In Tips for fitness by Ethel L. Carlson

“A healthy mind and a healthy body is medicine for the soul” reads a very famous quote. A healthy body keeps you away from diseases, tensions, you would not believe this: but gives you a happy mind also. A healthy body and a healthy mind are inter-related. It is important to prioritize body fitness as it would not only keep you healthy but also robust throughout the day. Fitness refers to eating right and also making sure our body attains the right amount of physical activity. After all, “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. Here are some tips on how to have a healthy, fit body.

Exercise daily.

Improve Balance

Here, exercise does not particularly mean going to the gym and working out. Try to involve at least one physical activity in your daily schedule. Make sure you engage yourself in any physical activity (playing tennis, swimming, badminton) at least an hour. If you have the desire to shed some extra pounds, then brisk walk daily for an hour would help. You can also jog or do sprints. It is usual that your body might ache the first few days you try any physical activity. That is normal. Do not stop, the result, in the end, will turn out good. Drink ample amount of fluids and eat protein after each time your work out. Stay positive throughout the day and develop a healthy and positive mindset. This is one of the most important tips to keep when you want yourself to be fit! Always remember, the result would take time, but the little step you keep every day is what matters to achieve your goal.

Eat Right

Avoid sweets at any cost. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables to get into good shape. Apple will do a fantastic job of keeping your stomach full up to 3-4 hours. Greens like Broccoli and beans will help to clean the digestive tract. Eating seafood such as shrimp and fish is healthy as it contains proteins. Always stick to eating lean meat such as chicken and turkey. Instead of eating a single meal together, try to eat small portions of food at different hours of the day. This will help to improve the metabolism rate. Plan to eat 6-7 times a day. When you have less food in your stomach, the workouts will burn the excess fat in your body as more energy is required. Always calculate your calorie intake. Make sure adequate amount of proteins, carbohydrates, fats are consumed and not more!

Sleep well.

You should get ample amount of rest to recharge your bodies. After work, if you feel tired, sleep for 5- 10 minutes before your workouts. This helps you to stay fresh for your work out sessions.
