LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - The holidays can add unwanted stress to our everyday lives. The preparation can sometimes take a toll on us and we forget one important thing: staying healthy.

Registered Dietitian Danielle Morton shared staying fit for the holidays can improve the longevity and mortality rate of our everyday life.

“We know that exercise boosts your immunity and we also know a healthy diet boosts your immunity, so kind of along the lines of what we’ve already been talking about, staying active,” said Morton.

Fitt Life’s Owner and Personal Trainer Casey Adams shared how being aware of what you eat can help avoid gaining a pound or two this holiday season.

“The first thing is kind of making it a non-negotiable and get started. From there anything is a start, whether it’s walking more or if it’s watching your portion size, as far as your food count goes, or if it’s just getting into a gym or just at home doing some form of exercise. It can be an online thing it can be a group of girls that go walking together, whatever it is, as long as you get started,” said Adams.

Family involvement with fitness can also make staying healthy fun and stress-free.

“Something me and my family do to try to stay fit and keep healthy throughout the holidays is we get outside. We go on walks, we go on bike rides, we just make sure that whatever we’re doing, we’re still getting outside, even if it’s not our typical routine. We tend to get out of routine throughout the holidays. So thinking ahead about activities that you can do with your family is really important,” said Morton
