We all know how crazy life can get. Bouncing back and forth between your kids’ activities and juggling work projects can be exhaustive, so it’s no wonder it’s hard to find the time for physical fitness. In fact, studies show that major life changes, such as having children, getting married or starting a new job, can significantly reduce your ability to maintain everyday exercise. Inactivity is bad for your physical and mental health and can lead to numerous problems.
So, how do we find time to stay fit with so many time vampires in our lives? The NeoraFit™ Weight Management and Wellness Program is a state-of-the-art whole-body program that helps you make lifestyle changes that can easily be incorporated into your day, while allowing you to enjoy life and make healthier choices.
Give Your Body the Slight Edge
Based on Neora CEO and Founder Jeff Olson’s Slight Edge philosophy, here six healthy habits you can start today with the NeoraFit Weight Management and Wellness Program to help you get back into shape and stay that way.
Slight Edge Habit 1: Hydrate
Did you know that drinking water can help you burn calories? It’s true. Studies show that when middle-aged people who were overweight drank water before their meals lost an average of four and half pounds over a 12-week period. Not only is water essential to life, but it’s one of the most important steps you can make to maintain a healthy wellness routine because it gives you the feeling of fullness and reduces cravings. The amount of water you require each day depends on your age, activity level and weight. If you are not sure how much water your body needs, take half your body weight + 12oz. per 30-minute workout (Ex: 150-pound person who works out for 1 hour a day (75 + 24 = 99 oz.).
Slight Edge Habit 2: Breathe
Just like water, there’s not much we can do without breathing. It’s the most natural thing our bodies do to help us stay alive, but there is so much more to breathing once we learn how to control the process. Deep breathing exercises are great for keeping our stress levels low. When stress gets too high, it can lead to unsavory eating habits that cause weight gain. Find 5 to 10 minutes to do every day doing deep breathing exercises to reduce stress and decrease emotional eating.
Slight Edge Habit 3: Move
A sedentary lifestyle can lead to a downward spiral of health issues, and as we become more technologically advanced, the easier it is to engage in low energy activities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 21% of adults stick to the physical activity guidelines. Health experts say that active adults should have at least 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise every week to stay healthy, but we recommend getting at least 30 minutes a day to get your desired results. This consistency in your exercise habits will help you lose weight, improve your sleeping habits, boost energy levels and reduce your stress, which are all great for your health. Here’s pro tip, try to mix in daily habits that can bolster your routine, such as parking further away from entrances and taking stairs over the elevators. The goal is to keep moving.
Slight Edge Habit 4: Mindful Eating
Bringing conscious awareness to your daily eating habits will help you make the correct decisions to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. When we get distracted, it’s easy to fall into snack trap that can lead to weight gain and other unhealthy issues. Maintain your focus throughout the day to choose whole foods instead of processed foods and avoid sugar and artificial sweeteners. Adopt and eat-to live mentality by planning your meals in advance to keep you from straying off of your goals. Another mindful tip is to eat slowly and chew thoroughly. This will allow you the enjoy your food as well as keeping you from overeating. When your body says it has had enough, it’s time to stop eating.
Slight Edge Habit 5: Reduced Eating Window
The amount of time during the day that we set aside to eat is often referred to as our eating window. Shortening this block of time not only reduces the opportunities to eat more than we should, but it also gives our bodies more rest to it doesn’t have to process food. When the body is not being overworked processing food, it can focus instead on increasing metabolism, lowering blood sugar, decreasing inflammation and enhancing brain function. While you can reduce your eating at any time, we recommend you stop eating by 8 p.m. and resume eating again between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. the next day. This method works best when your body has a 14- to 16-hour rest cycle.
Slight Edge Habit 6: Take NeoraFit Supplements
