Give your car a break. Walking feels leisurely, it’s free, and hey! The weather outside seems wonderful, doesn’t it?
Vacuum your abs
Not literally please. What we meant is, sucking your stomach tight whenever you remember to do so. Ab-vacuuming went viral last summer as the hands-off tummy toning workout to try. Trust us, it still works.
Double down on good habits
Good habits like stretching daily, doing yoga, drinking water, getting enough sleep - all these, when done regularly, adds up to getting back in shape.
Here are small goals you can start doing this year:
1. Stretch daily
2. Keep your posture straight
3. Ditch soda for water
4. Say no to junk food
5. Get enough uninterrupted sleep
Keep good food close
Guess what? Being lazy actually plays a bigger role in your food choices - good or bad.
Undergraduates at Saint Bonaventure University, New York tried an experiment where they separated participants into 3. One that sat with apple slices within reach and buttered popcorn roughly six feet away, one with the popcorn within reach and the apple slices six feet away, and another with both snacks within reach.
Results showed, that even though the participants told the researchers they preferred to eat the popcorn over the apples, they ate whatever was nearest to them.
Limit your frozen yogurt
Are you a fro-yo fan like us?
Well, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with eating frozen yogurt. Just keep it at a minimum.
Most yogurt is 20-30 calories per ounce, so calories add up quickly even before toppings are added.
The right amount of yogurt is a fist-sized portion and toppings should only be thumb-sized.
