The reason for this is not only that you’ll be putting fewer empty calories into your body, but also that you’ll be increasing your metabolism to burn fat at a faster and more efficient rate.
Get More Sleep
What could be easier than lying in bed longer? As it happens, this is actually one of the very best ways to burn more calories and will also help you to wake up feeling more refreshed and rejuvenated, ready for the day ahead!
You can burn a huge number of additional calories by walking to and from work, or just getting off your bus a stop later. This will not only burn calories but also help you to increase your physical fitness and to improve your resting heart rate. A lower resting heart rate means that you’ll feel calmer and less stressed and will reduce your chances of developing heart disease and other serious issues.
Okay, so getting into the habit of meditation isn’t easy per-say. But doing it for just five minutes a day is a much easier habit and something that there’s really no excuse not to do. And the benefits of this practice are absolutely huge… so it’s time you gave it a try! Set a timer for five minutes before you start your day and tackle the day ahead calmer, happier and more focussed.
