So it’s February already and there may still be snow lingering but at least the mornings and evenings are getting lighter and the snowdrops are starting to appear.
We at Herts Pilates HQ have survived dry January, detox January (no sugar, dairy or caffeine) and feel fighting fit to face February (with the odd glass of wine in front of the fire).
It is amazing though how a few changes including drinking more water everyday, increasing daily exercise, cutting out the snacks and re-tweaking your mindset can have such a positive effect on your well-being. Now I know lots of people join the gym, have new resolutions, start dry January but as an individual effort they may not last long or have a huge impact. Putting them together eg more daily exercise, steps, no snacking, cut back on coffee, 5 minutes a day meditation (look at apps HeadSpace and Calm) can have a massive positive effect. It really doesn’t matter if you have an off day or can’t stick to something rigidly- small changes offer big rewards.
So, go on give it a try and remember with fitness and well-being it is not just the outcome that we focus on but the journey along the way.
