Simple health hacks for the lazy

Eating whatever you wish to and gaining pounds of weight is as easy as it could get. On the other hand, losing weight is one of the most difficult jobs in the world. Working out and living on mere boiled food is not everyone’s idea of staying healthy. In fact it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. We admit it, you’re one of us. In short, you are lazy like most people. You try to lose weight and  stay healthy but you can’t, only because it demands too much of an effort. Check out our simple hacks to stay healthy without even trying too hard.


Simple health hacks for the lazy

Yes, you read it right. Even though laziness is a sin when it comes to being healthy, sleeping does just the opposite. Not only does sleep reduces stress, but it also helps you live longer and boosts your memory. The best way of being healthy is getting a good eight hour sleep every night. Sleeping anything less than five hours is hazardous to your health. Go ahead, sleep it off.

Eat slowly

Instead of hogging on food, try to enjoy your meal. Whatever you are eating, eat it slowly. It is ok to be lazy when you are eating your meals. This not only keeps a check on your digestive system but it also helps you lose weight.  It takes nearly 20 minutes for your body to feel full, thus eating slowly will cut down the risk of over eating.

Get a Pet

You could make yourself a bowl of salad, or sprouts, even khichdi and oatmeal works wonders. No one has the energy to make restaurant style food every night after a long day of work.

TV Exercise

Most of us are couch potatoes and move an inch away from the television when our favourite sitcom or movie is running. Well, we are not asking you to go anywhere during your movie. But, you can take a stroll in your house during a commercial break. Walking to the refrigerator to get water does count as well. You can even do sit ups or other exercises while watching your favourite TV show.

These easy health hacks may not be able to give you an hour glass figure but they will surely keep you healthy and fit.
