Often enough we go through life just crawling along with no solid direction.
No Health or fitness plan in place.
No thoughts about your wellbeing or your families wellbeing.
I thought I would write this post today to share with you some fun health tips that will not take to much time out of your day.
I hear week in week about how bored people are about their current eating habits.
This is due to consuming the same foods weekly and not being open to new ideas.
The super markets are filled with a varied selection of fantastic fruit and veg, not to mention herbs, spices and foods from around the world, to be honest we are spoilt for choice, if only we were open to CHANGE.
What stops people from Change is FEAR.
REAL.How often do you tell yourself you do not like something, when in fact it has been years since you last tried it.
Our taste buds change as we get older, here at GM-Fitness we advise that you try new foods, or foods that you previously didn't like as you may pleasantly surprise yourself that you now like them
Tuesdays Health Tips
Pick brightly coloured Fresh vegetables.Vegetables are important part of healthy eating and provide a source of many nutrients, including potassium, fiber, folate (folic acid) and vitamins A, E and C. Options like broccoli, spinach, tomatoes and garlic provide additional benefits, making them a super food!
Potassium may help to maintain healthy blood pressure. Dietary fiber from vegetables helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower risk of heart disease.
Folate (folic acid) helps the body form healthy red blood cells.
Help your body stay hydrated throughout the day, by consuming good quality H20, We lose water throughout the day by breathing, exercising and It keeps things moving, digestion-wise.
Water helps us, you know, go by helping dissolve fats and soluble fibre. Drinking enough water prevents constipation and also reduces the burden on the kidneys and liver by helping to flush waste products.
Take a lunch Time Break
Its approaching 1 pm and your planning to take your lunch at your desk. BIG NO NO.
If you want to be just as productive in the afternoon as you have been in the morning, then take a break, step away from your desk head outside and clear your mind.
The fresh air will do wonders for de-stressing and getting a bit of gentle exercise.
