Start a hobby that you’ve always wanted to learn. Whether it be a new fitness class, or something non-fitness related, starting a new hobby is proven to help increase your self-esteem.
Laugh. Laughing speeds up your metabolism, and lifts your mood!
Spend time with like-minded individuals. It's great to surround yourself with people who have common interests. This will make you feel supported in things that you're interested in.
Remind yourself what you’re thankful for. It's sometimes easier to think of what is wrong in life instead of what you're grateful for. Remind yourself what makes you thankful every single day.
Practice being grateful for your body. Your body can do amazing things, even if you’re not where you want to be when it comes to your fitness goals, be thankful for where you are and what your body can do.
Let go of your inner perfectionist. Being too hard on yourself will get you nowhere. Work hard towards your goals, but if you accidentally take a step backwards it'll be okay.
Make time for yourself. Treat yourself to some time doing what you love each and every week.
Be kind to yourself. Along with being kind to others, be kind to yourself.
Let go of judgement. Judging others, especially at the gym when they're working on themselves doesn't help anyone. Live a judgement-free life.

It’s so easy to stray from your health routine while traveling. Temptations are everywhere. They start at the airport. You grab a mocha or a burger before you board, thinking they will tide you over until you arrive. Harmless enough, right? Not really. Air travel in itself is a stress on your system. Add in greasy food or sugary drinks and you’re putting yourself behind the eight ball. Next thing you know you’re feeling ill. Happens all the time. But it doesn’t have to. Follow these six tips next time you hit the road and prepare for smooth sailing.
Snack Smarter. Bring healthy snacks with you. You can’t go wrong with anti-inflammatory snacks, such as walnuts and almonds. They are a great option because they’re loaded with healthy fats, which will help you feel full, and filled with valuable nutrients.
Stay Hydrated. Staying hydrated is crucial when traveling. Start before you go. Try starting your travel day with a green smoothie and then sip on coconut water throughout the day. You’ll be surprised by how much of a difference swapping out a cup of coffee for water makes in your health and energy.
Keep Up With Your Vitamins and Supplements. If vitamins and supplements are part of your daily routine, make sure to pack them. Consider adding an extra dose of Vitamin C to boost your immunity system.
Stick To Your Diet (Mostly). Even though you’re on vacation, you still want to be mindful of your diet. Avoid fast food chains at all costs. If greasy fries hurt your stomach at home, they will on vacation. Make exceptions of course. Go ahead and sample local cuisines. But make sure you include greens and don’t overdo it.
Do Something Active At Your Destination. Plan it out before you travel. Pick something unique about the area and design a workout around it — running on the beach, cross-country skiing, mountain-climbing. Burn some calories while being a tourist.
Find a Snap Fitness! We have more than 2,000 locations around the world so chances are good you can find us. Scope it out before you travel. We’re open 24-7. Nothing feels better and more like home than a workout at Snap Fitness.
