Vincit Pro Fitness - HIIT Exercise At Home
I hope you are well and creating a positive environment from which you can support the rest of your household during these times? When gyms are closed, we are working from home or potentially cannot continue work at this time, feeling we are left only with our thoughts, movement is severely restricted, food is being hoarded by some and sleep patterns are effected........where do you turn to for support, to create a daily routine that supports both your physical and mental well-being? If all that is 'normal' to us is removed, how can we create a positive environment to live in, particularly when taking into consideration our children and their well-being? I am a firm believer in creating your own calm, creating your own positive connection to self first......it's here, once you have found this new routine and positive approach, you can create a fantastic foundation for supporting those you care for the most.
"PLACE YOUR OWN OXYGEN MASK ON FIRST BEFORE HELPING OTHERS"
Here are 7 ways you can create a healthy mind and body during this period of uncertainty: When you do, amazing things can and will happen: 1: Exercise In Your Own Home - Understanding you can exercise effectively within a small space inside your house, this will create alertness, the body will produce endorphins that trigger happiness and calmness which you will radiate to others around you. 2: Manage Body Weight Effectively - Exercise also reduces the production of insulin which allows more fat to be used as energy as long as you avoid those unnecessary sugary sports drinks prior to your workout. Exercising in a group is fantastic and in this virtual world it's happening right now and many are taking advantage of such sessions. Information is on our It Only Takes 60days2success FB page if you want to join us. 3: Boost Your Immune System - Understanding how certain foods will help boost your immune system function; crucial at a time like this. There are many anti inflammatory foods out there with Turmeric and Ginger being just 2 of them. Improving your health from the inside out can be done even in times of limited resource. 4: Lower Anxiety Levels - Anxiety reducing techniques will not only impact on your ability to sleep better but also on your bodys ability to maintain a healthy weight. Excess stress hormones are stored inside fat cells, making it more difficult for the body to use fats as a fuel source. While correct amounts of cortisol are key to many fundamental body functions; an excess of this hormone can lead to those happy hormones to stop functioning. 5: Connect Better With Yourself - This is a great time to reflect on what is ultimately important for you. We are quickly realising those things we thought were important like cars, holidays, houses, jewellery and other material goods, just aren't significant! What is significant is your health! You can change it today.......understanding simple ways to cook, exercise and calm the worried mind, these solutions are out there if you choose to look. Meditation, listening to calming music, exercising, reading and getting creative are just a few. 6: Reduce The Effects of Menopause - It's times like this when solitude is abundant, the feelings of peri menopause or menopause can be felt at an amplified level. Engaging in effective exercise will reduce hot flushes, strengthen bones, prevent weight gain, boost mood and reduce the risk of cancers; nows the time to act. Effective nutrition will reduce the symptoms of menopause too, including healthy fats, good quality protein sources, foods rich in calcium and reducing caffeine and refined sugar in food and drinks (including alcohol), will all have a beneficial effect. 7: Boost Testosterone Levels - After the age of 30 mens testosterone levels will begin to fall naturally but the rate of decline is dependant on several factors like stress levels, sleep quality, exercise and a lack of nutritionally consistency. Signs of this accelerated fall can be a lack of motivation, increased tiredness, reduced muscle bulk, problems sleeping and low mood and increased body fat storage. It doesn't have to be an ageing thing, you can boost testosterone levels with effective exercise (30-40mins home workouts) 3 - 4 times per week, eating natural foods with a good balance of fats, proteins and carbohydrates in the right quantity, getting plenty of sunlight, reducing stress and anxiety and sleeping between 7 - 8hrs can boost testosterone levels by 15%. At a time when uncertainty can dominate the thoughts we have, simply having the approach that there is a way to become a much healthier version of yourself through this period and come out the other end with amazing habits and systems in place is extremely refreshing. If you are someone who is struggling with creating a routine right now, let's arrange a call to see how you can stop the uncertainty and put your goals into action; be part of the collective making amazing changes and positively impacting on the lives of those they care for the most.
