I know this time of the year can get really busy, making it even harder to find time for movement...
If you're living in the Northern Hemisphere, it's also a time when it's cold and dark making you less likely to want to go outside, or move!
But that´s not an excuse to stop moving!
Exercise boosts our endorphins which is exactly what we need when it's cold & dark.
One of the biggest misconceptions about exercise is that you need to do it in a gym and for at least an hour for it to be worth it.
But that's simply not true!
I always tell my clients: “consistency is key and quality of movement beats quantity.”
You're better off fitting in 20-30 minutes of movement every day, than trying to make it to the gym for an hour a few times per week.
It's also easier to be consistent with something you commit to every day because it becomes a non negotiable.
It's like brushing your teeth. You would never negotiate with yourself about whether you should or shouldn't do it, would you?
You just do it every day because it's part of your daily routine and you know it's important for your health.
Exercise should be no different.
You don't always have to make it hard & strenuous. In fact, I recommend that you dedicate at least a couple of sessions a week to stretching, mobility and tuning in with your breath.
This is truly enjoyable and SOOOO beneficial for your health! Especially if you're trying to lose weight!
Reducing stress on the body is paramount for weight loss so prioritising workouts that are low impact and build long, lean muscles is key!
My number one tip to build consistency with exercise is to set your alarm clock 30 minutes earlier for 21 days.
This is how long it takes to build a new habit.
Roll out your mat and do a workout that focuses on strengthening your core, opening up the areas that are tight and creating space & mobility in the areas where you feel stuck.
Doing this will transform your whole day and have a positive impact on all your relationships, including the one you have with food!
When you prioritise your wellbeing from the get go in the morning, you carry that intention with you for the rest of your day!
Having structure and a set plan with workouts you can squeeze in from home within a short amount of time is key if you want to get results.
Beat The Bloat is a 21 day challenge starting on January 3rd that provides you with a new 30 minute workout every morning to start your day.
