How to Stay Active This Holiday Season

how to stay active this holiday seasonWhether it’s the winter blues or just holiday indulgence, it can be difficult to stay as fit in the colder months as it can be in the summer. Luckily, we have a few ideas as to how to stay active this holiday season:

Get into snow sports

Living in Vernal gives us great access to awesome winter sports, like skiing, snowboarding, skating, and snowshoeing. Try one out this winter season.

Go for a walk

Winter walks can be beautiful and quite cozy when you bundle up appropriately. They’re also a great way to maintain heart health and they don’t require too much stamina. Just make sure the walkways aren’t icy before heading out.

Play active games

f you have kids at home, try playing hide-and-seek indoors or, better yet, get out the old Wii and play your favorite Wii sports.

Take a class

If working out at the gym by yourself just isn’t enticing to you, sign up for a class, like yoga or cycling. Better yet, skip the gym and sign up for a beginner’s dancing or karate class.

Build a snowman or go sledding

Outdoor activities don’t have to be strenuous. Just getting out of the house to make a snowman or go sledding with friends and family will brighten your spirits and boost your endorphins.

Fun Ways to Celebrate Labor Day

fun ways to celebrate labor day

The United States has been celebrating Labor Day since the late 1800s. It was started as a way to recognize all the work American workers have done to create the country we know today. While most of us might spend the day relaxing and having one last summer barbecue, here are a few other ways to celebrate Labor Day.

  • Shop local. Small, local businesses are the backbone of America. During the month of September (or beyond), try to do as much of your shopping at local business as you can. You might find your new favorite store or restaurant.
  • Spread love. While many of us get the day off, some people don’t. Bake some goodies and take them to your local fire or police station to show how much you appreciate their hard work.
  • Take a tour. Find a local farm or factory and schedule a tour to see how the products you buy make it to your home.
  • Have fun. There are quite a few festivals over Labor Day weekend here in the Utah Valley. Find one you and your family would enjoy and give it a try.

At L&L Motor Co., we hope everyone has a fun and relaxing Labor Day weekend.
