As winter draws to a close, spring and summer will be upon us before you know it. Sunshine, warm temperatures and less clothes to cover your body. Every year at his time millions of people are coming out of their cocoon and dreading the “winter body”. This doesn’t have to be a stressful time if you follow a few easy steps to look and feel your best.
With 66 percent of the population considered overweight, dropping the pounds can be one of the most difficult tasks to accomplish. Here are some do’s and don’ts in order to become healthier.
Don’t diet, reduce calories. 95 percent of all diets fail. Don’t restrict your body from the nutrients it needs to thrive. Using common sense, portion control and eating healthy proteins, carbohydrates and fats will help you lose weight and feel happy.
Exercise is a must for healthy weight loss, adding lean muscle and boosting the happiness in your brain. Adding a simple 30 minute exercise routine everyday will help drop the fat, tone up your lagging muscles and give you the drive and focus to power through the rest of your day.
Make sure you stay hydrated. Many times being thirsty can be mistaken for hunger. When your body is very dehydrated the brain can sense that you are hungry. Start each day with a large glass of water to get your body started. Adding a glass of water before each meal will also help you feel fuller quicker.
Add all natural “boosters” to your everyday life. Quality products such as Transdermal skin patches for everyday health and wellness needs can jumpstart your body and attitude in a positive direction while helping you meet your health and fitness goals.
These are just a few of the most simple steps anyone can do everyday to get prepared for the summer months and every month in between all while improving health and wellness. Remember to start slowly, use common sense and focus on your end result. The rest will follow and you will thank yourself in the end.
