When you start taking exercise you’ll find one of the benefits is that exercise will help you get a good night’s sleep.
The Drink Water Habit Your new habit: To drink 7-8 glasses of water each day Drinking 7-8 glasses of water a day will keep you properly hydrated, reduce any bloating and keep all your biochemical processes working properly – and help you to lose weight.
Drinking the right amount of water is just question of getting into a routine and choosing to drink water rather than anything else.
Try this as a starter routine: (you can adjust it to suit your day) ‚ A glass when you wake up or half an hour before breakfast
‚ One glass before you start work or at about 9.30
‚ A glass at 11.00
‚ 30 minutes before lunch – 12.30
‚ One at about 4pm
‚ A glass before you leave work – 5pm
‚ A glass half an hour before dinner – 6.30pm
‚ A glass about 8pm
When you first start you will find that you’ll visit the bathroom a bit more often, but your bladder will adjust over time and your visits will become less frequent.
Remember! Hunger and thirst signals are easily confused. If you feel a hunger pang, answer it with a glass of water, not with food.
