Do you want to get into shape for your holiday?
It's Your Choice
Neglect requires no effort, energy or decision. It's choices that determine destiny!
Look Good With The Right Preparation
For Your Physical Body
When planning your holiday, it is worth considering whether your planned schedule is suitable for the average body or whether your enthusiasm for conquering the elements will require certain preparation. Here is your holiday physical body checklist:
- If planning lots of walking, are your feet in top condition? Now is the time to see to the blisters, hard skin, nails, soreness etc, to give your feet the best chance possible to carry you through the scenic routes that you don't want to miss!
- Sun, sun and more sun! Who doesn't plan this for their holiday and yet- when it comes we so often sizzle and burn. Now is the time to gradually introduce your skin to small amounts of sun each day. Take every opportunity to walk to work or sit outside for your tea break, but watch you don't burn before your holiday begins! Take care to drink plenty of water, which will keep your skin healthy in good stead for the dry climate that a sunny holiday often brings.
- If planning a sporty holiday, begin by doing appropriate stretching beforehand. Especially important for sport such as skiing. No-one wants to incur a sports injury whilst away!
- For all who are planning on wearing that holiday bikini, skimpy sundress or shorts, regular visits to the gym will tone your muscles and help to eliminate the extra fat that you really don't want to squash into your new outfit. Running or jogging will also help in the mission to acquire a figure that you will be proud to bring out into the sunshine. Failing that, invest in a good keep-fit class or dvd to keep you at it and give you goals and encouragement.
Look Good, Feel Great!
How long has it been since you did something you'll remember for the rest of your life?
Look Good, Feel The Benefit With The Right Diet
Most holidays are taken in the Summer months when there is more fresh fruit and vegetables in season. Now is the time to stock up on your vitamins and save money by buying seasonal food. It will taste better and increase your stamina for your well-deserved holiday. The vitamins will also help to increase your resistance to any foreign germs lurking around that your body may be more vulnerable to. Choose fresh salads that will save on preparation time when you could well use that extra time for your holiday preparations, but you will be doing your body a favour too. Start preparing yourself mentally and get in the mood for trying new foods by visiting your local market or delicattesan where you can often find different food to wet your appetite from other countries.
Then there is the diet!
If you really want to look good for your holiday then it might be time to take stock and assess your diet. Choose a diet that will become your new lifestyle that will remain with you long after the initial few weeks. Once you feel the good, as long as you are able to eat proper food, you will be able to carry on if you know that you are being good to yourself. Keep off processed food and invest in a cookbook that will inspire you and help you to prepare some exciting new dishes. It doesn't have to be a difficult, time-consuming process! So choose a healthy way of eating and try new foods that you haven't tried before, that include all the required groups of nutrients and then set yourself the goal that your holiday presents.
The Opportunity For New Beginnings
When You Feel Good, there will be no stopping you!
How often does your body complain by giving you a headache or the flu, when really you need to stop and think about your lifestyle for a while. When did you last allow yourself to imagine, dream, even pray? How often do our holidays carry on our stressful way of life, just in a different location, but we return just as exhausted as when we went!
Now is the time to prepare your mind
Take an inspiring book to read, something that you've always wanted to read perhaps, but never given yourself the opportunity. Include a journal to record your ideas, inspirations and goals that you can follow up when you return home.Think about what you want to achieve in the next few weeks and months and let your holiday be a springboard into new beginnings.
