Here are some of my top tips to recover after a long weekend with too many goodies, nights out, hard work week, kids schedule draining us, etc. etc. — without feeling bad and beating yourself up!
- Refocus –
Set yourself up for major success by writing down all of your weekly, short-term goals. Writing a goal down creates excitement and visualization!
- Reset –
Review exactly what it is you need to get back on track, be it healthy eating or excercise or both! Set short term small goals for yourself to reach them. For Ex. This week I will meal prep on Sunday for 3 days & Work out 20 mins for 4 days.
Oddly enough the more we “fall off” or “out” of our healthy eating habits and lifestyle, the more we appreciate that 30 mins a day we have for ourselves to exercise or make a healthy meal. The more we can be so thankful we GET to workout & that our bodies allow us to do so.
- Do not over Compensate-
I know it is SO tempting to grab that Venti Latte or that sugary energy drink when youre drained and trying to stay on top of everything on your to-do list. The mind game of the ups and downs and how hard we are on ourselves is insane. But TRUST when I say your body does not want/ need all that caffeine when trying to recover. It will actually send your adrenals into overdrive and bring you even more down – resulting in a suppressed immune system- hello after party colds. The best thing to do is drink 3 litres of water a day, have some coconut water, pop a multivitamin and a B12 for natural energy, and carry on!
