Today’s post is a guest post by Joel from topfitreviews. Joel recently discovered the power and health benefits of a walking routine. As result of this, he created a fitness equipment review site where he shares information on what kind of cross training machine is more suitable for your needs. For more information, please visit www.topfitreviews.com.
It may seem outlandish to tell you that one cross training machine has the potential for changing your life, but the truth is that it can. We would be living in a different world if everyone gave nutrition and exercise the respect that is due them.
In a perfect world, it would be rare to have loved ones in their forties and fifties passing away due to heart attacks. Strokes would be a thing of the past, and depressed individuals would no longer be holing up in their homes eating a bag of chips in front of the television. This perfect world would also be complete with people living exciting lives in the world outside. It would be impossible for people to just sit around in an unnatural state of being.
It may be unimaginable to think that the entire world could actually be living a more vibrant and healthier life, so let’s just concentrate on you for the moment. Could you see yourself living a healthier life filled with more energy?
Many things would have to change, and that would have to include your productivity. This is what matters most in life. Individuals, who are healthier, more fit and live active lives accomplish more in just one day than is realized by sluggish, overweight, and out of shape people who struggle with constant ups and downs that are characteristic with unstable blood sugar levels.
Through the use of something as simple as a bottle of water and a piece of exercise equipment, it is possible to change the world and help the unhealthy to become healthy again. Just think about how much more would get done if everyone in the world were to start exercising and get healthy. The world would run with greater efficiency.
We Are Not That Different
There is really no difference between us when it comes to our bodies. We all need the same things to maintain health. Everybody needs a certain amount of protein, fats, and carbohydrates daily to help maintain proper functioning, energy levels, and brain activity.
Regardless of your position in society, a stay at home mom, or the CEO of a multinational corporation, here are the rules your body must live by:
• Regular consumption of calories is required throughout the day to provide energy. Energy levels drop when you fail to provide your body with the fuel it needs.
• Your body is dependent upon daily consumption of protein, vitamins, minerals as well as other nutrients to provide the energy for automatic bodily functions such as metabolism and heartbeat. Your sense of well-being can be dramatically changed when you do not feed your body these nutrients.
• Our bodies were designed to move. When you live a sedentary lifestyle, various problems can occur. Those problems might be loss of muscle and joint aches and pains.
Even though each individual is different in many ways, the way our bodies work is not one of them. We are all the same when it comes to the way our bodies work and what it takes to keep them healthy and our brains functioning productively and focused. Nutrients must be supplied and consumed daily at intervals, and you have to keep moving.
Although it is common place to see exercise equipment in homes, it is a rarity to actually witness anyone using that machinery for anything other than a coat rack. Many people have memberships to gyms, and even carry the cards around with them in purses and wallets, but it is unusual to notice worn out cards because they are used daily. We all instinctively attempt to be healthy, but today’s fast paced world keeps many of us from acting effectively on our instincts.
If you were to count, what would you come up with as the number of health and fitness related products you have bought over the years with good intentions, just to lose interest in a few days or weeks? How many diets have you tried? How many false starts have you had with the same weight loss plan? If you’re like the majority of us, you will find that your life is littered with attempts at weight loss that have gone awry. Today it seems that this type of thing is simply expected because it is so common.
Here are some other common occurrences today:
• Many people wind up at vending machines or the nearest refrigerator for their afternoon slump pick-me-up of sugary snacks.
• Exhaustion in the morning sees many people turning to the coffeepot for numerous cups to help get the brain focused.
• Meetings get boring when there is no background activity, and the brain drifts off.
• Evenings find many people laid out on the couch because they are drained of energy after taking care of loved ones or a hard day at work.
Most adults fall into lifestyle patterns that lead to the above behaviors. Sometimes, meals are skipped because of the hectic lifestyle or because it is thought that it will help to lose weight. If you take another look at the three rules for the human body, it is easy to see what rules get broken when meals are skipped. Required calories are not being delivered and the body misses out on important nutrients. The body simply runs out of energy and you get that rundown, sluggish feeling by the end of the day.
Poor sleep habits are typically responsible for morning exhaustion, but this is often due to neglected nutritional intake and no exercise. Overweight people are not as likely to get as much quality sleep, particularly if they have developed sleep apnea.
A World Of Change
It is impossible for the brain to focus the way it should when it does not receive proper nourishment. Simply by giving fitness equipment the attention and respect it deserves, a world of change can take place. Think about the impact it would make if everyone chose to do the same.
Respect yourself and your home gym equipment by actually using it as it was meant to serve.
Let’s get to the point. If you live a healthy life you will become more productive and successful. Healthy life means that you will provide your body with healthy foods, frequent meals and regular activity and if most people would carry out these simple steps, the world, but especially your close environment, would be a much better place, thus leaner and far more efficient (productive).
