Set some realistic goals for yourself
First of all, it is important that you set some realistic goals. Because without goals, your motivation can quickly slip through the cracks. So think carefully about what you want to have achieved by the summer: Do you want to build more muscle? Or would you rather lose some weight?
After that, it is important to set a clear date by which you want to have achieved these goals – here, too, the key is to stay realistic.
The fact is: Movement is good for everyone. It gets the circulation going, lifts the mood and makes you fit. However, make sure that you don’t put your body through too much and increase your training slowly. It is also important to choose a sport that you enjoy, because this will keep you motivated. It’s also best to create a great playlist for your workout, as this will get you in an even better mood.
Drink plenty of water
Especially on warm days it is important to drink enough, because you will excrete a lot of fluid while sweating. Try to get used to always having a bottle of water with you.
Drinking enough water is essential for proper functioning of the cardiovascular system.
In general, you should sleep 6 to 10 hours every night
Get enough sleep and rest
Especially in today’s stressful times, a good night’s sleep is often underestimated. A good night’s rest is not only important for your mind, but also for your body. A permanent lack of sleep decreases your performance and hinders your motivation.
The frequency of your training is also important. You can train as hard and as often as you want, but it won’t do you any favors, as your body needs a break from it from time to time. Therefore, remember this: You should not train with sore muscles, because in the meantime your muscles are regenerating. It is recommended, especially in the beginning, to train a maximum of 2 to 3 days per week.
A balanced nutrition
The most essential thing for mind and body is a good and balanced nutrition. Make sure to eat more vegetables and fruits and reduce the consumption of bad fats and sugars. It is important that you adapt your balanced nutrition to yourself and pay attention to your preferences and intolerances. It’s best to find someone who wants to join you right away, because then it will be easier for you to remain steadfast.
Food like cakes, cookies or potato chips should not be stored at home at all, then the temptation is not so great. Of course, you can have a little snack now and then, but it shouldn’t be every day.
