These images always ignite a little spark inside your belly or a feeling of I can be that person too.  You receive a healthy hit of inspiration and all these great ideas start flowing to your mind. Then you quickly realise just how busy your life is and how little time you have for a workout or correct nutrition plan. It takes a little more than an Instagram pic to truly get your inner fire burning. So how the heck do these wellness superstars stay on track for optimal health and fitness anyway?


Forward planning – Prioritise blocking out time to train or eat healthy


No not next week or next month. Start pencilling in specific time slots now! This is where you dedicate energy towards a workout or time to learn about a new aspect of nutrition. Is your goal to tone up and put in the hard yards at the gym? Or do you feel you’re lacking in know-how about what type of diet best suits your body type? Get moving in creating healthy auto-pilot habits!


More time at the gym

When is your best time for a workout? Everyone is different, perhaps you’re not a morning person or just don’t have the energy to spare at the end of a long day. One of the main problems of our modern day society, is just how sedentary we have become. This is where popular clichés come into play like “A one-hour workout is 4% of your day- no excuses!” or “Use it or lose it”. Studies prove time and time again that physical activity is the key to a long and happy life free of disease.


Increasing your knowledge on nutrition

There are endless ways to learn more about correct nutrition and a great starting point is time blocking for that education. Do you commute to work and often choose to get lost in social media? Use that time instead to listen to an educational podcast, or read a book on a chosen health topic. These little windows of opportunity became invaluable for creating the best version of yourself. So use them wisely!


You can never know it all

Once you’re at a point where you feel you’re really knowledgeable on the topic of health and fitness, don’t treat that as an endpoint. Even if you hold a diploma or been through 84 years of experience! There’s so much new information in this field that’s evolving day in, day out. Continue to put yourself out there and attend seminars, read books and most importantly challenge your thoughts. These are the techniques that reveal new shortcuts, to better yourself and inspire others to follow in your inspiring footsteps.
