This post is all about some healthy lifestyle we should adopt today and live the right life healthy and happy.
1. Grab yourself a smoothie for breakfast
Forget about buying smoothies that are sold at your local smoothie bars or fast-food joints, as these ones are usually packed with lots of sugar. Moreover, put these ingredients in the blender for a healthy meal on the go: one scoop of your choice of protein powder; one small handful of walnuts; one cup of spinach or kale; one to one and a half cups of blueberries, strawberries, peaches, or bananas; a few ice cubes; and two cups of water. Blend until the ice is completely crushed and enjoy your drink.
2. Do a few abs strengthening exercises
Planks and side planks are a very good way to strengthen your core very fast. Find one minute everyday to fit in your planks, and make it an every day routine. In a cases where you can’t hold the position for the full 60 seconds, stay as long as you can and then do it again as many times as necessary to total 60 seconds of working out.
3. Plan your breakfast for the week ahead
When you try to choose what you are going to eat in the morning while you are preparing to get out the house and head to work is a call for diet disaster. Take 10 minutes every night to plan out all your breakfasts for the next day. Having a weekly nutrition plan will increase your likelihood of following through and eating a good breakfast every morning.
4. Start doing strength training exercises
The more muscle you have, the higher and faster your body metabolism runs. In reality, strength training can help in boosting your metabolism by as much as 15 percent! A faster metabolism means you will burn more calories all day long (even sitting in front of your computer) and get lean and toned faster.
5. Eat vegetables as breakfast
Include a healthy kick to scrambled eggs by adding salsa. Not only will it boost the flavour of your morning meal, but tomatoes are full of lycopene, a nutrient that been discovered to reduce cancer risk. The human body can absorb more lycopene from cooked or processed tomato products like salsa.
6. Replace high carbohydrate foods with protein
To live a healthy lifestyle, your diet must experience some changes with time. Replace some of the foods rich in carbohydrates (rice, cereal, breads) in your diet with protein (meat, beans, egg, fish, etc.) at each meal. You can try eating the ketogenic way. 70% fats, 25% protein and 5% carbohydrates.
7. Quit smoking
Smoking is one bad and addictive habit that so many people engage. Tar from smoking usually damages the lungs leading to so many health issues. For a healthy lifestyle, you need to avoid smoking so as to avoid smoke related health complications like cancer, high blood pressure, and heart attack.
