It’s time to shake yourself out of hibernation and put a spring back into your running step.  We all know it’s important to eat right, rest right and exercise right so here are R4W’s top ten tips to put a spring back in your step: 

1. Go to bed early and wake up early.

2. Go to sleep and wake up consistently at the same time – even on weekends.

3. Eat 5-6 small nutritious meals a day.

4. Always eat breakfast – it really is the most important meal of the day.

5. Eat a balanced, healthy diet. 

6. Minimise simple sugars, avoid foods containing sucrose or fructose.

7. Drink 6-8 glasses of water daily.  All drinks count but water, milk and fruit juices are best.

8. Take breaks every 90 minutes during work – get up, walk around, stretch your legs.

9. Do 30 minutes of physical activity daily – do something you love to do.

10. Do at least 2 cardio vascular workouts and 2 strength training workouts per week.
