Staying in shape is a hard thing to do. It is very easy to lose yourself in carbs and ruin your body shape. Good news is, it’s not impossible and if you follow a few simple steps, you could easily stay in shape!
The following simple change of habits will help you keep your body in shape:
Don’t just spend your entire day looking at a laptop screen and sitting at one place. Move your legs around. Take small breaks to walk around the office. Get up to drink water.
If you don’t have the time to go to gym, just stay active during the day and you will be burning calories without even realizing.
Stairs over Elevators
Yes, we know it’s time consuming, not to mention exhausting but it burns calories and keeps your legs in shape.
Avoid taking the elevator and go towards stairs. You will notice the difference because it’s actually a great exercise.
Do your own Chores
It can be very tempting, giving other people your chores but don’t. Do your own laundry, cook your own food and clean up your own place. It’s a complete work out in itself. Squeeze in a couple of squats while cooking, a couple of push ups while doing laundry.
You are what you Eat
It’s true. Cut down on carbs, salt and fatty food. Avoid ordering takeout and going for food with artificial sugars in it. Eat a healthy, balanced diet. And try not to consume more than 2000 calories in a day.
Don’t snack on junk food, switch it with fruits and vegetables.
Walk, walk, walk
Either before you hit the bed or in the early morning, go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be long and strenuous. Just a brisk pace for 20-30 minutes will do you a world of good.
