You know full well that exercising, sleeping and healthy eating should be on your priority list. When you exercise regularly, you’re more positive, energetic, productive and creative. Maintain Fitness when you stay with us here at Amore B&B.
It’s easy to fall into the trap of believing there’s no time to have a life beyond work. But personal health doesn’t have to become a daunting task that commands large chunks of your day nor is it something to be put in abeyance when you are having a short break.
1. Schedule your workout.
When you’re short on time or traveling frequently, you must maximize every moment. During recreational periods, focus on quality instead of quantity and prioritize intensity over duration. Choose full body workouts, circuit-training intervals and other high-intensity methods to optimize your workout. Maybe a walk through one of the 3 National Parks within a short stroll of Amore B&B.
2. Have a Plan B.
Establishing a backup plan ahead of time is essential to fail-proof your fitness. You will need a healthy early start breakfast – 8 am heaps of fruit, juice, healthy cereals, quality breads and salad, spring water etc.
If you can’t make it to the gym for your scheduled session, seek other forms of movement to continue your daily exercise habit. Alternatively, you could bring with you kettlebells for some home workouts. Any regular activity is better than nothing. Exercise in the privacy of your balcony here at Amore B&B.
3. Sleep better.
Sleep is your foundation to maintain fitness routines and function at your peak performance level. Like workouts, sleep must be scheduled. We here at Amore ensure that our King size beds with toppers, great mattresses, and comfy pillows are always maintained at a premium level. Blockout curtains for a perfect night’s sleep cover all windows
Studies have shown that healthy sleep habits can help you keep your waistline under control. Sleep also plays a positive role in increasing your creativity, productivity, energy levels and decision-making abilities.
4. Get creative .
It’s still no excuse to skip activity altogether for the day. If life is that hectic, the most logical solution is integrating exercise into your daily workflow or your recreational hours generally. The mornings are a great time to start.
