A consistent lifestyle will promote healthier eating and exercising habits. Sure, it can be hard to change your routine, but tweaking little things and continuing to do so will enable a happier, healthier you.
No one is perfect, plus every once in a while you really just want to eat that burger and fries. It’s perfectly fine to indulge; especially if you make sure that your three meals that day are healthy alternatives to your “cheat” meal.
Even on your worst and most lazy days, you should strive to get up and move, and eat the best you can to keep your habit consistent. Additionally, follow these steps to maintain that healthy lifestyle you have always wanted.
Try These 7 Tips For A Healthier You:
1. Get at least 10,000 steps a day.
A great way to count your steps is to use gadgets like activity monitors and GPS watches. They will keep up with your every move, and some models also log your sleep hours and provide you with extra motivation.
Here are some simple ways you can reach your 10,000 steps:
• Always use the stairs.
• Walk the dog.
• Aim to park far away from any building.
• Pack your lunch so you can walk during your break.
2. Teach your body to be healthy.
Train your body to be healthy, and it will act accordingly. If you stop eating sweets, you won’t crave them half as much. Plus, after you eliminate something out of you diet, chances are you won’t even like it when you do eat it. Make sure you keep your healthy eating habits consistent.
3. Eat breakfast.
Make sure to eat breakfast EVERY day. This will jumpstart your metabolism by signaling your body it’s okay to feel hungry. You will need food for energy to keep up with all those steps anyway!
4. Allow some sweat.
Sweat is our body’s cooling system. When you work out often, your body will immediately start to sweat, because it knows what it’s in for. However, if you don’t regularly work out, your body will take longer.
Make sure you move enough and try to exercise every day to keep your sweat a constant.
5. Think long-term.
Dieting is short-term. What you really need, in order to make a difference (and see the change stick!), is to make healthy changes that last a lifetime. Eat clean; lower your sugar, sodium, and starches.
6. Drink enough water.
You should never feel thirsty; if you do, you should up your water intake. Staying hydrated means your workout won’t count as much (no matter how hard you work).
7. Stay active.
One hour at the gym does not lead to an active lifestyle. Again, the key here is consistency. Make sure you are moving throughout your entire day. Hitting the gym every day is great, but make sure you’re not idle the rest of the time.
Get up and move around, do a lap around the office – anything you can to stay active during your down time.
