I hope you guys are well and as happy as I am in this horrible British weather. It’s been a long week and college seems to be getting harder and harder but I guess you’ve got to get though the rough days to see the good days right?
So today I wanted to start a new aspect to my blog as you may have guessed it – a healthy lifestyle! As a main new year’s resolution I set myself to stop eating junk as well as getting fitter. I have stuck to it so far with eating more fruit as a substitute to chocolate. Also, ensuring I exercise and walk a lot everyday and hit the gym once a week too. All these little pieces add up quite nicely to making you much healthier and increasing your activity of exercise.
So from now I will share every month or so my top tips for staying healthy and work outs to ensure you are maintaining that exercise. As I’ve mentioned previously I’m not an expert of any sort all tips are based on experience and have worked for me so I’d think it’d benefit you therefore I’m sharing them with you guys.
1// Ensure you start your day with a small but powerful breakfast – Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gets you alive and awake for your long day ahead so its crucial you feed your system with powerful foods. A perfect idea, which is also a trend right now is a power drink made in the nutribullet. This is the perfect solution to adding a variety of healthy components into one. Firstly, start by adding some of your favourite fruits like blueberries,mango and pineapple in small proportion then add a little salad so this could be rocket or spinach whichever floats your boat. Then some key segments would be a few nuts, pumpkin seeds and gogi berries which are an amazing trigger for the brain and to top it off add some water. Just for breakfast you’ve got your five a day as well as water and brain food – its a win win really!
2// Have frequent but small meals – It’s crucial to keep your stomach happy, however not too much so the best thing to do is have small meals containing healthy foods this could be either a salad with avocado, tuna and even meat – which is my favourite! Also, add a squeeze of lemon as its good for loosing weight. This could even be your favourite meal but just substituting anything unhealthy with something healthy. During the day a perfect snack or just something to keep you going would be a belvita breakfast biscuit.
3// Workout & Walk often – Most people don’t see walking in the light that it should be seen as predominantly its one of the easiest ways of burning calories and the easiest style of exercise. Instead of getting in the car to reach a destination close to you just walk it’s perfect to get some fresh air and ask a few friends to go on walk its a good way to socialize and do good for your body. Workouts have easily become one of my favourite things to do everyday as if your like me walking can seem bland but working out you can go onto Youtube and there is a variety of workouts you can follow and once you’ve gotten the hang of it you can make your own to do whilst listening to your favourite music.
4// Go to the gym – Most people prefer to go to the gym rather than working out but whatever suites you as a person is best. However, the gym can boost your health and muscular strength too so even if it is once a week your still getting that extra strength whilst working on the components of your body you wish to improve.
These are all a few tips I’ve learnt across the past month, I hope they can help you!
