Avoiding these habits helps Phentermine 37.5mg work efficiently.
Not Going Outside
“There are few reasons to leave the house these days,” says Ashley Kitchens, MPH, RD, LDN. “Spending most of your time indoors limits sunlight exposure, which is thought to boost your mood and promote feelings of calm and focus, which we all need right about now.”
It can also impact weight if you usually exercised outdoors. Wear a mask and make going outside every day your “new normal.”
“Working very close to your kitchen comes with challenges,” says Kitchens. “Eating with distraction, mindlessly eating, or eating out of boredom can lead to poor food choices, weight gain, and feelings of dissatisfaction.”
Make a point of purchasing healthy snacks such as nuts, seeds, and vegetables, and leaving the cakes and cookies on store shelves.
“Sitting around all day can increase your risk of health concerns such as cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes and it makes it more challenging for your body to fight off infection,” says Kitchens.
Staying sedentary doesn’t help you burn calories either, so get up and get moving as often as possible!
Spending Too Much Time On Social Media
“Comparing yourself to what other people are doing on social media can cause you to discount or question what you’re already doing and make you feel guilty that you aren’t doing enough during the quarantine,” says Kitchens.
Put the phone down and instead look for fun ways to exercise.
