Have you ever thought why people many years ago have slimmer bodies and longer lives? It all boils down to simple living wherein people consume nutritious food, had enough exercise, active daily activities, and lesser stress. Now let’s start with exercise. It’s really hard to find time to exercise because we are so occupied with work, our kids and many other important things to do in life, but we can exercise without really noticing taking away our time for these activities. Once you get up in the morning, our bodies can warm up by doing some a little bit of stretching and jumping jacks even just for five to ten minutes. If you have enough time, climb the staircase instead of the elevator to work on your cardio. If you are a mother attending to the needs of your family and doing all the household chores, you just have to do the work manually as much as possible, as a form of exercise, such as washing the dishes and washing some of your delicate clothes.

When it comes to eating, it is always best to start changing your poor practices right from shopping to your supermarket, by selecting foods that are less processed and less refined. Instead of grabbing soda, chips, chocolate bars, and noodles, select easy to peel, sliced and eat foods like berries, grapes, banana, apples, and oranges, which can keep you going while you’re on the go. It is really enjoyable eating in front of the TV, but if you want to lose weight, never eat while watching your favorite show or movie, because it will take away your attention from the time and amount of food you’re eating, and even creates a feeling of craving for more. Don’t deprive yourself too much, you can consume your favorite food in moderation, and avoid stocking food in your fridge which will entice you to try them not until they’re all consumed.
