Living a healthy lifestyle with fitness is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Not only does it helps to prevent deadly diagnosis like cancer, but also gives you a much more positive outlook on life. Being fit is great for your body, mind and spirit.
A positive attitude goes a long way: It takes more energy to frown than it does to smile. Be positive!
Be sure to warm up: Don’t skip your warm ups. They help your body by raising your body temperature to prepare your body for your workout and help you avoid injury.
Include variety: Switch up your routine to include strength days, conditioning days and combo days to see and feel the results.
Get your heart rate up: Put some effort into your workout. Stick to interval or metabolic conditioning instead of long distance training for maximum results.
Train with like-minded individuals: Find people with a common goal and workout together.
Go organic: Swap out your produce for the organic variety.
Smart snacking: Stay away from unhealthy snacks, stock your space up with nuts, veggies, fruits and other healthy snacks.
Kiss fast food goodbye: Stay away from fast food entirely.
Relax: Be productive and refreshed by scheduling downtime into your daily routine.
Black Out: Use blackout curtains in your bedroom to get quality sleep.
Help the environment: Switch to all natural cosmetics and bath products along with all natural cleaning products for the home.
No nukes: Stay away from the microwave, use an oven, toaster oven or range top for reheating. It doesn’t take that much time nor is it an inconvenience because it’s healthier.
Spice up your life: Add spices to your food to give flavor and even burn a little extra fat. Cayenne, mustard, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove will all do the trick depending on the dish.
Declutter your home/work space: Having excess “junk” around makes it hard to think and even harder to be productive. Create a space that is inviting and clutter free.
