When it comes to better health and wellbeing remember what works for someone else, may not work for you. Come back to these tips when you feel something's missing and check them off.
Try to fit in, say, 30 minutes to an hour a day. You'll not only look and feel better, it can help you relax and release tension. There are so many exercises out there, yoga, pilates, weight training, running, walking, cross-training, interval training - find what you like. Mix it up. Have fun. And remember, walking the dog, playing with your kids, even cleaning the house are all ways to be active throughout the day too.
Always check with your GP before starting any new exercise program. If you're not sure where to start, why not find an accredited exercise physiologist?
A healthy breakfast can help kick-start your metabolism and keep your blood sugar levels balanced through the morning, so you're less likely to snack. Have a bowl of wholegrain cereal with low fat or regular soymilk, use seasonal fruits to make a smoothie, or have a bowl of fruit salad with your favourite low fat yogurt.
