Four Tips in Four Days - Keeping Your Chinese New Year Weekend Active

The Spring Festival marks the start of the Lunar New Year celebrations, and it is also a time of family gatherings, reunions and endless celebrations over food and drinks. To start your Year of the Monkey on a right note, here are some tips to clear your mind and body in between those reunions and during the holidays!

6 February 2016, Saturday - Enjoy the sea breeze
Head on down to East Coast Park with your friends and family and enjoy a nice morning walk along the beach. If you are feeling up to it, increase your fun and cardio intensity by renting a bicycle or a pair of rollerblades! If you prefer a casual stroll along the beach instead, why not incorporate ten squats or lunges every five minutes?

7 February 2016, Sunday - View from the top
Enjoy a bird's eye view of our forest canopy at the Central Catchment Nature Reserve (MacRitchie) TreeTop Walk. As the 250m-long freestanding suspension bridge is in the heart of Reserve, make sure you are wearing proper footwear, as you will be trekking along steep slopes - tone up your legs and increase your cardiovascular activity by brisk walking up the hills!

8 February 2016, Monday - Clear your mind and body
Step outside, away from the hustle and bustle of Chinese New Year gatherings, and enjoy some 'me' time as you bask in the fresh air. Take a walk in your neighbourhood park, or venture to Singapore's scenic parks such as Southern Ridges, and clear your mind as you enjoy all that nature has to offer - while you are at it, bring along your yoga mat and do a few rounds of sun salutation, which also help to improve your digestion and detoxify your body!

9 February 2016, Tuesday - A family affair
Instead of sitting around the TV, organise a few games that can be enjoyed before, after or during family gatherings! Feel less guilty eating those pineapple tarts by organising fun, outdoor games such as badminton, jump rope or football, which can be enjoyed in your backyard or at the neighbourhood playground.
