New Year New You
The Holiday Season comes and goes all too quickly, and it’s hard to get back into the groove of things. You ate more than you probably should have, and you likely spent too much time on the couch…now you need to catch up on work again. It’s okay, you’re human, and let’s be honest, it generally happens every year. But that doesn’t mean it needs to be a constant struggle every time. Sometimes, we make it harder on ourselves than we really need to because we don’t take care of our bodies – we didn’t make the time or we failed to realize just how important our physical health is to our overall wellness.
A healthy body leads to a healthy mind. How can you maintain a high level of energy and stay focused throughout the day if you are distracted by pain or fatigue? Are you really able to stay on point and be the most effective version of YOU? By taking simple steps to improve your physical health, you can kickstart 2018 by striving for constant and personal self-improvement. With less stress and a clear mind, you’re on the right path to a successful new year. You deserve to thrive, don’t let your body hold you back.
Make Easy Adjustments to your Routine
There is a chasm that lies between ‘finding’ and ‘making’ time. Your routine has to include simple exercises, it’s just that simple. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel, just challenge yourself to set aside a little time each day. You can start with some strengthening and toning moves with basic yoga exercises on your Wellness FitnessMat. Among many benefits, yoga improves your core muscles, improves energy, respiration, and circulatory health. Take as little as 10 minutes a day to become a healthier you. The best part is that this is an easy, achievable first step toward maintaining a healthy body. This is where you can start on the road to a sustainable health and wellness program where you can succeed.
Consider including simple aerobic exercises and even planks into your daily routine. Aerobic exercises burn fat, improves your mood and strengthens heart and lungs – these are all key to having that go-getter attitude all day, every day, and your time commitment is nominal.
Here’s a quick tip: it’s best to do these in the morning since your morning routine has a profound affect on how you function the rest of the day. If you start by doing healthy brain and body exercises, you’ll feel that motivation and productivity all day long. Exercise is like a nutritious breakfast – it gets the body off on the right foot (quite literally) every day.
Speedbump: My morning is too busy or I forget to include my daily exercise.
It’s difficult to start and follow through with a new habit. And it becomes personally disappointing when you fall out of practice because you missed a day. Luckily, Wellness FitnessMats are easy to move wherever you need them. Leave your FitnessMat where you can see it every morning and you’ll be more inclined to use it – leave it where you have to walk. Use this method as a gentle reminder to stop what you’re doing and make a small effort to improve each day. With a plank, for example, these can be done 1 minute at a time to be effective. Who doesn’t have 60 seconds to dedicate to your health, posture and personal improvement?
Your morning is too hectic, you say? That’s fine, you can wrap your day up at home with these same simple exercises. They can be fantastic de-stressors after a long day of work and the health benefit far surpasses a glass of red wine.
