Top 5 Tricks to Achieve Health & Fitness Goals
you’ve probably heard this a bunch. But it’s so true. Drinking water throughout the day will ensure your body systems will keep running smoothly, and can even prevent you from overeating. The initial feelings for thirst and hunger can feel similar, and a glass of water may prevent you from grabbing for a bag of chips or an unhealthy snack. If you don’t like water, add some fruit, a splash of lemon, or even carbonation.
you need to make exercise a part of your life. I’m not saying to go buy a pair of running shoes and start jogging every morning. If you’re completely new, start with taking some walks throughout the day. If you have access to a gym, try out a class, or find an activity you enjoy. Something as simple as walking at a leisurely pace for an hour can burn close to 300 calories. Jogging can burn twice as much in the same time frame. The biggest thing is, you need to find something you enjoy or you won’t stick with it.
Hit the Sack
with all the tasks pulling at us, getting 7-9 hours of sleep is often sacrificed. If you want to maintain a healthy weight, consistent sleep should be a high priority. The more sleep you get, the better your hormones will react and the metabolism will stay consistent. If you fall short, your brain will crave unhealthy foods and snacks, seeking quick energy to keep itself going.
Meditate or Relax
staying physically fit is important. But staying mentally strong is just as, if not more important. Mind and body exercises are a great way to wind down after a long and exhausting day. A calm mind will help you sleep better, reduce anxiety, and can help prevent depression. No matter if it’s reading before bed, taking a warm bath, or listening to calming music, a calm mind will surely help.
Out of Sight
if you have unhealthy snacks or soda in your house, you need to get rid of them. If you don’t have it, you’re less likely to go out and grab them. Whereas if you have healthier alternatives, you’ll reach for those. I think it goes without saying, how this can benefit you greatly. If it’s out of sight, you won’t feel deprived of reaching for it.
Getting fit both physically and mentally will seriously be one of the best things you can do for yourself. Take the first step, and see what it can do for you. The small thing listed above will eventually start to snowball, and before you know it, you’re living the desired goal at Live Enhanced you’ve set for yourself.
