- Focus on your nutrition
If you are just starting out with your health and fitness journey, take note of your current eating habits for a week. The following week, make a small change by adding one vegetable to one of your meals or cutting out one can of soda. Once this tiny change has stuck and become a habit, make another small change and track how that impacts on your health. Over time these small habit changes will all add up!
- Get moving!
Again, if you’re new to this, start out by going for a 20 minute walk every other day. As this becomes part of your schedule and habits, slowly increase it by 10 minutes per day, or by going for a 20 minute walk every day. There are so many benefits of walking, ranging from cognitive benefits to cardiovascular benefits. Once the habit has formed, the world is your oyster, you can continue building on this exercise habit by doing whatever you like – from playing tennis to training for a triathlon!
- Be consistent
Your health and fitness should be of primary importance, you only get once chance at this life. You can start out your fitness journey by making the smallest of changes, but to see the long term benefits of these changes, consistency is of utmost importance. A consistent nutrition and exercise routine will take some time to develop, however after a couple of weeks, it will be part of your everyday routine. Once you hit that level it is smooth sailing, almost "auto-pilot." The more you do it, the more confidence you will develop to stick with it. So go out there and give it your best, you owe it to yourself!
