If you have Amazon Prime, you’re going to love these workouts. The best part is that Amazon offers almost every type of workouts you could imagine. There are videos on everything from yoga sequences to HIIT workouts. I always recommend these Amazon Prime workouts to my clients because of how easily accessible they are. In many cases, these workouts don’t require equipment which makes them perfect for women on the go. You can tune in to any of the Amazon Prime workouts on your PC, TV, or even on your cellphone. These workouts are also great for beginners because many of them break down the exercises in easy to understand language, which can make you feel much more confident in your workout.

Avoiding Weight Gain During A Vacation (As Seen In The Chicago Sun Times) 

Taking a vacation from your diet doesn’t mean you have to completely disregard your fitness mentality! With the spring time and vacations quickly approaching, it’s important to remember that moderation and light exercise are key.

Everyone needs to enjoy and indulge themselves sometimes. It’s important to not deprive yourself of foods and drinks you love, but it’s essential to keep moderation in mind. It’s also important to incorporate a little exercise if you’re going to be indulging in your favorite foods! Even if it’s just a few push ups or squats, they will help your body overall. I always stress to my private weight loss clients that when they’re on a vacation they don’t need to spend a great amount of time working out. Even just spending 10-15 minutes doing simple workouts will greatly impact their fitness!

Weight Gain from Stress and How to Avoid It

We’ve heard before that “stress kills,” but did you also know that it makes you gain weight? When you are stressed, you produce more of the hormone cortisol, the “stress hormone” that causes belly fat!

In order to decrease your cortisol levels, you must de-stress and learn how to deeply relax. Here are a few quick tips on how you can learn to relax, even in your busy and stressful life:

Deep Belly Breaths

-Deep breathing allows the nervous system to relax and takes the body out of “flight or fight” mode. Instead, the body is better able to move between the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems, allowing relaxation to occur.

-Place your hands on your stomach, and take a deep breath in through your nose, filling your stomach up into your hands.

-Then feel the air rising up into your chest.

-Slowly breathe out through your nose (keeping your mouth closed).

-Repeat this breathing 10 times slowly throughout the day or whenever you’re feeling stressed.

Exercise

-Exercise has been proven to reduce stress. Even if there is no physical change in your body, your stress levels are still greatly reduced.

-Your body releases feel good endorphins, which create a better mood and encourage a more relaxed demeanor.

Spending Time with Friends

-Research shows that people who socialize with friends report a reduction in stress levels and an increase in overall happiness.

Getting Enough Sleep

-The body needs time to repair itself, and it needs time to totally check out and relax during your sleep cycles.

-By getting an adequate amount of sleep for your body, you are able to be more relaxed and and also to relax more easily.

These tips will not only help you reduce stress, but also will help you avoid gaining weight. So if you’re not already, start implementing them today!
