2. Choose From Different Styles Of Exercise
A regular workout routine is a fantastic way to get into shape. However, when I say
“regular routine” that doesn’t mean doing the same thing day in and day out is your best
bet. It’s important to change up your routine to “shock” your muscles and to keep the
workout interesting for yourself. A stale workout routine could get you in a slump and
you may get bored of working out altogether.
Weight training is a great way to add mass and strength; however you may have no
interest in that. If that sounds like you then you may need to look again and weight
lifting. You don’t need to load up on heavy weights and over strain your self to get the
best out of this type of workout. A nice change from your everyday cardio routine could
be to go for a quick jog to get your heart rate up, then do some light weights while
maintaining a decent heart rate which will encourage continuous weight loss.
Even if you just want to bulk up and lift weights, throwing a bit of cardio into your routine
can help with your heart strength and lung capacity. If you’re already an avid aerobic
exerciser, don’t think you can’t mix it up by changing your routine a little. If you mainly
go just for jogs, try taking a few cardio dance classes and burn calories to a beat. Or if
you stick to cycling you could try doing a few laps and see if you can’t just hit a few
more muscle groups.
Circuit training or boot camp types of exercise could also be a fun way to liven up your
workout. These types of exercise already incorporate variety into their routine. A boot
camp style workout may consist of a lot of different calisthenics such as jumping jacks,
push-ups, pull-ups, or sit-ups. Circuit training could be a series of weight and cardio
stations that alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercise.
Stretching is something that should be incorporated into any exercise routine whether
you’re looking for variety or not. You may decide to use a stretching routine as the main
body of your workout with any of the many forms of yoga, or you can use it just for your
warm up and cool down periods, but this is one thing that should definitely not be
When adjusting your workouts don’t forget you need to progress your difficulty level and
increase your intensity. Variation will keep your workout fresh and fun and your body will
respond positively to the change in your routine.

3. Fitness Routines: Choosing One That Suits
Hearing that word “exercise” can frighten a lot of people and turn them off the idea of
physical fitness. Don’t panic, because the road to good health doesn’t have to be
unpleasant! Starting off slow and getting to know what exercise is all about could
change your life and be possibly life saving. A few things may be holding you back from
a regular exercise routine so take a look at your lifestyle and figure out what you can
change to make fitness a part of your life .
In this day and age, most people are too busy to take enough time for themselves. A lot
of people are always on the go so trying to add a regular exercise routine into their lives
may seem out of the question. Well your personal health is not worth that sacrifice!
Taking a walk on your lunch break at work can get you at least 2 and a half hours of
exercise a week. Spending time with your family can be turned into that gets everyone
out of the house and off the couch for an hour a few times a week. Once you change
your routine and get into new habits you’ll discover how easy it is to get in even just a
quick workout everyday.
A good work out routine definitely doesn’t have to be costly. Gym memberships can be
expensive and buying a whole bunch of new exercise equipment may not be something
you want to invest in immediately. You also don’t need to buy yourself a bunch of new
supplement and vitamins to get started adding a fitness routine into your schedule.
Going for a hike or jog is free and there are strength training exercises you can do from
the comfort of your own home with no equipment. You can eat healthy buy just
choosing the right food when preparing your meals. Especially when you’re starting off,
there isn’t much you’ll need. You may decide to invest in a yoga mat or a few weights
down road, but you can decide what you’ll need once you figure out what kind of
workout routine works best for you.
Health and Wellbeing
The benefits you’ll get from a healthier lifestyle aren’t limited to just looking better or
losing weight. Being in better shape can have a huge affect on your mood and can
battle depression. Having a regular exercise routine can also greatly impact your ability
to deal with stress. If you’re already feeling down about yourself or need a lifestyle
change, make a commitment to get started today! If you haven't been active much (or at
all) in a long while, then it might seem a bit rough at first, but it does not take long to get
Page | 3
4. over that initial hurdle to a place where exercise becomes purely pleasurable. Give
physical fitness a chance and you will be opening a door to an invaluable experience.
Benefits of Getting at Least 30 Minutes Daily
Activity and Movement
You may think getting only 30 minutes of physical activity a day can’t benefit you so why
bother, right? Wrong! Even if you just do a little bit of light exercise each day you are
helping your body immensely! Taking a half hour walk during your lunch break at work
rather than sitting in the lunchroom or jumping on an exercise bike while watching TV
instead of sitting on the couch can really impact your fitness level.
Probably the number one reason to stay in shape, being healthy is what keeps you
alive! A little bit of exercise can go a long way in keeping your heart, lungs, and the rest
of your muscles in good working order. Eating healthy and staying active can prevent so
many diseases and will improve your quality of life.
Your reason for getting into shape doesn’t need to be so you can look like a super
model, but achieving a higher level of physical fitness will not only give you the extra
tone you may want in certain areas, it will make you feel more attractive. A regular
exercise program can help your self-esteem in multiple ways; the sense of
accomplishment you can get from seeing what you’re capable of is invaluable and can
make you feel like a superstar. On a purely chemical level, the endorphins released
when exercising can give you a sense of euphoria. This may be why many people find
exercise so addictive!
Mood and Maintaining Stress
For the same reasons your self esteem will be affected, your mood and stress levels will
be more manageable as well. Exercise can be a form of stress relief and pounding out a
few miles on the pavement is a sure way to get work or money troubles out of your head
for at least a little while. A regular exercise program is sure to leave you more relaxed
and at ease with yourself.
Page | 4
There are three aspects to a good fitness routine: cardio, weight training, and flexibility.
Incorporating all three of these into your lifestyle will undoubtedly improve how you feel
while walking around, doing household chores, or playing with your kids. If you feel that
being able to walk up a few flights of stairs with ease is something worth 30 minutes of
your day then figure out the right exercise plan for yourself and give it a try. There’s no
handbook to physical fitness, so if you aren’t enjoying a particular activity try something
else. All you need to do if move your body a little bit every day and you’ll learn what
works for you and what doesn’t.
Exercise And Pain Management
Exercise can be an excellent form of pain management. A properly designed workout
routine can loosen and strengthen muscles and alleviate pressure in your joints. If
you’re suffering from chronic pain and thinking about beginning a new exercise routine
you may want to consult your family doctor or a physiotherapist because while the right
exercises could decrease your pain, the wrong exercises may lead to further injury.
When you begin working out for the first time it’s normal to experience muscle pain and
fatigue in your body. Your muscles have to break and rebuild in order to get stronger
and this is something you’re going to feel, even more so the harder you work out. Don’t
be discouraged by the soreness you experience because that just means you’re on the
right path to feeling stronger and more flexible.
Back pain can be a real killer for a lot of people. When you’re already in pain the last
thing you want to do is put yourself in more pain by getting up and trying to move an
inflamed and irritated part of you body. That’s understandable, but the only way to really
cure your back pain is to strengthen the muscles around the weakened ones so you
have maximum support. Simple stretches may be all it takes to get your back in the
shape it needs to be to prevent chronic pain or future injuries. However, don’t forget the
importance of starting out slow and steady as it will prevent further injury to sensitive
areas of your body.
Not unlike back pain, injuries that are causing you constant pain may be helped with
proper exercise. The stronger the rest of your body is the better equipped it will be to
support the weaker areas. A knee injury that’s never properly healed or an ankle that’s
prone to spraining can be remedied with strong support muscles that pick up the slack
of the weaker muscles.

6. While taking it easy may seem like the right thing to do when you’re sore or injured, a
well designed workout routine may actually get you back on your feet quicker. It’s
important to be careful and go slow however, so check with your medical professionals
if you feel something may put you at risk for further injury.
Breathing Techniques For Healthier Exercise
Are you using proper breathing techniques while exercising? It may be something
you’ve never even thought about, but it can be a pivotal point in a successful workout.
Whether you’re lifting weights (anaerobic) or going for a run (aerobic) your breathing is
important in many ways. Even during your warm up stretch, paying attention to your
breathing patterns can give you a better workout.
Controlled breathing will go a long way to maintaining a steady workout. During a cardio
workout, you’ll have to keep your breathing level heavier than average but you don’t
want to be outright panting. If you can talk but your breathing is still laboured you’re
probably in the right breathing range. Your breathing is an indication of your heart rate,
and with a cardio workout, your heart rate is determining the intensity level of your
Breathing may seem less important while lifting weights but that is most certainly not the
case. Do not hold your breath while strength training! Your muscles need that oxygen
you’re breathing in and you’ll be able to last a lot longer if you keep your breathing
Holding your breath in a workout or not breathing evenly can affect your blood pressure.
The physical activity you’re doing has already elevated your heart rate, but adding
uneven breathing can increase this and that can be dangerous if your blood pressure is
already high. You’re working out to be healthier so doing something that could endanger
you is only counter-productive.
Not only will proper breathing techniques prolong your workout and keep your heart
beating at a safe pace, it can also just relax you and make your workout more
Page | 6
7. enjoyable. While doing your warm up and cool down stretches, take the time to breathe
slowly and deliberately. This will focus you and let you really feel the progress your body
has made. Controlled breathing will lower your heart rate after an intense workout and
will replenish your muscles with the much needed oxygen they have used up.
Your body is a fine tuned machine and even though breathing may seem like a trivial
thing it should not be overlooked. Proper breathing will give you a more effective and
enjoyable workout so whether your riding a bike, doing bench presses, or holding a
difficult yoga pose, just breathe!
Getting Started: The Physical Fitness
Physical fitness does not have to be something you dread. Getting into better shape can
be whatever you make of it and it can be something you find enjoyable. Whatever you
decide to make of your fitness plan, there are three basic categories to physical fitness
that need to be maintained if you want to get into shape and feel great. Muscular
strength, aerobic endurance, and flexibility are all vital components to any successful
exercise plan and what you decide to do with each of those categories will be entirely
up to you.
Everything movement you make uses muscles. Working on strength training will not
only help to get you into shape, it will help you do things more easily in your day to day
life. Anything from carrying groceries, to mowing your lawn, to folding your laundry can
Page | 7
8. become a whole lot easier once your muscle are a bit better shape. There are many
different exercises you can do without or without weight training equipment, and you
can decide what intensity to work at, but keep in mind that you need to challenge
yourself and use adequate resistance to progress to a higher fitness level.
Cardio training is a key element to keeping your heart and lungs in shape and will be a
very important aspect of your workout routine if you are trying to manage your weight.
This aspect of physical fitness is so versatile you may find ways to exercise you would
never think of as work. If you hate running on a treadmill don’t think you can’t still
maintain your aerobic fitness. Try cycling or swimming, or perhaps even just going for a
fast paced walk on your lunch break. You will be surprised at how much you can start to
enjoy these activities when you see what you can accomplish.
Flexibility is so easy to overlook. Weight training and cardio seem like “exercise”
whereas stretching and giving yourself a proper warm up may feel like an optional
fitness bonus. Its importance should not be underestimated! Stretching your muscles
will go a long way in preventing injury and will help your joints and muscles in your
every day activities. You’ll save yourself a lot of pain if you take an extra five minutes
before and after your strength and cardio training to stretch out and maintain a good
rande of motion.
Each of these three categories is something you can have fun with. You’ll likely discover
new past-times you hadn’t thought of trying before such as skiing, mountain biking, or
yoga. Once you start seeing the results of your efforts and noticing new abilities you
never though you could have, physical fitness will likely become an exciting activity for
you that you can’t believe you were ever living without.

9. Is Water Aerobics Right For You?
Getting started in a water aerobics class could be the right thing for you any number of
reasons. There are so many different types of fitness programs and work out plans but
water aerobics has always remained pretty unique. Water aerobics can not only be an
amazing workout, it’s safe, and it’s tons of fun!
A Good Start
If you’re new to exercising, think you’re out of shape, and don’t know what to try then
water aerobics is a great place to start. This is an activity that lets you go at your own
pace and increase your exertion when you’re ready. While the water provides
resistance as part of the fitness routine, it also helps to reduce the resistance of gravity
and can be used to your benefit while your muscles are still getting stronger.
Weight and Obesity
For some it may be discouraging to embark on a new fitness program when you’re
overweight. One of the best things about water aerobics is that about 85% of your body
weight is being supported by the water. When you’re working out in this environment,
you’re still burning calories, but a lot of stress is being taken off your back and legs so
you get the chance to have a full body workout with less discomfort.
Age and Joint Pain
As you get older, arthritis and joint pain may be something that can’t be helped. Trying
to maintain a healthy level of physical fitness may become unbearable, but water
aerobics is an activity that will cause less inflammation and pain to your joints. Plus,
Page | 9
10. being submerged in the refreshing fluidity of the pool may actual go a long way to help
relax some of your aches and pains.
Exercising can be a great way to get you back on your feet after an injury, but that can
be challenging when you’re already in pain. Water aerobics is an invaluable
rehabilitation tool because it can be as low-impact as you make it. You may even just
decide to make it part of your fitness regime as a form of injury prevention.
Water aerobics can be right for you whether it’s being done for exercise or just for fun.
Many people out there who aren’t strong swimmers may still enjoy water related
activities and lucky for them water aerobics can be done in shallow water levels.
Whether you choose this form of fitness because of medical reason, age, pregnancy, or
just for your love of water, it’s a great way to keep cool and have fun while burning
Fitness And Exercise Equipment: From
Small To Big
Whether you’re starting a new fitness program at your local rec center or purchasing
equipment for your home gym, understanding the different types of equipment out there
is valuable knowledge for anyone with an interest in physical fitness. Your custom
Page | 10
11. routine will determine the equipment you’ll be most familiar with but knowing what’s
available can give you the opportunity to expand your workout to something new and
Many weight loss fitness programs will incorporate cardio machines to get your heart
rate up and get your blood pumping. Treadmills and elliptical machines offer adjustable
speed, inclination, and resistance settings that let you customize your workout while
cycling and rowing machines are another option if you’re looking to focus on certain
Weight Training Equipment
For any weight training workout you will be able to choose from free weights or a weight
machine and many people will incorporate both into their routines. Free weights will
generally be used with an adjustable weight bench that give you the desired inclination
for each exercise. Weight machines can be either plate loaded or stack machines and
the one you choose will just be a matter of personal preference.
Stretching and Yoga
Flexibility and stretching is an important part of any workout so using the proper mats
can make this aspect more enjoyable and save your hands and knees some potential
grief. To add some extra meat to your warm ups and cool downs you may want to try
using some exercise bands and tubing. They come in different thicknesses so having a
few different bands on hand can give you a variety of resistances.
Other Machines and Equipment
Exercise balls and balance disks can be used on their own for toning and stability
exercises or used concurrently with weights to add a little more difficulty to your weight
training. Hand exercisers are excellent little pieces of equipment that will help you work
on your grip. You may even want to try things like ab and thigh machine to tone specific
No matter what type of workout you want to get there is a piece of equipment out there
that can either provide the workout or simply enhance it. If you aren’t sure about a
certain machine try it out or have a trainer or store clerk show you how to use it.
Learning about new machines and equipment can be an interesting way to spice up a
previously stale workout routine.

12. Summertime Exercise: How To Stay Healthy
And Fit In Hot Weather
Once summer comes around you may find it difficult to continue your normal exercise
routine. It gets hot and muggy and you may either lose the drive to workout or find
yourself physically unable to because of the heat. Well this year your routine doesn’t
have to be interrupted. Keeping a few important reminders in mind will allow you to stay
fit and healthy even when a heat wave strikes.
Hydration and Nutrition
Whether your outside under the hot sun or indoors in a muggy room, be sure to drink
plenty of water. You’ll be raising your body temperature even higher and sweating more
than usual so it’s important to keep your fluids replenished to avoid heat stroke and
dehydration. Make sure you’re getting the proper nutrition as well by choosing healthy
foods that will keep your energy supplies up.
One of the best ways to keep yourself cool while exercising in the sun is to wear
something light and breathable. If you choose to wear something that exposes skin
make sure to wear sunscreen as well to avoid burning. Breathable shoes will help to
keep you cool, just ensure they are still the appropriate footwear for the type of exercise
you will be doing. Trading supportive shoes for something that will keep you cooler
won’t help your workout routine.
Obey Your Body
Pay attention to the signals your body gives you. Checking your pulse from time to time
and slowing down your regular routine at first are both excellent ways to ensure a safe
workout. If you’re feeling tired or dizzy be sure to give yourself a break or even end your
Change Your Routine
You may choose to just avoid the sun entirely. Finding a new activity that can be done
indoors might be exactly what you need to keep your fitness routine going strong
through the summer. Or perhaps you may just want to change when you exercise to a
cooler part of the day.
Finding a new activity that’s more suited to the summer temperature could be a great
chance to try something you’d never thought of before. It may also give you the
opportunity to work new muscles that had been getting neglected with your old workout.
Page | 12
13. Just be sure you don’t overdo your workout and you give yourself a generous warm up
and cool down to keep those muscles loose and flexible.
What Is A Balance Ball And What Do I Do With
If you’ve seen balance balls lying around your gym and have never used one, you may
be wondering what they’re for and how they work. They may look like a simple piece of
equipment but the possibilities are endless when it comes to different the exercises you
can perform with them.
Most commonly balance balls are seen in gyms being used for stretching and muscle
strengthening. Because they offer such a variety of exercises they can be used whether
you want to tone a certain muscle group or strengthen muscles to prevent injury. Low
impact exercises can easily be done with a balance ball so they are enormously helpful
in rehabilitation from injuries.
Balance balls aren’t limited to just exercise. Many people use them as desk chairs to
improve posture. While you may not be “working out” your back and abdominal muscles
are still being strengthened by maintaining your balance.
As the name would imply, balance balls assist in developing your balance and stability.
Achieving excellent balance may not seem always important but it can actually greatly
enhance your overall workout.
Having proper balance during a cardio workout will minimize your chance of injury and
allow you to more fully enjoy the workout. For a weight training work out, stability is very
important when using free weights so the addition of a balance ball to your routine might
give you that added level of difficulty you’re looking for.
Working on your balance will increase strength and core fitness resulting in more finely
tuned muscles. Your coordination will be honed giving you better reflexes and reaction
Page | 13
14. Find the right size for the type of exercise you’ll be doing. Balance balls come in many
sizes will different variations of firmness, so it’s important to find one that is comfortable
for you and suits your needs.
Get creative with your exercises. There are so many exercises out there for balance
balls that focus on every different muscle group. If one exercise stops being enjoyable
for you or is no longer giving you the resistance you’re looking for, don’t be afraid to try
How Can I Tell If I Am Procrastinating?
Procrastinating is a dangerous disease. I call it a disease because if it goes
unmanaged, it effects are severe. It can lead to loss of your job, business or fail you
exams. May be you are hearing of this term procrastinating for the first time. Well, by
definition; procrastinating is the process postponing doing what you are required to do
due to insensible reasons; for instance, laziness or carelessness. When addicted to
procrastinating, you keep on postponing activities carelessly.
I know believe that you have a general picture of what procrastinating is and you can tell
if you are a victim or not. Going back to our main topic which is: how can I tell if I am
procrastinating? Basically, it is very simple. A procrastinator is a person who keeps on
postponing what he/she is required to undertake for other unrelated activities or due to
Causes of procrastinating
Some postponements are necessary while others are not. For example, if you delay to
undertake a task because you are waiting for clarification from your seniors, then that is
a justified delay. However, if you delay because of chatting on a social media network,
then that is an unnecessary delay. Therefore, let’s look at some of the causes of
1. Complex tasks: if the tasks you are performing are very sophisticated, you can
easily lose interest
2. Inability to make decisions: some decisions are very sensitive and can only be
made by specific people in the organizations. If such situations are encountered,
you will definitely delay the job until the decisions are made
3. Unpleasant tasks: if the tasks you are performing are unpleasant at all, then
your interest to work can be easily diverted
Page | 14
15. 4. Lack of interest: if you are doing what you aren’t interested in, you can easily

negative attitude towards the person who gave you the task, there is a possibility
8. Disturbances: if there are a lot of disturbances where you are working from, the
work can be delayed
9. Perfection: some people delay tasks in an attempt to make the work perfect
Facts about procrastinating

which rarely happens
2. The style of parenting can cause procrastinating
3. Procrastinating is not inherited but developed by the individual

16. The Truth About Weight Loss
Basically, losing weight is about burning more calories than you take in. It is very easy
to lose weight but if not taken care of very carefully, the effects of over-weight are harsh.
Many people become obese not because they cannot handle it but because they fail to
instill very simple steps that can eliminate the problem completely. Obesity will bar you
from performing many activities and remain limited on what they do. This is because the
body becomes too heavy, imbalanced, unstable and inflexible.
Today, let’s share on some of the ways we can use to lose weight
Diet: maintain a healthy eating habit. It is recommended that you eat six small
meals a day distributed regularly throughout the day. You should have your last
large meal about three hours before going to sleep. Eating more raw fruits and
vegetables will also facilitate faster burning of excess calories.
Some people say that you need to avoid eating snacks, this is not true. Instead, the
snacks need to be eaten at the right time and alongside a workout program. Therefore,
you should not specialize and go fasting in the name of losing weight; you can still
maintain your previous snacks but also stick to your doctor’s diet program.
Drink a lot of water daily: the water mostly dehydrates the body; which is a
crucial process in losing weight. Start taking water as soon as you wake up and
maintain the trend throughout the day.
Page | 16
17. Juicing: if you walk into homes of those people who are serious about their
health, they never miss juicers. Juicing is one of the best ways that health
experts have said to be effective in losing weight. What you need to know is the
combination of the produce and the selection of the juicer to use to extract the
Exercise: you can maintain a healthy diet but without incorporating a workout,
the results might not be very satisfactory. Initiate exercises that will involve all
body parts and muscles. The exercises make the body active and increase the
rate of metabolism thus burning more calories.
Supplements and pills: there are supplements available in the markets which
can effectively burn calories. Most supplements are incorporated in the diet and
they facilitate the weight lose process. However, you should visit a doctor for
recommendation on what type of supplements to use because some have very
severe side effects which can worsen the situation.
Calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR): this equation helps you to know
the number of calories you need per day to maintain your weight, the number of
calories you take daily, the number of calories you burn ad the number of
calories you need to burn. This equation will help you strategize on how to
approach the obesity situation.
Basically, maintaining a healthy diet and incorporating body exercises consistently is the
best, natural way of losing weight and this has worked out for many people. Therefore, it
is time for you to put the above steps in action to burn those excess calories.

19. Benefits Of Juicing Green Cabbage Juice
Cabbage is one of the most nutritious vegetables that have multiple benefits for one’s
health. Basically, there are various varieties of cabbages including the head cabbage,
light green, round variety, leafy, tightly bound variety, among others. all the varieties
contain potassium, iron, calcium, sulphur, iodine, phosphorous, vitamin A, vitamin C,
vitamin B1, B2, B6, E, K, amino acid and folic acid. All these nutrients and vitamins are
low in calorie content and are very crucial in boosting the health of an individual.
In most cases, cabbage is said to have a bitter flavor. However, this is eliminated by
combining it with other produces like apples, carrots, orange, celery, etc. Let’s now look
at some of the benefits of the juice obtained from cabbage.
Health benefits of green cabbage
Digestive system: cabbage contains amino acid which is one of the best body
cleansers. In addition, the juice obtained from green cabbage is directly absorbed
in the bloodstream thus being digested within the shortest time possible.
Immune system: cabbage works well in preventing allergies. Also, vitamins are
well known for preventing diseases and since a large percentage of cabbage is
comprised of vitamins, this means that the body’s immune system is best
boosted when you drink green cabbage juice. The juice protects cell damage,
promotes healthy teeth and heals wounds.
Constipation: cabbage is fibrous and has a laxative effect on the body which
makes it easier for the body fluids to flow throughout the body.
Page | 19
20. Energy increase: once the green cabbage juice is taken into the body, it is
directly absorbed thus increasing the energy levels instantly. The juice does not
require digestion because all the green cabbage nutrients are easily absorbed
Antioxidants: cabbage contains a good percentage of antioxidants which
eliminates many toxins from the body which could otherwise cause problems.
Increased metabolism rate: as stated earlier, the cabbage juice increases the
energy levels in the body. This in turn increases the rate of metabolism thus
improving the general performance of the body reaction and keeping the body
active at all times.
The green cabbage juice is effective for everybody; be it children or old people.
However, for you to get the maximum benefits of green cabbage juice, you need to
extract the juice appropriately. The juice is preferred than the raw cabbage because
juice is easily absorbed in the body, the taste can be changed and the quantity of intake
