More than ever we are seeing people taking up sports, starting training, wanting to make a change to their physical health..but what is being neglected more and more is their mental health. By this I mean how people are viewing themselves and their training or fitness journey.
Training is addictive when you find what you love, you see results, you feel great, that endorphin high is so damn good..
But more and more we are seeing peoples mental approach to health change, disordered eating is on the rise, eating well becomes obsessing over calories, people are punishing themselves for enjoying a treat, panicking over taking a rest day, over training and abusing their bodies.
So take a step back, think about why you started training or wanted to change your eating habits and strip it back to basics. Eat good quality foods but still enjoy a treat, training should be for quality not quantity when you do train and listen to your body and give it the rest it needs. We all need a day off from work, your body needs a day off too!
