Living and maintaining a healthy life is not easy as it seems that is why most of us fail at it. However, it not that hard, there are some tips and tricks that can help you ease in with healthy life and workout goals. In order to achieve and make big goals for life, you have to start small, working on small changes leads you to big ones. For instance, if you want to complete a novel you have to start with the first page and keep on it; little by little every day. Now when you wear your workout clothes, go to the gym, eat or even go to the office just keep these in mind and by the end, everything will be good.
Start off healthy
Breakfast is the thing that will give you energy until lunchtime so it is very important. Low on nutrient, unhealthy, and skipping breakfast won’t do you any good. Drinks like protein shakes are also a great post-breakfast option if you’re exercising right after for a boost. In fact, it either compels you to eat unhealthily or the body starts doing muscle degeneration. In fact, it either compels you to eat unhealthily or the body starts doing muscle degeneration which is a slippery slope you don’t even want to go near it. Oats, eggs, and fruits at breakfast are good. You can eat any other healthy stuff you want depending on your fitness goal.
Switch to black coffee
Are you a coffee person too? Do you daily drink some fancy coffee like Cappuccino, Frappuccino, etc.? Stop yourself right now, these fancy coffees contain a lot of sugar and unhealthy calories. If coffee is must we recommend switching to black coffee. You can even put some protein powder or fat burner powder and enjoy the energy boost.
Burn calories efficiently
Walking is healthier than using elevators, it burns more calories and keeps your joints in good condition. Parking the car or getting off your bus or train a block away from the office and then walking and using stairs more are simple things you can easily do. This helps to burr some calories without you even noticing.
If you are trying to lose fat and running for it then we have a better option. Does running and sweating more mean you are burning more calories? No, unfortunately, that is not the case. HIIT workouts are a better option just try those.
Count Your Steps
Keeping a log of how much you have burned helps with the fitness goals. These days mobile apps could do the magic for you. A daily recommended count is 10,000 steps daily, but don’t have to do that in the first go. Don’t worry if you cannot do that today, slowly build up to that and do not give up. Morning dog walks, evening romantic walks, jogging with a friend, or just having some me-time are a few useful ideas.
Log your calorie
Keeping track of calories burned and eaten in a day. It can be a little frustrating so you don’t have to keep track of every single grain. With time you will ease into it. Knowing of your intake and calories burned will help you adjust your diet especially if you are losing weight or fat. One of the advantages is you notice the unhealthy choices you were making imperceptibly and adjust them accordingly. Buy a measuring scale-like cups and spoons is a lot of help.
Carbonated drinks are your enemy. Keep in drinking them is your loss resulting in gaining lots of fat. This is not something you would want to gain as it is a source of many health problems. Once in a while is acceptable but daily intake is an addiction I would say. Try sparkling water if carbonated drinks are a must and you’d die without them. Get rid of them and you will notice how the jogger pants, shorts, and jeans start feeling loose.
Keep a sleep routine, a healthy one. Some people can sleep at any time of the day and get fresh while others need to have a regular and focused sleep routine. The human body is built like that. Little disturbance in the plan is nothing to worry about though. Sleeping is very important, as this is the best time when the body is recovering and charging itself. Getting accustomed to the new routine takes some time.
Using phone in the bed
If you can put your phone down when you want, then believe me you are blessed with special powers. Scrolling the phone, especially when in the bed can take so much of your important time without you even noticing. The next thing you know is clock went way past the time you should be asleep at. 6 to 8 hours of quality sleep is a must.
This is common among people trying to lose weight. Strengthening core and muscles are also vital as losing weight. Core and muscle-strengthening workouts like kneeling extension, hip lifts. crunches, planks, bench press, squats, deadlifts, resistance bands, and climbing stairs are a few examples.
A healthy mind results in a healthy body, meditation helps in keeping the mind calm and peaceful which helps in burning fat and gaining muscle. If you don’t believe just try it and you can thank us later. There are a lot of other methods like playing sports, or attend dance classes, doing what you like or spending some time with friends, not online though.
