Feel good tips for Summer

Three feel good tips for summer

Wellness is about much more than the way you look. It’s about how you feel. Finding and maintaining a healthy approach to exercise and eating can improve everything, from your energy levels to your outlook on life. We’ve got three simple tips to help you add genuine goodness into your lifestyle, to get you feeling good, inside and out!

Fuel your life

Hectic schedules can leave us reaching for unhealthy convenience foods rather than wholesome, healthy meals. Our Pulses and Rice range are great lunchtime alternatives to shop-bought sandwiches and delicious eaten hot or cold.

If you’re getting ready for a workout, our delicious Blueberry Brown Rice Porridge recipe is a great match. Wholegrain Basmati is a slow-release carbohydrate which will keep you active for longer, and blueberries are packed full of energy and mood-boosting vitamins and antioxidants. So not only will you be active and full of energy, you’ll also feel really upbeat!

Get moving

There are lots of ways to stay active and not all of them have to be strenuous. Little things like jumping off the bus a couple of stops early or taking the stairs wherever possible are great ways to get started. Yoga is a great low intensity exercise and has plenty of health benefits, like improving strength, flexibility and posture, and increasing blood flow.

If you’re already active, a mixture of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and SSC (Steady-State Cardio) can help shake up your fitness routine, for a more effective and enjoyable workout.

Stay Motivated

Stepping on the scales can ruin your motivation. Instead, base your progress on how you feel. Making positive changes to your lifestyle should have you feeling more alert and focused, with more energy to enjoy life. Try apps like MyFitnessPal to keep track of your meals and exercise routine. Pocket Yoga is a great way to monitor and improve your yoga routine. Our Mood Food Manual has more great tips to help you stay motivated. You’ll find plenty of healthy recipe inspiration and feel good tips on our website.
