The Keys to Total Fitness for Busy People

 

For most people, fitness brings up images of running at the park or lifting weights at the gym to have a slimmer waistline and bigger biceps. However, you could have both of those things and still live in abject misery if you don’t take the whole body and mind into consideration. That sounds exhausting, as well as time-consuming, which means it probably won’t fit into your busy schedule. Think again and take a look at what you need to do and how to make it work.

 

Enjoy Your Exercise

 

As one celebrity fitness coach tells Shape magazine, “there’s not one magic workout schedule that will make you burn fat and build lean muscle.” So what do you need? A bit of cardio and a bit of strength training. Activities like team sports, ultimate Frisbee, and yoga meet those requirements. Choose something you like and the fun will keep you coming back for more.

 

Take Some “Me” Time

 

It’s perfectly okay to spoil yourself as it may do you some good. There’s no reason for this to be expensive or time-consuming if you’re willing to think creatively. Imagine an at-home spa where you and a friend take turns giving each other hot rock massages followed by skincare treatments, all while sipping on your tea with relaxing music playing in the background.

 

Learn to Eat Healthfully

 

That exercise isn’t going to do much good if your lunch comes from a taco truck. It’s time for a change, but cooking brings up images of slaving over a stove for hours on end while your tummy grumbles. Banish the thought because you don’t need much time to cook balanced meals, and you’ll save a lot by doing your lunch in large batches that you put in the freezer then pull out later to fill up a Tupperware container that you bring to work.

 

Stay Hydrated

 

There are many people who don’t drink enough water, and the consequences for their health are dire. If you’re one of them, there’s an easy solution: Bring it with you wherever you go and take regular sips when you’re thirsty. You may have read that you need eight glasses a day, but there are very few doctors and fitness instructors who agree with that assessment, as the correct amount depends on your size and how active you are. Just pay attention to your body.

 

Spend Time Outdoors

 

You need sunshine; otherwise, your body can’t produce enough vitamin D, which is vital to warding off conditions such as osteoporosis to depression. That’s just the beginning when it comes to the benefits of nature, says a writer with ZLiving. In numerous studies, the outdoors been shown to improve people’s mood while helping them focus, and all it takes is a lunch break outside. You can also get the fresh air by drinking your coffee outside in the morning.

 

Meditate to Find Calm

 

Have you got five minutes? That’s enough for a mindful session that will not only calm your nerves but give your self-esteem a boost and put you to bed on time. There’s little mystery as to how it works: By slowing down your breathing and focusing your mind on your bodily sensations, you cut short the “fight or flight” response and engage your parasympathetic nervous system, which slows down your heart rate and gives you a relaxing reset.

 

Practice Your Hobby

 

Sometimes all you need is something to look forward to at the end of the day, and activities such as playing the guitar, knitting scarves, or painting portraits deliver that and a whole lot more, says lifestyle website Your Zen Life. Becoming skilled at a hobby naturally makes you more confident while also sparking the creative side of your brain.

 

It does take some effort fitting these activities into your schedule, but it’s worth it if you value your happiness and sanity. Reflect on what you do with your time, then make a few adjustments. You can fit them in.

Physical and Emotional Self-Care for Improved Overall Well-Being

Physical and Emotional Self-Care
for Improved Overall Well-Being

Habits of self-care are crucial to overall well-being–associated actions, behaviors and thoughts help to avoid serious illnesses and to improve physical and emotional health by providing our bodies and minds with peace and balance in an increasingly over-stimulating world.

 

“Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos .Aenean non turpis vitae ligula tristique sagitt isras varius erat pulvinar eros pretium”

Depending on specific personal and professional commitments and priorities, no two strategies for the execution of self-care will look exactly the same. However, all people share the need for physical and emotional well-being, and many find that one cannot be achieved without the other.

For example, physical self-care ensures the health, energy and focus necessary to cultivate meaningful relationships, perform sufficiently at work and engage in personal reflection — all practices that strengthen one emotionally. And, consequently, emotional self-care produces the confidence, self-worth, and motivation necessary to exercise regularly and eat well, which enhance physical growth. When physical and emotional self-care habits are formed together, the associated positive and productive actions, behaviors and thoughts intertwine and gain momentum, like a snowball rolling down a hill, enabling one to reach new levels of overall well-being.

Practice physical and emotional self-care habits together

 

Practicing both forms of self-care together means that the two require equal attention. Don’t go physically wild by spending hours at the gym at the expense of other necessary or enjoyable portions of your day. You will burn out quickly and your mind will suffer.

 

At the same time, don’t neglect physical and nutritional effort in favor of emotional stimulation. Such activities will become unamusing without the stamina for full participation. Rather, consider physical and emotional self-care to be one in the same, begin both at square one and progress naturally.

 

Increase the level of physical activity in your everyday life and accomplish more in your limited time by walking to class, work or the store. If prohibited by time or distance, park farther away from your destination or exit the bus a stop early and always take the stairs. Journal each adjustment: When reviewing entries at the end of each day, you will be surprised at how much opportunity for exercise was already woven into your existing routine, which will embolden you to hunt for more.

 

Forget the old notion that achieving physical fitness means running on a treadmill or lifting weights in a gym all the time. Pursue holistic health by choosing activities that not only exercise your body, but also engage your mind and spirit, such as dancing or gardening. Examine your personal interests and incorporate options that appeal to you. Perhaps you will acquire a new hobby or skill along the way.

 

Also abandon the idea that to eat healthily is to either starve or confine yourself to unappetizing food. Continue to enjoy delicious meals, while expanding your creativity, by exploring strategies for creating more nutritious varieties of your favorite recipes. For example, trim fat from meats and reduce the amount of butter, sugar or salt previously used. Swap whole-milk products for low-fat dairy options. Incorporate a few cups of broccoli, carrots or spinach into casseroles or kinds of pasta.

 

To remain accountable to new habits and cultivate stronger relationships, invite friends and family to join you on your quest for physical and emotional well-being. Swap recipes, host weekly potlucks, form a weekend kickball team. Encourage, challenge and celebrate one another. The addition of the community will transform your health journey.

 

Prevent illness and heal your body

 

Adopting habits of physical and emotional self-care may protect you from serious health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension or depression. Additionally, these habits also encourage healing of bodily systems suffering from previous damage. For those recovering from addiction, routine self-care is crucial for maintaining sobriety and restoring health. Exercise, for example, relieves stress induced by feelings of withdrawal, releases endorphins for a mood-boosting natural high and strengthens the mind-body connection.

 

Physical and emotional self-care heals the body, helps to prevent serious illness and strengthens overall well-being for a happier, healthier life.

Routine:

15 minutes after I wake up I drink a warm cup of water and a slice of Lemon

I suffer from Back and Neck problems after suffering an Auto Accident 11 years ago, therefore I HAVE  to do my Yoga stretches on a daily basis before starting my day…One of my favorite stretches and method is: http://www.yogawithadriene.com
