Change…Can Be A Good Thing!

Change.  It’s one of those things in life that’s pretty much inevitable.  Luckily, change can oftentimes be in your own control (“Today, I will only eat 1 cookie!”).  However, there are many things that will continue to transform, and there is nothing we can do about it.

One of those things?  SEASONS!

I don’t know about you, but for me, there is something extremely uplifting about a change in seasons.  A fresh start?  A new perspective, perhaps?  Whatever it is, I always feel a sense of optimism for the months to come.

It’s SPRING here in the southern hemisphere, and although I am so grateful to be skipping out in the Canadian winter temperatures this year, I definitely miss so many things about AUTUMN.

Beautiful Colours!

Fall style!

Chunky Knits

Harvest foods and recipes!

And one thing that comes with every fall season that I can still experience in Australia:

Back to a routine!

There it is…my new Aussie gym pass!

I think one of the best ways to celebrate a change in seasons is to do something new and healthy for yourself that you either: 1) haven’t done in awhile, or 2) want to experience but keep putting off.

New season?  New you!  Having just moved to a new city (err..continent), everything is very new and exciting.  However, my “something new” to kick off this season is going to be….

Prenatal Yoga!

I’ve already signed up for a class beginning this weekend!  Since finding out I was pregnant and going through a sickly first trimester, yoga has not been a part of my life.  I’m excited about trying out a new form of exercise which is the right fit for my body right now, and I believe will compliment my basic gym routine (cardio, weights, group fitness classes).  Plus, since I really haven’t met too many people yet here in Brisbane, maybe I’ll make some new preggo friends along the way!

Some ideas for changing it up in health & fitness:

– Try a new class at your gym, one that you’ve been meaning to do for awhile
– Time for a new pair of runners?  This always instills workout motivation!
– Hot yoga
– Regular yoga/pilates/prenatal yoga
– Boot camp
– Go for a hike
– Plan a weekly “walking date” with a friend
– Try an at-home fitness video
– Join a recreational sports team in your community by yourself, with a friend, or with your significant other
– Sign up for a 5k, 10k, half-marathon

Think about what might work for you.  Get on Google and spend a few minutes researching something of interest and then…just go for it!  Changing up your fitness routine, no matter how small the adjustment, will almost always be beneficial.
