PLAN OUT A SCHEDULE OR ROUTINE
Most people skip this step and jump straight into a fitness regime. What they do not realise is, if you spend time planning and scheduling, chances are you’ll be more involved in the process and hence you are likely to stick to it for a longer time.
A schedule brings clarity and encourages you to get up and get started the next day. Plan out your day aim to stay on track!
For a good fitness regime, pick exercises and activities you can do comfortably. Also, commit to a diet only if it is realistically feasible with your daily schedule.
VOW FOR A FITTER LIFESTYLE

Aiming to stay fit will help you reduce weight, and also keep your body healthy.
Hit the gym, go for a run, or even a swim, prefer an activity that will keep you fit and eventually help you shed those extra kilos.

GET SMART WITH YOUR DIET
Bring out your tiffin boxes and fill them up with healthy yet delicious snacks. You could play around with different kinds of salads and fruits.
Foods like almonds, raisins, or energy bars will satisfy your hunger pangs and keep you satiated. Try out newer recipes to make your meals interesting. To stay hydrated, you can opt for flavoured water.
You can carry a bottle of detox water with some lemon pieces, a fruit of your choice and some mint to freshen you up.
MEDITATE FOR A PEACEFUL MIND
