1. Start Slow
Most people make the mistake of starting an exercise plan that is too hard and the strain of adjusting to the vigorous routine makes them give up. The main goal in the beginning is to make exercising accomplishable without any strain.
2. Take the Stairs
Stairs are very suitable for conducting cardio exercises that help strengthen your quads, calves and bootie. Going up the stairs is a low impact exercise and is something we can easily do on a daily basis. Opting to take the stairs instead of the elevator is something simple, very effective and a great alternative to running.
3. Entertain Yourself
Sticking to the same workout playlist gets boring with time. Switch up the playlist or try something new to kill the monotony. An audio book or a podcast might be a good alternative. Choose one that talks about health and it will give you the motivation to keep on working out.
4. Make Healthy Food Choices
Making healthy food choices is extremely important. This is one of the easiest things you can do physically on a daily basis in a bid to stay in good physical condition. It is worth noting that this does not mean you need to measure all the food you eat, you just need to eat more healthy foods. Fruits and vegetables should be part of your daily routine, along with foods containing other beneficial nutrients such as fiber and protein. Food has a very large part to play in the overall condition of our bodies, you are what you eat, so eat healthy.
5. Walk it Off
Walking has several benefits for our bodies and is great way to get the oxygen flowing. When you have the opportunity, choose walking over a ride. This will keep your muscles active, your body fit, and is great for the environment. Stay lean, mean and green!
