Summer season is almost here and you might wish to get rid of that winter belly you’ve got growing on you. Here you’ll be finding some tips and tricks on how to get in shape. Don’t worry, these doesn’t include going to a gym or doing yoga at home, but a few tweaks in your daily routine that will turn your life around.
Here are 8 things you can do to Get in shape for this season
1. Clean Breakfast
A healthy and hearty breakfast is must! Try to have food which have a high fiber and protein quotient rather than having food high in carbohydrates and fats. Avoid items like parathas, puri, rice, pakodas, etc., instead try to shift on cornflakes, oats, eggs, salads, fruits, etc.
2. Adding more Liquids
Staying hydrated is another crucially important task you should be adding to your to-do list. As 70% of our body is liquid we need to have enough water in a day to function properly. But don’t limit yourself by just having adequate amount of water, try and add healthy smoothies or juices in your lifestyle too.
3. Beauty Sleep
We all need that beauty sleep for a glowing and younger looking skin, but who knew you could also lose weight by having a full night sleep. Scientific studies shows that even if you work hard in the gym or look after your diet, you might end up losing little to no weight if you’re not getting enough sleep. Sleep acts as a reboot to our organs and help them get the well deserved rest they require.
4. Don’t starve yourself
Starving yourself might do more harm than good. Infact, eating after regular intervals of 3-4 hrs is advised, as it keeps your metabolism in action at all times and you end up burning more calories. But this only helps when your snacking on healthy items and not chips and oreo’s.
5. Get the equipment necessary
Including a few equipment might make your journey easier and the food tastier. Try to add an air-fryer and a juicer in your kitchen, so that you get a variety of healthy options to binge on.
6. Deep breathing
You might think that losing weight deals with exercise and food, but this is not the truth. The deep-breathing techniques of yoga can change the brain’s metabolic activity and decrease body mass index. Breathing deeply helps support your central nervous system, counteracts stress by calming your mind and balancing your body. By slowing your metabolism, it aids in digestion, which can help you lose weight. On the other hand, too much stress may cause more rapid, shallow breathing, a quicker heartbeat and tight muscles, which may cause anxiety and less ability to quell cravings.
7. Home-made food
‘Eat what you make’ is a mantra that can do wonders for your body. Try not to consume fast food that is available in a matter of seconds, instead prepare meals at home. But this doesn’t imply that you have to completely cut-out the restaurant food from your life, treat yourself once in a while.
8. Avoid spirits
Studies show that alcohol temporarily inhibits “lipid oxidation”— in other words, when alcohol is in your system, it’s harder for your body to burn fat that’s already there. Practice drinking moderately so that you lose weight.
Whether or not you get in shape, don’t let the scale rule you, after all it’s all just numbers.
