Staying fit during the change of season can be difficult. When it gets cold and darker earlier outside, all we want to do is stay in and cuddle up on the couch. Getting into a routine can be difficult, and we may feel more unmotivated. If you feel like you're stuck in a rut, try out these tips to feel like your best self this fall!
1. Find a Routine
Telling yourself you will wake up early the next morning, without getting enough rest the night before is a recipe for failure. In order to accomplish all your goals during the week, it's important to plan out your week. Try to sit down on a Sunday and plan out all the things you want to get accomplished during the week, your meals, and the days you want to work out. Schedule in a day for self care, so that your skin can get some love during your busy week. Pencil in 20 minute facial cupping therapy or some time to use a crystal facial roller to improve skin circulation and increase lymphatic drainage. During this transition to a colder month, your skin will definitely need some extra love!
2. Prepare your Meals
After writing down your goals and tasks for the week, plan out what you want to eat. This can help you achieve your health and fitness goals, and also save you time! Write out what you want to eat, then try to meal prep as many things as you can at the beginning of the week. For example, try to make overnight oats so that your morning are less hectic. You can dry some oats with fruits and some goji berries for a boost in antioxidants, iron, and fibre.
Once you've meal prepped, make sure your food can last the whole week with some Abeego Beeswax Food Wrap. It's great if you are trying to be environmentally-friendly and reduce waste.
3. Get New Equipment
What could be more motivating than new gym clothes and equipment? Personally, a new outfit, or a new fitness tool will get me motivated to achieve my health goals. Whether you're into low or high intensity training, a resistance band or yoga mat is a great addition to your current gym setup. These products are especially great because if you don't feel like heading to the gym as it gets darker outside, you can use things like a fitness ball or yoga block in the comfort of your own home. Getting fit this fall has never been easier!
4. Manage Your Stress
Although planning out your week may lighten your load, your week can still be very eventful and stressful. Managing your stress is an extremely important role in staying healthy. If your mental health is not strong, then you will be incapable of doing any physical work. Keep your mind healthy this fall with some soothing essential oils and a beautiful ultrasonic diffuser to clear the air and your thoughts.
5. Rest and Recover
After a long and eventful week, it is so important to give your mind and body the rest and recovery it needs. Using essential oils, as previously mentioned, can relax your mind. If you've been working out the past week, give your muscles the recovery they need with a booster massage gun. This massage gun goes deep into the muscle tissue to repair sore muscles, and have you come back stronger and faster the next time you work out!
