As 2020 comes to a close and a New Year is right around the corner, have you thought about the goals you have in mind? While New Year’s resolutions often get a bad reputation, having a goal in place, especially when it comes to health and/or weight loss, can be very helpful. The most difficult thing to do is just to start, so here are some ideas to help inspire your health journey in 2021.
IT TAKES TIME
Achieving real, demonstrable change takes time. Any sort of change in habit or lifestyle involves commitment to time management and building new habits. If you’re looking to lose weight, this means that consistency and patience is important. Don’t beat yourself up if it takes longer than you expect to see results. Small decisions consistently and thoughtfully made result in big changes.
During a weight loss journey, the correct diet is important. In fact, it’s commonly stated that food choices matter more than exercise for sustainable weight loss. However, diet changes don’t have to include unhealthy restrictions or limitations. A great way to start making healthier changes to your nutrition is to prepare your meals in advance. Whether you prefer to do it all in one day or throughout the week, researching and following a meal plan can go a long way in helping you reach your weight loss goals.
DOABLE EXERCISE ROUTINE
As stated above, exercise is less important when it comes to weight loss, but to improve your health, following a doable fitness routine is highly recommended. This doesn’t mean you have to train for a marathon or start lifting heavy weights! Start with something you enjoy, like walking or biking, as a way to incorporate extra movement into your daily routine. Take the opportunity to park further away from the store to get in some extra steps. If you’re stuck at home, walk up and down the stairs in your house several times for a quick cardio burst. The key is to find exercise that you enjoy, which makes it much more likely that you’ll stick with it.
If you follow a healthy diet, incorporate frequent exercise and still struggle to lose weight, there are other options for you. TruSculpt is a body sculpting treatment that removes areas of stubborn body fat without surgery or downtime – regardless of your fitness level! For muscle building and body sculpting, EmSculpt is a non-invasive option. With EmSculpt, you can get rid of deep layers of fat and uncover well defined muscle without surgery. At Ascent Laser Aesthetics, we offer both services, as well as scar reduction treatments. Want to be hairfree for next summer?
