Change Shape: 30 Tips From Goddessbody

Here are some easy-to-do fitness tips from OnSugar blog goddessbody.

You don't have to wear one of those early corsets to change your shape or get into shape. Wearing one of those would be terrible I would imagine. You probably know a lot of these tips already, but here is a reminder. One drop is nothing, but a continuous drip will eventually fill up even a very big bucket. The same goes for all these activities. One might not be enough but a collection will make a difference.

  1. Always take the stairs instead of the escalator. As for not taking the elevator that would depend on where you are, on the third or 33rd floor? However, you can also walk down the stairs if it's too far up to walk.
  2. Get up and walk to the water fountain on a regular basis. Get enough hydrating drinks, or make an herbal tea to make sure your metabolism doesn't slow down. Also being hydrated stops you snacking so much.
  3. Communicate with someone in your office. Opt to get up and go speak to them in person, instead of phoning or sending an email.
  4. While on the phone get up and walk on the stop [treadmill], or pace around some.
  5. Don't get someone who is popping out to buy their lunch get yours at the same — go with them.
  6. In the morning while you are getting ready, turn up the volume and dance around, or walk on the stop [treadmill] while brushing your teeth.
  7. People who get a good night's sleep control their weight better, they have less cravings, eat less, and use more energy. Make sure you relax a little before going to bed.
  8. Do the vacuuming with more vigor and more often — you and the house will be in better shape.
  9. Make your bed every day, put away your stuff every day. You will feel good coming back to a tidy home and you will use more calories.
  10. If you live in a two-story home and a bathroom is conveniently situated on both floors, use the bathroom on the other floor, making you walk up and down the stairs.

I definitely shouldn't send this to my mother....she seriously tried always using the stairs once and hurt too bad to do anything else the rest of the day. You'd think a fifty year old woman with two replaced knees would know better. But no. If you are like my mother and can't do that tip there, which is one of the best for getting a little activity in, check out a local YMCA or something. Ours here offers swimming and swim classes. It's fun to just play around in the pool with a friend or your kids and easier on the knees. (Check with a doctor first on that, though her's recommended it) Whats even better is in my state at least if you check it out before the 31st you can try it for free.
