With the coming new year, new decisions and some old decisions that we have not been able to comply with or implement. Breaking some decisions has now become a ritual. Such a decision is to make you healthy and fit. This happens most of the time because we either don’t put a realistic plan to the commitment of our decision, or we are extremely happy to get out of the comfort zone of the “unhealthy” lifestyle. Although fitness decisions are broken every January, after all, we all want a body that we like and that is at our personal best. Here are the decisions related to physical fitness, which you can actually commit and absorb in your current program:
Failed to plan, plan to fail.
Effective and realistic planning is essential to achieve the goal. Plan before the day, week and month. Set goals and strive for them. Instead of thinking of losing 20 kg a year, the loss was targeted 2 per month. Keep track of your progress and reward yourself to some extent.
Add green tea to your day.
It is known that green tea is wonderful for metabolism and, therefore, for general health. The amount of green tea includes at least twice a day. If you don’t like it, try adding honey to it. Green tea has always been a response to the secret of a healthy and good digestive system. Replace your normal cup with a cup of green tea, without thinking again.
Find your move
Whether it’s jogging, dancing, jumping, biking or walking around in the garden, look for your movement. Whatever you like best, try to make it part of your daily schedule, as long as it gets you moving. Before you know it, you’ll start to love yourself better every day.
Once again, you should be a surprise. Although meditation does not cause sweat and heart failure, it calms the mind and body instantly. This makes it important for good health. Meditation, even if it is only ten minutes a day, reduces stress and therefore allows you to stay healthy, from the inside out. Tension and over-thinking are the two main reasons for an unhealthy lifestyle. When the two can stay in the bay with only ten minutes of meditation, you must make a conscious and wise decision.
You heard right! To sleep! Sleeping less or more than the amount the body needs can be fatal to an individual’s health. A good sleep from seven to eight hours is enough for an adult. The healthy sleep cycle helps you maintain your activity throughout the day and will lead to a healthy and stress-free lifestyle.
The proposed decisions do not force you to get out of the handy bubble right away, but they help you get out of it gradually, allowing you to access the Healthy Living Commission. These activities can be integrated into a person’s daily schedule and even make them better. Try to think of a healthy lifestyle, not as a destination but as a long and beautiful journey.
