Life gets very busy in Nigeria. As much as we may want to be fit and healthy, we don’t always get the chance to hit the gym. On such days, don’t feel bad, as there are organic ways to make up for it.
Though nothing can really take place of the health benefits of a good workout, here are some simple tips that could keep you healthy outside the gym.
4. Drink a cup of green tea:
There are so many health benefits of sipping green tea throughout the day. Aside from being linked to lowering the chances of cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Type 2 diabetes, a Japanese study discovered that regularly consuming green tea can help reduce your chances of cardiovascular disease (CVD). It also has a decent amount of caffeine, which is great for your mid-afternoon slump.
5. Listen to Lively Music:
People usually listen to the kind of music that matches the mood they’re in, rather than listening to songs for the kind of mood they envision. It was discovered music can actually lower stress levels, ease pain and relieve blood pressure. If you’re not someone who can work with music on, listen to it while you can, such as in the car on the way to work or during your lunch break.
6. Clean Your House:
Cleaning your home or apartment regularly is another way to ensure that you stay active during the week. Cleaning your house can incorporate a variety of muscle groups without you even realizing it. Dragging around a heavy vacuum isn’t an easy task, especially if you are going up and down stairs. Try to squeeze your buns every time you take a step. While you’re taking a break, try tightening your abdominal muscles for a period of time throughout each hour.
