Get Moving: Easy Tips to Get Active!
Start by setting 1 goal each day!
Nothing raises your energy faster and more effectively than exercise. Research shows that exercise has a direct, immediate effect on energy. Even a moderate, brief exercise can increase the level of energy producing chemicals in your body. Studies show that, with moderate exercise, the mitochondria literally grow inside and become more efficient. This means the more you move, the more energy your body creates. So, start moving! You'll feel so much better!
Watching what, when and how much you eat!
What? Limit sugary drinks and watch your caffeine intake.
When? Aim for smaller meals every 4-5 hours. Don't wait until you're too hungry. Include healthy snacks to avoid over eating.
How much? Talk to your doctor or do some research.
Find out how many calories you should be eating and keep that track. Start a food journal, to easily monitor your habits. This will make you become more aware of your eating patterns.
