In this video I share with you my top highlights from my time at NZ's premier fitness and wellbeing conference "FitEx 2015".
I believe in life long learning. Here I share my own personal takeaways with you to help keep you up to date.
I hope that some of these tips that help you boost your own health and happiness!
In a nutshell
- Create a healthy lifestyle by anchoring new habits with tactile reminders to keep you on track
- Be incredibly aware of the effects of long term stress and rather than treating the just the symptoms, treat the cause!
- You body is desgined to move, keep yourself feeling great by moving and mobilising yourself. One of the best ways to do that is via play!
- When thinking about making a dietary change, ask yourself what you would feel most comfortable with and make that adjustment (without a deprivation mentality or feeling as though someone has told you what you MUST do.)
- Take great care with HIIT (high intensity interval training) not to overdo it as it can be more detrimental than beneficial - this links back to stress again and the importance of recovery and regeneration.
- Most of all, be the BEST YOU, you can be!
