A Few Changes In Your Lifestyle That Can Get You Fit In No Time

A Few Changes In Your Lifestyle That Can Get You Fit In No Time
Fitness is generally achieved through intake of proper nutrition, moderately vigorous physical exercise, physical activity, and sufficient rest.

Physical activity doesn't have to be strenuous to produce results. Even moderate exercise five to six times a week can lead to lasting health benefits. When incorporating more physical activity into your life, remember three simple guidelines:

  1. Exercise for around 2 hours and 30 minutes, spread over the course of each week.

  1. Avoid periods of inactivity; some exercise at any level of intensity is better than none.

  1. At least twice a week, supplement aerobic exercise (cardio) with weight-bearing activities that strengthen all major muscle groups.

The question is, how can you make exercise a habit?

Set realistic goals and take small steps to fit more movement into your daily life, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator and walking to a nearby grocery store instead of driving. Use an exercise bike in your home, scope out exercise equipment at a nearby community centre, or consider joining a health club or gym.

Exercising and getting enough sleep is essential to your well-being. The trick is to get to a point where you look at them like brushing your teeth, something you just have to do.
