People swear off of unhealthy habits and make resolutions to change their lifestyles. Unfortunately, most resolutions go the way of the dodo bird. They go extinct. It has happened to all of us.
For those people truly committed to losing some weight in the New Year, health experts have compiled a list of 7 great ways to reach your goal.
1. Turn everyday activities into exercise opportunities.
Instead of paying a gardener to mow your lawn while you go to the gym, skip the gym and mow your own lawn. Instead of driving to the gym, run there. There are tons of activities that can be turned into exercise opportunities every day.
2. Your fitness activity should be fun and enjoyable
It’s much easier to stay committed to an activity that you actually enjoy. Fun activities take the tedium out of monotonous activities and make them enjoyable. It’s easier to dance than to run on a treadmill for an hour.
3. Drink lots of water.
Water is one of the most essential elements in a person’s diet. Dieticians say we need to drink over 100 ounces of water a day. Stay hydrated. It’s a great way to keep healthy and it’s also an amazing way to make your body think you are full.
4. Join a sports team.
Group sports are a great way to get in shape because you have motivational support and you’re doing something fun. Plus, the group can be really helpful in keeping you motivated and committed.
5. Don’t focus on the scale
Some people pay to close attention to the scale. Don’t forget, a healthy exercise regiment includes developing muscle, and muscle weighs more that fat. You may end up noticing yourself gaining weight as u slim down.
6. Get multiple people involved.
It’s always easier to get stuff done when you have a group of people there to help motivate you. When you commit to an activity, enlist multiple people who are willing to participate with you.
7. Experiment with novel foods.
There are tons of foods that you may never have heard of that are really good for you. Break the monotony of the boring health foods you are eating now and try some new healthy foods.
