No matter what your fitness goals are, it is difficult to make changes in our bodies if we are only looking at a long-term process. One of the best strategies to avoid this, though, is to chart a few small changes you can make every day. These fitness tips will help you become more fit, without making you think about huge changes or drastic diets.
3 easy fitness tips
Start Your Morning with A Glass of Water or Cup of Tea
Some of us may not have time to sip a cup of tea and read the newspaper each morning, but we all still have time to drink 1 glass of water or a quick cup of tea while we are getting ready for our day. This is a tip that is very common in Asian countries to help improve digestion.
Drinking 1 glass of water or a cup of tea before you start getting ready for the day will immediately kickstart your metabolism. It helps your digestive system function properly, and improve your daily hydration levels.
All three of these improvements are very helpful for any of your fitness goals!
Sleep on a Memory Foam Pillow
The quality of your sleep is vital to improving your health and fitness overall. One of the easiest ways to do this is by purchasing the best memory foam pillow you can find. A memory foam pillow will improve your sleep quality. Also, it improves the health of your neck, back, and spine.
Conventional pillows put you in a very awkward sleeping position, where you will likely strain your neck, back or spine. Over time, this can cause severe issues in your bodies such as disc issues, or scoliosis. If you sleep for 8 hours per day in your bed, you are spending about 1/3rd of your life in bed. There’s no reason not to properly invest in your sleeping space!
Switch to Anaerobic Cardiovascular Training
Chugging away at 30 minutes of jogging on the treadmill might sound like the only type of cardio in the world, but it certainly is not. Believe it or not, you can get the same amount of effectiveness in 10 minutes of proper interval training, as even 50-60 minutes of steady-state cardio!
Anaerobic training comes in many different forms. One of the most well-known interval training routines is the Tabata interval method, which is a very anaerobic form of training. Tabata intervals have you doing 8 sets of 20 seconds maximum work, with only 10 seconds of rest in between. Tabata intervals were first performed on a stationary bicycle, but can be adapted to fit a variety of different exercises.
Anaerobic training will save you a lot of time in your normal workout routine, and more time to enjoy life!
Improving your general health and fitness levels can be much easier than you ever expected. Take this 3 tips, and add them to your normal routine.
You will quickly see that a few positive changes can make a big difference in your ability to obtain your goals!
