Say goodbye to the cold mornings and hello to the longer daylight hours - summer is almost here! If Winter got the best of you and sent you into hibernation, that’s okay! Now is a great time to get back on track with your health, fitness, and exercise goals.
To help you feel your best this summer, I have listed some easy to follow fitness tips below. Don’t forget that habits aren’t acquired in a day, so try and incorporate these steps into your daily routine and they will become second nature to you in no time!
Exercise Once Per Day
Whether it is a home workout, a long walk, gym class, or yoga session, you will feel better after doing it! Exercising regularly is not only fantastic at enhancing your fitness, but it can also improve your sleep, skin’s appearance, help you build strong bones and muscles, and keep you in shape.
Drink at least 2L of Water
If you don’t already have a water bottle to keep track of your daily water consumption, it’s time to get one! When you are hydrated, you’ll experience bright skin, an enhanced mood, and improved digestion. Do you exercise regularly, eat a high-fibre diet, or live in a hot climate? If so, your body will require more towards 3-4 litres of water per day.
Nourish your body with 3 meals a day
Avoid skipping meals or living off lettuce, your body needs fuel to function! If you want your body to function optimally, you need to provide it with enough energy and essential nutrients. Spend a couple of hours on the weekend preparing nutritious meals (or meal components) for the week ahead, to ensure you have healthy food available to you at all times. Try to include a protein, carbohydrate, and healthy fat source within each meal and your body will thank you for it!
Consume 5 Servings Of Fruit And Vegetables
This one is a given! We’d all be lying if we said we didn’t feel our best when we are eating nutritious foods. Eating a variety of fruit and vegetables provides your body with essential nutrients that it needs to function optimally and helps you maintain a healthy gut and digestive system.
For a green boost, try adding Ultimate Greens by B Raw to your diet. This greens powder is packed with vegetable powders and fruit extracts that will leave you glowing from the inside out.
10 Thousand Steps A Day
Our bodies are built to be active and going for a walk (or two) is an effective way to strengthen your muscles, improve your circulation, and clear your mind after a busy day at work. Don’t underestimate the power of walking!
8 Hours Of Sleep Every Night
Sleep is so important for your overall health and wellbeing! Being well-rested can increase your productivity, strengthen your immune system, improve concentration, and enhance athletic performance. To get into a great sleep routine, start going to bed at the same time every night.
