Pro Tips from Team LVL

As temperatures drop and leaves change color it's easy to slip into seasonal hibernation. We get it. Who doesn’t like big comfy sweaters, hot drinks by the fireplace, and months of rest? Unfortunately, extended periods of dormancy and indulgences aren’t great for the body. Luckily for you, tough love and motivation are part of the culture at Team LVL. We're here to help you stay active and skirt hibernation this upcoming holiday season.

Realistic Goal Setting

Your health and wellness journey should start with realistic goal setting. It’s important to keep in mind that “realistic goals” will vary based on the calendar and life events often out of your control. With that in mind, acknowledge your busy schedule and set goals accordingly. Keep a journal to track your progress and remember that maintenance is necessary and small steps lead to big improvements.

Consistency is Key

Consistency is the foundation for any fitness or wellness regimen and we like to take a "something every day" approach. Ten minutes of activity, even just walking, stretching, or practicing mindfulness, helps build habits for success. When the routine of physical and mental self care is cemented into your daily schedule you establish a baseline to build on. As progress is made your daily minimum becomes easier to achieve and you’ll find yourself doing more and more. 

A consistent sleep routine is also essential in supporting a healthy lifestyle, as it helps regulate your circadian rhythm and can improve sleep quality. This often leads to increased alertness and productivity, and may even improve mood and emotional well-being. Good “sleep hygiene” is also linked to various health benefits including stronger immune defense, improved cardiovascular health, and reduced risk of chronic health conditions. If you have trouble sleeping, check out our LVL Z Restful Sleep Gummies, formulated with CBD, Melatonin, and Lemon Balm to help you slumber soundly so your body can recover fully.

Weekly Workout Planning

Planning weekly workouts is extremely helpful in maintaining consistency, especially during the busy holiday season. We’ve found that apps and wearables can help by tracking workouts and progress. If that’s not your thing, a good old fashioned calendar will suffice! Just make sure to set workout times and stick to them. Treat these calendar blocks the same way you'd treat a work meeting or doctor’s appointment.

Moderation is also Key

We believe that moderation is a good approach to most things in life. If a workout program or diet isn’t sustainable it won’t do you any good in the long run. With that in mind, make sure to take time for friends, family, and yourself this upcoming holiday season. Enjoy your favorite holiday dishes, but remember that moderation is key. A little self-control goes a long way. Leave the extreme indulgence to Bill Swerski's Super Fans this Thanksgiving.

Stay Hydrated

Adequate hydration is a critical cornerstone for daily health and athletic performance. Make sure you're drinking enough water every day. This can get difficult over the busy holiday season, so make it a habit to carry a water bottle with you at all times. 

Keep Hydrating

Seriously, keep hydrating – this one’s important. Adequate hydration supports muscle recovery and injury prevention. Our daily water intake baseline is a half gallon per day, although we like to get to one full gallon. If you’re doing high intensity workouts, consider using electrolyte-rich supplements to replenish essential minerals lost during activity.

Active Fall Activities

Embrace the beauty of fall with outdoor events and activities. Whether it's a competitive backyard game of football, the local turkey trot, or a scenic seasonal hike, stay active and enjoy the crisp autumn air. Embrace the fall as a reminder that while change is inevitable, progress is always the goal.
