Well, we all know, that a healthy person doesn’t smoke, is at a healthy weight, exercises and eats healthy. Sounds simple, but those who have tried changing their habits know how difficult it could be. Some people decide to make drastic changes, but when they face the difficulties, they just lack motivation and give up.
Everyone of us wants to be fit, healthy, and live a long active life. Right? But what do you do for it?
The secret to healthy living is making small changes: glass of water in the morning, more physical activity, optimistic point of view – these are just a few simple ways to improve your lifestyle. Small changes lead to big results!
1. Eat Breakfast.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially for you weight loss seekers. If you skip it, you’ll get hungry long before lunch and will start snacking on foods that are high in fat and sugar, but low in vitamins. Researchers at the 2003 American Heart Association conference reported that breakfast eaters are significantly less likely to be obese and get diabetes compared with non breakfast eaters.
2.Snack the Healthy Way.
Potato chips, salted nuts, candies, cookies and other tasty stuff are definitely unhealthy for your body. They contain lots of fat, salt, sugar. Choose raw nuts, fresh fruits or berries instead, they are rich in vitamins and minerals.
3.Take a Daily Walk
We all know about the advantages of physical activity, but most of us have neither time, nor desire to exercise. Use the stairs as often as possible instead of the elevator, take a walk with your friends, walk your dog a bit longer, than usually – use any possibility to be more physically active. Researchers say, that people only need to walk up to 12 miles per week or for about 125 to 200 minutes per week to improve their heart health
4.Love Your Life!
Relax! Don’t get nervous and angry because of the trivial things. Don’t be too serious. Smile, love others, and always look on the bright side of life!
Health Warrior Chia Bars, Coconut/Acai Berry/Mango Variety Pack, 13.2-Ounce (Pack of 15)
These are delicious, soft and chewy little snack bars. I love them because they are tasty, almost like a cookie. The size is tiny, about 2″x3″, so don’t expect them to replace breakfast. But they are great for a pick me up along with other snack items, for a dessert replacement, or I even carry them around in my bag to take for a quick bite along with pills just to have something in my stomach.
