Everyone wants to be healthy and in shape, we don’t even need research to back that up. More now than ever people searching for simple tips and tricks to make their lifestyle better. This year, Google revealed that one of its top searches was “intermittent fasting diet”. This goes to show you how the front of mind dieting and losing weight is for Americans. People are looking to make major lifestyle changes, but they usually can’t find the time to implement them. Let’s dive into some ways to create a wellness routine for you that fits your busy schedule:
1. Wake Up Early.
Nobody likes to do it, but there are actually some incredible health benefits to waking up earlier and going to bed earlier. A biology professor at the University of Education in Heidelberg, Germany stated, “When it comes to business success, morning people hold the important cards. My earlier research showed that they tend to get better grades in school, which get them into better colleges, which then leads to better job opportunities. Morning people also anticipate problems and try to minimize them.” If you’re not a morning person, this statement might come off discouraging, but there are a few ways to prove this research wrong. The sooner you get into the habit of going to bed early and waking up early, you will feel a difference in your productivity, happiness, and overall well being. So, you don’t necessarily need to be a morning person to be successful, all you need is good and consistent habits.
2. Eat clean.
According to research, it is important to drink one to two glasses of water before you eat meals. This improves digestion, prevents headaches, and actually has been proven to help with weight loss. Eating more greens, and smaller portions are obviously great ways to stay healthy, but there is nothing worse than being hungry throughout the day. While at work, school, or wherever you are productive, it is important to snack a few times throughout your time in between meals. Snacking helps you eat smaller portions during meal times, and they are great ways to wake your brain up and boost productivity.
3. Do Unconventional Workouts.
Nobody ever said that you are required to do all workouts in a gym. Some people actually have gym-intimidation… yes, that is a thing. According to studies by StudyFinds 50% of Americans experience gym-intimidation, which means half of our readers hate going to the gym. These exercises are awesome ways to get your body moving, all in the comfort of your own home. The next time you find yourself running out of time for the gym in your schedule, look to these exercises to fill the fitness void in your life.
