Most of the people I do come across do look for change in their lifestyle, especially when alarm bells start ringing. One of the things I do tell people is that when it comes to your health you have to be Proactive and not reactive.
Being proactive is taking the responsibility of being healthy both in the Mind and body. One does not need to do drastic alteration in the lifestyle to get back to being in the pink of health.
Small gradual changes which over a period of time can bring in some drastic improvements in your other critical area as well.
Even though you have heard this a Zillion times, take a fresh look at yourself in the mirror right now and ask how healthy you are? If the answer is No then read on
Begin your day with a healthy breakfast:
Having an awesome breakfast is not a choice but a must which I strongly do advocate. A good breakfast in my books will be something which is protein rich with some healthy fats.
This not only increases long term satiety but also ensures that your mind and body is replenished with the right energy for the gruelling day ahead.
The window period for a good breakfast does close within two hours after your wake up time. So you need to plan accordingly to maximise the biggest benefit from this.
Interval training is your best bet:
Each one of us has the lean and tight physique within ourselves which we always aspire for. The only things which does come between us and getting to the lean version is a layer of fat.
Doing 20-25 minutes of interval training 2-3 times a week is the most effective way to incinerate fat and begin to show some definition in the body. Even though this is not the norm, if you are someone who is quite active physically you can get to your fitness goals with this as the bare minimum.
Keep your sleep schedule for 7-8 hours:
If your wellbeing is a priority then you should gun for 7-8 hours of sleep no matter how hectic your life is. Remember all our gains both at the physical and Emotional level does happen during this time and not everyone can get away with anything less than 4-5 hours.
Your anabolic hormonal responses do occur only during this time and skewing with this can have catastrophic consequence for both men and women.
Work your schedule around your 7-8 hours of sleep and in no time you will get there.
Visualisation sets you up to win big:
Most focus only on the body when it comes to being healthy, remember that your mind is as powerful. Taking some time out especially before you hit the sack will more than help you in the other specific area you are working at.
Take 10 -15 minutes every night to visualise very specifically you being healthy and how much of a difference it can make to the quality of your life.
Make sure you really set the scene and go through every step as if it’s actually happening in real-time in your mind. It’s a great way to help make those goals a reality.
