Set Goals


Setting goals is so important when it comes to fitness and your mental wellbeing. The key is to make sure you don’t set goals that are too unrealistic in comparison to the fitness level that you’re capable of. So say you’ve just started to jog on your lunch break, let's be honest, you’re not gonna be able to run the length of a marathon the week after! If you have an Apple Watch or Fitbit, you can set daily Move, Stand & Exercise targets that will reward you if you complete them all in the day (and by reward we mean you’ll see a little animation of your rings closing) which is super encouraging when you’re having a demotivated day.

Meditate More


As well as physical fitness, taking time to meditate and focus on yourself is an amazing stress reliever and helps to realign yourself. Taking even 10 minutes out of your day to meditate is amazing in helping to promote positivity, emotional and mental wellbeing and is a great chance to take a step back from out of your day.
