Exercise daily for better health:
Some amount of physical activity is needed on regular basis. Always running & jogging is not needed but some moderate physical activity is quite enough to keep your body fit. Keep on doing exercise for half to one hour daily. If you want to lose your heavy weight very fast then 1 hr of walking everyday at a brisk pace will give you quick & fastest result.

It is necessary to continue doing exercise with someone who will motivate & inspire you rather than discouraging you. For this you need to make a list of your exercise loving friends & among them choose the one who can be your partner to exercise on a regular basis & who must be supportive if you feel tired.
Have fruits & fresh vegetables; healthy diet for energetic people:
Instead of buying packet foods & eating junk foods outside it is always recommendable to buy fresh fruits & vegetables from the morning market. They are considered the best seasonal fruits & vegetables & keep you healthy. You can have apple a day, because it helps to keep your stomach feel full for about 3 to 4 hours. Try to intake fruits & vegetables which are rich in fibers & proteins since it enhance metabolism & stays throughout the day.
Meats like chicken, turkey, seafood like tilapia; shrimp are rich in protein & have got healthy nutritional value which help to keep your muscles always fit & ready for workouts. Try to eat fish for at least 3 to 4 times a week to gain the health benefits of Omega 3 in your diet. Omega 3 essential fatty acids help reduce cholesterol, burn fat and maintain muscle mass.
Don’t eat & full your stomach at a time. Instead, try to eat 6 to 7 times a day & consume in smaller amount. This will keep you feel light while doing exercise and you will not get tired easily.
Control your sweet tooth:
If you are having a sweet tooth, always eager to have sweet after meals, then without propelling yourself towards sweet dishes which adds calories, think of having fruit like a slice of apple with a tablespoon of nut margarine (like nut or almond).
Maintain your everyday’s calories & food intake:
A birthday, wedding occasion, or weekend party will surely add some more calories. Thus keep track of your food intake per day which will be truly helpful in planning out your physical exercise. In case you have consumed more calories in a day, just take an extra 10-15mins walk around your office or during leisure time.
Hydrate: It is advisable to drink 2.7 litres (91 ounces) of water for women & 3.7 litres of water (125 ounces) for men in a day to maintain your health.
As being said “Drink a gallon a day, keeps the illness away.”
Getting proper sleep:
6 to 8 hours of sound sleep is necessary to maintain a healthy life. Although most of us are working professionals & coming back home after prolonged 9 hours of work makes us tired, a small nap of about half an hour recharges your body & prevents you from staying up later in the night.
A positive mind is utmost necessary to feel fit from your inside. Negativity kills your own mind and as a result your health deteriorates. Be focused, be motivated & be yourself.
Conclusion: To keep yourself fit is in your own hand. Fitness does not require too much of hard work, but a simple exercise or morning walk, maintaining proper diet, getting proper sleep & obviously a positive mind is good enough to maintain your body fitness.
