It’s 90 days to summer and timing is perfect to get fit!
5 Steps to a beautiful summer you!!
To get started lets review a blog by Smoothie Essentials Happy New Year!
Focusing on the first two (of course the whole blog is useful and applicable)
1. Drink water – plain filtered water
“Yoga is a transformational tool that can help you in every area of your life. But to gain the most benefit, you have to do it every day. Even if you only have 10 minutes, it counts.”
In 21 Days yoga – with the 21 Day Yoga Challenge – can become part of your regular daily exercise routine and your first step in a sculpted summer beautiful you that will last as long as your daily commitment lasts.
4. Eat Healthy – Healthy Food Diet: 7 Day Clean Eating Challenge
“Do you feel like your diet needs a fresh start? When life happens and you abandon healthy food in favor of whatever is nearby or comes out of a packet or pouch, it’s time for a “clean” break. That’s why we’re bringing you SHAPE’s 7-Day Clean Eating Challenge. It’s easy and the payoffs include skyrocketing energy, weight loss, better control over your appetite, and even better looking skin.”
A great start to summer is with a healthy life style. Healthy recipes are available almost every where. Simple in season eating is easy and healthy. High fiber, green rich diets can lengthen lives and strengthen bodies.
5. Sleep – The Importance of Sleep
The Harvard Women’s Health Watch suggests six reasons to get enough sleep:
- Learning and memory: Sleep helps the brain commit new information to memory through a process called memory consolidation. In studies, people who’d slept after learning a task did better on tests later.
- Metabolism and weight: Chronic sleep deprivation may cause weight gain by affecting the way our bodies process and store carbohydrates, and by altering levels of hormones that affect our appetite.
- Safety: Sleep debt contributes to a greater tendency to fall asleep during the daytime. These lapses may cause falls and mistakes such as medical errors, air traffic mishaps, and road accidents.
- Mood: Sleep loss may result in irritability, impatience, inability to concentrate, and moodiness. Too little sleep can also leave you too tired to do the things you like to do.
- Cardiovascular health: Serious sleep disorders have been linked to hypertension, increased stress hormone levels, and irregular heartbeat.
- Disease: Sleep deprivation alters immune function, including the activity of the body’s killer cells. Keeping up with sleep may also help fight cancer.
