Everyone wants to stay fit and healthy, but not everyone can get a gym membership and start doing crunches on the bench immediately. It’s not because people are stingy or lazy, but mostly they’ll tell you that they just don’t have the time. Work, school, kids, dates, you name it, everyone has something holding them back from working on those extra baggage.
I’ve been hearing the same question again and again by those people who want to try to cut back on the calories but just can’t afford to go miss the overtime pay for a quick jog on the treadmill, “How do get to be healthy without working so hard?”
The thing is folks, it’s almost impossible to do it without exerting a little effort. You can’ just hit the gym on impulse for one day only and expect to shed the pounds you want to get rid of. It needs dedication and a little bit of investment. It was mentioned earlier that it’s almost impossible, but it doesn’t you can’t work around it.
So how can you do it?
I’ve picked up three things that could help lose baby fat without going through the same workout as those big, strapping muscle-men in gyms do.
1. Ride less, walk more – walking is the best exercise there is, and it does need a lot of effort for one person. Need to go on a quick errand? Try walking to the place instead of catching the bus. You can work on your leg muscles and enjoy the scenery at the same time!
2. Drink tea – Observations show that this is a coffee-drinking generation (what with the popularity of establishments like Starbucks), but that won’t stop me from proclaiming the wonders of tea! Tea is a natural diuretic, meaning you release more waste from your body as you drink it. Not to mention it has a lot of antioxidants that are said to prevent cancer. Try switching from a coffee habit to a tea habit and see the results.
3. EAT in the morning –Eat is in all caps not because of a typo, but just to get it on your head quickly. The saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” isn’t said by mothers repeatedly for nothing. You need fuel as soon as you get up in the morning. If you skip breakfast, you’ll get all the more hungry as the day goes by and you’ll start munching on anything. But if you eat a well, hearty big breakfast, you’ll be set off for the entire day and you won’t have those nagging sensations every now and then to chew on something.
These pointers may be few, but they’re easy starting points on a good habit. They’re easy to do, cost you less, and you won’t even break a sweat in doing it. Remember, everything has to start on something simple, so why not start your health regime with something as simple as these?
