If you are a high school, college or university leaver, transferring to a new job or are experiencing the freedom of summer, you are prone to leading an unhealthy life. This is because you most likely are experiencing new timetable changes and are rebalancing the work-home balance. By doing these easy things you can ensure your diet stays clean and you are giving your body the nutrition it needs.
1) Drink a glass of water after brushing your teeth in the morning and before bed
By drinking a glass of water in the morning and night you are ensuring that you do not get dehydrated while and after you sleep. Hydration throughout the night will get rid of your dry mouth, headaches and grogginess that you may experience in the morning.
2) Smoothie city
Smoothies are a fun way to experiment with fruits and vegetables all while getting the nutrition that your body craves. If you are planning on incorporating a smoothie into breakfast but are worried you will have no time in the morning, prepare it the day before and stick it in the fridge. Then in the morning, just get to blending, I find the best blender for smoothies is the NutriBullet.
Here is one of my favourite and easy recipes that will get you through the morning:
(usually I put a handful of each fruit/vegetable and that makes enough for around 2-3 large glasses)
-Baby Spinach( atleast a handful)
-Bio Yoghurt/ Plain Yoghurt( 3-4 large spoons)
- Semi Skimmed Milk (Half a large glass) (add according to the consistency you prefer)
The berries are rich in antioxidants which help to cleanse the body whilst Baby spinach is rich in vitamins such as Vitamin A, B2, C and other beneficial substances such as Magnesium, Calcium and Iron.
3) Create a fitness schedule
Finding the time to hit the gym, whether it's at home or at a facility, can be difficult or even stressful at times. This is why it is always handy to keep a weekly schedule on your phone or even in paper form! This will allow you to visualise how busy your week will be and you can add in gym sessions accordingly. I recommend completing an hour of fitness a day however this may not be do-able. Instead try 3-4 hours spread across a week, with your healthy smoothies, you should feel happier and healthier.
4) Take multivitamins and vitamin supplements
By providing your body with the nutrition it needs your tiredness and unmotivated aura will disappear, this is because you will not feel so trapped in your body. Your vitamins can range from the standard multivitamin to also taking, hair, nail, and skin vitamins too. I recently added Yumi gummies to my list of multivitamins to take daily in order to help my hair grow fast and healthily.
5) Believe the work you're doing is making an improvement
Without believing in yourself and accepting that you are doing what you can to improve your health, you won't get very far. A positive mindset will always trigger positive results. Walk into every workout with your end result in mind, this will make your workout easier and overall make you happier. When you eat a chocolate bar on a chat day you do not need to feel guilty, because you know you are doing the most that you can. Don't give up, the process is slow, but you must keep the belief in yourself.
