Health, Wellness and Collagen

Do you have an active lifestyle and are looking to improve your fitness while achieving optimal health? Look no further: sport and nutrition are the pillars of your well-being...and collagen is the cement!

Collagen is a protein found in our body that plays a crucial role in our overall health, especially when it comes to sports and exercise. It is responsible for maintaining healthy joints, tendons, and ligaments, as well as supporting muscle growth and recovery. Incorporating collagen into your diet can help you achieve your fitness goals and support a healthy lifestyle.

So how can you incorporate collagen into your wellness and fitness routine? Let's explore this by taking the principles of the book "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey.

1. Be proactive

Take control of your wellness journey by incorporating collagen into your daily routine. It could be adding powder to your coffee in the morning, drinking collagen water after training, or eating a bar ! Try as much as possible to be preventive rather than curative.

2. Start with the end in mind

Set clear, specific and measurable goals that are aligned with your overall health goals. What everyday problem do you want to see disappear eventually? Setting attainable goals can help you stay focused and motivated on the path to results. For me, it's about getting rid of knee tendinopathy (windshield wiper syndrome) that I've had for 10 years. So far, I've only focused on living with it. If consuming collagen allows me to avoid pain on a daily basis, I feel that it is always present. I never took the time to stretch and mobilize my tendon to see it completely disappear. The end goal must be to heal.

3. Prioritize

Between work, parenthood and other obligations, exercise and nutrition are often relegated to "when I have time"...either rarely or never. Prioritize your workouts and nutrition by scheduling regular exercise sessions and making sure you're nourishing your body with the right nutrients, including collagen. These moments must be blocked in your agenda and must not be postponed. This will help you maintain consistency and get better results.

4. Think win-win

Surround yourself with like-minded people who support your journey and understand the benefits of this lifestyle. Joining a sports community or teaming up with a training partner can create a positive and supportive environment, which can improve your motivation. That's what we're trying to do with Humble+.

5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood

Educate yourself on the benefits of an active lifestyle, the benefits of collagen, and how it can support your fitness journey. Don't hesitate to talk to your doctor, physiotherapist or friends about the benefits and challenge their response.

6. Synergies

Transform each activity into a useful moment for your well-being. Are you reading a book? Perfect, take the opportunity to read a chapter while stretching! Are you baking a cake? Perfect treat yourself and incorporate more collagen in it.

7. Sharpen the saw

Evaluate your routine regularly to identify areas for improvement and avoid plateaus. By incorporating these principles and collagen into your wellness journey, you will be well on your way to achieving your health and fitness goals.

So why not take the first step today? Add collagen after your next workout and see how it can transform your fitness journey.
