8 hours a night can often be hard to accomplish

The nation has become engrossed by the world of sport over the past few months. The passion, dedication, fitness and general health of these young athletes have inspired many Britons to improve their own health and well being. Follow these simple tips to a healthier existence.

1.    Exercise

It may seem an obvious one but many Britons will complain about their weight or general health but never even consider exercise as a way of combating these burdens. Exercise is a great way to shift those extra pounds, meet new people and increase your mood levels.

2.    A Great Night’s Sleep

Whether you’re training like a sporting professional or just exhausted from the day to day pressures of life, a good night’s sleep can help to repair any tired muscles and refresh your mind for the next day. The advisory 8 hours a night can often be hard to accomplish but with the addition of blackout blinds such as these for your bedroom you can at least help to reduce the amount of light glaring into your room. Dunelm offers a wonderful selection of roller and blackout blinds.

3.    Eat Healthily

You wouldn’t catch a top athlete sneaking a cheeky chocolate biscuit with his mid afternoon tea so you shouldn’t either. Leading a healthy lifestyle includes watching how many calories you consume and ensuring that you get your 5 a day!

4.    Join a Club

There are many sports clubs around the country that will accept members of all abilities. Team sports are a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and of course help to keep your body in tip top shape!

5.    Look the part!

Everyone has more confidence if they are happy with how they look. Invest in some new sportswear that will give you that extra bit of encouragement to get out there and start living your healthy lifestyle.
