As January has come to and end the majority of all new year’s resolutions have failed and been forgotten, and research tells us most people give up on day 13. But March is almost on our doorstep and it’s a common saying: ‘fit summer bodies are made in winter’. This doesn’t only mean having a fit body but being psychologically fit as well. We, at STOX will do anything to help you reach that goal, like with our most beloved STOX running socks. Thanks to the laboratorial compression technique the blood circulation in the legs and body is optimized, giving you more energy to run longer distances, with fewer injuries and less recovery time.
Did you know that when you openly share your good year’s resolutions before actually committing to them, chances are they will fail? The reason is that you find yourself receiving gratification from your surroundings for your positive attitude. This will diminish subsequent rewarding feelings when actually trying to commit to your goals. There goes your fit body!
Yet as winter unfolds and the rain and cold continues the threat of catching the winter blues is just around the corner. We start to feel on edge, perceive more stress, which in turn can dramatically increase our cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone linked to a faster aging process, exhaustion, increased deprivation of muscle tissue, insomnia and even obesity. Moreover, overexertion and low energy levels diminish the capacity to self control (and so, there goes all your good will).
How can we stay fit then? It often seems so easy! On the one hand we must eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, refrain from using alcohol and get enough sleep. On the other, to stay mentally fit it’s recommended to take time off and to do the things you enjoy, as well as taking time to relax.
