Spending time away from the usual Daily routine.
Having time away from your routine can be the difference in helping stay sane. It’s easy to get caught up in rushing around with work and careers without spending time away and thinking about what really matters to you. For example once a month I love to get away to explore and send some time behind the camera.
People talk themselves into failure.
Often people and clients will be so tough on themselves and not give themselves credit for making progress. The more time you spend being hard on yourself is wasted time you can spend on trying to work towards a goal. Kicking yourself all week about missing a session or eating too much on the weekend is often enough to write off a few weeks and then that’s when weight gain will spiral out of control.
Having a balance that works for you only.
Factors to consider when looking for a healthy lifestyle balance.
- Everyone enjoys different things so don’t think one way is the best way.
- Everyone has different lifestyles with career, kids and time commitments.
- It’s not one size fits all.
- Better balance gives a better chance to be consistent for longer.
Going too crazy with exercise and food can see short-term benefits but it all counts for nothing if you can’t sustain it for more than 3-4 weeks. You need to work hard on trying to find a balance that you enjoy and keep up.
