Holidays are supposed to be a time for happiness and family, but a lot of people see their stress increase and health decrease. HomerNews.com has provided a report of some suggestions that may go a long way in finding the right mix between mental stability and sufficient exercise.
Practicing mindfulness and keeping a food and exercise journal may help an individual get started towards achieving a goal. The report cited research that shows people who maintain a journal after they reach their goal are more likely to keep extra weight off. Consuming healthy foods and sustaining portion control is important because when someone is over-hungry they tend to eat more than usual, says the report.
It is difficult for some people to enjoy physical activity, but the report recommends attempting to make exercise a fun priority. In addition, going outside in the sunshine and fresh air with some company may help someone think more fondly of exercise. The recommended amount of activity a person should take part in is at least 30 minutes of exercise, five times a week, as the report says balancing aerobic exercise with strength and flexibility training is important.
Those who follow a healthy lifestyle may realize lower life insurance premiums in addition to improving their overall well-being.
