My tips to a healthy lifestyle

In the recent day there is such an 'uproar' about maintaining a healthy diet and keeping fit that I thought I would share my ideas about staying healthy and some tips on your diet. 

Firstly, I think one of the biggest problems is people completely cutting out foods and massively reducing you intake of some food types as it will most probably leave you feeling tired and drained which isn't going to help you on your mission to get fit. 

You need to begin by cutting out all the unnecessary 'bad snacks' you have each day by either completely cutting them out or replacing them with something healthier (apple sprinkled with cinnamon is yummy and healthy) as this is most peoples biggest problem. 

Next you should cut down your portion size while still making sure you have enough to fit the physical requirements of your day. Making sure to have lots of fruit and vegetables throughout your day is always a good idea as they are packed with essential vitamins and will help to keep your energy levels up.

Exercise wise, I would say aim to do something a little bit extra each day, for example this could be walking somewhere that you would normally drive or saying yes to going to that fitness class with your uber-fit friend. Just making these small changes can have a huge impact on the way you look and feel. 

If you plan to go a bit more out there you could schedule in specific gym times or times where you will go for a run, do an ab workout or work a different body part. Having a schedule means you have more of a target to reach which makes it a lot easier to get motivated. 

I hope you enjoyed this post. I am not some crazy fit person so this is probably not suitable for somebody who's going full out with their lifestyle change. 

Thanks for reading

  1. Nothing is more precious than maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I love all the ideas and tips you shared regarding the matter. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables, exercising regularly and taking essential vitamins are the best ways to be healthy, physically. However, we should never forget to give importance to our emotional and mental health by thinking positive things. Thanks for sharing that, Sophie! All the best to you!
