1 Calm the mind.
Meditation and mindfulness is no longer something that only happens in the back of VW Kombi van parked near Byron Bay. One of the easiest ways to start is by using a guided meditation app on your phone, and one of the most popular is Calm. They’re simple, 10-minute meditations that you can do in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
2 Step up.
Wearable fitness trackers have been around for some time but used correctly, they can be like having a personal trainer on your wrist. The Whoop Strap is a newcomer here and it’s way beyond a simple pedometer. It measures your heart rate, how many calories you’ve burned and even your readiness to train and your sleep quality.
3 Weight it up.
The body mass index (BMI) is one way of tracking your weight-loss goals but can be inaccurate. When I played footy, everyone on the team would’ve been “obese” on that scale. The reason is your weight is a broad figure encompassing fat, muscle and water — and only one of those is bad. So if you use scales, buy a hi-tech set that separates those metrics for you, so you really know where you stand.
