4 Easy Things You Can Do Now To Feel Better Instantly

1. Stop Dieting: Diets make you fat. Diets slow down your metabolism and cause your body to store more fat wherever it can. Also, they lead to a dangerous cycle of depriving yourself until your will power gives out, then "pigging out" on unhealthy foods. Instead, develop a food plan that lets you eat small low-fat meals three to six times every day. Your stomach will stay full and you won't be tempted to "blow it."

2. Stop "over-exercising." Exercise should be fun. If it's not, you won't stick with it. Overdoing it is the best way to doom your exercise program to failure — and in most cases more is IRA necessarily better. Studies have shown that you get the most benefit from just three or four low-impact aerobic exercise sessions per week.

Also: Try to exercise at an elevated heart rate at least 20-30 minutes at a time. In shorter exercise sessions, your body burns more glucose and less fat.

3. Take a two-minute breather: When you're feeling pressured, you can help your body tolerate the stress by taking a couple of minutes to unwind. Try this simple, three‑step technique: (a) Sit comfortably on a chair with your arms and legs resting. (b) Close your eyes and breathe deeply from your stomach, relaxing tight muscles every time you exhale. (c) As you relax, allow a smile to come to your face. This exercise will clear your head, cut stress, give you a more positive outlook and give your k body the rest it needs to keep you going.

4. Replace "bad fat" foods with "good fat" foods: One way to do this is to replace red meat with fish several times each week.

Not only do you get less animal fat, you increase your consumption of Omega-3 oil from the fish — the compound credited with producing healthy hair in the Eskimos and Japanese.
