Fitness is by definition a set of attributes that one possesses that makes them suitable to perform certain physical activities. So, by this definition are you fit? And how fit are you? The measure of fitness of an individual is directly related to more than just how much they perform each physical activity, but more so how well they do. Generally the more speed and endurance a person has before burning out is a pretty great measure as to how fit the person is as well. The overall, health and wellness of an individual is the part that some people usually find themselves playing catch-up on. It is very important to have both health and fitness in order to acheive a balanced lifestyle.

Fit is not a destination, it is a way of Life!

Some easy lifehacks to quickly achieving a more fit and healthy lifestyle are:

  • Eat Breakfast

We can't stress enough that breakfast is without a doubt the most important meal of the day, skipping this meal is a one way ticket into the land of the unfit. Symptoms include, but are not limited to lack of energy, mental and physical fatigue, under performance and slowed metabolism, among-st other things. It is also important that this breakfast be a healthy one, try including whole grains and antioxidants in your breakfast plan each morning.

  • Plan your meals

This is important so as to get your body on a schedule, thus breaking the old habits a lot faster and more effectively. Planning your meals will help you also with portion control. You can also use this tip to get a grasp of your nutrient intake as well. Make sure each portion has the right amount of nutrients as per your daily requirements, this goes for vitamins as well as minerals and dietary fiber intake along with the overall calorie count.

  • Stay Hydrated

Hydration is key, because the body is made of 75% water and more so than people are aware, the body is in need of hydration. The proposed 6-8 glasses of water that is recommended is actually minimum case. The body requires a bit more depending on the amount of energy each individual exhausts every single day. So, an easy way to keep track is to simply have some water before as well as after every meal. Water though is a tricky thing as if you have too much during the night time it will cause you to become bloated. Therefore, the best time to consume a lot of water is during the daytime. At night simply have one glass before bed. Also, try putting lemon in your water as this also adds antioxidants as well as valuables minerals and vitamin C to the water and in turn your body.

  • Keep up a vitamin regime

Supplements are a necessary evil. Invest in a vitamin supplement made as natural as possible and is packed filled also with probiotics. In a lot of cases many people are lacking minerals and don't even know it. Go to the Doctor or to a nutritionist and have them asses your nutritional health and take it from there.

  • Buy food as organic as you can get

We don't need to explain why you should make the investment into more organically produced food, it is pretty self explanatory. Organically produced food is processed cleaner and faster by the body a it contains less chemicals if any.

  • Workout for at least 15 minutes a day

Do not let your body become complacent in any mode. Everyday it is important to push your body just a little to keep it in the most optimal performance. Even if you are just walking a lot further than usual, this will go a long way in keeping your metabolism up as well as your blood flow.

  • Try to meditate for at least 5 mins a day

It is a proven fact that meditation helps with one's overall health and well being. We suggest incorporating it as a lifestyle.
