Many of us try to stay healthy by eating right and exercising when we can. Although most of us don’t think of ourselves in the same league with Olympic athletes, maybe we should! We put together some advice from Olympic athletes and created a list of health and wellness tips that anyone can follow to have a happy and healthy life!
Having friends and training partners to motivate you are really important for those days when you’re not “feeling it.” Having a support system of friends and family (or even your kids) can make a tough workout, or even a brisk walk, more enjoyable.
A lot of Olympians recommend getting up early and kicking off the day with exercise. Even just 20 minutes of getting your body moving will perk up your mind and your mood.
Having a varied training or exercise program will keep you interested in your workouts so you don’t get bored and give up. Variety also makes you less likely to get injured doing repetitive movements.
Common advice to health and wellness is getting enough sleep, eating a balanced diet, and simply getting off the couch and getting out there!
While we understand that Olympic athletes have a workout regimen most people can’t handle and don’t have time for, learning from how they train can be beneficial for anyone looking to get healthier.
