Slim Down Your Daily Coffee
Removing just two teaspoons of sugar from your daily cup of coffee or tea may not seem like a big deal, but it can save you 32 extra calories a day or three extra pounds a year. That’s right.
Take A Time Out
Too much stress could be thwarting your weight loss efforts. Cortisol is the stress hormone in your body that glues itself onto fat and keeps it on your hips, abs and thighs. To decrease cortisol and decrease fat, try this quick time out every day (especially when stressed): sit comfortably, close your eyes, and choose a mantra such as ‘relax’ or ‘let go’ and repeat it in your mind as you take slow, deep breaths for about 10 minutes.
Get Some Sunshine
Getting about 15 minutes of sun exposure every day will not only help your absorb Vitamin D, it can also help boost your mood and energy level, all of which can help you stay on track with a weight loss program.
Drink Water Before Meals
A lot of people can confuse hunger with thirst, so regularly sipping on water can help keep hunger and cravings at bay. And if you get bored with water, try sipping on green tea or water with a fresh fruit or vegetable slice.
Inculcating these simple habits in your life could save you a world of trouble and help keep you on track to looking and feeling fabulous.
