Drink regular fluids will instantly help you to stay healthier: a hydrated body delivers much more energy, stamina and awareness. Drinking water can also assist with weight loss, helping to flush out any invaluable toxins. The key is to avoid sugary drinks as much as possible, it is easy to disregard the number of calories these contain and the way that our body stores these liquids if you don’t have an active lifestyle.
Mix things up! Combining weight and cardio workouts together is one of the most effective methods of keeping healthy. Cardio burns the unwanted calories and the weight training creates an ‘after burn’ effect, meaning that you body can continue to burn calories even after you’ve finished exercising.
3. Interval training
Often, the reason our healthier lifestyle can slip is time. Finding the time to workout can be difficult. Interval training is based on higher intensity workouts for shorter periods of time, therefore offering a more time-friendly way of exercising with similar results.
4. Avoid procrastination
Waiting for the perfect conditions to head out for a run, or outdoor session just prolongs the start of your workout. Similarly, you need to enjoy your exercise if it is going to become a more permanent feature of your lifestyle. Find out which exercise path works best for you and just go for it!
If finding motivation is your biggest barrier, why not find a workout partner or friend to train with? The interaction and communication with people during a workout can distract the brain from the activity and, inevitably, allow you to keep going for longer. Set realistic goals and time frames.
