Nutrition, Fitness, and Wellness articles for busy women who want to lead a healthy, fulfilled life they love.
We did it! We made it through winter, and spring has now sprung. I know the winter doldrums hit a lot of us pretty hard this year. In a COVID environment, many of our favorite indoor winter hobbies weren’t possible, and that takes its toll after a while. Now that spring is here, it’s time to switch gears and get our heads back in a great place to keep working towards our goals!
A couple weeks ago, the doldrums hit me pretty hard. I was struggling to maintain my workout intensity and look forward to eating the healthy foods on my personal menu. I realized I needed to shake things up a little bit to get out of my funk. I decided to take my son on a couple tours of local colleges and grab lunch together after. It was a small change, but it was enough to shake up my routine a little bit, get us out of the house, and keep our eyes away from screens for a while. Now that our weather is warming up, we’re excited to break out the pickleball paddles and change up my exercise routine a little bit!
Once you make a change, you might be surprised by how much easier it is to get into a new mindset. An easy switch to your workout routine might mean taking your daily walk in a new neighbourhood or different park than usual. You could also invite a friend out for a socially distanced walk to shake things up. If your diet needs a little something special, try grabbing takeout from a different restaurant than usual! When you’re looking for a small change overall, something as easy as a short drive can get you some new scenery and put you in a better headspace.
