You have been working on your swimsuit body for a whole year (or at least since after winter…), but what will happen during the December holidays? Will all of your hard work be lost when you leave for the beach? Or will you stay fit and healthy? Here are some holiday tips to stay fit during December:
Regular physical exercise has many mental benefits, and boxing is no exception. Boxing can teach you many things about yourself, and aside from the physical benefits, have a positive influence on your mental wellbeing, too.
When you are stressed, you might start to experience symptoms like mood swings, memory loss, brain fog, anxiety, difficulty losing weight, and high blood pressure, to name only a few. Finding stress management techniques to lower your stress levels is crucial if you plan on living a long, healthy life.
Towards the end of the week, we all tend to feel the strain on our energy levels to some extent. Some people experience it more intensely than others, depending on their workload and physical demands. However, for some, exhaustion tends to be a daily struggle, regardless how many hours rest they get before the next day.
Losing weight in summer is hard enough, add the cold of winter and it’s a downhill battle! If you’re like thousands who go out of their way to reduce your pants size, but nothing seems to be happening, we understand. Regardless of how much time you spend on the treadmill or how many salads you eat, you just can’t seem to drop the kilogrammes.
One of the perks of being a woman is the uncomfortable onset of menopause which can occur anywhere between the ages of 30 – 55; depending on genetics, lifestyle factors, possible autoimmune diseases, chromosome defects, and even epilepsy. Thus, you can never be sure when menopause will occur, but you definitely know when it’s busy happening. Forget about the hot flashes and mood swings, most menopausal women also have trouble sleeping and maintaining a healthy weight.
Unfortunately, winter is quickly creeping in, turning your normal everyday workout routine into something to be dreaded. Not only is it tough enough getting out of bed on a cold winters day, working out seems to be the last thing on your list. Apart from wanting to eat all the time and stay warm and cosy under a blanket, we lack the motivation to get our bodies in shape. With all the layering, no one’s going to see the extra love handle, right?
As exciting as it is growing a baby in your belly, most pregnant women do contemplate what they have to do after giving birth in order to lose the excess weight. Perhaps you’re one of those soon-to-be fitness moms who maintain a strict exercise regime during the entire nine months. However, the majority of women enjoy this time “off” to indulge in those extra scoops of delicious ice-cream or pancakes.
As driven human beings, we tend to overdo it at times; especially if you work a full-time job and spend plenty of overtime at the gym. We understand. The more time you spend working out, the better you feel. The better you feel, the more time you want to spend working out. However, ever so often, it all gets the better of us. Too much can be bad for your health, in which case it’s a good idea to take a rest day.
