OK, so it’s that time of year again when I start to think about getting healthier and fitter. As regular readers of this blog will know, though; I’m not about to start throwing money at it! I’ve been looking at some lifestyle changes I can make and came up with a few ideas – take a look and let me know if you have given them a go.
Eat Fewer Calories
You eat less; you lose more weight, right? The trouble is, I’ve seen many different diets that can lead to malnutrition in some areas, and I’m not about to do something that’s going to make me ill. Take a no-carb diet as an example. I’ve tried that before, and it just leaves you with no energy to get fit – which is another thing on my ‘to do’ list. So, I’ve been looking at something called Plexus Slim. It’s supposed to give you all the nutrients you need and keep those hunger pangs at bay during your meals. Follow the link to read a review and find out where to buy Plexus Slim and let me know what you think. Have you ever tried it, and if so; how did you find it?
Burn More Calories
The more you put in, the harder you have to work to get it out. However, because I’ll be eating fewer calories, my regular workouts should have more of an effect. I realize that at some point I’m going to need more calories to build muscle and improve my strength. But right now all I’m doing is concentrating on trimming down. Of course, I won’t be splashing out on an expensive gym workout or equipment. Instead, I’m going to use this book to get me to where I want to go. It’s the perfect buy for the spendthrift fitness freak and will let me use my bodyweight to improve my strength. From the comfort of my own home!
Ditching The Car
I’ve made a pact with myself that I’m going to start walking more. In fact, I’m going to ditch my car for as much as I possibly can. Thirty minutes of walking every day is all it takes, by all accounts. And the benefits? Less risk of heart disease and diabetes, and, most importantly to me, a much better night’s sleep. I’ll take all of those for half an hour of my time every day – thank you very much!
Start To Meditate
OK, so that’s a healthy body well and truly sorted. And, no doubt, it will help me deal with stress a little better. But to really get my stress levels down to safe amount, I’m going to investigate meditation. A friend of mine has had some amazing results from practicing Mindfulness, and it’s a technique that interests me. So, I’m going to enroll in a course and see if I can start seeing some of the benefits. According to research, regular meditation can lead to lower blood pressure and a better immune system. And I don’t see anything wrong with that!
So there you have it – my four-step plan for a healthier lifestyle. Wish me luck!
