Certainly, there is nothing easy about losing weight. However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t things you can do to make the process easier. In fact, there are six things you can do every day that will make losing weight a little more simple than counting calories, keeping track of exercise reps, and all of the other slightly more complicated things health experts recommend you to do slim your waistline.
Here they are:
- Breathe. The more time you spend stressed out, the more weight your body will likely hold. Instead, take a few deep breaths throughout the day and let your tension (and your weight) go.
- Eat. Instead of trying to limit your food intake to once or twice a day, aim to eat 5-6 mini-meals. This keeps your metabolism going and helps protect you from blood sugar issues that can derail even the best diet intentions.
- Sleep. When you are tired, you tend to make poorer food choices. So, get your 7-9 recommended hours per night and you’ll find it easier to stick to a healthy eating lifestyle.
- Move. The more you move your body, the more calories you burn. Aim to add exercise into your day by pacing when you are on the phone, tapping your foot while sitting at your desk, and walking to your neighbor’s house instead of calling. It all adds up.
- Laugh. Laughing is not only good for you mentally, but it is good for you physically as well. Just as breathing releases your stress, so too does chuckling at something funny so find regular reasons to giggle.
- Read. The more you understand nutrition and exercise, the better your food choices. Research the latest findings online or pick up an actual book and see what information you can locate.
Now, all you have to do is just breathe, eat, sleep, move, laugh, and read and you will be on your way to a thinner body. It really doesn’t get any easier than this, does it?
