Almost two-thirds of the American adults are obese or overweight according to the recent study. More than half don’t meet the physical activity guidelines required by the experts. It may sound alarming, yet there are those that is able to maintain their healthy figure. So, why are some able to stay fit while others struggle to do so? Below are some healthy habits you can start to be one of those who chose to stay fitand healthy.

Follow The 85/15 Rule

A lot of fitness enthusiasts follow the 85/15 rule. This means that eighty-five percent of the time you eat in the way that will emphasize the vegetables and fruits and high-quality foods such as fish and eggs while limiting the processed ones, then the fifteen percent of the time, you can eat whatever you want. The secret is moderation. If you are eating four meals a day, that is one of your meals every two days. That is how moderation works and that is how you do a healthy diet.

Have Fun

Many physical activities does not have to be associated with drudgery. These activities can be fun if you choose to make it so. Most successful people find enjoyment and fun throughout their fitness journey. They also experiment and do all the new things all the time to stay fit. Try to look for fun with your routine. You can also pump your work out with music. Focusing on the variation and fun will keep you fully engaged with your plan.

HEALTHY HABITS YOU NEED TO DO TO STAY FIT

Be Competitive

One of the greatest motivators when it comes to staying fit and healthy is competition. The latter does not necessarily mean competing with others in a bodybuilding show or a 3k race, yet it can include some of those things. However, the best competition is the one against yourself. There is a thin line between training and working out. The latter is an exercise without a concrete plan while training is goal-oriented and structured. If you just simply worked out by simply wandering around the gym with no real purpose and do some exercise that comes into your mind, then you’d likely stop being active out of the boredom or lack of results. The bottom line is, find your inner athlete within you and compete against with yourself.

Have A Healthy Lifestyle

Those people who achieve and keep up high levels of fitness aren’t interested in short-term or the temporary fixes. You will not find them dieting for six weeks just to get into a bathing suit for a vacation or that perfect Instagram selfie. Rather, they make it a permanent lifestyle and even prioritize it for the long haul. The most successful ones make nutritious eating and training a way of their lives.

5 Sleep-Enhancing Foods To Eat Before Bedtime

5 Sleep-Enhancing Foods To Eat Before Bedtime

Perhaps, you are already aware how important getting quality of sleep is. Sleeping contributes to our overall quality of life. Getting enough sleep can make us look good and feel good about our body. We spend about one-third of our lives sleeping and contrary to what other people believe that it is just a wasted time, there is a magnanimous number of benefits that sleeping can provide to the body. When we sleep, our body gets to work to repair damage cells, rejuvenate and refresh the bodily functions.  Sleeping has a profound effect on our physical, mental and emotional well being. But how is the body triggered to go to sleep?

Our body has a natural hormone called melatonin which our pineal gland is producing. During the day, when the sun is still up the pineal gland is inactive, thus, the production of melatonin is low. When the sun goes down and darkness occurs, the pineal gland is turned on by the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). This initiates signals to other parts of the brain to control body temperature, hormones and other functions that play a crucial role in keeping us awake or falling asleep. When the pineal gland starts working, it produces more melatonin that would make us feel less alert which makes sleep so inviting.

The exposure to light or to darkness affects how the SCN initiates signals to other part of the brain. However, aside from the exposure to light or to darkness, food can also affect in our sleeping patterns. Let’s check out some foods that can aid us in getting quality of sleep.

Walnuts

According to a study by the University of Texas Health Science Center, there is about 2.5 and 4.5 ng of melatonin present in 1 gram of walnuts. This makes these tree nuts great when it comes to promoting quality of sleep. Furthermore, aside from its own melatonin, walnuts are also a good source of tryptophan; this is a sleep-enhancing amino acid that helps make serotonin and melatonin in the body.

5 Sleep-Enhancing Foods To Eat Before Bedtime

Banana

This fruit is known to be an overall health promoter. Specifically, banana also contains natural melatonin and tryptophan which makes it a good alternative for warm dairy milk to aid sleeplessness. Moreover, this wonder fruit also contain natural muscle-relaxants magnesium and potassium and carbs which can make us sleepy.

Ginger Tea

Yes, most teas have a soothing effect that can interfere with sleep but unlike other teas, a ginger tea is an ideal brew to promote sleep. Ginger tea comes from ginger root which is caffeine-free. In fact, ginger root is known to be a natural remedy for sleeping difficulties and there are studies that show it can be an effective remedy for insomnia. Ginger tea is soothing but since it does not contain any caffeine it can make you relax and it can trigger sleepiness.

Milk And Other Dairy Products

Warm milk is the most well-known sleep-enhancing food or beverage but did you know that other dairy products can also give you quality of sleep. Dairy products like cheese, milk and yogurt contains tryptophan and calcium. Calcium regulates muscle movements and it helps the brain to use the tryptophan to produce sleep-triggering melatonin.

Fish

Vitamin B6 plays a crucial role in melatonin and serotonin. Fish, specifically, tuna, salmon and halibut are rich in Vit. B6, which means that they can promote good sleep. Also, although lesser-known, fish oil can also help in regulating sleep patterns and increase quality of sleep. It was thought that the reason why eating fish can help in promoting quality of sleep is because of the relationship between fatty acids in the production of various hormones and neurotransmitters.

Sleeping benefits the body is so many ways. Not only does it help us to recharge and rejuvenate the body to stay alert but it has also a profound effect in our skin. Sleeping, along with other healthy skin regimen like the use of the “CrAzY WrAp ThInG” can help nourish and rejuvenate the skin to keep it healthy.
