As they say, “Eat like a king during breakfast.” Unfortunately, due to the demands of a busy life, more people tend to skip their breakfast or resort to taking brunch instead because of the fast paced life they live.

Exercise

Burn what you have taken in. Transform those calories into energy. Move, move and move. You may start with basic leg exercises like walking or jogging. If you’re into sports like cycling, that would be better. Later on, when you’r ready, you can move on to more rigorous exercises like Zumba, or intense session of cross fit.

It will be easier for anyone to stay committed to one’s goal if you happen to have an accountable partner waiting for you to join him/her. Look for someone who will pull your hand and encourage you to continue your gym classes or would remind you of your Yoga activities for the week each time you feel lazy and almost at the point of giving up. Two heads or more are better working out, monitoring each other’s progress.

Go nature tripping
