It’s been a month since we made our new year’s resolutions and promised to commit to a goal for the year. Statistically, many people will commit to exercising more and eating better, however the average person will throw in the towel during the first week of February. Here are some health hacks to keep you on track in 2017…
- Remember to eat breakfast. It is called the most important meal of the day for a reason, because we are quite literally breaking the ‘fast’ we undertook during the night. It gives us the fuel we need to get started and prepares us for the day. Without breakfast, we are more inclined to snack on unhealthy treats mid-morning.
- Water, water, water! If you find yourself feeling peckish a lot, consider whether you are just dehydrated. Sometimes a need for fluids can disguise itself rather successfully as hunger. We should drink around 2 litres of water a day, minimum.
- Try preparing your meals. Just like not eating breakfast can make us crave unhealthy snacks, being unprepared means that we are more likely to run into the nearest supermarket or order takeaway instead of cooking. If we are prepared, we have no excuses.
- Focus on your mindset! Staying healthy is 20% diet and exercise and 80% mindset. If we are not focused on what our fitness goals are or if we do not want our goals enough, we are more inclined to throw in the towel. Tell yourself you can do it, and you will do it. Tell yourself you can’t do it, and you will convince yourself just that.
