Unhealthy body leads to unhealthy mind, which further leads to loss of attentiveness in your daily chores. Thus, you need to get in shape before those common pressures start building up again. Here are 5 tips that will help you to get fit quickly in time after the end of the party season.
1. Proper Sleep
Sleep plays a vital role in staying fit. Let’s break down what happens when there is lack of sleep. If you stay up late, you tend to get hungry and you munch on snacks. Snacks that are not entirely healthy. And after a while, you fall asleep. Once you wake up, you feel clogged, leading you to intake food rich in calories. You will feel tired to do exercises, and the cycle repeats.
It is advisable that a person should sleep for seven hours straight. If you are a deep sleeper, then six hours is good for you. Not less.
2. Eating Healthy
Reducing your meals drastically won’t aid you to get fit quickly. You must have a balanced diet, and skipping meals won’t help either. You have had so many carb rich food that now is the time to cut them down. Avoid white bread, white rice, and anything with additional sugar. This means, a strict no to bottled or can juices, soft drinks, etc. Opt for fresh juices. Blend a cucumber, spinach, celery and kale together and drink it. This magical drink will reduce inflammation and will obstruct in gaining excess weight.
The best thing to do is to eat your breakfast like a king, your lunch like a prince, and your dinner like a peasant. And in between, go for healthy snacks like a handful of almonds, or munch on crackers. don’t forget to drink plenty of water.
Walking has been considered to be one of the best exercises if you want to stay fit. It is recommended to walk 30 minutes daily. If you are not driving, and are using the public transport to work, then why don’t you try to walk as much as you can? If you are speed walking, you can go up to 20 minutes per day. But make sure you are walking everyday.
