Do you ever feel like you just don’t have enough time to reach your health and fitness goals?
Your to-do list is a MILE long and you’re barely getting the non-negotiables done. How in the world would you have time to do the things you actually WANT to do?
We’ve got you.
Here are some of our favorite tips to slay the day and get one step closer to where you want to be:
- Ditch the all-or-nothing attitude. You CAN be healthy and still occasionally have some ice cream (or if you’re like me, you’ll fit it in every day). Working out for even just 30-45 minutes it’s better than skipping your workout entirely! (Ps. If you’re short on time, you are always welcome to do 3 sets instead of 4 or skip the burnout at the end of the workout). If ALL else fails, going on a quick jog around the block or taking your dog for a walk is better than nothing!
- Try to view your health as a radical act of kindness toward yourself. All your choices will become easier, and you will eliminate a lot of stress.
- Practice mindfulness. Free-writing/journaling, meditation, or having a gratitude practice all help you to tune in. Cut out your time sucks. Are you scrolling on IG for a full hour before bed? I’m all for decompressing but if it’s leaving you feeling yucky or like you’re wasting your time, cut that stuff out.
- Do what feels good. If you don’t like running, don’t run. If you love hiking — get outside more! Fitness doesn’t fit in a box, so don’t feel like you have to conform to a specific type of training to be healthy. Although, I’ll always make the argument for some resistance training because it’s good for your bones and can be wildly empowering.
- Practice being resilient. Consistency is often said to be #1 when it comes to seeing results. I would argue resiliency is a close second. If you skip a workout, get back on it. Missteps are inevitable — You gotta get back up when you fall in order to make any progress.
Small shifts can be really powerful because it’s a chain reaction — your energy improves, your mindset becomes more positive, you are more productive and efficient — your life flourishes.
