Taking Care of Yourself: It’s More Important Now Than Ever

You’ve probably heard it before but we’re here to tell you again. Taking care of yourself and focusing on your health is more important now than ever. Here at StarCycle we believe that putting extra focus into taking care of yourself will lead to a stronger body, a stronger mind, and a stronger heart. 

Here are 3 tips and tricks from the team at StarCycle to help take care of yourself:

Set goals for yourself. It doesn’t matter the size of the goal, as long as you’re realistic and think it’s achievable. These can be daily and/or weekly goals. Some ideas may be to drink a certain amount of water, get to bed by a certain time, wake up 10 minutes earlier than normal, or go on a daily walk. Make sure to celebrate each goal! Remember it takes 30 days to form a habit, so stay committed. 

Surround yourself with people who build you up. Make a point to see your best friend, your family, or your favorite coworker. Maybe even show up to your cycling class 10 minutes earlier than usual to spend more time enjoying the positive energy you feel from everyone in the studio and lobby. Don’t underestimate the like minded people next to you at an exercise studio like StarCycle and just how much they will build you up. 

Move your body. Exercise and movement really don’t need to be that complicated. Walks, runs, yoga, stretching in your room are all great ways to get daily movement in your routine. If you’re like many people who need the group fitness environment, sign up for a StarCycle class. The hardest part is getting in the car and walking through the door. Once you’re there, it always feels worth it. The motto at StarCycle is “Clip In, Check Out, Let’s Ride.” It doesn’t matter how fast your legs spin, just that you showed up to take care of yourself and get 45 minutes to focus on you. Sounds like a good deal to us!
