Water During the Winter

Drinking the requisite amount of water a day is easy to do in the summer. It’s when the weather starts getting cooler and we don’t experience as much thirst that we forget to drink as much water as our body really needs. When the weather is hot, most of us are eager to grab the nearest bottle of cold
water and glug it down rapidly. But in the winter, many of us can go all day without even thinking about drinking water. This is a highly unhealthy practice as the waterchange in season makes very little difference in
diminishing the importance and requirement of water by the body. The reason for not feeling as thirsty in the winter is quite simple. Unlike in the summer, we don’t sweat a lot and hence don’t feel as thirsty that often in the winter. Thanks to the crisp weather, we tend to get hungry often in the winter and end up eating a lot of food. To aid and hasten the process of digestion, water is needed by the body. By not consuming the right amount of water, digestive problems like constipation and others can take place. Furthermore, water is also needed to keep the skin supple, soft and moisturized during the dry winter months. The fact is, that maintaining hydration is vital for the proper functioning of the body, irrespective of season.

7 Healthy Habits to Lose Weight

7-Healthty-Habits-Of-Healthy-People

We all know the fad diets that help us shed the extra pounds but when the circumstances in our lives change we tend to go back to our same habits that got us there before our diet started. Here are some tips to incorporate into your daily routine that will help you lose weight and keep it off.

1. Don’t view foods as “good” or “bad.”

  • Instead of categorizing foods as good or bad, see them as ones that you should eat most of the time or only somethings. This way nothing is off limits!

2. Move with purpose.

  • Exercising consistently makes reaching your goal shape much faster and easier. Gain lean muscle and give a boost to your metabolism by alternating high intensity workouts with low intensity yoga like exercises.

3. Find ways to manage your time effectively.

  • Try prioritizing your time to include the things that you know are god for you first, along with activities that contribute to your productivity.

4. Tune into your body.

  • Just being aware of your reasons for wanting to eat can help to reduce chances of eating unnecessarily.

5. Surround yourself with like-minded people.

  • Staying accountable to someone other than yourself can play a huge role in your weight loss success. It can help to give purpose in helping another succeed as well.

6. Treat yourself with kindness.

  • Giving into having cupcakes or missing a workout can make you feel like you’ve given up. The reality is that everyone makes mistakes and there’s no shame in that.

7. Celebrate the small wins.

  • While keeping an eye on the big prize helps to keep you on track, it can also be discouraging to think of it being so far away. Celebrate the small milestones that you reach, whether it be only one cupcake instead of the usual three that day. The small wins make you want to keep winning!
