Staying healthy and active during winter can be challenging. Don’t Stress! If you struggled this winter, spring is soon upon us, and it’s not too late to start small- get outside as the weather improves- even if it’s just for a stroll around the block. You can also start eating fresher foods like salads. Here are 5 ways you can kick-start your way into spring health mode:
1. Saturday morning Park Runs:
These are organised, free, weekly, 5km timed runs (or you can walk) which occur around the world. Anyone can do them and they are safe and easy to take part in.
2. Introducing fresh, raw salads into your diet:
Introduce fresh seasonal vegetables and fruit to your diet. This makes it an easy and convenient way to make sure that you get the vegetables and fruit your body needs. Here are some recipes you can try here
3. Keep hydrated:
It is extremely important to keep your body hydrated. During the colder days, it’s easy to forget to drink the required amount of water your body needs. No matter the weather, it’s important to keep up the water intake.
4. Daily activity:
Make sure to do some form of daily activity. This is not always easy, due to busy schedules. But try to make time, even if it’s for a walk around the block, or a workout at home.
5. Join the Yoga in the Park club:
Yoga is a good way to de-stress from a busy lifestyle. It is not only good for your body but for your mind as well. Take time out and enjoy a Sunday of yoga in the park.
It is important to look after yourself, especially with the changing seasons. Get your body into adaptation mode and you will see the benefits.
