However, rather than wanting to move around and burn off calories after this large meal, some people tell me they have to sit down afterwards. I actually feel the opposite, and always like to get up and walk after I eat. I have been told to sit down and relax after the meal, but I always find it stifling when others tell us how to best handle things. I would always get up and start moving and go for a walk, and no one was forced to go with me. I find it invigorating to move, which is why I am always walking or biking.
Many people up in the mountains go for meandering walks to burn off the large meal, and to enjoy the beautiful scenery. It is so much more enjoyable than watching some sports game or repeat show on TV, and those things can be recorded these days. So if you are feeling a bit full after your Thanksgiving dinner, a walk might be a good way to get moving and enjoy the amazing view.
