Hey guys, and welcome to Universal Direction. Today’s article is a fun one for me. It’s all about healthy hacks.
Avocados are the bane of my life, and I see so many of you guys tweeting about it. Don’t panic! If you get them out of the fridge and pop them into a fruit bowl along with bananas, they’ll help to ripen them overnight, and you’ll soon be able to have that avocado on toast.
If you love food as much as I do, then portion control is your enemy. Using a smaller plate makes it so much harder to over consume.
If you’re feeling extra snacky and just want to eat everything in your cupboard, before you reach for the tastiest treat, think, would you eat an apple? If the answer’s no, it’s more than likely you’re bored, not hungry. So shut the cupboard and walk away.
If you hate doing cardio, and you don’t want to go to gym, my top tip when you’re next go for a walk is to just to add some cans or some rice to your backpack. Just by adding a little bit more weight, it makes the walk just a little bit more difficult, and works up much more of a sweat.
If like me you have a serious case of sweet tooth, then this recipe is perfect for you. All you need is some frozen fruit. I tend to buy it as it works out so much cheaper, although you can freeze your own. Mix it with your favorite type of milk or water, blend together, and you’ll have the most tastiest sorbet ever.
Whenever I take on a new client who wants to feel fit, I always recommend that they aim to fit in a walk either pre-breakfast or post-dinner. It just helps your metabolism to turn away everything you’ve done that day, or kick start it first thing in the morning. Plus you never know what you’ll see on your walk.
Sleep is something we all take for granted, but sleep is one the best ways to health kick your body. Instead of scrolling Twitter all night, aim to switch off all electronics at least 30 minutes before bed, and if you really can’t switch off try a sleep spray or an eye mask.
