Get back into shape, fast!
1. Get back your figure!
Undoubtedly you’ve been eating fattening foods that are rich in calories to face the rigor of winter, knowing that you could hide any ill-proportioned weight gain underneath your clothes! With these lovely days coming up, you’d like to bring out your spring clothing and that’s where you question how to camouflage whatever it is! So, go ahead and go to the flea market this weekend since the stalls will be overflowing with fruits and vegetables of the season, and adopt a healthy and balanced diet to gain back your figure!
2. Get moving with a sport!
There have been months when the couch became your best friend, but now it’s time to separate you two! Wake up your muscles gently, put on your tennis shoes, and go do a sport: jogging, swimming, or tennis, it doesn’t matter! Take it back up slowly and at your own rhythm. If you’re older than 45 and have any concerns, contact your physician before taking a physical activity back up.
3. Get enough sleep!
Do you desire to go out since the days are getting longer, but your body needs sleep? Even better, restorative sleep? Sleeping is naturally anti-stress and anti-fatigue, so it’s important that you don’t deprive yourself of it. For quality sleep, going to bed and waking up at the same time each day is very important. If you have trouble sleeping, you can always do some relaxation methods before you go to bed.
Our body gets clogged up by these long months of excessiveness and inactivity. You must clean out your body, which has become saturated with toxins, and eliminate any waste that could cause you to be moving slower. Consider purifying herbal teas to clean out the liver, kidneys, and intestines.
5. Take in a big gulp of fresh air!
Go on an excursion in the mountains or the countryside and find a tree to lay under. Take in a lung-full of air! There’s nothing better than a walk outdoors, surrounded by nature, to re-energize you physically and intellectually!
6. Go ahead and take some vitamins!
With a diet that’s rich and varied, you’ll benefit from vitamins of all kinds. If you lack a healthy diet, take a multi-vitamin, respecting the advised dose and avoid combining too any supplements together. You don’t want to risk an overdose.
7. Take care of your skin!
Pamper your skin after winter! Use a lighter cream and make sure that it contains UV protection. Choose your skin cream according to your age and skin type. Consider buying a scrub to get rid of all of the dead skin that’s accumulated during the winter. Do a facial mask once a week to have skin as smooth as a peach!
8. Change up your hairstyle!
With the arrival of spring, this is the ideal moment to change up your hair, so stop by the hairdresser! One word of advice? Make an appointment during a new moon so that your hair will grow back quicker. Surprisingly, your hair is tired after winter, and it’s often colorless and dry. To bring back its sparkle, do a hair mask once a week, but be sure that it works for your hair type!
9. Revive your hobbies and passions!
With more sun now, you want to take your hobbies back up, and this is the perfect time to do it, so hurry up! Get back to your preferred sports club or indulge in what you love. You’ll be more motivated than ever.
10. Benefit from a little bit of sunlight!
Little doses of sunlight are beneficial: it’s excellent for our mental health! It’s one of the best natural antidepressants. Besides improving our mood, it has an effect on melatonin (the hormone for skin pigmentation) that impacts our biological rhythm and our physical equilibrium.
Enjoy the springtime!
