Do you ever feel unmotivated, stuck in a rutt or just plain lazy? If you have, here are 10 tips to help motivate yourself live a healthy lifestyle!
1. Find Your Motivation
Exercising can be boring. Admit it. It can get real tedious and discouraging, especially when you don’t see results. You can overcome this being inspired motiviation. Find your motivation by being very clear about what you want to achieve. And why. Imagining what achieving your goal will feel like. What would it allow you to do? Why do you want it? This doesn’t only apply to exercise but to everything you do! Finding the motivation to do something is key to consistency, and will make achieving your healthy lifestyle goals a lot easier.
2. Focus, Focus, Focus
Enhance your focus by completely closing out any distractions from the outside by taking the time to concentrate on the present moment and being actively aware of your surroundings and feelings.
3. Change Your Routine
Changing up your routine is just as important as having a routine. At the same time, doing something over and over again can get boring and monotonous. Changing up your routine is a effective way to avoid getting bored, and to keep your body guessing. Variety is vital to exercise and living a healthy lifestyle.
4. Set Goals
Start off small and secure, setting easy and reachable goals for yourself. As time goes on, increase the difficulty of achieving each following goal. As you see progress you’ll find your dedication increases. Remember – Rome wasn’t built in a day!
5. Make It Fun
No matter what you do, it’s important have fun. After all, having fun is not only enjoyable, it is also good for you! If you feel you’re starting to get bored or reluctant to work, try to make up new ways on how to complete tasks. Not only will it boost commitment, it will also increase your creativity!
6. Make Physical Activity Part of Your Daily Routine
Instead of going to work by bus, try walking, or riding your bicycle! Adding physical activity to your dailty routine will increase your stamina and physical strength. There is good evidence vigorous activity can bring health benefits over and above that of moderate activity. A rule of thumb is that one minute of vigorous activity provides the same health benefits as two minutes of moderate activity.
7. Put It on Paper
What’s the point of creating a routine in your head and then forgetting about it? Write everything you plan to do down on paper! Doing so provides a sense of structure and direction, and will make it much easier for you to keep track of things!
8. Join Forces with Friends, Neighbours or Others
You probably aren’t the only one trying to make a healthy change. Find some buddies and go for it together! It will feel great by having their support and encouragement, and you’re bound to have more fun along the way.
9. Reward Yourself
After a day of hard work and exercise, it’s a good idea to reward yourself. Do something you like, eat something you shouldn’t (in moderation). Make yourself feel great about what you did!
10. Be Flexible
You don’t have to follow a strict routine all the time. Keep yourself flexible by changing up the game! Be open to new ideas and ways of exercising. Try some new things that are supposedly good for your healthy but that you otherwise wouldn’t. Open yourself up to even more healthy activities!
The Wellness Hub in Berkhamsted welcomes IV Boost therapy clinic
IV Boost – a renowned IV therapy clinic on London’s Wimpole Street – has opened at The Wellness Hub in Berkhamsted. Founded in 2005 by medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz, IV Boost takes a holistic approach to health and wellness to help boost and restore the body’s natural ability to be well, energised and able to resist ageing.
“We are delighted to welcome Dr Josh and the IV Boost to The Wellness Hub and are excited to be offering our customers these fantastic IV therapies,” says Emma James, MD and owner The Wellness Hub on Lower Kings Street. “IV Boost prides itself on its medical skills and personalised approach which mirrors our commitment to offering bespoke wellbeing solutions. I have no doubt its services will prove popular in complementing and enhancing our existing range of therapies which include physiotherapy, massage, beauty therapy, sports massage, Pilates, personal training and yoga.”
“We have been very impressed by The Wellness Hub and have been made most welcome here,” says Dr Joshua Berkowitz. “IV therapy is increasingly popular as a means to achieving optimum health and we have been looking for a new clinic outside London to meet the growing demand for our services.
“The Wellness Hub is the perfect site for IV Boost and we look forward to meeting its customers. We recognise that IV therapy will be new to many people and clients can rest assured they will have a consultation before any therapy to ensure it suits their exact needs.”
IV Vitamin Therapy
Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy has been practised for many years, often to support conventional medical treatment of a wide range of health conditions. It is the fastest way to deliver nutrients throughout the body because it bypasses the digestive system and is 90-100% absorbed directly into the organs (compared to 20-50% absorption if taken orally).
A vitamin shot is an intramuscular injection that treats various vitamin deficiencies. It is absorbed into your bloodstream via your muscles. Unlike vitamins taken orally, vitamin shots bypass the digestive system and result in a 90-100% absorption rate. Many people feel the effects within hours of the treatment which takes just a few minutes to administer.
Medical grade ozone is a highly active and reactive form of oxygen which is prepared by a highly skilled practitioner just before being administered. Ozone therapy can restore optimum oxygen levels in the body by increasing the red blood cell count and this, in turn, stimulates the release of oxygen into the body’s tissues.
Diagnostic testing gives a very clear picture of your health and can help pinpoint problems that may be missed through consultation or ‘standard’ blood tests offered by GPs. IV Boost uses a leading London laboratory which offers a very quick turnaround of precise, accurate results.
IV Boost can deliver a range of non-surgical treatments to enhance the appearance and treat the visible signs of ageing. These rejuvenating treatments use the latest evidence-based products and cutting-edge technology to deliver safe, effective and long-lasting effects. Performed to the highest standard, each treatment plan is tailored to address individual concerns to optimise results.
