What can you do to improve your overall fitness?
Don’t worry; you don’t have to become a competitive bodybuilder to improve your quality of life. Here are a few easy things you can do today to start improving your physical and mental fitness:
Reduce the amount of sugar in your diet
Eating too much sugar can cause weight gain, abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, and serves as a stepping stone to insulin resistance and diabetes.
Try different types of physical activities
Activities like hiking, walking, cycling, jogging or swimming may improve your cardiovascular health and increase your energy levels. Alternating between different types of physical activity is not only beneficial for your body; it helps keep your mind engaged as you look forward to something different each day.
Regular exercise helps regulate your body’s sugar, fat and insulin levels, and strengthens your immune system and muscles. So head outside or to the gym for a regular dose of health.
