Constant rigorous exercise however can wear you down, both mentally and physically, so it’s important to take it easy from time to time. What can be difficult though is striking a balance between resting your body, and still doing things that can improve your physical wellbeing and general fitness.
Here is our guide to simple lifestyle changes that you can make to maintain a healthier you.
#1 – Kick start your day with lemon tea
We’ve already written about this in great length before, but the effects that lemon in hot water has on your metabolism are overwhelmingly positive. This will help you lose weight, as well as making you feel more awake and ready for the day. It will also kill your coffee craving, as well as improve the condition of your skin markedly. What’s not to love about this?
#2 – Sleep well
It’s important to maintain your body clock by regularly going to bed and waking up at the same time, even at the weekend. Disruptions to your usual pattern can harm your mental alertness, as well as you feeling lethargic and unmotivated for the remainder of the day, even long after you wake up. If that isn’t enough to motivate you then you should probably know that improve sleeping patterns can benefit your sex life, as well as help prevent injuries and depression.
#3 – Take up camping
Spending extended periods of your time outdoors greatly enhances your mood as well as provides a great platform for you to partake in light and non-intensive exercise. For me, hitting the outdoors in a canoe or on a bike are completely unique and thrilling experiences, and being able to finish off a day of activities with a camp meal in the great outdoors truly does complete the experience.
