Looking To Make A Change? Tips To Stay Healthy In 2021
Now that we’re a few days into 2021, and the Christmas goodies such as chocolate and wine have been demolished, you may be thinking about giving your New Year’s resolution of becoming fitter and healthier a go. Here are some tips to do exactly that!
Find the motivation
Step one of any lifestyle change is finding real motivation to begin your journey towards your goals. You may want that little black dress to fit nicely, but do you want it enough right now to kickstart you into your journey? If the answer is no, try taping an old picture of you with your desired body weight next to a photo of yourself now around your home in places such as your wardrobe, the bathroom mirror, and on the fridge. This is a great way to help motivate yourself to take necessary steps towards your lifestyle change.
Supplements are perfect for helping maintain your level of health, and can even help repair your body fast if you’ve been injured in an accident. Consider adding supplements to your food to pack in more nutrition in your diet. Alternatively, you could start each day by taking a multivitamin to help boost your body’s natural abilities and even accelerate your weight loss.
Keep a food diary
It’s easy to think that you don’t eat a bad diet, but have you ever noted down everything you eat in a day? Spend a few weeks writing everything down that you’ve eaten, and how you were feeling at the time. You may begin to notice patterns such as emotional eating, and you may even find yourself surprised at how many calories you actually consume in a day. Having this information in front of you will also allow you to create a healthy, balanced meal plan that’s going to help you lose weight without feeling deprived of food. If you’re not sure how many calories you need to eat (or not eat) check your BMI online to find out how many calories you need to eat to lose weight at a healthy pace.
Up your water intake
Water is so detrimental to the human body, yet many of us fail to drink the recommended amount each day. Upping your water intake to 2 liters a day (more if you’re exercising) will help boost your weight loss, improve your moods, and help clear any problematic skin you may be experiencing. Water also helps flush any toxins out of the body, allowing your body to absorb the nutritious diet you’re now eating.
Try a new exercise
Finally, exercise can seem like a chore if you really don’t enjoy it, and that’s completely understandable! Everyone is different, and some people simply aren’t made for running or jogging, and will benefit from other exercises such as swimming or group activities. Experiment with different exercises to find one that you look forward to rather than dread, and avoid putting it off altogether which would take you back to square one.
