3 Steps to a Healthier You This Summer
The sun is shining a little bit longer, and the temperatures are getting a little warmer, which means now is the time to begin your plan to be fit and healthy for summer! We know life is better when we are healthier. The Franciscan Health Fitness Centers team offers these three simple steps to a healthier you this summer.
Step 1: Know Your "Why"
People generate results when they have a passionate desire as to why they are committing to be healthier. Maybe it is an upcoming marriage, reunion, or simply doctor's orders? There are several life events that can demand we perk up and get serious about our health. What is your "why?" What is the driving force (purpose) behind you making the decision to be healthier this summer?
Step 2: Create Concrete Goals
We have a limited amount of weeks between now and summer. Therefore, your goals need to specific, attainable, meaningful and measurable. For many, being healthier is about feeling great! For others, being healthier may be losing a few pounds or adding on lean muscle. Whatever your "why" may be, your goals need to be clear from the beginning. You will succeed if you have a realistic set of goals, implement consistent efforts, and love the reason behind your journey. Now how will you get there? What is your plan?
Step 3: Work Your Plan
Most people fail to meet their health goals is because of one of three reasons:
- They didn't identify their "why."
- Their goals were too vague.
- They simply did not have a plan.
We know results require planning. Your fitness plan should be built with your "why" in mind, incorporate your specific goals, and be realistic! We can help you create your plan, or provide you the environment, equipment and atmosphere to work your own plan. We are here to help ensure you get the most out of your health this summer.
