Some of the most common New Year’s Resolutions are to lose weight, eat healthier, and get in shape. Unfortunately, 80% of people fail to keep these resolutions, and most end up ditching them by mid-February.
We understand that, at the beginning of a new year, many people decide to prioritize their health, but sometimes keeping up a healthy routine can be difficult to maintain. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back – keep reading for some helpful tips to help stay on track with your resolutions and achieve your personal goals!
Maintain a solid exercise routine
The new year is a perfect time to set those fitness goals you’ve had in the back of your mind for months now! What are you trying to accomplish? Lose weight, gain muscle, run a 10k, become more flexible? Your list could include none, some, or all of these. But the real question is – how do you actually get started?
When creating and perfecting your exercise routine, we recommend starting out a little easier and then working your way up to a more intense and challenging regimen. For example, if you’re trying to get into running, you’ll want to start out with a quick, mile-long jog as opposed to a lengthier, 5-mile run. Pushing your body too hard in the beginning can lead to burnout, and you may give up early instead of pushing through. Try researching some training programs online so you can stay on track and train efficiently.
Nourish your body with healthy foods
Sure, you can exercise twice a day, 7 days a week, but if you’re not fueling your body with the correct foods, what’s the point? Filling your body with junk can completely counteract a good workout routine and throw away all of your progress.
You might be wondering, what are the best foods to eat to maintain a healthy lifestyle? Honestly, this is pretty dependent on your own body, because you must take into account allergies, food intolerances, and sensitivities. To keep it simple, we recommend filling your plate with lots of protein and veggies (and a little sweet treat here and there, of course).
Keep your body in check with hemp
If you’re ramping up your training routine and also adjusting your diet, you’ll want to supplement your body with compounds that keep your body in check.
For soothing sore muscles before and after intense workouts, we recommend lathering our hemp balm onto targeted areas of your body, such as your knees, hamstrings, and biceps. This may aid in quicker recovery time so you can push yourself even harder the next day!
In addition to taking care of your muscles, it’s also important to keep your internal systems in tip-top shape. Promote a healthy internal balance and keep your energy up with the addition of our tinctures and seltzers to your daily routine!
