Keep yourself warm, fit, and healthy in this winter season with easy-to-follow five lifestyle tips. Read on to know more!
With the freezing temperature outside and our bodies reluctance to shed off those extra layers of fat, we tend to not give a thought to stay fit and healthy. We keep on eating food for staying up warm but eating healthy is the key. Similarly, there are other simple tips that can keep you warm in this season and are easy-to-follow.
Here are five simple lifestyle changes that’ll help you to stay fit and healthy in the winter season:
Keep a water bottle hand
The most common practice is gulping a glass of water just after eating a heavy meal, which causes indigestion. One should either drink water 30 minutes before a meal that later helps in taking a small plate or drink water 30-45 minutes after a meal, this gives the body time to absorb the nutrients and helps in healthy digestion. It is also important to sip water before, during and after exercise to keep the body hydrated at all times.
Take a walk, please!
During winter, we tend to consume food with more calorific value as our body needs the extra warmth. One of the easiest ways to digest that calorie pumped meal would be walking for at least 15-20 minutes after eating.
Tip: You can walk outside your house for a while or stroll inside your house. It will help break down the meal in your body which further will be easy to digest.
Roll your mat on the floor
Fixing a quick 15-minute exercise in between your busy schedule will help in diluting those extra carbs. You can schedule it in the morning or in the afternoon, but you need to make sure that you only put those shoes on an hour after the meal. In the 15 minutes of exercise, do three sets of -15 jumping jacks, six push-ups, 30 seconds plank, five sit-ups, and five squats.
Tip: It is okay to start with something small. Begin by taking stairs instead of lifts or escalators.
Check on your lifestyle habits
A simple way to keep a regular check on calorie would be to download any fitness app, which logs in all the important details according to your body. After logging in, the fitness app calculates the amount of calorie you can consume in a day, after which you can feed every meal and it shall automatically add the calorie each meal partakes.
