Turn of the year is usually the time when people feel the pressure to start latest trend diets, set ambitious sports goals or commit to other kind of lifestyle changes. However, we in Sports Tracker encourage everyone to take a look at the past year and appreciate those moments when sports and moving your body brought you joy and lifted your spirit.
Whether you aim to keep going or want to start from the scratch, here are some tips for the upcoming year!
Find your own thing
In case you would like to find a new sports hobby, beginning of the year is the time to start looking. Explore what kind of courses, boot camps or events are arranged in the nearby area and join in! Often sports centers and other service providers offer free trial classes so try different options without having to make long term commitments. Joy of sports starts from finding your own thing!
Work out together
Sports is a great way to meet up with friends and family in the busy everyday life. Set up a day in the week when you go jogging together or take a dance class with your significant other. Social media is also a good platform for finding groups where you get to meet new people and socialize.
Remember the health benefits
Countless studies have approved how being active supports your physical and mental wellbeing. Abs are great but there are several other aspects you might want to focus on, such as enhancing cardiovascular endurance, releasing stress, gaining strength and getting more flexible. Also, moving your body in the middle of the workday is a great way to get more energy and avoid stiffness.
Track your progress
Obviously we in Sports Tracker encourage people to follow their progress and record the precious moments when taking time to take care of yourself.
How did I feel after working out a certain amount of times per week? Have my runs been longer than last month? Which were my favorite running routes? Use your sports diary to plan and organize and you’ll have more time to do what you actually enjoy!
Most of all we would like to wish everyone wonderful and active year 2019!
