It’s important to stay hydrated. In the winter it's especially important to boost your immune system, regulate you body temperature, and help combat dry skin in those cold temperatures. Tips to Drink More Water: 1. Heat it up! Drink warm lemon water first thing in the morning to cleanse your system and start your day refreshed. 2. Drink enough! Your body needs half of your body weight in ounces each day. If a person weighs 140 lbs then they should aim for at least 70 ounces of water per day. 3. Add flavor! Not excited by plain water? Add lemon, lime, berries, or fresh herbs like basil or mint to add some natural flavor! 4. Bring it with you! Keep a water bottle with you to enough you are drinking enough throughout the day.

Winter Stretching❄️ - stretching is important to incorporate year-round. It increases flexibility and range of motion with the goal of decreasing the risk of injury. It's especially important to include stretching into your workout routine in the cold winter months. When our muscles are cold they want to contract to save heat. This contraction makes them tighter and thus more prone to injury. ☃️TIPS: 1. Always warm up - get your heart rate up with some light aerobics (brisk walk or jog) and dynamic stretches (see below) 2. Winter is a great time for dynamic stretching. Short repetitive movements (versus holding a muscle in a stretch) will keep those muscles warm and moving. Try lunges, push ups, or arm circles! 3. Keep your body moving - if you're participating in an outdoor activity make sure to keep moving. During down periods do some lunges, squats, or arm circles to keep your body warm. 4. Always cool down - to prevent muscles from tightening up!
May all your goals turn into reality and your efforts into great achievements🎇 #2018
