Summer is coming: how to get into shape at home safely

Tips from a nutritionist, yoga trainer, and psychologist

It finally warmed up outside. You can send warm pants, sizeless sweaters, and fuzzy pajamas to the back of your closet. Summer, sun and wind, light flowing dresses, vacation at sea, or just in nature are ahead. But this winter was no exception; many gained extra pounds. And if you consider that this year, the insidious winter months had new assistants, quarantine, and remote work, which allowed us to relax in a comfortable "office on the couch" a little more than usual, it becomes even sadder.

Admit it, how many times have you promised yourself "I'll start running on Monday," "I'm going on a diet tomorrow," "I'll live without sugar for the next two months"? Mondays pass, tomorrow remains an unattainable future, and how can you go without sugar, when there's one continuous stress around? Familiar, eh?

"Shaping up" is very relevant for many since the New Year holidays. If you don't get around to it all the time and good intentions remain only plans, a couple of weeks before the holiday, you may be tempted to use express methods. The omniscient world wide web offers many charming super-effective diets and teas for weight loss. Some of them even work. Volume and weight go away at a frantic pace, but after a while, they return to us at the same speed and even bring new friends with them. Emergency weight loss is a shock to the body, a signal of the danger of prolonged starvation, so it's not surprising that after a miracle weight loss, it tries to gain even more reserves.
