When you come across the words fitness and health, what crosses your mind is the diet. This is true considering that the major cause of our health problems nowadays is our diet. As our lifestyles improve, we tend to change our eating habit and go for fatty foods, meat and drinks such as alcohol just because we can afford them. We therefore end up spoiling our fitness and the health status of our bodies. Below we are going to discuss the tips to help you stay healthy and physically fit.
As discussed earlier, our diet is the major point of consideration. Ensure that you maintain a balanced diet so that you can live a fit life. This will be achieved by shunning all unhealthy foods such as fatty meals, snacks like burgers, sausages and hotdogs and replacing them with fruits and vegetables. Avoid red meat for they are considered unfit for our bodies when taken excessively and go for white meat from chicken, fish and rabbit. Farm products such as milk and eggs are highly recommended. Remember also to use good fats such as Omega 3s from fish and sunflower instead of processed fats that are unfit for you.
Exercise! Exercise! Exercise! This cannot be empathized further. Your body requires to be moved regularly rather than making it stagnates. Walking, jumping, jogging, stretching etc. are the basic body exercises that are easily accessible and cost free. Many of us thinks that in order to have a body exercise you need to go to a gym therefore relaxing thinking that it’s a preserve for the rich. However, you can start by walking to the market, or taking your pet to a walk regularly. Also you can schedule a walking routine daily to work place or at the park. Consider also taking staircase instead of elevators on malls or tall buildings.
Drink a lot of water; this has become a common statement to a point that we are ignoring this vital element requirement. I don’t know whether we find the water tasteless or it’s just our ignorance but majority of us are having soft drinks that are carbonated and few remembers to take water. Since my childhood, I have learned that we should take 7 glasses of water daily. The same case applies today, all over the internet, hospitals and media, the daily water consumption should be a minimum of 7 glasses, no bargain about that if you want to be healthy and fit.
Try as much as possible to live a stress free life because stress greatly contributes to poor health. Read magazines, watch your best TV program, and laugh with friends and family and so on. Create time between work hours to relax and stretch or walks for a while so that your body relaxes and you will definitely feel more revived and productive when you return to your desk.
Finally, allow me to conclude by saying that you have the choice to live fit life. All you need to do is decide to be physically and emotionally fit. Who wouldn’t love to live healthy?
