Back To Cool Fall Reboot: How To Schedule For Success
We don’t know about you, but this summer was one of our favorites yet! With yoga festivals, lake trips, and beach parties, we connected with ourselves and our friends. Now that the summer is over, you may be feeling deflated and un-motivated on how to restart your healthy and happy routine. We got advice from the experts on how to reset your body, mind, and work routine to have your best Fall ever! Writing down your goals also increases your chances of sticking to your schedule by 30%! Let’s plan for success.
Work Out - No matter what your fitness goals are, being active is important for your mind and body connection. Experts say that getting a morning sweat in is the best way to start your day. Even something as simple as a 30-minute walk, a quick yoga flow, or light weights will rev up your metabolism and activate fat burning chemicals that enhance your brain capacity, boost endorphins, and influence your overall physical mentality.
Plan Ahead: Try incorporating cardio, stretching, and weights into your weekly schedule. Each Sunday night, write down your workout schedule in your planner. Track if you’re working out in the morning or at night. This will help you to plan ahead for bringing workout gear to work if you’re hitting the gym after the office, or to lay out your workout gear the night before if you’re opting for an early workout. Writing down your goals also increases your chances of sticking to your schedule by 30%.
Eat Well - In a culture of crash and fad diets, it is a revelation to learn to eat to feed our bodies, not starve them. The key is being in tune with your body and learning to eat in a way that honors the natural flow of your body. We all know the struggle of working all day and not allowing time to prepare a healthy meal. By the time we get to our plates, we are so hungry we eat whatever is put in front of us, and our healthy meal planning flies out of the window. Planning ahead will help you to stay calm when eating and knowing what you have planned for each meal will help to allow space for the rest of your day to flow smoothly.
Here are some great goals:
Self-Care - Utilize your calendar for scheduling out self-care moments. For the next month, we challenge you to plan out a moment a day. From doing a face mask, going on a walk, or getting a massage, it’s important to honor your ME time. Write this down in your calendar as well.
Don't use your phone 1 hour upon waking and 1 hour before going to bed.
Go to sleep each night at 10:30 pm and wake up at 6:30 am.
Write in your gratitude journal every single day - morning and night.
