There are a lot of benefits to staying physically fit. You’ll have more energy, you’ll look great, and you’ll notice improvements in your overall health. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to stay in great shape. However, if you focus on nutrition and exercise, you can make a lot of healthy physical changes. Don’t forget that a positive attitude is also really important to staying fit and beautifully healthy

1.Exercising Effectively:

0174

Exercise is one of the most important aspects in staying fit and healthy. Experts recommend that you should aim to be active for at least 30 minutes per day. Try scheduling your exercise the same way that you schedule other appointments and commitments. If you are finding it difficult to block out 30 or 60 minutes of your day for exercise, try getting your movement in smaller chunks of time.

2.Go Outdoors:

0175

Exercising outside can also have positive benefits for your mental health. In studies, people who walked both outside and inside reported enjoying the activity much more when completed outside. Many parks will have great areas for running or walking. If you like sports, you can also make use of the tennis courts or basketball courts.

3.Be Social:

0176

If you involve other people in your exercise routine, you’ll see a positive impact in your results. Finding a workout buddy can help with accountability. If you schedule an activity with a friend, you are less likely to cancel than if you were only cancelling on yourself. Working out is a great way to meet new people. Try joining a running club or a tennis league.

4.Get the Right Nutrition’s:

0177

When you’re cooking your yourself, you can fully control the ingredients you use. Eating well can help control your weight. Try to eat a diet that includes several servings a day of fresh fruits and vegetables. These are packed with vitamins and fibre. Eat lean meats and fish. These will provide you with protein and also gives your body healthy fats. Make your plate colourful. The more colour on your plate, the more fruits and vegetables you are likely eating. Try for leafy greens, like kale, and vibrant orange tones, like those in sweet potatoes and carrots.

5.Build a positive body image:

Mental health is an important part of feeling fit and beautifully healthy. It can be hard to have a positive body image when we are inundated with pictures of very thin actresses and models. But there are ways you can learn to feel good about yourself, no matter your shape. A positive body image will help you stay motivated to eat healthy and work out. Find something you like about your looks and make that your focus. For example, if you have been running a lot lately, compliment yourself on how strong your legs are looking. Avoid negativity. Try not to criticize yourself. It’s fine to want to make changes, but try to give yourself encouragement, rather than tearing yourself down.

6.Focus on how you feel:

  Body image is all about how you feel about how you look. So try to focus on positive feelings. Focus on the good things your body does for you, like give you the energy to play with your dog. When you feel healthy, you will also feel more fit and beautiful. Don’t worry about the numbers on the scale. Instead, focus on how strong you feel and how your clothes fit. Base your personal fitness assessment on your energy levels and overall health, not on your weight.

 7.Get enough sleep:

Make sure to get seven to nine hours of sleep the night before. Not getting enough sleep could amp up appetite levels the following day.

8.Regular Check ups:

0178

One should get annual physical check up to make sure everything is as it should be. There is no harm getting regular check-ups as it’s good for your own body. Do breast or testicular self-exams and get suspicious moles checked out. Getting exams regularly benefits you because if and when something is abnormal, you will get to know about it timely and can consult with your doctor.

9.Do not skip breakfast:

One should have healthy breakfast as it keeps you energetic and fuelled for optimal mental and physical performance. Eating breakfast helps to maintain stable blood sugar levels and a healthy weight because you are less likely to overindulge later in the day.

10.Drink Water:0179

Our bodies are made mostly of water. Most fluids and foods contain water that will help to keep our bodies hydrated, but fresh, clean, plain water is still the best and healthiest beverage for maintaining a healthy body. It is the most natural cleanser for our organs and digestive system. Being hydrated is crucial for the brain as well as for helping to flush toxins out through the skin (perspiration) and urine.

“Fitness starts at home. What you eat is what you will look, just as what you sow is what you reap. Eat good food: eat fruits, vegetables, healthy grains, and don’t go for sweet and trite food.”
