Let’s make that dream body a reality! Our 12 week body challenge will change your life.
Don’t Skip Breakfast
Having breakfast raises your metabolism tremendously and keeps you full for a longer time, which is proven to prevent you from overeating during the day. Kick off your day with a good and nutritious breakfast to focus on your work or studies. Even if you just eat some fruits, you will feel more energetic and focusing rather than doing your daily activities with an empty stomach.
Make a Meal Prep
Meal preparation prevents you from eating junk food when you are hungry at work. Prepare your meals and store them properly so that you don’t have to eat sugary food whenever you are hungry. Based on your needs, make your own meal prep to reach your goals. In addition, meal planning saves you a lot of time and effort, so pick a day and prepare your meals for the whole week.
Sip in Water Regularly
Dehydration is not favored when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, so drink around 8 cups of water daily. Drinking water also helps in fat loss as it can prevent you from overeating. Refresh your body and quench your thirst with water and stop drinking soft drinks because they lead to many health issues. Also eat veggies and fruits that are too watery.
Schedule Social Media
Don’t put yourself in a bubble and miss what can take place in the “real” world. Social media is not realistic, and it might put you in a lot of anxiety and stress. Despite the fact that your friends’ and family’s updates are just a click away, social media has many drawbacks that you might not even notice. Make sure you limit your time on social media and enjoy what can be done in the real world instead.
Upgrade Your Knowledge And Skills
Even if you don’t like this skill at once, give it a try because it might turn out to be your comfort zone. Try a new outdoor activity or read more about an interesting fact that popped up in your mind. Train your brain or else it will end up being rusty. Upgrading your knowledge also prevents you from being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
Move your body and let the blood pump all over your veins. Stretching and simple full body exercises will keep you fresh and alert. Walk daily or even do some fun cardio exercises for few minutes everyday to stay healthy. You don’t have to be totally fit, but also don’t leave your body without any blood pump.
Smoking harms your longs a lot and puts you in a state of being diagnosed with many heart and lung diseases. Quitting smoking will restore your healthy conditions quickly and you will notice that in your blood pressure for example.
You only grow, develop, and recover when you are sleeping. So a proper and 8 hours sleep benefits your body a lot. Sleeping well puts you in a good mood and state and you find yourself more productive in work or studies. Sleeping properly also prevents you from some heart diseases and makes your skin look much better.
Who said that cardio is the only thing that helps in fat loss? Weightlifting demands the movement of many joints and burns a lot of calories in return. You can try doing full body workouts and general strength training twice weekly and you will start feeling stronger, fitter, and fresher. Focus on compound multi-joint exercises if you are short in time.
Have a Sun Meeting
Having few minutes in the sun is crucial for your bones, mood, and heart as it supplies you with vitamin D. The sun prevents depression, so open your windows in the morning and let it get in, have a walk in the sun for a time, go for a picnic or a BBQ with your friends. Nature alters your mood tremendously, especially when it comes to sun and green landscapes. Level your peace of mind and experience true liveliness.
Meditate With Some Yoga
Whatever your age is or state, meditation will help you stay balanced and active through all of the day. Sustain your health condition and even enhance it with yoga or tai chi. They increase your mobility and flexibility, which will make you feel lighter and younger even at older age.
We have talked about physical meditation, but actually mental meditation is very important as well. Mindfulness keeps stress away from you and relieves all your pains and anxiety. Exercise doing all your daily activities with mindfulness, which can alter your mood significantly.
