Many of us travel for Thanksgiving either to see family or friends and there is a lot of catching up to do. I highly suggest playing the catch-up game while on the move. Don't just sit on the couch and gab, talk while you walk. You can plan a hike, an urban hike, or a casual stroll. Just get moving!
You could also take this one step further (no pun intended) and make a gym date with friend. This way you can talk with your buddy on side-by-side ellipticals, burn some calories and get the good gossip, too.
