Quit rushing with the manic crowd, but relax and soak in the festivities with a longer and less crowded stroll instead. You’ll be surprised by the distance you can go this holiday season.

#3 Step to the beat

Nifty dance moves or not, the New Year countdown is your chance to step it up and groove to the beat. As long as you’re rocking it, who cares if you dance with two left feet?

#4 Forget the car

With the manic holiday traffic, leave your car behind and ride the train. It’s easy on the nerves and you’ll get more steps in.

#5 Tail that coffee trail

Kopi Siu Dai, Soy Milk and Peach Red Tea! Don’t settle for just the one delicious drink during your shopping escapades. Follow that aromatic trail and go café hopping.

#2 Plan ahead

Plan a visitation route with the homes that are within the same area; that way you can just walk it!

 

#3 Avoid guilt-tripping

One too many tarts while visiting? Avoid that guilt-trip by taking the stairs instead of the elevator whenever you can!

 

#4 Ready to serve

Be quick on your feet to serve your guests when they pay you a house visit.
And if you’re out of drinks and ice, step up to make that run to the supermarket.

Jogging for 5mins

Brisk walking for 15mins

#5 Tasteful company

Hunting for new clothes is such a tradition over the Lunar New Year. Nothing beats doing it with a friend. Be that friend. Besides the chance for a walk, it’s also a great time for bonding.
