With the summer in full flow, I feel that many people are looking at their current lifestyles and feeling like they should and can make some changes to improve it in some way. A lifestyle change can be anything from looking at your diet and increasing the amount of water you drink, to being more active and exercising regularly. But most importantly it is about the way you feel and making positive changes to look and feel your best.
So if you do feel like you want to make some changes you may be wondering the best places to feel motivated and inspired to do it. I thought I would share with you what some of them are.
Look at social media
One of the best ways to feel inspired is to consider looking online and social media really does have everything at your fingertips. Searching a hashtag using the words lifestyle change, diet or fitness journey will bring you an array of people possibly doing the same thing as you.
Sharing their journey and reaching out with tips and advice. Instagram especially is a great platform for this as a lot of people like to share their transformations. You’ll could even create a separate account for your own lifestyle change and journey, where you can follow people and also share your own progress which may inspire someone else in the future.
Read different blogs
On the subject of the internet blogs are another great source of information and inspiration. People use a blog as a step further from sharing progress on Instagram or Facebook and write posts with tips, their experiences, their opinions and advice, along with more pictures.
Blogs like https://blog.inkdly.com/ also have tips and advice on different techniques you can try and fitness trends to embrace. Blogs might also include things like reviews of gym or active-wear as well as wearable technology and smartphone applications you could try.
Speak to friends and family
There is nothing quite like the feeling of discussing your ideas and motivation with friends and family. Surrounding yourself with positive people and making the most of what they have to say. They are your biggest fan and also one of the biggest motivators that you can have in your life.
Letting them know about what you intend to do means that they can support you. They can understand your need for fitness, your diet changes and help you along the way. It is always good to have a good support network around you.
Seek out local exercises and classes you can enjoy
Finally, if you are struggling with your lifestyle change because of the impression you get that grueling gym sessions and only eating salad is on the cards then think again. Looking into you local area will identify things that you can do.
From the sports club hotline regular evening classes for things like yoga or Zumba to thinking about the trying new foods by exploring replies online. It doesn’t need to be a boring change that you make in your life, but one that makes you feel great and full of life.
I hope that this gives you some idea on where you can find your inspiration.
