Our Favorite Post-Workout Snacks

Whether you work out in the morning, afternoon or evening, what you choose to eat post-workout truly makes a difference. After exercise, your body goes into recovery mode, so it’s important to choose foods full of nutrients to re-energize your muscles. Here are some snack suggestions to help you feel better and to see the results of your workouts!

Our Favorite Healthy New Year’s Resolutions

Happy 2015, y’all! Here at Wellington Group Marketing & PR, the saying, “New Year, New You” is popular because it reminds us that with the new year, comes the opportunity to make necessary changes. For each member of our team, leading a healthy lifestyle is a priority, which is why many of our New Year’s resolutions revolve around being more mindful of how we treat our bodies. Below are some of our favorite healthy New Year’s resolutions. Feel free to make them yours!

Eating Clean – Eating healthier doesn’t have to be complicated! Many times, it’s as simple as grabbing an apple rather than heading to the office vending machine. Eating clean will leave you feeling more energized and ready to tackle your work.

Work Out – Working out for fifteen minutes is better than not being active at all. When you get home from work, resist the urge to be a couch potato (we know, it’s hard) and take at least 15-30 minutes to get your body moving!

Floss Your Teeth – Don’t you just hate when your dentist asks you if you’ve been flossing?  This year, surprise them by making a resolution to incorporate flossing as part of your nightly routine.  It may seem silly, but neglecting your oral health is serious stuff! Flossing takes less than one minute, so we all have absolutely no excuse.

Get More Sleep – Set a routine and stick to it. If you get tired around 10 p.m., then hit the hay! We promise we won’t call you a granny. Getting adequate shut-eye will leave you more energized during the day and improve your mood. Who wouldn’t want that?!

Wear Sunscreen – According to National Cancer Institute, sun damage starts at an early age. This means we should be wearing sunscreen everyday, and no, not only when we are lounging by the pool. If you aren’t using a facial moisturizer with SPF, make the switch today! 

What are your resolutions this year?
