Did you make a new year’s resolution to get healthier or in better shape this year? Well done if you’ve been sticking to it, you certainly deserve to reward yourself for all your hard work. But how can you treat yourself without undoing all that work? Getting healthy means breaking the habits that were making you unhealthy to begin with so going back to them, whether it’s a few too many glasses of wine, a box of chocolates, or a takeaway, isn’t ideal. Here are a few healthy ways to treat yourself instead!
Get out in nature
One of the main reasons people are put off from going on walks or hikes is the belief that it will be too hard. Well, now that you’re getting into shape, you don’t need to fear that anymore! The weather is warming up, get out on a walk and embrace nature. Start small with a short walk near your home, and before long you’ll be looking forward to big hikes out in the countryside!
Get your nails done
No extra calories, no syns, no units of alcohol… getting your nails done is the perfect way to celebrate making healthy changes to your body!
Go for a wine tasting
Unless you’ve decided to go 100% teetotal forever, you’ll still be having the odd tipple here and there. Why not do it right, and go to a wine tasting evening so that you can develop your palette and learn to enjoy wine on a deeper level? Many health experts say that the key to staying in good shape is to still have the things you like, but to have extremely high-quality versions of those things, which leads to you feeling more quickly satisfied by them.
Give your body a treat
As you get healthier and more in shape, your body is obviously going to start to change. However, weight loss can leave behind some unexpected effects, such as skin laxity and sagginess. Losing weight also doesn’t always get rid of cellulite, which can be disappointing for a lot of people who are looking forward to toned, smooth skin that they can show off. If this is the case for you, treat yourself to a course of SkinBase Radio Frequency or Collagen Lift.
You can have this treatment on your face and your body, and it works by stimulating your skin’s natural collagen and hyaluronic acid production to tighten, firm and smooth your skin. You don’t have to go to such lengths as surgical procedures or injections to get toned skin any longer! Radio Frequency is non-invasive and starts to work right away, plus, you’ll continue to see improvements for up to three months afterwards, with the final results lasting for up to two years. It’s the perfect way to reward yourself for all your hard work, but also a great way to encourage you not to give up on your new healthy lifestyle.
Buy yourself a new accessory
Whether it’s a pair of shoes or a handbag, or something more inexpensive like a bracelet or scarf, getting something new like this is a great way to treat yourself when you’re losing weight – unlike buying new clothes, it means you have something new to wear that will make you feel fabulous, but you won’t have to stop wearing it when it becomes too big!
