    Share

    There are many natural and simple ways for your body to be active. Being fit can be a major factor for your body. Life can be hectic and you might say you don’t have enough time. Try this easy ways for a outgoing life.

    Below is an excerpt of an article that shares natural remedies to be active:

    Take a lunch break.

    Studies have shown that sitting for prolonged periods of time can contribute to metabolic syndrome, heart attacks, diabetes, obesity and even cancer. Desk jobs can be detrimental to your health in these cases. Take regular breaks to stretch and walk around the office, and go on a walk after eating lunch to help with digestion. A light stroll after your meal will also help you clear your mind for better focus.

    Bike or walk to work

    if you normally drive or take public transportation to work, bike or walk instead. By getting in some activity before you get to work, you’ll jumpstart your metabolism and have more energy and a sharper focus to get tasks done.

    Get A Bit of Exercise

    while it may seem counter-intuitive when you’re feeling tired, going for a brisk walk or doing some cardio at your desk will actually give your system a reboot. The Mayo Clinic actually recommends exercise as a way to deliver more oxygen to your body and help improve blood circulation and heart efficiency.

    The exercises don’t have to be complicated or difficult. In fact, doing some push-ups or even jumping jacks can gets your blood flowing faster almost instantly. Even simple stretches can help you feel more energized without a lot of effort.

    Drink Some Cold Water

    This may seem a bit too simple to be effective, but many people forget that the simple act of drinking a glass of water can have many positive benefits when feeling sluggish. Cold water is even better, according to a 2014 article from the Huffington Post, which notes that cold water can actually trigger an adrenaline response and increase blood flow to your brain.

    While a glass of cold water can get you moving during the day, the Huffington Post article recommends drinking water first thing in the morning in lieu of coffee for a natural kick start. But be wary of drinking ice water with a meal—experts believe cold water could slow digestion, making your body work harder and using up more of your valuable energy

    Natural Sunlight Exposure

    Most of us bask in artificial lighting while we’re at the office, which is not the friendliest environment to optimize alertness or mood. A NHI study featured on The National Centre for Biotechnology Information website notes that subjects exposed to natural lighting conditions during the day felt more alert and had higher cognitive functions in the early evening—compared to those exposed to mainly artificial light.

    The study concluded that even a short time in sunlight would make a difference in mental function opposed to dim office lighting. So open those blinds at work, or use your lunch break to take a short walk outside instead of chugging back an extra coffee at your desk. Deeply breathing in fresh air will also help you feel more relaxed and energized.
