Maybe you know that walking for 60 minutes a day is good for your health. Maybe you’ve heard about the benefits of drinking green tea or eating salmon. But have you ever actually done it? If not, then there’s something else I want to tell you: exercise doesn’t have to be complicated. All of us have busy lives and complicated schedules—and that means we don’t always make time for our bodies as often as we should. But the good news is that no matter how busy your schedule gets, there are some simple ways to stay active on the regular without putting in too much effort. Here’s what I’ve learned along my journey toward better health and fitness:
Download a fitness app.
There are many different apps to choose from. You can find them for free or have a monthly or yearly fee. Some of the best fitness apps include;
- [Zombies, Run!] – This app is designed for runners and walkers who want to get fit in their spare time by running through zombies on a treadmill. It’s also good if you just want to exercise without having to worry about keeping track of calories burned or distance covered.
- [Fitbit] – This app tracks your daily activity so that you know how much physical activity your body needs each day (and how many calories). The app also allows users access to other features like food tracking, sleep tracking, weight loss motivation and more!
Keep your water bottle full.
You may be surprised to learn that keeping a water bottle full is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Not only does it help keep you hydrated, but it also helps improve your focus and energy levels. This means that if you’re feeling sluggish or tired after work or school, reaching for a water bottle will have a positive impact on how well-rested and alert you feel afterwards.
The best part? It’s easy to forget about all those benefits when we’re busy with our daily lives—but if we take time out of every day (or even just once in a while) to refill our bottles with new cold H20 from the tap, we’ll find ourselves more energized and motivated than ever before! It will also become a habit and ensures our health rate and body fitness.
Limit your alcohol intake.
If you think about it, drinking alcohol is not the same as eating healthy. When you drink, your body breaks down excess calories into glucose which can lead to weight gain. Alcohol also contains empty calories that may leave you feeling hungrier in the long term and more likely to eat unhealthy foods when hung over. It’s important to keep track of how much alcohol you consume and how often—this will help prevent any unwanted consequences on your health!
Eat in moderation.
Eating in moderation is a way to lose weight and feel better. The key is to eat healthy foods at regular intervals, along with lots of water. This will help you feel satisfied for longer, which means less snacking on junk food or other unhealthy items.
Eating at regular intervals means that you don’t have big meals every day—you eat smaller portions throughout the day instead of having one big meal at dinner time (or breakfast). It’s also important not to skip meals, because this can make your body think that it needs more food than what has been provided! So stick with eating three meals per day instead of skipping any meals at all!
Finally: choose healthy snacks so as not to get too hungry during lunch break or before dinner time
Do something active every day.
It’s no secret that exercise is good for your health. It can help you lose weight and reduce stress, anxiety and depression. But did you know that it can also improve your sleep quality? Or boost your energy levels? Exercise may even help memory! All of these benefits are why we recommend getting some sort of physical activity every day—even if it’s just taking a walk around the block or going for a jog in the park. There’s nothing that guarantees your health and fitness development like physical activity. If you’re a remote worker, check out ways to incorporate activity into your daily half here.
Practice portion control.
You can’t just eat anything and everything in a day. If you do, your body will get used to it, and then you won’t be able to lose weight.
Measure out your portions before every meal or snack. Use a measuring cup or spoon to measure out the amount of food that fits on one plate (or bowl). Then use something like MyFitnessPal or Fitbit app on your phone for calorie tracking so that you know what is reasonable for you at this point in time!
Get comfortable cooking at home.
Cooking at home is a great way to save money on groceries, and it’s also healthier. You can control what goes into your food by cooking from scratch or using fresh ingredients instead of convenience foods. The best part about cooking at home is that many people have kitchens that are just waiting for someone to use them!
If you’re looking for healthy recipes with minimal added sugars, fats and preservatives (which are often found in processed foods), I’ve got some great ones below:
- Clean Eating Recipes – If you’re looking for some quick & easy meals that don’t include meat but still taste amazing then these recipes might be right up your alley! They’re totally plant-based so they’ll help keep those hormones balanced while still giving off all the flavour we crave!
Make it a priority.
If you want to lose weight or eat healthier, then there are some basic things that will help:
- Making time for your health and fitness routine is important. It can take several hours each day or week to see any results from a workout program. However, if you commit yourself every day for at least 30 minutes per session (and do not skip), then over time those 30 minutes will add up to more hours of exercise! So even if it takes longer than one hour at first—keep going! It’s worth it in the long run because not only will working out give us energy but also helps with stress reduction and other benefits as well like better sleep quality. This leads us to why we should start by starting small so that we don’t get overwhelmed by our new lifestyle changes right away which could lead back into old habits again.
