Don’t Salt To Taste
You’ll be surprised to find that you can eliminate salt almost entirely from most recipes. Use fresh spices and herbs to add flavour to your meal instead, and only use salt where it is absolutely necessary. Further, use the natural flavours of fruits and vegetables to enhance the flavor of the food you eat. Moreover, potassium, which can mitigate the negative effects of elevated sodium consumption caused due to salt on blood pressure, can be increased with consumption of fruits and vegetables
Make a Start
You’ve been planning to start exercising forever, but you just haven’t seemed to be able to make a start. Well, before you do, here are just a few things you should take heed of before you get started.
A slow start is often a good start. Exercising too hard or trying to do too much too quickly in the beginning can lead to burnout, serious injuries, and frustration. Instead, you should gradually begin to increase the intensity of your workout.
Variety is the spice of life
Add some variety to your workout. Don’t limit yourself to a single routine. Experiment with different forms of exercise to see which ones appeal to you. Cross train, or engage in an activity like Zumba that keeps you engaged.
Stay on track
Record when you worked out, what type of activities you did, the duration of your workout, and how you felt during your workout. This ensures you don’t fall of track, and also lets you know when you need to spike up your routine
Do What You Like
Enjoy your workout as much as possible. Try to make your workout as enjoyable as possible. Try wearing headphones and listen to energizing music while you work out. Invite a friend or co-worker to join you on a brisk walk.
