Have you ever wondered why our ancestors have slimmer bodies and longer lives? It all boils down to simple living wherein people consume nutritious food, had enough exercise, active daily activities, and lesser stress. Let’s begin with exercise. We all agree that it’s really hard finding time to engage in exercise since we are too busy with work, our children, and many other important things we need to do everyday, but we can still exercise without us even noticing it, as long as we have the heart to start doing it, so it becomes a part of our daily routine. Upon waking up in the morning, it’s but natural for us to engage in movements, and it will not harm doing some a little bit of stretching. To work on your cardio, make a habit of using the staircase that the elevator, and encourage some colleagues to do so. Mothers are too busy preparing their kids to school and doing household chores, but you can still exercise by doing things manually instead of relying to your household appliances to burn your calorie, such as manually washing the dishes and washing your delicate clothes.
When it comes to your diet, start changing your poor practices and behavior by choosing the food you buy in the supermarket, selecting whole, more fiber, less processed, and less refined foods. Grab easy to peel and eat foods such as banana, apple, orange and berries instead of chips, chocolate bars and soda. It is really enjoyable eating in front of the TV, but if you want to lose weight, never eat while watching your favorite show or movie, because it will take away your attention from the time and amount of food you’re eating, and even creates a feeling of craving for more. Never stock a lot of food in your refrigerator, especially those that make you crave, otherwise you’ll surely develop a habit of eating more frequently unconsciously, putting all you weight loss efforts to waste.
