How are you?
Lockdown 2.0 is here❗️❗️
Yesterday, we delivered our last in person sessions until December and we have pivoted our whole timetable back online again!
One of the mantra’s that I’ve adopted throughout the pandemic is “Control The Controllable”.
In fact, we even had a video about this back in March:
So today I want to share with you, 5 lockdown rules that have served us well and I’m sure they will help you both with your mental and physical health over the next 4 weeks:
1. Maintain Your Routine
This is important. Our body and mind will always perform better with a routine and it leaves decision fatigue no chance.
This was the main reason why we decided to go online when lockdown first began, we are creatures of habit and routine is a great way to stay healthy.
Many people who exercises regularly will tell you that they are more energetic, less easily irritated and are more peaceful.
Also, exercise has been proven to reduce depression – sometimes even as effectively as medication.
Just chalk these up as yet more amazing benefits to exercising.
3. Set small goals
Small wins = BIG Results.
What would you like to achieve over the next 6-8 weeks? Imagine going into the Christmas season having made some serious progress?
If you have a weight loss goal, break it down.
For example, if your big goal is to lose 8kgs, perhaps you can focus on losing 3kgs over the next 4-5 weeks.
Our mood, attentiveness, hunger, physical and mental health are all effected by our sleep.
I know that I am most at risk of eating too many custard creams when I’ve had a short amount of sleep.
Also, studies continue to show that 7 hours of sleep is the amount necessary in order to create the optimal hormone balance for fat loss.
This season is certainly a challenging one for us all mentally.
However, a positive mindset can be all the difference and regularly remembering all that we have to be grateful for can really help us remain upbeat.
Gratitude journals are amazing and whilst you may not want buy a specific one, writing down what you are grateful for on a daily basis is a sure way to help you through lockdown.
I hope this helps.
