New Season: New You

With summer well and truly on its way (fingers crossed) it is the perfect time to give yourself a mental and visual revamp. Here are some ideas for how to be body ready as well as happier and more productive, in time for lazy weekend barbeques and summer parties.

Happy Inside = Happy Outside

Feeling comfortable and settled in yourself it as essential to looking good as the clothes you wear. Keeping going whatever life throws at you, and using your inner strength to trust that you can conquer all is essential to this well being. Don’t expect too much from yourself, be patient and consider your actions and behavior in all aspects of your life. Can any of those areas be improved upon with some achievable goals? You will feel such a rush when you can tick something off that list, for example travel to a country you’ve always wanted to visit, take up a new hobby or even to run a marathon that you can train for and focus on throughout the summer months.

Health and Fitness

A major consideration all round but when its warm keeping fit is even more of a priority. However it is made more difficult by the magnetic pull of the pub garden. Stay dedicated and we can assure you that you will feel the benefits in your personal life and at work. It is proven that exercise results in a better quality of sleep as well as physically meaning you are healthier. If you are trying to lose weight then this is a great time to do it and reward yourself with some great new summer wardrobe items that you wouldn’t have dared to wear previously. Once you start to introduce a healthy lifestyle it becomes addictive and much less of an effort to live by. Introducing some accessible rules about drinking alcohol in the week, or the amount or exercise per week you want to do is a great place to start. The occasional chocolate bar won’t do you any harm so long as you balance it with a healthy yoghurt or vegetable snack post as well. Its all about balance.

Summer Wardrobe

There are some brilliant, versatile trends emerging for this summer that are wearable for all tastes and ages. For women, a splash of neon amongst an otherwise plain outfit brings it right up to date. Brights are also completely acceptable for men too with splashes of bright summery shades all over the catwalk and Internet. Be brave and clash where possible, surprisingly this actually works and is a real confidence boost when you eventually give it a go. Nautical is another, more classic style, that comes around in some form, every season. Navy, white and red, stripes and simple shapes are the key to hitting this look. This looks great on both the girls and the guys, so what are you waiting for….get out and buy some neon and nautical in your life!

Although brief, hopefully this will be the push you needed to kick start some improvements within your life, however tiny. There are always ways we can be better and Summer is the perfect excuse, and statistically the best time, to implement these changes. Good luck!
