All year long we look forward to summer. We fantasize about looking and feeling our best at the beach or pool. But once it’s here, what else is there to look forward to?
Fall is historically less exciting: vacation is over, the weather is colder, having to go back to school and less sunshine during the day. But… what if we adjust our mindset about the change of seasons? Heading into the end of summer, don’t dread getting back into a routine! Habits help motivate and make us the best versions of ourselves.The saying that “people are creatures of habit” is true! This phrase can help us to remember that having a routine can be beneficial and is natural for humans. Without a routine, research shows we tend to be more stressed, sleep less and eat poorly.Balancing work, friends, family, hobbies, etc. can be hard to do on any given day. The transition of August to September is notorious for being the time where routines must start up again because school is back.
If it’s been a while since your last workout, you shouldn’t feel shame for getting back into a routine. Here are some tips to help you find the right groove.
