5 RESOLUTIONS TO GET BACK IN SHAPE 2020


NEW YEAR: 5 RESOLUTIONS TO GET BACK IN SHAPE

Here are 5 sports resolutions that will motivate you

Like every new year, there are many good resolutions at the beginning of January... Alas, the effects are not always felt quickly, so we sometimes give up along the way... However, we are generally full of hope at the idea of doing sports or losing weight, especially after the culinary orgy of the Christmas holidays, but willpower is not enough... Here are 5 sports resolutions that will motivate you all year long!

JOIN A GYM

Joining a gym is a good way to motivate people because you are investing money and it would be a shame to waste it. So, it makes you want to make a profit on your membership, and so you go to the gym! Today, there are subscriptions at all rates, do not hesitate to compare to find the offer that corresponds to your needs but also to your schedule. For example, some gyms offer reduced rates if you only go there for lunch, so if you plan to do your sports sessions on your lunch break, ask around.

Another piece of advice: if you are a beginner, choose a gym that offers group lessons so that you can benefit from the advice of a qualified coach. You'll have to set up a schedule and stick to it, and it turns out that when you're not doing your sport alone, you're less likely to give up!

FIND THE SPORTS PROGRAM THAT SUITS YOU

If you don't like the idea of going to the gym, don't panic, you can very well find your sports routine elsewhere. You can select the program of your choice: muscle strengthening, weight loss or wellness, there is something for every taste and every need! 3 to 4 sessions of 30 minutes per week, adapted to your level and evolving with you! What's more, there's no need to invest in a lot of sports equipment, as these sessions generally only require a floor mat.

TAKE A DAILY BREATH OF FRESH AIR

In this new year, it's important that you adopt new habits, good for your health! And one of them is to walk at least 30 minutes a day, the equivalent of 10,000 steps on average. However, it is important to know that in France, only 25% of us take at least 9000 steps a day, which is not much...

And yet it's very simple to set up: for short trips, forget the car; get off a bus, metro or tram stop early to continue on foot, take the stairs rather than the lift or escalators, go for a walk at lunchtime even if it's for shopping... In short, walk as soon as you can!

And if you like running, why not take the reflex to go running at least once a week? It turns out that jogging is the best antidepressant there is. Indeed, running not only does good for your body, but also helps you to gain control over yourself and fight anxiety.

BETTING ON SPORT TO STOP SMOKING

THE good resolution of the year is to quit smoking. Easier said than done, you say? Well, you should know that physical activity can help you do it!

First of all, having a sporting goal is an excellent motivation to quit smoking. Quitting smoking will in fact improve physical condition and thus make it easier to reach performance goals, for example. Secondly, regular physical activity of any kind helps combat addiction, cravings, stress or the desire to smoke.
Finally, another beneficial effect of physical activity for people wishing to quit smoking is better weight control. Indeed, the fear of weight gain is a brake for many smokers wishing to quit. However, by practicing a sport, this weight gain can be controlled. 

STOPPING PROCESSED SUGARS

Did you know that? Since 1990, each French person has consumed an average of 35kg of sugar per year! That's huge...and very bad for your health (and your figure!). How about challenging yourself to stop using processed sugar? It's a real challenge but here are some tips that can help you achieve it:
Stop buying industrial products containing more than 5 ingredients, especially when they're called glucose, fructose syrup, dextrin, starches... All of these are sugar in the worst form there is, they're industrial sugars that are not natural, so just skip it!
We prefer natural foods as much as possible and for that, it is essential to start cooking again (here is another good resolution!). If you like sweet things, you can make your own desserts and pastries!
You always have a small, healthy, homemade snack with you to make up for an unexpected snack: a handful of almonds and a piece of seasonal fruit will be ideal to stop the sugar between meals.
We try to replace one or two sweet breakfasts a week with salty breakfasts. In fact, by starting the day with sugar, our body quickly asks us for more during the day... And that's where the vicious circle of sugar comes in.
