The head is heavy, the muscles are weak, the winter was long. But from now on it's time to get out of bed again - summer is here! So that you are perfectly prepared for the active season and can easily withstand any heat wave, we reveal the best tricks and tips so that you feel completely comfortable and fit this summer!
1. Do sport - a suffering shared is a suffering halved
Your motivation is low again and you just can't bring yourself to exercise? Arrange to meet up with friends to exercise. Together you can motivate and support each other much better - be it outdoors or virtually via video transmission.
2. Avoid stress
Stress hormones are not only an absolute motivation killer, they also disrupt your fat burning. That's why it's important to approach sports calmly. A combination of yoga, strength exercises and active movements allows the body to relax and get fit at the same time.
3. Drink lots of water
Drinking cold water not only burns calories but also helps the body get fit. Especially in the warm season, it is important to drink a lot to replenish missing minerals that are excreted through sweating. Positive side effects such as beautiful and radiant skin then appear automatically.
4. Eat natural foods
Canned soup, fast food or packaged food - all these processed foods should be out of your pantries. They are industrially treated and often contain chemical substances. It's better to choose fresh products that provide pure energy and valuable nutrients - or an I·DO juice. Because you are what you eat!
5. You can live healthily without making sacrifices
Stay away from exclusion diets! They only teach you renunciation, which can lead to deficiency symptoms and illnesses in the long term. Better: If necessary, try to change your diet and combine it with enough exercise and sleep - these are still the best prerequisites for a healthy life. A juice cleanse can be a first step towards a healthy and balanced change in diet.
6. Plant milk instead of cow's milk
Factory farming, poor feed quality due to the addition of hormones and antibiotics - there are many factors that influence the quality of milk. Alternatively, depending on your tolerance, you can switch to oat or almond milk . Make sure that they contain calcium and do not contain sugar.
7. Proteins for a toned body
Proteins make our muscles efficient and participate in important, organic regeneration processes. This makes it all the more important that we supply our bodies with healthy proteins. Fortunately, the choice is large: not only meat and fish are good sources of protein, but also vegetarian foods such as Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, Swiss cheese, eggs, kidney beans, lentils, nuts, tofu, peas, wheat sprouts and quinoa.
8. Eat mindfully
Every time you go to the fridge, ask yourself: Is it boredom or am I really hungry? If you just don't know what to do with yourself, turn around again. Rather read a book, listen to music, do something productive. A little workout at home can't hurt either. You should only eat when you are hungry.
