Living a Healthy Lifestyle
Living a healthy lifestyle is often labelled as challenging and inconvenient, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Once you get into a routine, learn the ropes and adopt healthy habits it becomes second nature. We’ve created a couple of tips, tricks and healthy living hacks to help you out; 1. Freeze Bananas Your smoothies will never be the same again once you start adding frozen bananas. It turns them into a thick ice cream consistency! Just peel, chop into pieces and freeze then add into your morning shake. 2. Get A Measurable Water Bottle Want to stay hydrated? Get a water bottle which is 500ml, 750ml or even 1 litre. Then you can track throughout the day how much water you have been drinking. 3. Socialise While Training If you’re busy it can be tough to find time to see your friends. Try and kill two birds with one stone & meet your friends at the gym or go to a new class together. Then grab a coffee afterwards, to get in a good catch up too. 4. Variety Is Key Us humans are creatures of habit, we like to eat the same foods over and over again. Sadly this can lead to nutrient deficiencies so we need to mix up what we eat. When eating out try and pick something you wouldn’t cook at home, to access a wider range of vitamins and minerals. Pick up different veggies when they are in season and challenge yourself to add them to your evening meal. This supports local farmers while letting me get new nutrients. 5. Get Nippy If you have a morning shower, try adding on a 15-second cold water blast at the end. It is a great way to get yourself out your comfort zone and has many benefits including increased energy, improved circulation, boosted immunity and even softer hair! 6. Remember Your Supplements Especially if you’re eating a plant-based diet. Do this by putting the supplements in clear view so that yuo don’t forget to take them. 7. Sneaky Greens If you struggle to get in your portions of leafy greens each day, a great way to sneak them into your diet is through smoothies. Try adding a handful of spinach or kale to smoothies to give them a nutrient kick. We promise you can’t taste them! 8. You Eat What You See Ensure that you have healthy snacks that are easily accessible. We are all guilty of being super hungry and just eating the first thing we pick up. 9. Make A Motivation List. It can be easy for motivation to waiver on a day to day basis. To combat this trying adding a note on your phone for when you are making excuses to not to go to the gym. Include a list of all the reasons you love training and reasons you want to train. 10. Eat Dessert With A Teaspoon. Everyone loves dessert right? Use a teaspoon to allow yourself to slow down and actually enjoy the dessert. When you make it last longer it’s actually supporting your digestion too!
