Thanksgiving affords many of us the opportunity to enjoy a big meal surrounded by family, friends and loved ones. If you love good food like we do, then these end of year holidays are something to look forward to. While it's common to over indulge when there are so many wonderful options, it's usually not quite as easy to get out of the chair for some exercise. Exercise this time of the year is critical. We do face some obstacles though. Obstacle #1: One more helping. Unfortunately, lifting a fork is not enough work to count as exercise. Obstacle #2: Sleepiness. Let's face it...too much turkey can induce a food coma. Tryptophan is a real amino acid that produces sleep inducers, serotonin and melatonin. Obstacle #3: Weather. Yes, it's that time of year when cold, snow, sleet, and rain produce some potentially nasty conditions for outside exercise.
Here's the good news...all of these obstacles can be overcome with will power, self control, and either warm clothes or indoor exercise. Still, overcoming obstacles is easier said than done. So take one step at a time, think positive thoughts, and soon enough you'll be working up a good healthy sweat!
See Scott Mendelson's article in our Discover Blog for advice on getting that much needed exercise during these final weeks of the year.

"Every day we’re exposed to a barrage of assaults from the air we breathe, the water we drink and the chemicals we come into contact with. Our modern world a toxic soup and we can’t help but bathe in it.
