We all know that exercise, eating right and getting enough sleep is crucial in order to maintain one's health. However, we also know that some things are easier said than done. Here are a few easy tips that can reportedly help us in our endeavor to keep healthy
Exercise- Enough excuses, if you can't afford a gym membership or simply cannot get to a gym, look no further than your own living room. There are many exercise dvds that are just as challenging than gym workouts. You can chose from yoga and pilates to strength training dvds that require little to no equipment.
Eating Right- Thousands of women strive to lose weight every day. In fact, on any given day, almost half of all women in the United States are on a diet. Instead of eliminating certain foods from your diet, why not eat more of the good stuff? The experts at Self magazine had these yummy suggestions to pile on your plate:Instead of having your usual bowl of cereal for breakfast, try reheating last night's leftovers. The idea is, according to Heidi Skolnik, coauthor of The Reverse Diet, if you eat a heavy breakfast, chances are you will consume less calories throughout the rest of the day. Many of us don't eat breakfast, thinking that we're saving calories. Ironically, it seems like the opposite is in fact true!
Cucumbers, strawberries, and peaches are just a few foods that do not contain many calories and are delicious and satisfying.
Eat a handful of nuts (about 10) daily. Nuts have more calories but they keep you satisfied longer and you may eat less the rest of the day.
