Being Your Active Self: How You Can Do It



Let’s be honest, it isn’t easy being active each day. We all know that it is so much better for us to have some form of healthy and active lifestyle, not over indulging too much with the junk or sugary foods, exercising a few times a week and generally taking good care of ourselves. However, it can be quite difficult to maintain this sort of lifestyle and with the recent holiday period now in the past, it is fair to say that many of us will be feeling less than our best when it comes to our energy levels and our waistlines. Which is why I thought I would share with you some of the top tips to help you become more active generally on a day to day basis. I hope it inspires you to become your best active self.

Setting Realistic Targets
Now is the time when many people set themselves targets for losing weight or getting more fit, partially because they may have set themselves a goal as part of the new year resolutions. It is also just as important to set yourself realistic targets to help you achieve that ultimate goal. You won’t lose a lot of weight over night, and you certainly won’t go from running nothing to a marathon within a week. You can set smaller obtainable goals for yourself, that will not only help you stay on track, but also keep you motivated to succeed in the long term. Resolutions should always be for long term gain, not short term failings. So ensure you keep everything in mind when you embark on the active lifestyle. Start off small, maybe walking somewhere instead of driving or choosing to be more active each day. You can slowly build this up over time.

Being Active Doesn’t Mean Daily Gym Sessions
Many people associate being more active with heading to the gym, but the truth is, gym sessions aren't for everyone. Some people feel motivated and pumped up in a gym environment, others can feel overwhelmed. So find something that works for you. Walking your dog, going for a run locally, or joining local fitness sessions within the community can all be great ways to stay active and increase your fitness levels without the worry or pressure of going to a gym.

Having the Right Gear and Equipment
It is all well and fine having the best intentions to make a your fitness dreams become a reality, but if you don’t have the right gear and equipment to help you do it, the journey can end as quick as it started. Therefore, you must invest in the right activewear and equipment to help you succeed. From the right running shoes to protect from injury to custom baseball uniforms to help you or others feel part of the team, make sure you do yourself a favour and invest in the right things first time. Not only does the right gear help you feel good, but it can also help you succeed and keep you safe from injury.

I hope that these ideas help you get more active in the new year.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
