Have you had a bit of an indulgent period? Is your body not feeling its best? No need to stress! Bouncing back doesn’t need to be hard or scary. Instead of feeling guilty or overwhelmed by making healthy changes, simply start with the basics and ease your way back on the road to a healthier you.
We’ve outlined a few tips and yummy recipes below to help you on your way!
Did you have a big weekend? There’s a good chance that you are dehydrated, especially if there was alcohol involved, or you ate foods that were very high in sodium. Water is the best way to flush out toxins and give your body the rest that it needs. If you’re after that extra boost why not add in a slice of lemon or orange?
Get a good night’s rest
Having a late night or not getting enough quality sleep can leave you feeling rather drained. Having eight hours of sleep each night can help your immune system function and fight the common cold. Remind yourself to get to bed earlier this week so you can catch up on some much-needed sleep.
Enjoy a bowl of veggies
You know that good feeling you have when eating a big bowl of veggies? Our bodies need veggies, and we feel so much better when we fuel up with them! Why not try making some Veggie Rice Paper Rolls or load up on veggies with a Sweet Potato Mexi Bowl.
Have some fruit!
Bounce back with fruit! Fruit is naturally filled with vitamins and minerals, which is exactly what our bodies need after an indulgent period. But don’t just grab an apple, make it fun! Why not make yourself some delicious Fruit Kebabs!
Get back into your workout routine
It’s easy to lose motivation to get back into your fitness goals but stepping into the gym or heading to yoga is exactly what your body is craving. Working up a sweat and moving your body will help improve your overall fitness and wellbeing, so even if you aren’t in the mood, try at least going for a walk!
But most of all, don’t be so hard on yourself! Having one indulgent moment isn’t a reason to give up on your health goals!
