Instead of making a promise to ourselves to keep fit, burn calories and breaking it, we should try to change the way we live. Change our habits. If we look at it positively, its a one time exercise. We have to bring a few changes in our day to day living and it can make a huge difference in our lives for the better. Keeping fit is something we cannot avoid. And the earlier we start the better. But to go to a join gym and stick to a diet provided by dietician is sometimes not possible. Here are a few workable options.
Inculcate physical activities in your Day-To-Day life: Take to climbing stairs (Getting down the stairs is bad for the knees so take a lift to come down), mow the lawn, play with your kids, walk home from office if its walk-able distance etc. Physical activities are not only a good way to burn calories or stay toned, physical activities are a stress buster too.
Learn To Avoid Junk- Oily- Fried- Fatty- Food or Aerated Drinks: Try not to give in to temptation and cut down on junk, oily and fatty food altogether. No aerated drinks either. Eat the lower-fat version of meals that go well with your routine. Never leave home on an empty stomach. Because when we are starving we gorge! Meaning we over eat the wrong food.
Protect yourself from pollution outside and within: Steer clear of situations at home, with friends or in office that can give rise to heated discussions and stress thereafter. Work out a more sensible approach. It will do a lot of good to your own blood pressure and skin!
Likewise to steer clear of the pollution in the atmosphere, take a road with lesser traffic. Pick odd time to drive or commute and avoid the rush and dust. Both these forms of pollution are our biggest enemies. Don’t forget to wear your seat belt!
Quit smoking and cut down on excessive drinking: Ashtray leads you astray. So resolve to quit. Similarly cut down on drinking alcohol as much as you can. It is said, half a glass of beer is better than none and drinking in moderation is good for the heart etc. But in reality nobody stops after half a glass of beer and moderation and alcohol don’t gel. Of course we find exceptions. But they are exceptional people with immense will power and self control. For us mortals its better to do away with smoking altogether and limit our drinking urge to social occasions.
Learn to be happy: Understand that you can say No without hurting people. Remember that you can’t give others what you don’t have. So unless you are happy and contented how can you spread it amongst your loved ones? First be. Then spread. We are talking about happiness and contentment not butter!
