After all the over consumption of food and drinks throughout the holidays, we often like to take January to get back into a health kick. Starting off the new year with fitness can really create a fresh start for the upcoming year.
Here are some tips and tricks to get back into the fitness routine.
1. Having the right mentality
It is so important to be in the right mindset when wanting to start or restart working out. Focus on what makes you feel good and don’t push yourself to the point where it is unenjoyable. Find an form of fitness that you really enjoy to make it a form of leisure rather than work.
2. Buy some cute workout clothes.
Working out in clothes that we feel confident in can really help with the process. Invest in some cute athleisure so that whether you’re working out in your living room or in the gym, you feel confident!

3. Accessibility is key.
Whether it’s going to a gym close to home or working out in your home, make sure your exercise room is easily accessible. It will always make you more likely to work out if there isn’t a million and one excuses as to why you can’t go. Make it a little easier on yourself by making your fitness accessible.
4. Give yourself some grace.
Listen to your body and some days you might just not feel like it. We all have those days! Don’t beat yourself up. Take the day off, and get back to it when you’re feeling up to it. Self-criticism only causes harm. Talk to yourself as if you were talking to someone else. Give yourself a break like you would someone else.
