We all want to be healthy. But sometimes all those popular workout programs and meal plans are not what we can stick to. Whether you are injured or have diabetes-related complications or just can’t spend that much time in the gym, don’t feel bad. Just please try to focus on long-term healthy changes that will make you feel better without following any tough fitness model rules. Here’re some tips for you to keep in mind: 1. Find the right motivation and choose specific goals to see even small wins. 2. Say “no” to products with empty sugar calories and excessive fat and try to eat your own cooked meals instead of pre-made ones. Also, it’s better to check if you are getting the right nutrition for your needs by regularly tracking what you eat. 3. Everyday walking – try at least 20 or 30 minutes of walk and you will see the difference for your metabolism and mood for sure. You can also try different apps and play a game of reaching a bigger number of steps by the day. 4. Was up half the night? You really need to sleep 7-8 hours every night because sleep plays a vital role in good health and keeps everything in optimal balance. Don’t ignore that. 5. Think positive! When you think positive, good things happen. Yes, some changes take time but remember that challenging situations are a part of life. Don’t give up and keep smiling!
