Now that the weather is getting nicer, surveys reveal 80% of us are planning to spend more time than ever outdoors. And getting out before it gets too hot is a smart move for weight loss. Research published in the British Journal of Nutrition reveals that going for a walk in the morning before breakfast helps burn 20% more belly fat than walking after the morning meal. That’s because the body burns up energy stored in muscle cells overnight, so when you move before a meal, the body has to switch to burning stored fat for fuel.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
