Sport for Life: Health and Self-Esteem
Sport is important for the heart, circulation, and metabolism. Each form of movement makes the heart work harder, it has to do more. It pumps faster, the pressure in the vessels increases, and they expand. The risk of blood clots in narrow vessels is reduced. Despite the higher stress, blood pressure drops because blood is more easily pumped through the veins and the heart has to work with less resistance.
Why Do I Need Self-Confidence at All?
Almost everyone knows about the positive effects of exercise on the mind and body. Even if the implementation is often lacking. Self-confidence is extremely important. A lot of people suffer from the fact that they don't live the way they want. They don't feel comfortable at work, in relationships, in body, in life. And in the vast majority of cases, this is due to the fact that they do not have strong self-esteem.
Building self-esteem should be your top priority in life. And sports can help you!
More self-confidence through better posture. How you stand is how you feel.
More self-confidence through more self-love. Let's be honest - are you satisfied with yourself and your body? Can you stand naked in front of the mirror in the morning and say with conviction that you love yourself the way you are?
More self-confidence through a sense of achievement. Regular exercise means you are disciplined and able to motivate yourself.
Light Diet Before Training
Eating healthy means eating a variety of foods. A mixture of fruits and vegetables, dairy products, fish, meat, bread, and rice makes the body strong. Before training, however, the athlete should not consume food that is difficult to digest. Ideally, the last large meal was about two hours ago. In this way, the stomach no longer produces as much acid and the body approaches training more easily. If you run on an empty stomach in the morning, you can even train your fat metabolism. As long as the athlete does not exhaust himself, breakfast can only take place after the morning run.
Carbohydrates After Exercise
After exercise, the metabolic rate is increased for a good two hours. The athlete can now recharge his energy reserves with his fitness nutrition plan - with carbohydrates. They not only satisfy hunger but also accelerate the regeneration of the body. Especially runners preparing for a marathon need to watch out for their carbohydrate stores. After exercising, experts recommend foods such as bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, and fruit. The liquid in the fitness nutrition plan: drinks in the quick check. Every healthy person should consume about two liters of water or other drink a day. Athletes can drink more because they sweat a lot and have to refill their stores. The ideal drink for a nutritional plan that is supposed to promote fitness is still mineral water.
