Did you ever think that there could be more exciting ways to burn off that excess flab around your waist? The good news is, there are. The other good news is that these are not even that hard to do. Do these fun exercises on a regular basis and you’ll start to notice a difference.
That’s right, the age-old, tried and tested activity that anyone can do regardless of your fitness level. Start off with low intensity strolls around your area or a park. Being outdoors and not confined to a gym allows more room for more movement. You’ll be able to spend more time walking while taking in the sights, too. Or, pair up with one of your friends and make it enjoyable with a bit of chit-chat.
Particularly sports that make you move such as tennis, football, and basketball. Playing any kind of sports will not only help you burn off immense amounts of calories but will also improve your overall fitness. Playing sports with a group of your friends will also help them get fit and active too. A Much better alternative than lazing on the couch.
More specifically, interval workouts. Incorporating interval workouts in your regular gym sessions will break the monotony. It will also trick your body into burning fat faster. Make it a fun challenge by timing yourself doing a particular set of exercise. Then take a 1-2 minute break and then switch to a different set of exercise. Make it, even more, fun by having your gym buddy compete with you to see who does it better.
4. Window shopping
This one will be of more interest to the ladies. Window shopping is an easy and fun way to burn calories. Walk around your favorite shopping mall for a couple of hours. You will be amazed how effective this can be in the long run. Opt for stairs instead of elevators or escalators. Discover new stores by walking around and exploring. Don’t linger in one place for a longer period of time. The idea is to keep yourself moving. Just make sure you spend more calories than money, otherwise, this could become an expensive form of exercise!
5. Playing with pets
Playing with your pets can also be a fun way to get rid of those extra calories from that donut you indulged on in the morning. Try going to the park or somewhere there is a big open space and chase your dog all around the park. You’ll probably tire out before they do, but it’ll be fun. Walking your dog can also be beneficial to your health.
6. Eating breakfast
We cannot stress this enough. Eating a wholesome and healthy breakfast can aid in faster weight loss. Studies have shown that eating a balanced breakfast can keep away those nasty cravings that creep up during the day. Eating a breakfast also prevents your body going into ‘starvation mode’, which in turn slows down your metabolic rate, resulting in your body keeping hold of more fat.
7. Drinking some form of tea without sugar
We recommend pure herbal or green tea. A simple trick is to drink 3-4 cups of hot tea. They keep you feeling full and they’re full of antioxidants that help your body fight off the aging effects. Drink a cup before your meal and you are less likely to overeat.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be be tough for some, but making it more fun, will make it easier for you stick to. In the end, it is better to incorporate things that will help you lose weight in the long run and keep it off.
