No doubt in the media today there will be lots of statements with the message ‘New Year New You!’ Pressure to improve, lose weight, be fitter, be better! You’ll start to think about the food you should give up, the workouts you should be doing to achieve this ‘New You’.
For many people your body will already be taking abuse on a daily basis; rushing to be in two places at once, grabbing food in between work and family or other commitments. Do your really need more pressure to reinvent yourself?
Put all thoughts of what you could be and what you should be out of your mind this morning and instead think about what you can do to cherish the body you live in. If you look after your body it will repay you in so many ways.
Eat to nourish your body, you’ll have more energy, your skin will glow your hair will shine. Move more in a way that makes you happy, you’ll release endorphins ‘happy hormones’, your body will become leaner, stronger. Do things that give you pleasure, you’ll become calmer, more content, more positive. Yes, make some tweaks but make them in a positive way, because you love and value yourself.
In 2017 change your mindset from ‘improving’ your body to ‘loving’ your body. I guarantee that if you love your body it will love you back.
At Inspire Me Fit we like to encourage you to make a positive start to your New Year health and fitness by taking part in our January Fitness Challenge. Each week we will set you 3 challenges, one physical, one nutritional and one wellbeing. The challenges will include some workouts, a bit of healthy meal preparation and some activities to promote mental wellbeing. If you complete the challenge you will be well on your way to showing your body some love and a positive start to a healthy 2017.
Alongside your Fitness Challenge it would be even more beneficial to take part in Dry January and avoid alcohol for a month.
