An Arab proverb says that those who have health have hope and those who have confidence have everything. Contrary to what one might think, adopting a healthy lifestyle is neither complicated nor time-consuming.
Here are some daily health tips for burning calories and staying in shape while working, playing or driving.
When getting up, sit down slowly. Do not use your hands. Straighten your legs and lean forward. Then, feel a slight stretch in the back and the hamstrings. Hold; then using the abdominals, lowered. Rest and repeat a few times. This exercise strengthens the core.
This is a daily health tip that you can practice when preparing your cup of coffee or tea — standing on the side. Place your hand on the counter of your kitchen. Lift the outer leg directly in front of you, keeping it extended. With the upper right body, hold for a few seconds and move it to the side. Hold it and stretch it behind you. Repeat 5 to 10 times with each leg. This exercise tones the outer thighs, hips, and quads.
Use low-fat milk to make coffee and tea. Opt for wholegrain and cereal-based foods instead of prepared dishes. Take a protein-rich meal in the early hours of the day as you may eat less as the day goes on. The boiled egg is an excellent choice because it gives you the feeling of being full and you will not be tempted to have a snack before lunch.
Whenever you brake while driving, press the back button while holding it for 10 seconds, you will develop steel sandwiches.
Take a smart snack by catching an apple. It is full of fiber and water. This will make your stomach feel full and save you some calories you would have accumulated while munching cookies.
Whenever you talk on the phone, get up and walk around. Walk to a colleague who is sitting further away and distributing daily messages. Take the stairs whenever possible. Bring weight when you shop or shop.
Sit in the chair with your back straight and your feet on the floor, squeeze your knees and gently bring them to your chest. Do it several times to strengthen your abdomen.
Start with a light soup for lunch or dinner. Fills you feel fuller and then eats less. After lunch, while you are still sitting at the table, stretch your leg; fold it slowly up and down. Tighten and hold for at least 5 seconds. Repeat with the other leg. Sculpt the quadriceps.
Finally, before you slide in, lie on the floor with your legs on the edge of the bed or chair. Slowly bend your knees by lifting your hips off the ground. Hold for five seconds, relax and repeat several times. Consolidate the hamstrings and the nucleus.
The health tips above will help you burn calories during the day. You may not even realize it until you are stronger, healthier, cleaner, thinner, more energetic, and you feel younger about your mind, body, and spirit.
