Now that spring is upon us, the days are getting longer and it is time to start thinking about the future.
While nature is renewing itself with fresh blooms, have you considered a renewal of your own? Let the arrival of this wonderful season motivate you to live a healthier and longer life.
The following health tips should inspire you to embark on a new, fresh beginning for a healthier, more fulfilling life.
Make a plan.
This may be the hardest thing to do for many people, but it is critical. If you plan ahead, it will be easier for you to gain control of your weight and make healthier lifestyle habits. Sit down, make a list of your health and weight loss goals, and generate a plan for how you will achieve them.
Do some spring cleaning.
A cluttered house leads to stress, and stress often leads to poor diet choices, which ultimately lead to obesity. Clean things up around your home and office. Getting organised in your environment will help you get organised in life, and then you will have the right mentality to lose weight and stay healthy!
Ride a bike.
Do you have a bicycle that is just sitting in the garage gathering dust? The spring is a great time to break out the bike and take a spin. Bicycling helps to build solid muscle and is an inexpensive way to work out. It is also a great way to get to and from work, so have you thought about leaving the car at home this spring?
Take a walk.
There is more daylight this time of year, so you have no excuse not to be outside taking in the fresh air and getting some exercise. Walking is a wonderful way to stay in shape and lose weight, and it is also a great stress reliever.
Have some egg whites.
Eggs are incredibly high in protein and are a part of a healthy diet. However, if you need to watch your cholesterol, skip the yolk and go for the whites.
Eat more apricots.
If you are not already snacking on apricots, start now. These delicious fruits are loaded with vitamin A, which converts to beta carotene in the body. Beta carotene is a power antioxidant that promotes the growth and repair of skin tissue and fights sun damage. It has also been linked to some anticancer effects. Vitamin C, iron, copper, potassium, and lycopene are also found in apricots.
