We can make resolutions and plaster them everywhere as reminders. But if they don’t resonate — they won’t stick.
The new year brings about new hopes for lifestyles we strive for. That’s a positive thing! The trick is keeping them alive through Valentine’s Day.
Here are 5 ideas for maintaining a healthy lifestyle in Myrtle Beach!
1. Stick to your fitness routine
You’ve kept faithful to the gym or track. Don’t quit when you take a weekend getaway! Brittain Resorts & Hotels properties have the latest fitness equipment on site. If you’re here in the offseason, take a run outside.
Try this: Adjust your expectations. Even if you do about half of what you’d do at home, you’re ahead of the game!
2. Be mindful of what you eat
Nutrition is such a huge component of a healthier lifestyle. Consult your doctor for specifics about what is right for you. There should be a balance between calorie intake and activity. Eating or drinking more calories than you need will result in weight gain; too little, and you’ll lose weight. Aim for a variety of foods to help you get the most nutrients.
Try this: Start your day with a breakfast burrito (add avocado!) at Kindbelly Cafe. Visit Bay Naturals’ healthy market for good-for-you juices, smoothies, and snacks. Healthy eating isn’t too tough in Myrtle Beach.
3. Head outdoors
You’re treated to mild temperatures and Carolina sun on the Grand Strand. Motor around on the beach outside your resort. Caribbean Resort, for instance, is steps from the shore. (Pick your pace. A stroll, a power walk, a good jog …) Get your steps in as you shop the Tanger Outlets, or take a hike at Myrtle Beach State Park.
Try this: If you’re moving outside on a chilly day, keep moving to stay warm. Take short breaks from a run or walk. Reward yourself with a relaxing shower and comfy clothes afterward at the resort.
4. Focus on health
Heartrate and caloric intake are not the only parts of your wellbeing. If the past year has been stressful, take account of emotional and mental health, too. Consult your physician on this, but seeking help for mental health is a good move, too. Physical exercise and attention to emotional health can be beneficial, too.
Try this: Discover a passion. If you’re an occasional golfer back home, book a tee time at Grand Dunes when you visit next. Playing on exceptional courses here might ignite something new for you.
5. Be adventurous
There’s more than one way to get your fit on while on vacation. Slow your pace but get your steps in by hitting the riverwalk in Conway. Accept a family challenge at Top Golf or 810 Billiards & Bowling. Visit Shanti Yoga Studio for an exceptional experience and expert instruction. Or find a spot on the beach and meditate on the sounds of ocean waves crashing. There are opportunities to fit in fitness everywhere. Even in playing with your kids in the indoor pool deck at Caribbean Resort. (Reward yourself with a trip to the hot tub after!)
Try this: Diversify your workouts! Rent a bike, visit beautiful locations, and take a walk to nearby destinations. Keep moving where you’re happy!
