In general, people think that you would have to spend long hours at the gym before you can get fit and healthy. With this in mind, most people tend to slide away from having an active and healthy lifestyle due to the fact that they do not have the luxury of time to spend at the gym plus the cost that it would incur too. The important thing that people should understand is you do not have to spend too much time to sweat. There are lots of alternative to this!
One good alternative is doing nano workouts. These are the workouts which you can do just about everywhere! Here are some simple nano workouts that you can try:
In the bathroom
Do squats while you are brushing, shaving or drying your hair. This type of workout targets your thigh.
On the couch
Try to lean your body back and raise your legs a bit and try to pedal it. This works on your lower legs as well as abs.
In the streets
Try sitting in street furniture. Sit straight then start moving your legs towards your shoulders and chest. Do this repeatedly. This resembles sit ups but in a vertical position.
In the grocery
Carry your shopping bags up and down like you would a dumb bell. This one will target the upper arms.
Walk straight with your abs tensed. This one will shape up your abs.
At the office
Push your office chair back. Utilize it as your dip station. This one will help strengthen your triceps.
While lying in bed
Your head should be placed beyond the edge of the bed. Hold this position for about a couple of minutes. This will strengthen neck muscles.
These exercises may seem simple and minimal that it would not have any impact to your health. However, the efficiency of an exercise does not rely solely on its intensity. The effects of these exercises will accumulate overtime and you will certainly be able to see a big difference in your body and health!
The holiday season’s celebration starts to wane down slowly and everyone is back to reality as they go back to their daily lifestyle. But I am very much sure that everyone has enjoyed the yuletide season with gifts there and here. And the holiday revelry always comes with plenty of eating spree of all sorts that is hard to resist. It became the number one reason why many are gaining weight at the start of every year and that is a statistical fact from many research and studies.
This made clubs and gym memberships to hit high in demands which made many companies to take advantage of the sudden influx by enticing them with discount advertising. Nonetheless, it is always a possibility that you’re going to have huge savings with discount codes and coupons that could give you a breather in making your monthly financial budget. Especially right now were the global financial crisis is still looming around.
On the other hand, not only those involve in physical fitness programs were you can save but also manufacturers of natural and organic foods and food supplements. But just make sure that you scrutinize what you are buying considering that there are a lot of bogus products that you can find in the market right now. That is because of the high demands and the change of mindset by many individuals in consuming healthy foods.
I’ve been blogging and advocating about healthy balanced diet and some practical weight loss tips and that everyone should not expect to lose weight overnight. The process of losing weight the right way is not that easy yet it’s not that hard as you think it is. We just have to look into the right combination of diet and workout regimen whether it is high intensity or low intensity. And recently, there have been a bunch of weight loss camp coming out in order to deter boredom, as replacement in going to a routine workout in the gym.
We all know and statistics have shown that most of those who lost interest in continuing their workout are due to the lack of determination from the start. Repetitive regimen is another factor that might lead into discontinuing the whole program itself. And a fitness retreat to break that monotony might be the good solution and perhaps the only way to shed that excess flab in a healthy manner.
A weight loss retreat is what I’m talking about because the four walls of the gym could be a humdrum but being in nature and making changes in the environment should help you attain your desired weight and losing inches in your waist. But don’t forget that losing weight and getting rid of the unwanted fats is not just about training and food but also having a good rest is important as well. A relaxing environment will add to a restful sleep and in regaining your strength and endurance.
Many still don’t understand how important our skin and the big role that it has in our body. Not to mention that it is the largest organ that protects what’s inside our body yet many still neglect taking care of the skin. Although nowadays there are so many predisposing factors that contributes to the already saturated cause whether it is intentional or not but still it damages the skin. The most common cause that damages our skin is the over exposure to the rays of the sun. It does not only cause skin cancer but it can also make our skin sag.
And skin care is a big business at this time. It’s the same reason also why there’s a lot of advertising strategies on how to get rid of sagging skin. But the good news is that there’s something and many ways that we can do to tighten our skin naturally or through cosmetic treatment. There are a lot of solutions, indeed, that you can find and discover when you search in the internet that offers promising results in just several days or few months. You just have to be extra careful in choosing what you think is the best for your skin.
All I’m saying is that, what’s best to others many not be perfectly working for your skin and may perhaps cause more harm than get rid of those cellulites. And before you go crazy about it, it’s always best to seek advice and talk to your doctor first for additional information on cellulite prior to doing crazy stuff by yourself or recommended by your friends. There may be tons of tips so you can avoid it yet first hand information from experts always gives you peace of mind in the end. Knowing that you are doing it for your skin and the effect may stay for quite sometime.
Working in a medical health facility is great especially that you are well compensated but everything doesn’t come with crown jewels and that it has its own issues as well. And there are two in the many things that we need to constantly update; one is we have to maintain a certain number of CEU’s for our license and that’s only one part in our painstaking annual license renewal then second, we also have to pass a complete medical exam. The last one is tricky since we are working in the frontline and we should have all the necessary first line of defense.
So just this morning, one of my colleagues had his set of laboratory test then he found out that his total cholesterol is way beyond the normal limits, including his LDL (the bad cholesterol). So he is now contemplating of having a healthy lifestyle and a diet plan that is low in fat and carbohydrates but high in protein. Then one colleague suggested that can try using syntrax nectar protein supplement for a start since it is a convenient and portable way to get his protein needs considering the type of work that we are into. He also said that it is a good option out there because it is made from whey protein which is the easiest type of protein that can rebuild our muscles faster.
