You are already aware of the fact that exercise is essential to keep up with a healthy body. As machines need to be oiled regularly for their proper functioning, our body secretes natural oils which help in the flexible moving of the body. Daily exercise helps in the healthy secretion of these oils and helps you be more flexible and energetic.
People often exercise to keep their bodies in healthy shape and reduce fat. But, only a few of them are aware of the fact that exercise can help in improving mental health as well. When talking about the term “mental health” there are numerous unanswered questions. Let’s understand what is the mental health of a person and how can exercise benefit mental health.
The human body is designed to perform numerous functions. We can’t even imagine the number of body parts, their composition, and their work that makes all our chores so simple. The functioning and working of each task may seem very straightforward but is very complex and difficult to understand. One such aspect that makes us wonder about its functioning is the use of muscles and the way our body can perform tremendous tasks using muscles.
Do you know stability and balance go together, and there are some reasons behind it? Balancing and stability are everything not only for an athlete or sports person but each one of us because performance in our day to day activity would result low without these two. They both are not substitutes for each other, and one cannot be replaced by the other.But yes, they are related to each other.
Thermogenesis and weight loss, being the trending topics, are they related to each other? How does it work altogether? Is this helpful in impacting fat-burning capabilities? Is it beneficial for increasing metabolism, heading towards fat loss targets, and getting a lean body? This question arises because it is your metabolism that always works on your body to burn calories. Your body burns more calories when you do some activity than when you are at rest.
Microorganisms are an inseparable part of our lives. There’s always a misunderstanding that microbes are harmful organisms that affect our health. However, it’s just partially true. Our body contains billions of microorganisms in the form of bacteria, viruses, etc., half of which are harmful to us while the other half can fight the hazardous microorganisms.
Our entire body is filled with millions and trillions of microbes, but more than 70% of them lie in our gut. Studies have proven that the microbes in our clean gut contribute significantly to our healthy immune system and ensure the supply of essential nutrients.
What if I told you the best kept secret to weight loss? One that would not only make you lose weight but will also become a lifestyle that is easily adaptable and manageable? Everything that we do for our weight loss – be it nutrition or exercise, it all falls under the one big umbrella of ‘Calories.’ The one end goal of everything is to burn more calories than you eat. And that, dear reader, is the secret – CALORIE DEFICIT.
Today, let’s unravel this concept to understand what it is and how it helps us.
As random as it may sound but yes, there IS an ideal room temperature for workout. As you would know, there are multiple factors that work in tandem to make a workout session successful. Room temperature being one of them. In outdoor workouts, temperature cannot be controlled and since it is natural with more air and usually sunlight, it does the body good.
But it becomes important when it comes to indoor / closed room workouts, such as in gym or fitness studios.
A new trend in the fitness industry is Destination Workouts. What are they you ask? It’s about a fitness and travel enthusiast traveling to various locations all across and working out in a natural environment. It gives a raw feel when you work out amidst nature and with no gym equipment support.
The workout focuses on strength training as well as cardio, while using your body weight and what nature has to offer. Sometimes, a few people also include basic equipment if nothing is available in the surroundings. The impact is not only on your physical body but also your mental well-being as nature makes you happy!
Diet – a phenomena so famous that everyone knows this much-loved trend. As discussed in my article, DIETING – An introduction to mindful eating and Bad Weight Loss Diets to Avoid, diet is what makes or breaks your health. No matter what your goal is, being mindful about dieting will accelerate your journey towards your fitness goals.
Now that we know what type of diets to avoid, let’s discuss the good side of diets – HEALTHY AND GOOD DIET.
Keeping yourself on track to stay focused on your fitness goals can be hard. There are a lot of things to do, too many distractions around and too little time to finish it all. Sounds familiar? Let’s face it, we’ve all been there. But all you need is get yourself up and running requires determination and self discipline. Motivational speeches and talks work for some, but they may seem a little too clichéd for some. Personally, I really think music can do wonders in terms of pumping you up, if you manage to find the right track.
