Most times with our weight gain is on our upper torso which causes labored breathing sitting or lying flat on our backs. So Losing Belly Fat is a tremendous relief to our body and will let us rest more comfortably.

Try some of the following activities to help you get your daily cardio needed to keep your heart, body, and mind in the shape it needs to be in to sleep restfully at night.

  • At lunch for power walk for thirty minutes - you will actually have more energy when returning to work - you will be more alert and relaxed at the same time - plus you burned off that doughnut from the snack break you took at 10:30.
  • After work do one hour of some physical activities - you can make it different everyday if you like: Power Walking - Jogging - Treadmill - Bike Riding - Yoga or Do Push Ups, Sit ups, and Squats to exhaustion in sets with a short recovery in between each set (1 minute).
