Creating Happiness in Your Life by Being Active

  “Be healthy. Be happy.” It’s what every LoveSurf girl lives by. Living a healthy lifestyle is directly connected to happiness. When you feel good about yourself, you feel your happiest. There are hundreds of ways you can create happiness in your life, but one of our favorites is living an active lifestyle. A quick surf, dip in the ocean, run outdoors or a couple sun salutations can boost your mood and make you a more joyful person. We all know fitness can do incredible things for our body, but what is often forgotten is how fitness effects our brain. Exercise is one of the keys to happiness. Working out releases chemicals called endorphins which lower stress and make you feel in a state of total elation. Using fitness to feel happier is fun and can also create opportunities to interact with others and strengthen relationships. Ready to break a sweat yet? Get outside with a friend and motivate each other to work your hardest. Happiness is all about balance. At times it may seem hard to have it all together. Try to slow down, take a deep breath and reflect on what makes you happy. Dedicate your time to these aspects of your life. Whether it be family, …

12 Rules to Live by For a Happy, Healthy Life

1. Trust in yourself. If you’ve got an idea – follow through with it with conviction. This year my own self-belief really took me that extra step further, in all aspects of my life. Believe in yourself and others will too. 2. Hard work always pays off. Sometimes it pays off just a little bit and sometimes it pays back big time – often you can’t tell which – but you can guarantee if you do things by halves, you’ll end up with what you deserve, which will be second best. 3. Sometimes it pays to be selfish. You can’t please everyone, it’s totally impossible. Sometimes you just need to pursue the goals and dreams you want in life even if other people in your life don’t approve or want something else for you. 4. I need a bigger wardrobe. Aka I should buy fewer clothes… easier said than done when you’re a self professed fashion enthusiast. I guess the answer is quality over quantity. 5. Confidence is worth more than gold and diamonds. Being part of Fashion Bloggers TV I really felt thrown into the deep end – but sometimes you gotta sink or swim! I really learn alot about myself …

How to Find The Right BPM for Your Perfect Running Playlist

Running to music can really boost your performance, but how do you choose the right playlist for your runs? The answer is in the music’s BPM, or beats per minute. This chart helps you find the right BPM to look for in a song depending on how you run. To find the ideal BPM for your running mix, run2rhythm, a site that sells running mixes, advises you perform this test: 1. Run for 15 minutes at a pace you are comfortable with 2. If you are starting out this will be slower than if you are a conditioned runner. 3. During that run count your steps for 1 minute. Do this several times to get an average. 4. Then, refer to the chart below to determine the BPM you should choose. Once you know the BPM you should be running to, you can find the right music and create the ultimate playlist to help you maintain a steady rhythm for your runs. You could also switch up the BPM playlists if you want a more intense run (166 BPM, for example) or an easier jog (150 BPM).

LoveSurf Girl: Chelsea Cruz

    Bio: My name is Chelsea Cruz and I am an energetic and passionate personal trainer, writer, speaker, dancer and sports model. Before I moved to Orange County and became such an ambitious fitness freak, I was living in San Diego, CA where I grew up with a love for the ocean, dance and the outdoors! If I wasn’t surfing, swimming, camping, hiking, or playing beach volleyball, you could find me at dance practice or working out at the gym. Of course I found these activities fun and enjoyable, but the best and most rewarding aspect of living such an active lifestyle was how these activities challenged me to become a stronger, more courageous, and more beautiful person from the inside out. In life we all face adversity. What I have found to be true in my own experience is that the hardest part of encountering adversity is not the struggle itself… The hardest part is facing the fears and weaknesses the struggle reveals in you and then applying to your life the truth and lessons it was meant to teach you. Surfing, swimming, kayaking, and SUP boarding in the open ocean have been a great example to me of …

Fitness Tip: Running Shoe Lacing Techniques

When most runners purchase their running shoes from a specialty running store they are usually already cross-laced and ready to go. Or are they? Did you know there are different ways that you can lace your shoes to make them more comfortable or to help customize your shoes for your feet? Here are some of the more common shoe lacing patterns that help combat some common shoe issues.  First, let’s cover the LOOP LACING LOCK. This technique can be used in a number of different lacing patterns to insure a tight and snug fit anywhere along the eye row of your shoe, depending on where your laces seem to be slipping. In this example, the loop lacing lock is at the top of the shoe. The shoe was cross-laced as usual to the top of the shoe. To accomplish the loop lacing lock, put each lace end back into the same hole it just exited, leaving a small loop on each side. Then thread each loose end through the loop on the opposite side of the shoe. Pull tight to make loops smaller. Then tie shoe as usual. PROBLEM: High Instep Near the toe of the shoe, start lacing with the cross-lacing technique. Once …

Fit Tip: Are you addicted to Indoor Workouts? Try these Outdoor Alternatives Instead…

Do you have an indoor gym addiction? Choose an outdoor alternative instead! And grab a friend or take your dog, because having a buddy to work out with makes you 30% more likely to stick to your routine. It also saves you money. Here are 5 great outdoor workouts to try: 1. Indoor Addiction: Treadmill    Outdoor Alternative: Intervals Warm up by walking at a moderate pace for about five minutes. Then, to really get your blood flowing, add in intervals by alternating two minutes of vigorous walking with a one-minute recovery stroll. If you don’t have a heart rate monitor, use the “talk test” to determine how fast you should be going: At peak effort, you shouldn’t be able to carry on a conversation. Repeat the intervals as many times as you can. Wear: LoveSurf Running Wear 2. Indoor Addiction: Lap Swimming    Outdoor Alternative: Open Water Swimming Sick of getting stuck behind a slow stroker in a pool the size of a bathtub? Leave your lane assignment and that awful stench of chlorine behind and head for the nearest lake, ocean or river. You’ll still burn more than 400 calories an hour, but will also get the added benefit of extra space and peace and quiet. Miss …
