Move your body
Make it a goal to do something energetic each day. Take the stairs instead of the lift, walk the dog for an extra ten minutes, chase the kids around the garden. This is not only a great way to keeping fit but a good stress relief if you’ve had a bad day.
Cut back on the fat
Possibly the trickiest one! Make a list of all the naughty things you eat in one day, list the chocolate bar, crisps, fried foods and see how many you managed to munch throughout the day. If you had 4 naughty treats, try only eating 3 the next day until you’re down to one – one treat a day is fine, remember everything in quantity!
Much easier to say than do, but put aside a little time each day just for you. Do something you like that allows you unwind: Soak in a bubble bath, have a stroll in the park, listen to your favourite music, read a good book, watch a favourite movie. 30 minutes out of a 24 hour day just dedicated to you, now that can’t be bad…
Don’t over do the booze
We’ve all heard that a glass of wine (or two) can help reduce heart disease, but be careful not to over do it. Excessive drinking can lead to liver and kidney problems, not to mention all the calories hidden away. So whilst you’re having some ‘me’ time, enjoy that ‘one’ glass..
There is a connection between be healthy and being positive so make sure you have a smile on your face. Even if you’re feeling down – bellow out your favourite tune or think of a time that made you laugh.
