Natural Ways to Benefit Your Exercise Routine

Exercise and nutrition are a big part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and the article below explains a few simple lifehacks to help you benefit your life  

  • Stay Active

Little things like walking up and down stairs, climbing in and out of a bathtub or bending down to pick something up are ways we move our bodies without even realizing it. If you are struggling with exercise, start with 5 minutes of low impact stretching a day. Conditioning your body is a slow process. The point is just to keep moving and stay as active as possible. Taking little walks and setting a timer on your phone to remind you to stretch throughout the day are great ways to start being more active!

  • Detox

If your body is overloaded with toxins from your environment or the processed, unnatural foods you eat, your body will struggle to maintain health. Detoxing with natural supplements such as bentonite clay or activated charcoal may give you the extra boost you need to achieve better health or lose weight.  Be sure you check with your healthcare provider before starting any supplement and outweigh the risks and benefits with your physician. Also be sure you are using a 100% pure, organic product!

  • Sleep

Adequate rest and sleep are essential to being healthy. When your body is run down, exhausted and tired it cannot function at 100%!  Your body will be stressed out and that can cause increased cortisol levels and lead to weight gain. Rest when you are tired. Sleep the recommended amount of at least 8 hours a night.

  • Manage Stress

If you are constantly stressed, your body is 9going to react to that. If your body goes into survival mode, it is going to slow your metabolism, store fat and not work properly. High stress is one of the worst things you can do to your body. Practicing healthy habits like meditation, having a positive mindset, avoiding negative people and performing relaxation techniques are great ways to manage stress and help you maintain a healthy weight.
