Create new habits
Whether you want to lose weight or run a marathon, you will need to create new habits to help you achieve them. Rather than cutting out things like crisps or chocolate or starting speed work, look at the things that aren’t part of your daily routine.
Are you drinking 2 litres of water a day?
Do you regularly get a full night’s sleep of at least 7 hours unbroken?
Are you already creating time to exercise every day, even if it’s just to go for a walk?
These are the first questions I ask my clients. They make a massive impact on weight loss, sports performance as well as your own mental health. Improving your hydration, sleep quality and time for you will help you perform better and eliminate cravings for unhealthy snacks.
Drink water regularly throughout the day.
If you’re not exercising already, go for a short walk early morning and in the evening.
Stop checking emails/browsing social media at least 30 minutes before you want to go to sleep.
Read a book or listen to music and you’ll begin to sleep more soundly and feel fresher when you wake up.
