Your secret to staying holiday healthy? Be the life of the party!
When you’re excited, your body releases endorphins, which in turn trigger a feeling of exhilaration. Be your bubbliest self and you’ll become to busy to linger desolately by the buffet table…and keep your heart rate and metabolism up, as a bonus.
Yuk it up
You can burn up to 40 calories just by laughing for 15 minutes. Even better? A real gut-busting guffaw is a great ab workout. So brush up on your bad knock-knock jokes and don’t be afraid to bomb. Laughter is infectious—if you think it’s funny and start laughing, others will follow suit.
Hit the dance floor
When the tunes are playin’, get your body swayin’! Grab your girls and get down, you dancing queen, you. A mere half-hour can work off that sugar cookie you scarfed…
Getting drawn into an interesting conversation is what makes a good party a great one. Get chatty with your chicas (or a cutie you’ve never met before—introduction, please!). The minutes fly by and you’ll be left forgetting about the awesome-looking pizza you walked past on your way in.
