25 ways to healthy living

1. Do not tax your mind. Live for the present. God has called it present because he has “gifted” it for us so that we live it up with full zest. Do not mull over what happened in the past or worry about future You may find it difficult to stop negative thoughts totally, but with time and dedication, you will be able to train your mind to focus on the present naturally.

12. Even if we are not hungry, most of us tend to finish our meals in just 10 minutes. The thing is that our brain does not register that the stomach is full until 20 minutes after it is actually full.
So you should take less food while it is being served, see if you are feeling food, rather than take a whole large plate of food and eventually waste it or eat it with guilt-laden frame of mind. Eating slow is the key. You can also try an Omega 3 supplement 20 minutes before consuming a meal.

13. Break your diet plan a bit: Don’t completely cut yourself from the foods that you like, even if they tend to increase weight. Losing weight shouldn’t be an agony for anybody. Sample an ice-cream or dark chocolate once a week.

14. To develop your eating habits, you first have to know what’s wrong with them. Write down everything you eat for 3 days. Then check your list. Do you add a lot of cheese, butter, creamy sauces or salad dressing? Rather cutting these foods totally from your diet, just cut back on their portions.

15. Don’t make an instant change to healthy diet. Your body may not be conditioned to accept the drastic dietary change. Make modest changes in your way to good diet. So instead of skimmed milk, go for low-fat milk.

16. Eat a healthy breakfast at home possibly before you venture out. If you forego breakfast, there is a sure chance of you being tempted enough to eat junk food at the food mall.

17. What if you go to a party or go for a nightout with friend and pig your heart out? No sweat, the next day, get back yourself on healthy eating. Messing up your dietary plans is fine once in a while but don’t make it a habit.

22. Exercise your mind: A fit body compliments an agile mind. Train your mind to become active by playing mind puzzles, reading, thinking laterally.

23. Do not work out without warm-ups: The reason why you get a hamstring pulled or pain in the muscle after a work-out is due to lack of or less warm ups. Warm-ups are important to reduce the risk of muscle pain and joint pain.
