Live The Scandi Way

Swedish fit­spo and blog­ger Faya Nils­son, AKA @fit­nes­son­toast, swears by three rules she says are the se­cret to sus­tain­able healthy liv­ing

Look (UK) - - FIT! -

Train Smart

‘As kids, we played out­doors and led a sim­ple, ac­tive ex­is­tence; ev­ery­one plays sports reg­u­larly and that runs right through to adult­hood. I pur­sue a va­ri­ety of ex­er­cise: a yoga class each week, three or four weights ses­sions and a car­dio ses­sion, plus reg­u­lar stretch­ing. I’m not aim­ing for ‘shred­ded abs’ but rather a healthy heart, a strong body and a sus­tain­able mind­set. I’m a big fan of mindfulness and deep breath­ing too. I’m not ad­vo­cat­ing hours of soul search­ing – that’s impractical. Just be aware of when you’re fail­ing to breathe prop­erly, when you’re slouched on your of­fice chair, when you’re tense. No­tice sounds and smells around you.’

Eat Well

‘In Swe­den, we en­joy thou­sands of miles of coast­line, so fresh fish is in abun­dance. given how leana source of pro­tein that is, it forms a large part of our diet. It’s nat­u­rally rich in healthy fats.’

En­joy Life

‘If we don’t en­joy our favourite foods, we can’t stay on track. I love choco­late and cake and I have some al­most ev­ery day, other­wise I quickly fall off the band­wagon. A healthy life­style means en­joy­ing sus­tain­able bal­ance; that was a key part of my up­bring­ing. Un­der­stand what you’re putting into your­self, but there’s no rea­son to de­monise things you love.’

Yes, we’d quite like this glow too, please
