The holiday season is finally here, and your schedule is, probably, filled with family obligations, and festive parties with all sorts of treats. It’s no wonder that many of us end up with expanded waistlines during the holiday season. Over-indulgence is known to be the leading cause of bulging waistlines and additional weight during the holiday season.
But it doesn’t always have to be like that. With the help of waist trainers, this year can be different. We can enjoy the holidays and stay in shape at the same time. Here are some helpful tips on how you can stay in shape during the holiday season:
- Stay committed to your waist training routine
With the holidays here, you might be tempted to set aside your waist trainer until after New Year. Don’t do that. Skipping your routine will only set you back, and you will have to start all over again in January. To stay in shape during the holidays, we recommend following your routine in which you wear your trainer for about 8-12 hours a day.
If you are worried that your waist trainer may not look good with your outfit, there are several ways that you can continue wearing a trainer without sacrificing your favorite outfits. A no-closure trainer is better if you don’t want the seams and hooks that would show through your clothes. Nude and black trainers are also great for everyday use.
- Use a waist trainer (workout band) during exercise
The holidays can be very disruptive in terms of waist training and exercise. To ensure that you stay in shape during the season, we recommend that you exercise for at least 15 minutes.
For better results, wear your workout band when you exercise. Try to do your workouts early in the morning when everyone else is still sleeping to avoid any distractions. Also, make sure you get plenty of rest.
- Wear your waist trainer when eating
With so many festivities going on around you during holidays, you might find yourself over-indulging and losing that hourglass figure that you had worked so hard for.
To avoid this, make sure that you have your waist trainer on when eating. This will help you with portion control because the trainer will be pressing your stomach. Track your food intake and activity level. You can have your food distributed evenly throughout the day instead of eating all at once. You can also plan some family activities, such as taking a walk around the neighborhood after dinner.
- Drink lots of water
Wearing a waist trainer can make you sweat and subsequently feel dehydrated. To avoid feeling dizzy, keep yourself hydrated by sipping water throughout the day. Avoid carbonated drinks and fruit juices and stick with water.
That’s it! If you follow these tips, you will be able to stay in shape during the holiday season. Just continue your waist training routine, use a workout band while exercising, wear your waist trainer when eating, stay hydrated, but above all, enjoy your holidays.
