Your wedding is undoubtedly a joyful event, but it is associated with a lot of organizational chores and the intensity of emotions that can lead you crazy on this important day for you. And although you are not able to control everything that happens during a wedding ceremony, everything that can go wrong. Instead of trying unhealthy destructive diets that focus on short-term weight loss, try to get yourself in good habits – they will help you cope with stress and look your best. Lead an active lifestyle, eat healthy foods, and avoid unhealthy diets, and you can improve your mood, build up lean muscle mass, and even make your hair shine and skin look better for your wedding day.
Start in advance
Whatever your goals regarding the wedding are, you need to start working on their implementation three to six months before the appointed date. If you enter a healthy, stable regimen well in advance, it will not only bring better results on the day of the wedding but will also increase the chances that you will continue to make the right healthy choice after the wedding.
Decide which parts of the body you want to work especially carefully
You should not think of body parts as “problem areas” that should be fixed, but you can identify those body parts or health problems that need to be worked on before taking wedding photos. For example, maybe now you are suffering from eczema, which should be cured, or you have dry nails, and they need to be restored, or weak-looking arms that would be nice to get in shape.
And if you are still single, just looking for some tips on how to prepare for such an event, then here’s an article about relationship goals for singles.
Identify your main sources of stress
To stay in good psychological shape and maintain concentration in the days before the wedding, you should take the time to evaluate and determine which people, activities, or problems bring you the most anxiety. Knowing who and what is draining you psychologically and emotionally will allow you to take this factor into account when planning your fitness regimen.
For example, if you understand that your parents and parents of your soulmate always increase your stress level, include stress relief exercises in your daily schedule – yoga or jogging – if you plan on trying on dresses or other general activities with these family members.
Include regular aerobic exercise in your routine
At least 150 minutes of aerobic exercise – that is, an activity that boosts your heart rate and lasts at least 10 minutes – will help ease your stress from feverish wedding planning and boost your mood. It will also help you achieve endurance goals, as well as reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Combine social and physical activities
Most likely, you meet and talk to many people on the eve of the wedding day, so you may think that there is not much time left for training. At the same time, remember that time for social life and exercises do not have to be shared! Of course, it will be difficult to confer with the tailor while running or performing lunges, but you can make up for time with your friends during a walk together or some jogging.
Sign up for a dance lesson with your soulmate
Choreographic classes have the same physical and psychological advantages as single training, but they will also improve your skills and increase your self-confidence before the celebration. Friends and relatives at the wedding will be impressed by your new smooth moves, as well as stamina, and dexterity!
Spend less time on sedentary activities
On the one hand, a sedentary lifestyle is associated with an increased risk of cancer, diabetes, and obesity. On the other hand, watching your favourite TV show or video game will help you relax after a long day filled with meetings with florists and wedding service companies. So, you should not try to completely exclude such activities. Just limit your daily doses of such sedentary activities to maintain maximum activity on the days before the wedding.
Forget about radical diets
Many pre-wedding fitness plans focus on radical weight loss with strict diets but do not fall for such destructive measures that will bring only a short-term result. Strict restrictive diets not only lead to weight fluctuations – and it is more likely that all lost weight will return to you after the wedding – but they can also cause compulsive overeating and other eating disorders.
