Gyms are often centered around aesthetics and whilst losing weight or getting stronger does wonders for our confidence, creating that happier healthier you goes well beyond the work you put in the gym and the food you put on your plate. Your whole lifestyle can make a huge difference to your wellbeing and help to create a better outlook on life.
Here is just a few things we like to try and concentrate on to help boost our clients results
Increase activity – Get your body moving, just for the fun of moving. I’m not talking a grueling 30 minute HiiT session but just getting on your feet and being more active. Our bodies are designed to move us from place to place so make the most of it! Nice weather outside…Then go for a walk! Car needs cleaning… Do it by hand. If you’re favorite song comes on the radio, have a good old jive around the kitchen. Anything to get yourself moving more… Not only will this boost your weight loss results but being more active has been proven to boost your mindset
Gratitude – Celebrate the things that you have in your life that you love and want to say thank you for. Spend 5 or 10 minutes in the morning (when you first wake up) and in the evening (before you sleep) to think about all the things you’re grateful in life for. This can create a huge mindset shift helping us to feel more positive and the more positive our outlook is, the more good things happen… The more good things that happen, the more we have to be grateful for! Now that’s a good cycle to be in
No such thing as failure – We have a strong belief that there is no such thing as failure, only lessons and how you respond to them. Not everything that happens in your fitness journey is going to be positive. There will be times when you slip off the wagon or do something you knew you shouldn’t really do. If you let them beat you up then you’re only going to feel worse. However, if you take a minute to stop and work out why you slipped and how you can stop it from happening again, then you’ve just taken a negative and made it into a positive
These are just 3 simple things but there are many, many more ways you can boost your lifestyle and mindset that will help you on your way to a happier, healthier you.
