HEALTHY TIPS FROM YOUR PERSONAL TRAINER

 

   The road to living a healthy lifestyle is not an easy one, but we must do everything we can to keep      it simple. Let's keep in mind that this is a way of life so we must be health conscious and aware in      our efforts to attain and more importantly to maintain being fit and healthy. Remember it is always a    work in progress. Here are some tips to help guide you on your journey to being in control of your      health.

  • Be committed! Be accountable! Be consistent!

      You must: 1) Be dedicated to your health goal (s) 2) Be responsible for your actions and or lack         of 3) Have the staying power to "see it through."

  • Check in with your doctor first. 

      Get exams regularly so that you are aware when something is off.

  • Get your rest.

      Lack of sleep could have a negative effect on us physically and mentally which in turn may cause         adverse effects in mood, concentration, memory, metabolism and motor skills.

  • Keep hydrated

      because it is crucial for the brain and flushes toxins through the skin and urine.

  • Start your day off right with a healthy breakfast every day 

 

      because it gives you the fuel and energy you need for maximum physical and mental                         performance. It is an important fact that eating a balanced breakfast will help you maintain                 stable blood sugar levels which makes you less likely to overeat throughout the day. 

  • Practice moderation when it comes to food and fun. 

      Remember to make healthy choices a part of your daily life. Avoid extremes and over indulgence.

  • Drop your bad habits.

 

      Alcohol, sweets, junk food, and fast food. Keeping these things in moderation while staying               healthy, conscious and aware most of the time is realistic. Also be aware of habits like smoking           and drugs which have no place in a healthy persons life.

  • Manage and reduce stress.

 

      Don't overwork, take breaks (vacations) and manage your stress by being around people who love       and support you because stress can create other issues from digestive to heart trouble.

  • Laugh, enjoy and express yourself.

 

      Unexpressed feelings can lead to depression, eating disorders, sleep issues and sometimes eating         disorders not to mention even physical pain. Keeping your emotions bottled up inside can cause         mental and emotional stress as well could take a physical toll on you.

  • Eat healthy.

      Fruits, vegetables, complex carbohydrates like yams, potatoes and rice. Proteins such as fish,             poultry, beans and lentils. Avoid processed, fatty, salty, greasy foods. Snack on fruits, vegetables         and nuts. Stop eating before you are completely full to give your body a chance to digest your           food.

  • Exercise regularly.

 

      Go for a walk, ride, jog, or run a few times a week. Exercise improves circulation as well as                 strengthens your heart and lungs. Regular exercise keeps you fit, healthy and can help combat           depression.

  • Remember it's the little things that you do each day that makes you fit and healthy... 

 

      Enjoy your new, purposeful, fit, healthy lifestyle. God bless.
