Self-care Could be the secret to your weight loss success
Ready? Set? Rest! Betcha thought I was gonna say something different! But for real…we’re about to jump right into our Crop Top Crunch Time Challenge and I want to make sure we also make some space to catch our breath, literally.
For real, guys, self-care is soooo important. And I know it’s a trendy topic right now, but that’s just all the more reason to jump on it! Plus, practicing self-care can be huge in helping you achieve your weight loss goals.
Don’t believe me? Let’s talk about burnout. You know when you have a big project at school or work and then need to take a ten-year nap after? Or when you kill a super big workout and your muscles are jelly? That’s your body telling you to slow it down, sister. If you ignore it, you can push yourself past the brink.
Daily Self Care > Vacation
Enter self-care. It’s the equivalent of taking a Hawaiian vacation after a major presentation or doing some relaxing stretching post-workout. Think of it like pressing pause on your life so you can relax and refresh. When you hit play again, you’re ready to hit the ground running and slay your #goals!
Practicing self-care on the reg keeps you fresh and motivated to stick with your weight loss goals. When you’re rested it makes it easier to skip the donuts going around your office or to squeeze in that morning workout even when you want to hit snooze. When you’re feeling good, it’s easier to make good choices!
Make It Personal
Self-care looks different for everyone. Maybe it’s reading a book at the beach. Or taking a super long bubble bath. It could be just making space in your day for yoga. It’s whatever makes you feel good! But whatever type of self-care works for you, the important part is doing it.
That’s why we’ve added a self-care section in the LSF app! If you start tracking your self-care like you track your workouts and water intake, you get in the habit of making space to slow down and take care of yourself. That makes crushing it a lot more sustainable, so it’s the key to reaching your goals and making your dreams a reality!
