Trying to stay in good health can sometimes feel like you’re endlessly running on a hamster wheel. Amidst the exercising, healthy eating and yoga trips, all you really want to do is sit down to a Domino’s pizza and loll around on the settee for a few decades.
Indeed, with the three-pronged prospect of junk food, DVD box sets and comfy chairs, staying healthy just seems downright unappealing.
But without good health, you could be leading your body into a valley of decay, heightening your risk of cancer, blood pressure and obesity.
So, how can you make staying fit less of a chore? How can you make it easy?
Keep yourself clean
An often overlooked factor in effective health is top-notch hygiene. Not only can a hefty dose of cleanliness give you a positive mental attitude, it’ll also stave off germs and bacteria that could lead to serious illness.
For an effective place to stay hygienic, contact a washroom services company to install a washroom with all the trimmings, (bathroom) including antibacterial soap dispensers, toilet wipes and low flow sinks. A high quality bathroom can mean the difference between good hygiene and bad, so invest in the best.
Simple: cut back
For the true lazybones, not sitting down feels like pushing a rock up a hill with your pinkie.
That’s fine for the most part, but only provided you cut back on the rubbish you consume while lounging. (cut back on the junk foods) Simply eating junk food in moderation, along with hefty doses of fruit, veg, nuts and protein, can increase your health to more acceptable levels.
But all you couch potatoes be warned – prolonged sedentary activity lowers blood circulation and could lead to an influx of illness. For minimal blood pumping effort, stand up and wander around during ad breaks on the telly, or head out for a brisk 15-minute walk.
Try the album challenge
Have you got a favorite album? Then it might be exactly what you need to motivate you.
With the majority of albums lasting between 30 and 40 minutes, one listen can equal one bite sized exercise session. Using your rhythms, lyrics and bass lines to motivate you, plough through a few simple exercises to give every portion of your body a workout.
While some people like to work on specific sectors every session, change your workouts frequently to maintain your interest.
Either way, forget you’re exercising and think about the music instead. Just a few attempts at this every week and you’ll be more toned and fighting fit. And after all that, you’ll have earned yourself a sit-down.
