We are currently in the depths of winter and while most of us want to just curl up and wait until it warms up to work on getting out bodies ready for summer the saying goes “summer bodies are made in winter.” It’s not only good to keep fit and active in winter so we keep in shape but it’s even better for our health to fight off those nasty flu’s that go around. Here at SurfStitch we believe life is all about keeping the balance between a healthy, happy and active lifestyle that keeps the balance between work and leisure ensuring you are happy on the inside and out.

The Healthy Chef: Dash To Health

BE HEALTHY

Lately, I have been trying to find healthy snacks that keep me fuller for longer but are also delicious. I took some time out on Sunday to try The Healthy Chef’s recipe for Muesli Bars and prepare snacks for the working week so I don’t reach for the vending machine when 3 o’clock comes around. The Healthy Chef also has other amazing food ideas from breakfast to dinner as well as healthy tips including how to eat seasonally.

The Healthy Chef muesli bars are not only nutritious but extremely delicious.

Dedicate a weekend to making up healthy and yummy food. Go to your local markets in comfort and pick up some fresh produce.

BE HAPPY

Happiness comes to everyone in different ways. Some find it by hanging out with the ones they love while others in the comfort of their own company. Find what makes your heart happy and dedicate a day to doing exactly what you want to do. Read inspiring quotes and books, go for a stroll along the beach or a picnic and camp out in the mountains.

Wear colourful and bright pieces by Running Bare, Oakley, Lorna Jane and Skechers to lighten up the dullest of days.

Nothing is better for your inside and out then getting off the couch and sweating it out on the pavement. Sometimes we can get tied down with our 9-5 jobs however, try to take 30 mins in the morning or afternoon to get your heart rate up. Your body and soul with thank you for it after. The first step to getting motivated is to buy some new activewear. Check out our new sports bras from Roxy, that are seamless for extra comfort!
