We know that we should be taking in two litres of water throughout the day. The need for hydration is increased when you wake as you have not hydrated since the previous night.
Meditate or create a morning ritual
We know from studying and reading about successful people that they all have created a morning ritual to follow. This starts them off in a good space for the day ahead. Find what works for you.
Eating a healthy breakfast will keep your blood-sugars in balance. It will also give you more energy for the day ahead.
It is so common that soon after a new exercise regime is created, that within one month it’s gone out the window and we are left feeling guilty and back at square one. How can we create a lasting habit of exercise? Here are a few guidelines.
Make it manageable
Many people say that they are all or nothing when it comes to habits. Well, that’s okay but when it comes to exercise, your cardiovascular system and your muscles are not built as all or nothing elements. If either of these are under pressure, they will react by making you very tired or your muscles will react by getting very tight and sore.
Get a plan or engage a trainer that will give you the correct amount of exercise and will challenge you just enough to keep you interested. Gradually developing your cardiovascular capability and your muscle activity and strength will ensure that you will not burn out and will keep up the new healthy exercise habits
Do what you enjoy and balance the activities to make them work together
I often hear the phrases, “I don’t like the gym, I find it intimidating”, or, “I can’t stand running”. In order for you to maintain your new exercise regime, you need to be doing something you enjoy, so getting fit is a side-effect of you having fun.
So, whether it’s dancing, playing frisbee, orienteering or hillwalking, do something that gets your heart rate up and enjoy it.
