Set some goals: We know it’s hard not to be able to meet up with your friends, go out for a few drinks or a enjoy a meal like normal but if you are willing to shift your mindset this could be a blessing in disguise for you. Grab a pen and notebook and write down the 5 things you want to achieve most, the date you want to achieve them by and how you will feel when you have successfully achieved them.
Build new habits: you can start by setting new routines, ditch the hangover on Sunday mornings, get out for a morning walk in the park, cut time on social media, make a morning ritual to set your day up well! Have a look at your current routine and think of areas you want to improve. Keep changes small and maintainable at first then build on them.
Change your training routine: whether you are going to an actual gym or just exercising in the house make sure you move at least a little bit every day. Studies shows the huge benefits of physical activity when it comes to stress release. When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body not to mention you will be working towards a new and improved body that you can feel proud of in the coming months.
Cook your own food: Now you have more time to cook your favourite dishes at home , you can focus on your nutrition. make sure you consume enough protein, especially if you are doing any kind of physical activity and focus on foods that are nutrient dense and calorie low......(ps.: have you tried to make our delicious protein donut yet?
