Staying fit and staying healthy are the two things best done together. You will feel better and live better than ever, and you will always know that you are doing your body a favor. One complements another, and even tho if you are living healthy it doesn’t mean you are being fit and vice versa, combining these two things is one of the best things you can do to achieve healthy physical well-being.
Sweet tooth – many people starting with a healthy way of life will have trouble cutting down on sweets. It’s just – sweets. We love them, they release special magic chemicals in our brain that make us happy like we are drugged and it’s hard saying no to them. But, if you decide to hold a diet – there is a trick to it. If you get a late-night sugar to crave, go for a fruit. Eat an apple, a pear, or some grapes, and see if it cuts it. Some vitamins and refreshments will do much better than hard sugar.
Fitness buddy – find a friend that has similar goals or even better motivate someone you know could do some good fitness in their lives and create a motivation wall for your own training. A training partner can do wonders on your psyche as they will motivate you and influence you not ta fail and quit and you can do the opposite for them. In workouts, you can spice things up with some competitive elements making it your goal to beat yourself through beating your partner. Just don’t go too far with it. Shoes – now this is a trick ladies don’t need me saying anything about, but you guys, be careful. Both ladies and gentlemen sometimes make the mistake of getting bad sneakers for their training. Your feet are foundations and you want them to support you the right way. Make your shoes comfy and soft enough not to give you blisters if you use them for long, and you will be at the end. Also, make sure they are not too soft and deform easily as that can damage your feet in the long run.
Music – you might not realize it but music is very important. The psychological influence of music on your everyday behavior is widely known and the same goes for the workout. Get your jams right, find the ones that motivate and inspire you, the ones that make you pump more and endure one more rep every time you are on the edge. Trust us, it can do magic for you. Results are not as visible as is the smile you have while doing your workout happy and in a good mind frame.
Portions – does your plate hold half of the place for the veggies? It should! You might be taking in way too much meat. Is your meal leaving you breathless and motionless? Maybe it’s time to cut it down. Take care of your meals and portions and don’t overeat. It’s better to have smaller meals that can digest properly than to stuff yourself full.
