Young Woman Wearing Fitbit to Count Steps

Over the years, we’ve learned a lot about what actually works and what’s total BS when it comes to health and fitness. Some of our all-time favorite advice: Doing something, anything at all, is always better than nothing. It’s not only true, but the bigger takeaway is that sometimes (like during the holiday season) being realistic is far better than an all-or-nothing approach. That’s exactly the spirit behind our Just-Do-Something Challenge in partnership with Fitbit.

We don’t expect anyone to commit to an intense training plan this time of year, but we can help you avoid feeling like you need a total-body total-life makeover come January 1. The chart below makes it super simple to fit a little exercise into every day this month. You don’t need to plan anything in advance—nothing requires a change of clothes or any equipment. Just knock out each daily to-do within the 24-hour window.

But Wait, There’s More…

You could win a FREE Fitbit Charge HR™! Simply keep us posted on your progress all month using #holidayfit and you’ll automatically be entered to win. Our editors will be tracking your #holidayfit tweets, Instas, and Facebook posts starting December 1. At the end of the month, the two people who have inspired others to get moving the most will receive a special delivery from our friends at Fitbit, just in time for those (realistic!) New Year’s resolutions.*
