4 Easy and Healthy Habits to Start Right Now
Four pieces of advice straight from our #SnapNation trainers.
Who's ready to take control of 2021?! Getting started can be the hardest part of your wellness journey, so we enlisted our #snapnation trainers to help you out. Here are four tips our trainers live by that help them accomplish their physical and mental wellness goals- big or small.
1. Four More Core:
Keep it simple in the beginning. Start with the “Four More Core”
1. More water
2. More veggies
3. More exercise
4. More sleep
Without changing much else, this will get you moving in the right direction.

2. Set Goals
Set SMART goals and share them with your loved ones. Start slowly and keep increasing your effort. Open your calendar (or family calendar) and schedule your time for exercise. Pack a bag with your gym clothes and keep them in your car at all times and don't go home first!

3. Make Small and Consistent Changes
Each 1-2 weeks focus on one new habit and keep doing that habit until you feel like you have mastered it. Change takes time and to have long-term successful results you need to make the right amount of change for you. Taking on too many new things at once may become daunting causing you to give up. Have a plan that involves small changes like drinking x amount more water each day for a week, going to the gym 3 x per week for 30 minutes for 2 weeks, adding 10 minutes of cardio to your day etc.

4. Have a Plan!
Have a plan! Does your plan meet your goals? Cardio time vs. resistance training, muscle balance (agonist vs antagonists) and recovery days should all be addressed within the plan.
