Tips for a Healthy 2013: Tip Sheet 4

Tips for a Healthy 2013: Tip Sheet 4

4th January 2013

Hydrate while you celebrate. This is hardest in the holidays but the cheapest and easiest way to stay on track: Drink your required amount of water – 37-39 mls per kilo of bodyweight - Lee Anne Wann, Fitness specialist and sustainable change health practitioner.

Prepare yourself if you are doing an event that involves open water swimming and make sure to do a couple of your swims in the open water before the event so you won’t freak out on race day. And if you are doing all of your practice in a pool and your goal is to swim the whole 300m make sure not to stop at the end of each lap, especially if it is a 25m pool! – Shanelle Barrett, 2 times NZ Elite Triathlon Champion.

Plan ahead. Work out what you will wear for the event and try swimming, biking and running in it. Thank about the whole package from hat to bra and right down to your socks.- Shanelle Barrett, 2 times NZ Elite Triathlon Champion.

Mix socialising with exercising. With today’s busy schedules finding time to catch up with old friends can become a nightmare. Rather than choosing to either socialise or exercise try combining the two and suggest going for a walk rather than going for a drink. Alternatively, if your friends aren’t interested in non-food related get-togethers, organise a pot luck dinner with all friends at once. That way you won’t have to cook, you’ll see everyone in the same night and you might even have some left overs for lunch the next day. – Robyn Pearce CPS, International time management expert.

Build it in Find ways to build exercise into your day such as power walking to the gym rather than driving, or cycling to work. – Robyn Pearce, CPS, International time management expert.
