Train For a 5K
It doesn't matter how fast or slow you are, anyone can benefit from running; you simply have to give it time. Even if you're new to running, this is a reasonable goal to go after with a beginner-friendly, run-walk approach.
Get your Plank on
If you have actually been longing for a stronger core, planks are one of the best and friendliest exercises to achieve this goal. Performing this exercise consistently will not only give you a stronger and more enduring core, you'll also start to feel and see abs quick enough.
Increase your daily dose of water intake
There are too many reasons to throw out soft drink habits and replace them with water as well as increase your daily intake of water. In addition to remaining well-hydrated, drinking roughly 8 glasses of water per day will get you clearer skin, will make you feel much more energized, as well as lose weight. Our 1 gallon (3.78 litre) water bottle will ensure you drink enough water everyday. It's also time stamped to hold you accountable and keep you motivated to drink more.
Walk the Walk and Walk Some More
One of the best forms of exercise is walking and we tend to neglect until we start walking a lot and begin noticing the outstanding benefits that come with it. Whether it's by taking your dog out for longer than normal walks or by walking to the convenience store instead of taking the car, will make a tremendous difference in the long run.
Eat Extra Fruit
Adding more fruit to your diet is always easier than committing to eating more veggies. Fruits are such a better alternative to refined sugar and can help beat those sugar cravings. So make sure you pack your shopping cart with tasty fruits and get creative with smoothies and other recipes that make eating fruit very fun.
Attend That Fitness Class You've Always Considered
Whether it's Fitness, Zumba, Bootcamp, or a Yoga exercise class, there are so many options that can make it easy for you to attend. All you have to do is make that first step and try it out at least once or until you find the right fir for you. The benefits will be far greater tan what you imagined.
Make Sleep a Priority

Some of the well known benefits of better sleep are having a lot more energy to increasing your immunity, loosing weight, improved brain function and the list keeps going.

Start Exercising in the Early Morning
Everybody recognizes that evening workouts are much easier to bail on, particularly if it's dark out or if something extra enticing, like happy hour, turns up. By getting up early and working out at sunrise, you're getting your body pumped and energized for the rest of the day, your mindset is at it's best and you'll also have time to attend that evening event feeling great and guilt-free.
