Healthy Activities for Thanksgiving
Run a Turkey Trot!
Each year, it can be a very common tradition for many organizations to organize a 5k run on Thanksgiving and call it a turkey trot. These are very popular and typically will take place in the morning. Many times your proceeds for running the race will go to a great cause. Challenge yourself and sign up for one this year. With them typically being in the morning, that should still give you plenty of time to enjoy time with your family later in the day.
Play football with your family.
Another, healthy but active tradition that some families may participate in on Thanksgiving is a nice, friendly but competitive game of touch football. You can get your daily dose of healthy exercise in and reward yourself with food after. Calories will likely still be burning after your workout anyway.
Play a board game to exercise your mind.
Games like Monopoly, Taboo, Chess, Trivia Board Games, etc. can be great ways to exercise your mind while still having fun with your family. It is so tempting to just eat a bunch of turkey and sides than fall asleep on the couch after but exercising your mind by playing a fun game with your family can a healthy alternative.
