Making Your Summer Body A Reality

You probably have an idea in your head of what your summer body looks like. But do you genuinely think that you can get there? Your ideal body isn’t your favourite model or celebrity. It’s the best version of you. Not that you should worry about that - you're capable of getting as lean and shapely as you like. Here are some of the keys to making your summer body a reality:


Make A Vision Board And Visualise
This might sound ridiculous, but your subconscious mind plays a huge part in how much you’re capable of achieving. This means that you can’t just tell yourself positive things on the surface. You really need to believe these things deep down to make a change in your life. You can do this by making a vision board. Sit down and use magazines and different sources to put pictures that inspire you all in one place. You can do this online, but doing it in person will usually give you better results. You need to put this somewhere you see it every day, and focus on it for a few minutes when you can. Do it before you start your day, and before you sleep, if possible. Visualise as you focus on it. How will it feel to have the body of your dreams? Doing all of these things will make new connections in your brain and make you believe right to your core that you can achieve the body you want. Just make sure your vision board really inspires you and lifts you up. It should not make you feel bad about yourself, or it’ll have the opposite effect!


Change Your Mindset
As we’ve discussed, your mindset is very important. Making your vision board as visualising will help. But you also need to focus on changing your negative thoughts to positive thoughts. You need to be able to change the story you’re telling yourself in your head. You need to be kind to yourself, and focus on all of the amazing things about you. Only when you start doing this, will you get the results that you want.

Learn About Fitness And Nutrition
Learning as much as you can about fitness and nutrition will leave you better equipped to create a plan of action. There are many plans online, but not all of them will work for you. You also need to bear in mind that some of them are total rubbish, so you must only go with trusted sources. Watching Youtube videos is a great way to learn. Write down things you want to remember. Invest in things. Look for fitness equipment for sale if you think you’ll use it. In general, you need to know that your diet and the things you eat make the most difference. You need balance, and to focus on health first and foremost. Fitness won’t be anything like what you think either. You can do a short workout a couple of times a week and it’ll still make a difference. This is why you need to make the effort to learn about it.

Make sure you’re committed to this lifestyle and you’ll make your summer body a reality!

The new year is fast approaching and many of us are looking to turn a new leaf and create a new image for ourselves. Of course, resolutions can change our behaviour and habits, but why not use this year’s resolutions to create a new look for yourself? This could boost your confidence significantly! Here are just a few areas that you might like to focus on to get the ball rolling the right direction!
Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…

Choosing the Best Travel Companion for Your Next Getaway

If you’re planning on heading away from home at some point in the upcoming year, chances are that you have already looked into different destinations, different excursions and activities, and different ways of getting from A to B. But have you put much thought into who you are going to travel with? Your travel companion really can make or break a trip. A trip to somewhere that isn’t all too exciting and lacks things to see and do with someone you get on really well with will generally be better enjoyed than a trip to a stunning and luxurious location with someone you can’t stand. So, let’s take a moment to consider a few different companions that you might want to consider before agreeing to a trip and heading away!
Your Partner
