We all know how challenging it can be to stay motivated this time of year. Christmas and New Year's have been celebrated so we're feeling motivated for 2022. However the sun is still shining (mostly!) and for some of us, there's lots of activities with the kids and some social events still in the diary!
With all this in mind, we have some tips and tricks to ensure you stay on track with your 2022 resolutions - not just this month but throughout the year!
- Keep Hydrated
Make sure you are upping your water intake especially with the weather getting warmer! Drinking 2-3L per day is recommended - even more so when alcohol is involved. An easy way to get in 1L is by having it first thing in the morning, this will start off your day on the right foot.
- Get plenty of sleep
Make sure you’re getting your full 8 hours a night as it’s essential in feeling and looking your best.
- Eat a nutritious breakfast
It’s important to eat a fulfilling and nutritious breakfast as this will reduce the urge to gorge on ‘unhealthy’ foods due to hunger. A filling, high protein breakfast will sustain you throughout the day.
We suggest keeping our IsoWhey shake sachets handy as they’re a great addition to your daily breakfast. They taste amazing and contain a great dose of protein.
- Get it done early
Get your workout done early in the morning, whether this is a morning walk, workout class at the gym or a run with friends. This will leave no room to talk yourself out of the workout throughout the day, you’ll feel better for it!
- Keeping up your training routine
The hardest thing about getting into a routine is starting, so stay consistent and don’t compromise as you don’t want to start from the beginning again.
Remember this is such a small part of your day that makes such a big impact on your mood and wellbeing, as exercise releases endorphins which brighten our mood and create a feel-good feeling!
These tips will ensure you are staying somewhat on track, by creating balance you’re not restricting yourself completely and more importantly – also not rewinding all the hard work you put in last year!
