When it comes to keeping your health on track, giving yourself a clear and focused plan can be difficult to do. This is because, for the most part, it is a hard task to master; being able to organise something that you have never done before is not something that should be undertaken easily, no matter what it is. However, with a bit of guidance, you’ll be able to put yourself a regime together in no time.
Focus On … Water
Chances are that you are not drinking as much water as you are meant to be. The recommendation is eight glasses of eight fluid ounces every single day – but most of the water that we are consuming on a daily basis is actually coming from the food that we eat rather than straight out of a glass. The more that you drink, the more that your body will thank you. Not only does it help to keep everything moving, but your brain is practically made of the stuff – you need to be drinking to keep it in check. This will help to aid concentration and general motivation. What more could you ask for simply from taking a sip of the cold stuff every couple of hours?
Focus On … Exercise
If you haven’t got a regime or routine for your exercise, it’s time to start thinking about making one. The more that you are able to get up and do something with your day that raises your heart rate, the more that you will be able to set yourself on a good track with your health. If you don’t know where to start with getting yourself up and moving, here’s the T25 schedule to ease yourself in. Not only does exercising help with weight loss, but it can also help alleviate other problems – the most notable being mental health ailments such as depression and anxiety. The influx of positive hormones such as endorphins that are released when you exercise can really help to combat signs of these conditions.
Focus On … Food
There are so many foods which are not as good as they may look or taste – especially when it comes to your health. Sticking to unprocessed foods and having a variety of colour on your plate (there are lots of vegetables that come in all shades of the rainbow!) can really help you to get the essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs to function. While you don’t necessarily need something that is low calorie per se, you can find alternative methods of cooking which can really help with the saturated fat content of your food. Not only that, but cutting out additions like sauces and dressings could really help to combat the excess calories that your body may be consuming on a daily basis. It’s through focusing on your food and what you are eating and drinking that you are really able to get your body back on track with where it needs to be.
