You know how you wake up on a Monday and don’t want to get out of bed?
It happens to all of us.
Here are a few tips that will help you get and stay on track with your health and fitness goals…
Tip #1 – Practice Gratitude
It’s much easier to get excited about life when you think about all the things your blessings. Start your week by writing down 3 things that you are thankful for.
Tip #2 – Protect Your Sleep
It’s likely that your sleep has been off if you’ve been on holiday or if you’ve had an exciting weekend. Plan to get back on track as soon as you can. That means getting back on schedule right away. Get to bed at your regular time, even if you can’t fall asleep. Take care of your sleep environment by turning off electronics 30 minutes to an hour before bed, darken your room, no caffeine after 12 noon, don’t exercise before bed.
You can literally ’sleep yourself thin’ when you protect your sleep. Cortisol levels (the belly fat storing hormone) is elevated when you are sleep deprived, so do your best to stay rested. Try to keep a regular schedule, even on your days off.
Tip #3 – Detox by Drinking Water
Especially if you’ve been off your normal routine, it’s quite likely that you’re feeling bloated. The best way to off set this is to drink water, water and more water. Adding lemon to your water is even better because it will help to balance your PH.
Tip #4 – Get Your Sweat On!
Exercise is a natural anti-depressant, energizes you and will help you with your fat loss goals like nothing else. Make a non-negotiable appointment with yourself 3-5 times a week. You only need to sweat for 15 minutes or so to benefit.
Whether it’s a Monday, you’re returning from a holiday or you’re just in a rut, implementing these tips will help.
