5 Tips to Get More Steps Every Day
Creating balance with your workouts is just as important as balancing your healthy eating habits. You do NOT need to spend 2 hours in the gym each day and/or workout twice a day. You must realize that there are things outside of the gym that are much more important. Long sessions and "no days off" will only lead to over-training and the high probability of injuring yourself. The "no excuse" attitude is great but know when to take a break!
Tips to Help YOU Find Balance:
- Get away from the mindset that you have to count calories and/or macros all the time - live a little! Try the 80/20 rule.
- Know that plateaus and speed bumps are going to happen. Just keep pushing and you will get through them.
- Find a workout that YOU like and incorporate different styles of training. Become well rounded by practicing yoga, weight training, cardio training, etc. Think outside of the box and mix up your routine. Not a runner? Go for a run today! Not into the gym? Ditch the excuses and make a gym date. Don't be afraid to use the great outdoors as your playground either - go for a hike or bike ride!
- Find something outside of health and fitness that you enjoy. Maybe it's reading, volunteering, traveling, etc. Try to focus some energy on other areas of your life that bring you happiness.
