Fitness is trending!
Despite our nationalistic affair with food and festivities, Most Filipinos want to improve their health. Why do you think people are easily hooked by the latest fitness craze? Zumba at SM, anyone?
The only problem is that it is difficult to squeeze a sufficient amount of time for a beneficial fitness regimen. Not for long! Read thru this list to know more about the quick and simple ways to stay in shape no matter how busy you are.
Start Your Day With a Dose of H20
Before getting off your glorious bed, create a mental reminder to gulp a relatively huge glass of water. The idea behind this is that drinking water can help replenish the oxygen that we exhausted throughout the night. It also promotes weight loss and washes out toxins.
I have no problem with this since I adore the distinctive taste of water. I would always choose water and wine over any restaurant beverage. But, you may squeeze a lemon or calamansi if you want a hint of tang. You may also add a bit of natural honey for a kick of sweetness.
Shy Away From Temptations
“Happy hour after work” sounds insanely tempting, but it adds extra calories to your diet. Do not get me started with belly fat! This is why it is important to control your alcohol consumption. If your diet is severely lacking in other nutrients, it is best to shy away from it.
Plan Your Weekly Meals
One of the most efficient things that you can do for your diet is to plan for it in advance. Allot a portion of your Sunday to assemble your weekly meals and snacks. You may create a variety of well-balanced meals by following this routine.
With your busy nature, you may prepare your snacks or meals at night. Pack these food in plastic containers (like what your mom used to do) and pick them up on your way out every morning.
Combat the Grocery Shop’s Marketing Tricks
Grocery shops employ sly marketing tricks, as with any type of business establishments. They begin by inducing the smell of freshness as the aroma of the baked goods and flowers greet you near the entrance. Also, they placed all the necessities at the outer edges of the store to make you roam the whole place. Stick to these outer edges to keep away from the and preservative-filled items in the center aisles. This will also enable you to save time and money.
Divide and Conquer
Instead of squeezing your weekly exercise during the weekends, spread it out on the weekdays. Spend at least 15 minutes of the day for running, lifting weights, and other forms of physical activity. The goal is to consume roughly 75 minutes of challenging workouts each week.
Your health is important no matter how strict your schedule is. If you take care of your body, your productivity and vitality will manifest throughout the day. Stay well! 🙂
