourself

                Also make sure to set realistic diet plans! Trying to restrain yourself totally from some foods will only make you eat more. Feel free to enjoy the treats that you really love, but in small portions.

                10. Drink A Lot Of Water

                This can satiate your appetite as well as keep you hydrated at all times. And it will also prevent a possible hangover if you overdo it with alcohol.

                11. Eat Less And More Often

                Distribute your meals evenly throughout the day, and do not eat everything at once.  Instead of having 2 enormous meals, have 5 small ones.  Eat your dinner earlier and have a nice walk before going to bed.

                12. Prioritize Your Workouts

                Try to do them early in the morning while everyone else is still sleeping. This way you will also avoid remarks like “Oh, come on! It’s Christmas…”

                So there you go! Twelve simple tips that will help you avoid gaining weight during the winter holidays, but will also allow you to enjoy yourself and have a great time with your loved ones.

                Happy Holidays everyone!
