When you are healthy, every other aspect of your life is much more enjoyable for you and those around you. Among all of your to do list, health should be your priority.
But often time, when I talk to people about making their health a priority, many of them say the same thing, “I just don’t have the time.” Really? You have the time to sit in front of your computer and surf the net, you have the time to chitchat with your friends, you also have the time to watch your favorite TV program and etc. For me, it looks like you have plenty of time, the problem is you divide your time incorrectly.
You think I am preaching? No, not at all, I just want to see everyone succeed at losing unnecessary weight and adopting a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle.
To help you unlock the door to a healthy life and live it to the fullest. I have compiled a few tips to get you get started on the path of success.
Tip 1: Get Your Body Moving
Exercise doesn’t always have to occur in a gym or on a treadmill. You can really exercise anywhere at any time of day. Such as use your lunch break to take a walk or run up and down the stairs. If you are a dog lover, you can take your dog for a brisk walk a few times a day. Whatever you can do to fit in some heart pumping activities, take it. And then you will have more energy to get through the rest of the day.
Tip 2: Gauge Your Food Intake
For a lot of people, social eating is the way of their world. No matter it is for a neighborhood gathering, or a company picnic, or at their kid’s birthday party, eating in social situations is very common, which also caused overeating issues.
So try to always be conscious of what you’re putting in your mouth, how much you’re putting in your mouth, and when you are truly hungry or are just bored. Keep a diary is a great way to keep track of your food intake. By doing this, you can see what you have eaten, the times you ate, and the quality of food you consumed. Once it is down in black and white, you can better gauge where you need to make changes.
Tip 3: Water, Water and More Water!
There should be no other beverage passing through your lips other than water. Coffee and soda can severely dehydrate you or that diet soda actually makes you crave sugar. Even pseudo healthy drinks such as orange or apple juice contain enormous amounts of sugar – nearly ten teaspoons per serving! This is crazy!
The only healthy beverage that can truly quench your thirst is water. If you’re not sure how much to drink, you can do this – take your weight and drink half that much water in ounces per day. So, if you weigh 200 pounds, you need to consume at least 100 ounces of water a day. If you think that water taste is too boring, you can add fresh squeezed lemon or lime to your water.
Tip 4: You Deserve to Eat the Best
Eat those lean, organic meats, organically grown fruits and vegetables, raw dairy and sprouted grain breads in the morning, noon, and night. These are the best of the best, nutritious packed foods that any human can eat.
Here you go – incorporate above these tips into your life, take a little time for yourself and your health, you will see a healthier you. You will feel better about yourself and feel more optimistic about life in general!
