It is wrong to believe it is just the numbers of calories intake responsible for our weight. Numbers of other factors affect gaining and losing weight, the studies show. It is important how you start your day off and with healthy morning routine, you will surely start feeling better and begin losing those extra pounds you gained.
There are two hormones controlling our body system: insulin and leptin. When they are balanced, our system works properly. But, if we are stressed out, hormones can go out of balance, causing us many problems, including weight gaining.
So, what can you do to improve your energy, your health and your fit body?
Firstly, keep a diary – a gratitude diary
It’s all about reminding yourself that you have the things in your life that make you happy and it is important you have these thing on your mind when you get upset about things in life. When you feel stressed, it is handy to have something to lift your spirit up. By focusing on the good things in your life, you will get your happiness hormones balanced and you will feel better. Stress is also bad for waist line, because you reach out for comfort food full of sugar and high in carbs and you find yourself overeating. So, thinking positive thoughts can help you lose weight.
Stretch your body
Do a short exercise but nothing pretentious. Work your neck, elbows, arms, knees. Let your blood run through your system. You will feel less pain, and feel more content. Energy you gain will keep your mood throughout the day. Also, you will relieve yourself from stress.
Drink a glass of water
Another important thing is take a glass of water, first thing in the morning. Your system has been working during the night, especially your liver – collecting all the toxins from inside. Consider a glass of water in the morning as taking a shower from inside. Add some lemon drips in it, and you will benefit fully from it. It will boost your metabolism, and you will lessen hunger.
