Beat that Mid-Year Fitness Slump!

Has your momentum to accomplish New Year’s Resolutions died down? Stuck in a little health and fitness rut? Has your ambition dwindled to make the rest of 2018 your healthiest year? Time to get back into a positive mindset and feel healthy from the inside out.

Here are some tips on how to amp up your health and fitness routine
                                         

1. Set realistic personal goals

Setting goals can be applied to countless aspects of your life, whether it be fitness, health or lifestyle. Not having a specific goal makes it a mere dream, and can make your dream body seem unreachable.   

Consider setting reachable, concrete goals like reducing your body fat percentage by a certain amount, aiming to visit the gym at least two times a week or simply reducing the number of alcoholic drinks you consume weekly. Get creative and remember - be realistic in the goals you’ve set for yourself! Every fitness journey starts with little steps in the right direction.

2. Reevaluate your lifestyle choices

Little changes can make huge differences. Are you reaching for the chocolate bar rather than a healthy snack? Are your drinking enough water, protecting your skin from dryness and the sun, and eating enough veggies and fruits? Here’re some simple and pain-free ways to get healthier:

Tip 1: Give in to your chocolate craving


Need that cocoa fix? Indulge (just a little!) in guilt-free chocolate by BSKT. BSKT Chocolate Bars are vegan and made with all-natural ingredients. Spoil yourself without the empty calories from sugar and feeling you have committed a huge sin!

BSKT Chocolate Bars are available in Mint and Maca Espresso and retail at $5.35.


Tip 2: Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! 

Hydrate your body with PURE Sports Nutrition Electrolyte Hydration. It is specially formulated for sports and exercise and contains no added preservatives, colours or anti-clumping agents. PURE Electrolyte Hydration ensures adequate fluid intake during exercise and prevents dehydration. It also helps with the rapid replacement of energy.

Tip 3: Protect your skin 

Our skin is subjected to environmental damage on a daily basis, and needs daily protection and hydration to retain its healthy, glowy state. Made with Palmer’s pure and natural Cocoa Butter, Palmer’s Cocoa Butter SPF 15 Lotion provides superior moisturizing properties of the original lotion with the added benefit of SPF 15 to shield skin from our intense sun rays.
