A house where it is easy to keep track of your figure. Part 2

“Everything that surrounds you at home, from the lighting in the dining room to the size of the dishes, can influence your extra weight,” says nutritional psychologist Brian Wansink, PhD, in his book, Unconscious Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think. . It’s worth thinking about. And another thought follows from this thought: if our house can influence our excess weight, then it can also help us get rid of it. 1) Do something while watching TV If you like to watch TV, spend this time in a good way for the body: lifting dumbbells, doing stretches .. or just knitting. According to a study by scientists, knitting, despite the fact that it seems to be a very calm activity, burns calories. It will also help to limit the time spent in front of the TV. Watch only one show or one movie a day. “We found that people who watch TV for an hour eat 28% more food than those who watch short half-hour programs,” says nutritional psychologist Brian Wansink. 2) Think about your sports equipment You once bought all these wonderful fitness equipment: dumbbells, expanders, a yoga mat, a jump rope .. So why don’t you use them? This is your secret weapon for a beautiful figure! Put them in a prominent place, and with the right motivation, the likelihood of their use will be much higher. 3) Wear attractive clothes at home Stretched and baggy clothes place in a landfill. If you watch your weight, wear beautiful clothes of your size at home, then every time you pass by the mirror, you will remember about proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Yoga clothing is the best option. 4) Get enough sleep Lack of sleep increases the appetite-stimulating hormone ghrelin and lowers the satiety hormone leptin, so it’s worth taking care of the quality of your sleep. Do not skimp on the mattress and pillows, buy the ones that suit you. The scent of lavender is very soothing and relaxing. Spray your pillow with lavender water before bed. 5) Use aromatherapy If you still feel hungry after dinner, go to the bathroom and take a candlelit bath. Aromas of green apple and mint suppress appetite. And after a bath in a soft plush bathrobe, go not to the kitchen, but to the bedroom. 6) Hang a full length mirror Your home must have a full-length mirror. In the bedroom or in the bathroom. Yes, and it should not distort objects. Then you can objectively evaluate your figure and progress in your efforts to cope with excess weight. Just don’t hang a mirror next to a treadmill or other exercise equipment. According to a study conducted at Canada’s McMaster University, women who exercise in front of a mirror feel less energetic and positive than those who exercise while looking out the window. 7) Decorate the walls with the right pieces of art Pictures or posters of plants, flowers, vegetables and fruits and beautiful landscapes inspire a healthy lifestyle.
