SEPTEMBER FITNESS RESOLUTIONS

SEPTEMBER FITNESS RESOLUTIONS

Resolutions to be healthier are traditionally made at New Year, after the excesses of the festive season. That shiny new calendar or diary seems to make us all want to change ourselves.

Short daylight hours, cold damp weather and the flat feeling after celebrations all conspire to make resolutions fail. Why not make resolutions in early September instead? It’s a long time to the next bank holiday and the nights are drawing in, but there’s still warmth, flowers and plenty going on. So there is much to ‘make the most of’.

Here are 3 healthy September resolutions:

1. I WILL MAKE THE MOST OF THE DAYLIGHT

Sunset at 10pm is something only for mid-June, but we still have light evenings until the clocks go back at the end of October. So even if you are office-bound all day, there’s still time to get out after work and top up your vitamin D levels.

If you enjoy your running, there’s no need to hang up the trainers. There are nearly 800 running events scheduled in the UK for September, everything from fun runs to serious multi-terrain stuff.

2. I WILL ENJOY EARLY AUTUMN FOOD DELIGHTS

Depending on where you are, there may still be some summer berries ripe for the picking. Apples, pears, runner beans and courgettes are just a few of the fruit and veg that are at their best in early autumn. That means good prices in the shops and good taste on the plate.

3. I WILL TRY SOMETHING NEW

The concept of ‘terms’ is not just for schoolchildren. Many adult activities also restart in early September, and that is the time when they welcome beginners. Ask at your local leisure centre or gym to see what is going on. It could be a new dance class, the start of a course or training for a running or triathlon event.

It is a new school year, so let’s make it a new fitness year too.
