So here you are browsing the web, looking up funny cat videos and all the while thinking you should really get started on the good health routine you promised yourself back at New Year’s Eve. Problem is you don’t know how to start. While you may have come across tons of terminology rich articles on the web, here you won’t be required to be a medical student to understand the simple yet effective tips and tricks we will lay out for you.
Get your water in.
Water is your body’s best friend. More than half of all your body mass comes straightaway from the water in your system and therefore it makes sense to keep yourself well hydrated all day every day. 6 to 8 glasses (that makes about 2 Litres) of water everyday is what scientists recommend for your body to function optimally. You don’t have to literally drink all of it, you can also get water from juicy fruits and vegetables like cucumbers and watermelons.
Move from junk food to natural food
We agree pizzas and burgers and sodas all taste a lot better than salads and plain water. But all these fast foods are what they are: fast. They were not meant to replace your mainstay diet of natural foodstuff like fruits, vegetables and cereals. A pizza and a soda here and there doesn’t hurt but long-term consumption augments risks of Diabetes, Hypertension, Liver and Kidney disorders. So, stick to the basics and restrict fast foods to an occasional cheat meal option.
Manage your down-time
Sleep is one of the most under-rated health promoters. Getting your daily 8 hours in is proven to help your body and brain recharge for the next day. Additionally taking 20 minute ‘Power Naps’ occasionally while you work boosts your brain power and productivity substantially. So, prioritize sleep over late night parties and all-nighters because both of them leave you drained.
Get your body moving
The most well-known way to fitness is exercise, which is also the least popular. We hate the idea of exerting ourselves every day, but we also know that good health doesn’t come easy. So, what can we do to make it fun as well as beneficial for weight loss. One of the most popular ways of blending fun with usability is Muay Thai.
Muay Thai is Thailand’s national sport prioritizing close combat techniques using just your body. It’s simple, effective for self-defense, fun and makes you feel like an MMA champion. Training in Muay Thai at muaythaiworlds.com is also just as easy as learning off YouTube video tutorials. For the travel savvy generation, you can also visit the motherland of Muay Thai and train firsthand from recreational camps, ‘Nak Muay’ gyms and foreigner focused training camps. The intensive exercise will not only fill up your daily physical activity quota, but the strain on your resources will also promote the need of more water intake, a healthier diet than just junk food, and deeper better sleep. So, if you need to accomplish all of the above with just one regime, we highly recommend Muay Thai.
