It’s October… How’s your summer body holding up?
As the weather gets colder, the days feel shorter, and life gets busier, it can be difficult to prioritize your health. It’s important that you do, though, because the last thing you want is to lose all the progress you’ve made. Keep your momentum going! Here are some important tactics to maintain your health through the end of the year:
KEEP A POSITIVE MINDSET
Easier said than done, right? Maybe you’ve been consistent with an exercise and diet plan, or maybe you fell off after the first week. Negative thoughts about our body and capabilities happen to all of us.
Remind yourself that no one is perfect, and everyone struggles from time to time. The quickest way to lose your summer body is to make yourself believe it’s impossible to maintain it. Stay positive and expand on all the work you’ve already put in.
WATCH WHAT YOU EAT
We’re not asking you to avoid all the delicious food that defines the holiday season, but simply to pay attention to your nutrition. Cold weather can make you crave comfort food, but comfort food isn’t always the healthiest.
Portion control can be your best friend! It’s totally fine to indulge in that homemade macaroni and cheese or stuffing, just make sure your meals are staying balanced and you aren’t eating those things every day.
If you’re struggling to find time to work out in the midst of a busy year, you’re not alone! Remember, though, that exercising and stretching regularly can play a big role in your overall health.
Set aside time, whether it be every day or a few times a week, to spend exercising and stretching, or just moving your body. Exercise can help you maintain the progress you made on your body, and stretching can help you recover and stay healthy for your next activity.
