Make a mental list of obstacles that stand in your way then decide what you can do about each one. For instance, if it’s a weakness for takeaways that hinders your weight loss, start planning your weekly meals and shopping to ensure that you always have easy access to healthy alternatives.
By designing a plan to reduce the influence of each obstacle, you will increase the chance that you’ll be successful.
HEALTH: Feeling worn out? The cure for poor sleep and daytime fatigue can often be found in your daily routine, your eating habits, bedtime schedule and day–to–day lifestyle choices make an enormous difference in the quality of your nightly rest.
EXERCISE: Exercising regularly can help you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly – but only if it's done at the right time. Physical activity stimulates the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which helps activate the alerting mechanism in the brain and can keep you feeling wide awake for several hours afterwards. Always try to finish exercising at least three hours before bed, or work out a bit earlier in the day.
NUTRITION: The stimulating effects of caffeine-based products - such as coffee, tea, cola and chocolate - can wreak havoc with quality sleep. Caffeine suppresses the hormone melatonin (which helps us relax and prepare for sleep) for up to 10 hours. It also promotes the supply of adrenaline (which keeps us alert during the day). Caffeinated drinks should therefore be avoided in the hours before bedtime in order to ensure you get a good night’s sleep. Info collected from experts in fitness and Gym
