September is a great time to start your health and fitness journey! Here are some tips to help you get started:
Make a plan and set aside time. For many people, a solid plan is required to ensure a routine can be achieved. Plan your workouts and meal preparation for days when you know you have, or can make, the time to commit yourself.
Make sure you have enough energy. Do you feel your energy beginning to wane? Have you set aside time an hour from now to exercise but are already dreading it? Set yourself up for success by ensuring you bring up your energy with a pre-workout snack that gives you the energy you need to get through your workout.
Keep your thoughts positive. Lingering on negative thoughts like “I don’t feel like it anymore” will make it that much easier for you to quit and ultimately fail. Focus on positive thoughts like how great you’ll feel when you’ve finished a great workout.
Consult a professional. When looking for guidance, make sure to speak with someone with experience and a degree in a health and fitness field. Be cautious following advice from self-proclaimed professionals (those without proper training and little to no experience) as you risk receiving flawed information which could be detrimental to your health.
