Really important stuff happens when we sleep. This is when our bodies “download” the benefits of any exercise, repair tissue damage and fend off illness.
Making time to eat right is something I've always done and even though it feels like a hassle sometimes to make my own hummus or soups I am healthier and happier for it. It's getting the balance right.
I do the heel raises under my desk throughout the day already and I also use an exercise ball to sit on so I can also do a few moves on there. It all adds up and means I don't feel too stiff if I do dash off for lunchtime workout. .
We always pay for half board when abroad. This means we're not committed to the hotel during the day and can try the local cuisine. Plus it works out cheaper of course.
I do get annoyed when the only thing people say to my daughter is 'you look pretty'. That's giving the wrong messages from early on, especially when you hear the same people compliment a boy on being tough or clever. This is not how it will be in my house.
I'm now old enough to be past body image issues - but it isn't easy at all when you are late teens/twenties and bombarded with all these images of perfection. Here's to gyms that really do welcome everyone, whatever their shape.
Does Hussle offer student discounts? Just an idea that might encourage poor students to stop drinking and get fit....
Perhaps I'm sceptical but I have always seen retreats as a commercial venture which is great while you're there, but life just gets back to normal when you're home. People should get into good habits everyday rather than doing random retreats in my opinion.
I didn't attend a gym until my 30s because I was overweight in my 20s and felt intimidated by everyone else's 'perfect' bodies. I wish I hadn't cared and just got on with it. And I am very glad attitudes are changing now and people judge less. Still lots of work to do though.
I don't do a warm up except for a few basic leg and arm stretches. But it's never seemed to impact the workout, and it definitely saves time when I do a lunchtime workout.
I only wish I had the money to travel on lots of holidays and worry about things like suitcases, our family stick to shoving clothes into bags then heading off with a tent!
I am definitely guilty of just checking my email and I'm still there 20 minutes later due to getting sidetracked by non-essential stuff. I have found it helps a lot to resist checking more than once a morning, once in afternoon and once in evening.
I think leggings and a dress are the absolute comfiest thing to wear everyday regardless of whether you're travelling or not! Plus, you can gran 5 minutes of ad hoc fitness and not have to get changed!
Exercising in small chunks has saved my fitness. I am not going to the gym today as it's my turn to collect the kids but have just done 5 minute dumbbell workout, and later will do 100 squats.
Great tips - especially the one about clothes with deep pockets. Though I like to go all-inclusive cooking and have a break from catering for a rest!
not sure 'five blocks' works in Mediterranean seaside villages, but 'no sea view' is a good one for picking a good restaurant. That and one full of the locals!
i completely agree about the no posters of idealised people. This has been a big part of people's mental heath problems/body confidence issues for years and it should stop now.
I must admit i don' always shower if I've only done some weights. I think its only essential if you're hot and sweaty after cardio.
yes yes yes to what we say and media messages. How often does news coverage of a female death refer only to her as 'beautiful'? Did the poor woman achieve nothing? Let's value each other for more than our looks, cradle to grave.
Organising the mornings are definitely my way of feeling in control and giving myself time. I even have time to do some 5 minutes of yoga stretches!
good ideas but please if you work anywhere like my badly ventilated office, take two minutes for a post workout shower, that's all it needs. Deodorant is not a canned shower and will only add to the evils!
joining the chorus - just because you are young and CAN survive on rubbish food, little sleep and no exercise doesn't mean you should. Grab all the chances and be fit enough to take them. I'll get off my soap box now...
