Healthy Fitness Tips to Keep your Body Fit

Updated on September 17, 2015

9 Fitness Tips

One way of attaining a healthy and fit body is to move your body even if your sleeping on your pillow.

Move it

Make it a daily habit to find ways to move your body. You can climb stairs, chase your kids or play around with them, toss balls with friends, walk around at the mall and do a window shopping, walk your dog at the park, do household chores or do your own laundry. Just do anything that moves your limbs, because it not only a good fitness routine but also it takes away stress.

Think "move" in small increments of time. It doesn't have to be an hour in the gym or a 45 minute aerobic dance class or tai chi, kickboxing, belly dancing, jogging around the city, doing sports, swimming in your pool back and forth, and lifting heavy bars. But that's great when you're up to it.

Cut back on fat

Avoid the obvious such as fried foods, burgers and other fatty meats like pork, bacon, ham, salami, ribs and sausage. Dairy products such as chesse, cottage cheese, milk and cream should be eaten in low-fat versions.

Nuts and sandwich meats, mayonnaise, margarine, butter and sauces should be eaten in limited amounts. Most are available in lo-fate versions suchs substitutre butter, fat-free cheeses and mayonnaise

Throw out the cigarrette

The jury is definitely in on this verdict. Ever since 1960 when the Surgeon General announced that smoking "is harmful to your health," Americans have been reducing their use of tobacco products that kill.

No more arguments. Quit it now!!!!

Reduce stress

Easier said than done, stress busters come in many forms. some techniques recommended by experts are to think positive thoughts.

Spend 30 minutes a day doing something you like walk on the beach, at the mall or in the park, read a good book, visit a friend and talk some joke stories, watch a funny movie, get a massage, have a facial or a haircut or go fishing with your kids or friends. Take time to smell the fragrance of beuatiful roses. Avoid conversing to people who have negative attitudes. If you'll be doing all the time you will definitely ease your mind and reduce your stress level.

Wear your seat belt

There are countless of car accidents happened and many have died because of not wearing their seat belts. We also know that the sole purpose of having seat belts in our car is to protect us from serious injuries or death. It is wise to wear your seat belts all the time even if you're a good driver or driving slowly. It would matter how fast or slow because you're never know when accidents happen.

Why I included this? because if we live long without injuires then I could say that we are fit.

Protect yourself from pollution

If you're living in the city, it would be very hard to keep away from it but if you do live in the province like in the mountains then you will be breathing fresh air. It also be nice to live along side of the beach to have that great feeling in the morning.

If you can't live in a smog-free environment, at least avoid smokefilled rooms, high traffic areas, breathing in highway fumes and exercisng near busy thoroughfares.

It would be a good idea to plant lots of shrubbery in your yard like roses that you can smell, and green ornamentals even if you just use large pots and plastic containers. Also add in your yard some herbal plants such as Aloe Vera, Kammunngay, and Taheebo.

Avoid excessive drinking

Most of us know that too much of anything is not good especially when in comes to drinking. Recent studies show a glass of wine or one drink a day (two for men) can help protect against heart disease, more than that can cause other health problems such as liver, and kidney disease and cancer.

Floss your teeth

Recent studies make a direct connection between longevity and teeth flossing. Nobody knows exactly why. Is it perhaps because people who floss tend to be more health conscious than poeple who don't? Just do it.

Keep a positive outlook

There's a difinitive connection between living well and healthfully and having a cheerful outlook on life. It's a fitness exercise that you can begin today. Decide to have a brighter outlook. Take that joyful walk every day.

      Great Article, body movement is so important for overall body, mind & soul health. Not to mention keeping the body fat off which is reponsible for much illness and disease in the world.

      I've found through walking I've been able to control my overall body weight including the overall body fat. I even walk in the winter... Just bundle up real well and try to walk around the sucker holes if possible.

      Walking like use of aerobic fitness equipment can put your Target Heart Rate at the proper level to maximally burn fat. But walking is easier on the body and gets the same thing accomplished. Also, light weights with high repetition for upper body can maintain muscle tone, while sculpting and burning more body fat.

      Overall body weight effect... More body fat gone from the body "If in cardio Target Heart Rate." If fat stores in the lower back, hips, stomach, thighs, buttocks, etc., these areas will reduce in size as you continue your daily walks!

      Good article and if you enjoy my articles, I'd appreciate the follow. Thanks again for spreading your movement, nutrion, toxin tips etc. Good health to you and your family!
