According to an article in the New York Times the average person gains 7 to 10 pounds during the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That's a lot of extra "holiday cheer" for a person to gain in a one month period.
We know that the holidays are meant for giving, so how about giving your health and the environment the perfect gift by greening your exercise routine.
How to Green Your Exercise Routine
You may not think that a few simple actions can help you lose weight and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time, but if you follow these tips you'll be well on your way to a green exercise routine:
Try a Reusable Water Bottle
Walk, Run or Ride a Bike
Dress the Part
Plant a Garden
Save Water: Wash Your Towels Less
You shouldn't practice these tips only during the holidays. You should make them a part of your daily routine. You'll not only get in shape and help out the environment, but you'll also get a gift every day of the year instead of just on one day.
