For somebody who has a tough job to look after all health resolutions for 2013 go for a toss eventually. This happens as the job seems to get the most of you. You mind stays more focused on job and is under constant stress. This not only destroys your resolutions but also the overall health goes up for a toss.
When under job stress it’s not uncommon to get hunger pangs and hence there is not much time to have a proper meal, you tend to go for anything which is readily available and that stuff is mostly high in calories. So it best to have resolutions which are easy to follow and you can stick to them for the entire year.
So I have set up certain health resolutions for 2013 which I can stick to and also focus on my job (where there is no fix time to come back home and it often gets late)
Health Resolutions For 2013
- Have breakfast like a King , lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar
- Carry a small tiffin box containing dry fruits and nuts for the hunger pangs or protein bars and fibre bars are a great option
- Avoid elevators and escalators wherever possible
- Avoid deep-fried snacks and colas with drinks
- Minimum 4 days work-out in a week
- Have pizza only when you know that you can make time for some heavy work-out for the next two days
- Mostly eat vegetarian.
- Minimum sugar and no chocolates or ice-cream
- Make green tea a part of diet (minimum 2-3 cups in a day)
- Avoid taking a cab for small distances and walk instead.
- Not to sit idle in a place for more than 20 minutes
These simple resolutions can a bring about a great change in your health and will also make you feel more energetic. You can tune your resolutions according to your lifestyle but it’s important that you stick to them. I will try my level best to stick to my health resolutions for 2013.
Watching your shapeless body every morning in the mirror can be a really depressing. You tend to overlook it and just get on with the day. But a man or a woman in his/her prime of health takes pleasure in watching their bodies in the mirror and feel glad that they did not miss out on their workout sessions the previous day.
So finally when you have decided that you are going to do something good for your body have a look around your place and look at what excites you the most. It’s not necessary that you join the neighbor hood gym where every third guy who is coming out has bulging biceps or a girl with a well toned body and you obviously get excited by looking at that. If you are not too much of a gym guy/girl types, the chances of dropping out from the gym are even higher and your strong determination of working your body out will come down crashing.
There are plenty of options available these days. Try to associate workouts with fun, then only it can prove to be real stress buster considering your hard day’s work. Bring out the kid out in you. Ask yourself that if you were a kid right now, what would you have loved doing the most ? Go swimming, martial arts. dancing, kick boxing, badminton, lawn tennis, tables tennis, basket ball, etc. Find out what options your locality offers to you and choose what excites you the most. Aerobics can be real fun or else brisk walking or jogging can be done any time. If you are looking for something more peaceful then there is nothing better than Yoga.
Once you have decided, please avoid going for second opinions. There are people who will try to find out flaws in your personal interests and will pull down your morale. Just go ahead and do it. But all the more it will be tremendously helpful if you could find a partner who shares a common interest. Your probability of attending the activity almost everyday will automatically increase. If your partner is your girlfriend/boyfriend or husband/wife then nothing like it. Not only will you be able to workout together but also will be able to spend some quality time with each other.
So, bring out the kid in you and just do it.
