healthy!

We all know that maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the key to wellbeing. Studies show that getting a pet can actually help you make a few of these healthy lifestyle changes and here is how:

They help increase your activity level

Psychologists and motivational keynote speakers counsel that physical activity doesn’t necessarily require for you to go to the gym rather if you have a pet dog, you can simply take it for a walk. If it’s cats you have domesticated, you can simply chase them around the house, or if it’s a horse that you own, then go for a ride. These are a few enjoyable ways to incorporate some sort of physical activity into you daily routine.

Pets keep you company

Staying alone or seclusion can cause conditions such as depression, frustration and can even make some suicidal. Motivational keynote speakers also note that having a connection and caring about a living organism can help alleviate the feeling of loneliness and can even make you feel as if you are needed. Pets don’t have a sense of judgment, so individuals who fear being judged by others can really benefit by owning a pet. Also, some pet lovers communicate verbally with their pets and take them to be their friends than just their pets.

eating habits when eating out!

Stated below are few habits you could consider adopting when dining out:

Be vigilant about your food choices. Always read the description given on the menu about each dish. Check whether your choice of dish includes elements that are butter-dipped, deep-fried, breaded etc. You should try to avoid such dishes as they are extremely high in calories and sodium. Instead look for dishes that come with the side of vegetables and include leaner cut of animal protein to keep cut down the calories.

Have plenty of water before starting your meal.  In order to reduce your calorie intake and to overindulge have a glass or two of water preferably 15 minutes before your meal. Moreover, if you get thirsty during your meals, stick to water, ice tea or fresh lemonade instead of sipping down carbonated drinks like Pepsi. Carbonated drinks are loaded with sugar and additives which can be extremely detrimental for your health.

Instruct your waiter to lay low on the dressings!  Whether it’s salads, sandwiches, wraps, steaks or pastas, all these items are usually loaded with some kinds of sauces, dressing or are served with heavy dips. Specify to your waiter that you’d like for your dish to have just a little bit of dressing or none at all.  Or if that’s not possible you can always ask them to serve the dressing or sauce on the side and that way you’ll have control over how much you’d like to add.

The employees with the next highest BMI were the ones working in the packaging and manufacturing industries.
