We are so into presents, dinners and Christmas joy, we just might forget about ourselves here, a little tip would be to get into your new routine before the year ends, that way, your habit is already formed for the start of next year… Super healthy tips where constant becomes your best friend !!
Start by moving your body, how many of you have spent the last year saying how you were going to sign in at the gym, and……. you just have not got there ! shame on you……. we really do believe we are going to go and participate, it is the biggest promise many of us break…Choose which form of exercise you want to do, which one suits you best, yoga Pilates if you are looking to take down your stress levels, go for zumba or Sh’ban if you are looking for fun…spinning or crossfit if you are looking to improve those muscles and gain physical resistance….and if the gym is not your thing get into swimming or enjoyable cycling or even dancing, these all give you a great work out and you are moving, which is what counts, a nice walk is also perfect.
Start your day as a queen, after a perfect sleep your sugar levels are very low, your brain feeds of glucose and this feeds the muscles, which is why it is so important to have breakfast, Leave the laziness to one side and make that effort your mind and body need that morning dose of energy .
As mentioned before, dancing is a great way to move, but it also supplies us with contact, we all need human contact in a relationship or a daily friendship, when we have this interaction with others, it makes us happy, we are all happy when we are cared for and given attention, it shows in how we walk, talk listen we love to be happy it is one great way to be healthy.
Dedicate time to ourselves, time to relax to concentrate on mindfulness, yoga meditate etc., this will help you to avoid anxiety in your day-to-day problems, if you don’t enjoy this kind of activity, dedicate time to yourself with a relaxing bath, an hour of your favourite hobby, just never forget that you are important.
Sweet dreams are very important and should not be forgotten, you know how you feel if you are short on sleep, the next day your stress levels will soar, have you ever related tiredness with your stress chart !a few good tips for a good night sleep is to never go to sleep immediately after eating, do not have distractions near your bed side that have any form of a blue light, try to keep noise out and have a good temperature, not to hot and not to cold.
