Design A Healthy Lifestyle Plan That Works for You
When it comes to getting fit and healthy, there are many factors that can contribute towards your overall sense of wellbeing. Nutrition and rest, stress levels, work commitments, genetics and more are just some of the many things that can affect your personal results.
Becoming healthier and more active is a long-term lifestyle change and one that requires you to commit to it every day. Start today by addressing smaller areas in your daily life and try to change one habit a day.
Here are some tips to help you get started!
It’s All About Balance
The more active we are, the more important it might become to give our bodies an adequate amount of nutrients, so that we can keep being the best version of ourselves! This includes things like staying hydrated and eating well balanced meals on time. Why not keep a journal of your daily nutrient intake and make weekly notes to track how you feel?
Make Sleep a Priority
Getting a good night’s sleep is a vital part of leading a healthy and active lifestyle. It helps our bodies to rest, regenerate and recover from our daily activity. Try to sleep for 6-8 hours a night.
Lots of us snack our way through the day, but many snacks tend to be low in nutrients and high in calories! Our snacks need to be as balanced as our meals so snack smartly with healthier food swaps that will satisfy your cravings without the extra calories!

Take Stock of Your Week
It goes without saying that modern life can be stressful. Take stock of what happens in your week and where your time currently goes. It could help you to discover unnecessary tasks that could be dropped, creating precious moments of downtime for you to enjoy!
Reach For Your Goals
If you want to improve your current fitness level, you need to make time for it. Set aside 45-60 minutes a day for you to warm, up, exercise and cool down. For some inspiration on where to start, message us for some free fun home workouts. (Link to contact form)
A Lifestyle Tailored To You
We are all individuals with different body types, who respond differently to exercise and lifestyle changes. Plan your healthy active lifestyle around things that you enjoy. Choose a time of day that fits your schedule for exercise and find ways to make good personal choices in your daily routine.
The way we feel about ourselves can affect our energy, effort level and results. Boost your confidence by writing down your health goals, your feelings and at ten things that you are grateful for every day. Gratitude raises our vibration in every way and it will help you to stay positive about achieving your goals: even on days when you go off plan.
Don’t Compare and Despair
ItIt’s natural for us to compare ourselves to others. Being inspired by a friend’s progress can be very motivating and encourage us to reach our goals, but, there’s a fine line between feeling inspired and inadequate. Remember: you are a unique individual and your personal progress is just that: personal.
