Fitness: Mindful of the Little Things!
Ever noticed how few a “insignificant” things can make all the difference?
As much as we love (or not) sports, we should put it this way: health = wellbeing = fitness!
Everybody should have some sort of physical activity in everyday life (as we have been created to be active and move around). Yet, here we are! Walking by car, going up by elevator and so on…
It’s comfy, no? I love it too, but then I also love to take care of myself and feel/look good.
So in an everyday rush we should give ourselves a moment to love the body we are in and ensure a minimum of a 45min workout; especially if we're looking to shed a few kg away.
What to do? A high-level intensity workout? The easiest, go on a walk (outdoors or on a tread mill) at a brisk pace or, jog and set certain intervals to sprint during that session. Just a warning, your muscles may ache after a high intensity workout. It may be irritating, but that means your body is changing for the better. Have a good stretch at the end of the workout.
Then, make sure to stay hydrated, eat the right foods and portions each meal. Try to plan to eat 5 times a day and settle for smaller portions, rather than having three large meals throughout the day. This will help your breathing to be smoother whilst working out rather than gasping for air, and because you will have less food in your digestive system, more energy will be used from the extra deposits of fat.
Last, but not least, be sure to get enough sleep: 6-8 hours of sleep will keep the body going throughout the day, but if it happens that you feel tired after returning from work, take a power nap before exercising - one should only nap for about half an hour. This will prevent you from staying up later in the night.
Now, try to settle for these basics and create the routine, and I’ll be right back at you next week for more fitness.
Stay motivated! Set realistic goals and keep a positive mindset.
