Move More this Thanksgiving

Make physical activity a part of your holiday plans. Adding activity to the holidays can help manage stress, improve sleep, aid in digesting meals, and create healthy traditions to share with your family.

Try our Thanksgiving themed strength workout below or any of our other workout videos. They’re perfect for doing at home and need minimal equipment, just a resistance band or other light weight, like a water bottle or can of beans.

Explore the great outdoors. The state of Virginia has natural beauty from the beaches to the mountains. Visit a Virginia State Park or a local park or trail to experience the fall leaves and long views once the leaves have fallen.

Games, like charades, Twister®, or Simon Says, are fun ways to get the whole family moving. In fact, family game night is a great tradition that should be done year round. Less screen time, more family time!
