Juggling jobs, relationships, social obligations, bills, and staying on top of a healthy gym routine is a lot to
Here are a few tips for making menâ€™s lives a little bit better from morning to night:
Eat breakfast: Eating breakfast everyday keeps your metabolism in check, your weight down, and your cravings at bay. Filling up on fibre early on keeps you satisfied throughout the day. Recommended are oatmeal with dried fruits, nuts, and flaxseed oil.
Snack like a squirrel: You donâ€™t have to hoard nuts for the winter, but grabbing a handful during the middle of the day can actually keep you healthier than eating a bag of chips or waiting until dinner to satisfy your food cravings. Full of omega-3 fatty acids, these are the type of proteins we look for in our diets from fish, also known as good fats.
Sweat is your best friend: While walking to the office or public transit is eco-friendly and cost efficient, chances are you donâ€™t get the full cardio effect until you do your time on the treadmill. Sweat away your toxins and reduce your blood pressure and risk of heart attack by switching up your routine; the wetter the better. Tacking on weight training makes your body work harder to bulk up and lose any extra pounds that may be damaging to your frame. Aside from looking better to your partner, you may feel better and be able to get more sleep, more on that later. For more stamina, find a workout buddy!
Be friendly: When men get stressed, they often clam up and donâ€™t tend to talk about their problems. Women, on the other hand, can usually tell a story until their lips bleed. With more stress in the world than ever, itâ€™s no wonder your body may not be feeling up to par. Grab a beerâ€”or your partnerâ€”and tell them whatâ€™s on your mind, sharing may just save your life or keep the stress away.
Save for a rainy day: A lot of stress comes from financial issues. If you are able, sock away some of your paycheck every month to save for a rainy day or an emergency by investing some of that worth in a separate savings account you can run to if you need to, but put your own limits on how you are allowed to spend it. Down the road, merely thinking about how to spend that extra cushion you set aside can make even the gloomiest day perk up a bit.
Floss your teeth: We have all been conditioned to learn that brushing your teeth twice a day is the normal but in order to keep your oral health at its best, go deeper with floss. Your best bet is to floss before bedtime to clean the bacteria from the hard to reach spots in your mouth so it doesnâ€™t grow into a problem overnight.
Sleep like a baby: If you are a parent, you understand the importance of getting a child to go to bed at a certain time every night in order to keep their mind and body stable and free from grouchiness. You should treat your sleeping patterns the same way. Set a bed time and keep itâ€”at least during the work weekâ€”and get at least seven hours of sleep. Professionals advise that sleeping regularly can stave off calories and stress because being groggy can incur bad decisions like eating greasy food or sucking down your usual morning coffee in half the time.
