Winter, cold and snow outside the window, so how to take care of your form in such conditions? Going to the pool threatens with ear infections or sinusitis, jogging can lead to a broken leg, and the gym will soon be overcrowded with people who implement the “new year – new me” program. What can you do at home to stay in shape and take care of your health at the same time? Here are some patents on how to take care of yourself without leaving home

Start the change from within

Anyone who knows a little bit about the subject will tell you that the change in your figure should start with your diet. Try to eliminate highly processed foods, unhealthy fats, excess salt and sugar from your diet. Introduce a diet rich in protein, fibre and vitamins, start eating vegetables and fruit. Bet on seasonality and take advantage of what nature has the best at a given time of year

It is also worth implementing dietary supplementation to enrich your diet and fill in all the deficits to support your body. Depending on your expectations, your diet should be low or high calorie. If you want to lose a few pounds, a calorie deficit is necessary, while if you want to build muscle tissue and exercise a lot, you need to eat enough calories so that your body has something to burn

Basic equipment to exercise at home

If you want to start exercising at home, all you need is some instructional video on YouTube and a comfortable outfit. For people who want to sculpt their physique on a more advanced level, introduce, for example, elements of crossfit or fitness, you need simple equipment. The basis for any home workout is an exercise mat, which will allow you to sit comfortably on the floor and prevent discomfort when exercising lying down. Plus, if the floor isn’t perfectly clean, you won’t get your outfit dirty on the mat

Depending on what effect you want, you need different equipment. To sculpt your abdominal muscles you’ll need a Pilates ball, for strong thighs and firm buttocks choose exercise bands, and for strong arms buy dumbbells. Rubber bands are a very versatile tool during your workout, as you can also use them to train your arms, back and for stretching

Don’t forget about self care

Taking care of your health is not just about taking care of your body. A healthy mind is just as important as a good physical condition. Small self care rituals after a workout or completely outside of physical activity are a great way to take care of yourself and lift your mood. Natural cosmetics will allow you to speed up the recovery of your body and take care of the condition of your skin. Sweat, dirt, and dust that accumulates on your face and skin throughout the day can lead to skin problems. You need to cleanse your body and face and care for them properly, moisturize, exfoliate and nourish

Such a moment for yourself combined with a home spa is the perfect opportunity to relax, listen to your favorite CD or read a book you didn’t have time for before. Sitting in the bathroom with a mask on your face is also a great opportunity for a short meditation and calming your thoughts

Taking care of yourself on the outside as well as the inside is an expression of self-love. Any opportunity to take care of your body is a good one, so ditch the excuses and start doing it at home and at a very low cost. Start making changes in your life today that will lead to better health and fitness
