Sarah Maxwell explores Pick‘n’Mix fitness

If you struggle to maintain a regular exercise routine, feel bored with your current fitness schedule, or have a hard time fitting exercise, healthy eating, stress reduction and proper hydration into your busy life, then you should consider trying the Pick‘n’Mix method. This approach may interest you, especially if you remember the fun sweetie experience at Woolworths!

The Pick‘n’Mix method is a flexible and customisable way to incorporate exercise and other essentials into your daily routine, regardless of age or fitness level. You can choose from various activities and tailor your routine based on your preferences and schedule.

Pick‘n’Mix includes activities you can select based on your fitness level and interests. Whether it’s a quick workout at home, meditating, a walk during lunch break or a yoga session in the evening – you can choose what works best for you. It’s perfect if you’re feeling tired of your current fitness routine and want to try something new, and is a great way to shake things up for a few weeks and return more potent than ever.

Reducing stress is an essential part of the method – you can choose from relaxation techniques like meditation and deep breathing exercises. A focus on self-care is another reason this method is so successful. Eating well, staying hydrated, and making time for rest and creativity can all be easily incorporated into your routine with some planning.

Top Tip: If you put your choices and schedule into your diary or planner, you will find it much easier to get into a good routine.
