If you’re having a hard time keeping up with your health goals during the weekend, you’re not alone! Let’s talk about some of the easy ways you can ensure you have a healthy weekend.
How to Stay Healthy During the Weekend
By the time the weekend rolls around, it’s admittedly hard to stick to a healthy routine. Even if you’ve been on top of things all week, sometimes it’s just too easy to transition into lazy weekend mode. While you deserve to relax a bit, you still want to stick to the practices that will make you feel good inside and out! Here are a few easy ways to have a happy and healthy weekend.
Start Your Mornings Off On the Right Foot
If you start your day off feeling healthy and energized, it will set the tone for the rest of your day! That’s exactly why we love to start our weekday and weekend mornings with a cup of Super Amazing Coffee.
Super Amazing Coffee contains a powerful blend of superfoods, including turmeric, ginger, matcha, cinnamon, and chaga. These superfoods improve brain power, stimulate metabolism, control cravings, boost mood and energy, and so much more! This makes it easier to start each day off on a healthy and motivated foot – exactly what you need for a healthy weekend!
Prefer to take your coffee with a bit of creamer? Try adding some Super Amazing Creamer for a sweet, creamy, and good-for-you cup of coffee! This creamer is sugar-free, and contains collagen, MCT oil, and hyaluronic acid to give your coffee an extra brain and beauty boost.
Schedule a Workout Class with a Friend
Having an accountability buddy makes working out so much easier – especially on weekends when it’s tempting to just be lazy! Plus, being active with a friend is way more fun than just flying solo.
Find a fun and interesting in-person or Zoom workout class, and reach out to a friend to join you. That way, you’re way less likely to flake on your weekend workout!
Most of us spend the majority of our weekdays indoors, staring at a computer screen. Your weekend finally gives you time to get outside while the sun is still out to soak in some fresh air and vitamin D!
In addition to the health benefits of vitamin D, research has shown that people who spend more time outside lead happier, more fulfilling lives. So, for the sake of your health both physically and mentally, make sure you get out! Have a healthy weekend by going for a hike or a walk, heading to the beach, or just going to the park and having a picnic with a few friends.
Seek Out Healthy Food and Drink Swaps When Eating Out
A lot of us like to spend our weekends out at restaurants and bars catching up with friends and loved ones. While these plans are obviously fun, they can also make it tricky to stick to nutritious foods.
Rather than stressing out about how these plans may derail your healthy eating habits, look for ways you can opt for better food and drink options. For example, instead of going for a cocktail packed with sugar, opt for a vodka and sparkling water with a squeeze of lime. Indulging in a burger at dinner with friends? Ask for a side salad instead of french fries.
Strike that balance so that you’re still enjoying yourself but don’t feel like you’re throwing your health out the window!
Stick to Your Sleep Schedule
If you have different sleep schedules for the weekdays and weekends, I have some bad news for you. Our bodies do best with routine when it comes to sleep, and waking up and going to bed at different times can seriously mess with our circadian rhythm.
Maintaining your normal weekday bed and wake up times through the weekend will help ensure you’re feeling energized and motivated when you get up, rather than foggy and sluggish. This will set the tone for the rest of your weekend, and inspire you to continue to make healthy choices!
