March Madness can be a fun time of year to socialize and get enthusiastic about all things related to hoops, but how is it impacting your health? From how sedentary you are to what you’re eating and drinking, you might notice a connection between how you look and feel and how much game time you’re watching.
There are ways to enjoy this time of year without it taking a hit on your waistline. If you’re going to watch games, get up during commercial breaks and half-time to move around. Make sure you’re not eating or drinking a whole day’s worth of calories during a two-hour showdown. You can even take your earbuds to the fitness center and watch a game while using a treadmill, elliptical, or bicycle!
Special foods and drinks should be reserved for special occasions. Don’t let an entire month of basketball set your fitness and nutrition goals back! Be the champion of your health and commit to stay fit by being mindful of how much time you spend in front of the TV or at the sports bar!
