Being lazy is a wonderful thing from time to time. It's great to take a chill out break and lay around with nothing on the agenda. If you find yourself in that state more often than most, then I'm a little jealous. If you don't particularly want to give up your lazy ways, but also want to be healthier, here's what you can do without having to sacrifice your time on the couch or in bed. Here's to great health now and forever.
1 Buy Frozen Fruits and Veggies
Instead of having to go out all the time for fresh, freeze a bunch of produce and you'll always have something healthy to eat.
2 Make a Snack Box
Once a week, drag yourself off the couch and set up a box with healthy snacks. That way, all week long, you can just grab one and head back to your spot.
3 Use Your Slow Cooker
Nothing is more perfect for a lazy girl than a slow cooker. Toss healthy ingredients in and several hours later you have a meal fit for a king.
4 Eat off Smaller Plates
This takes zero extra effort, but is a super easy way to help you control your portion sizes.
5 Exercise in Front of the TV
Do some moves while you catch up on your programs and you can sort of be lazy while also getting healthy.
6 Sleep in Your Workout Gear
If you are going to force yourself out of the house and to the gym, sleep in your workout clothes to slash the chance that you'll go back to bed.
7 Carry around a Water Bottle
Bring your water bottle to the couch and you'll easily be able to meet your daily fluid intake quotas for good health.
8 Make All of Your Lunches at One Time
Instead of having to sacrifice lazy time every night packing a lunch, prep them all on Sunday night and you can just grab and go in the morning.
9 Take Your Dog for a Walk
This most definitely counts as cardio and is something you need to do for your dog's health too.
10 Eat Slowly
Lazy people unite! Turns out that lingering over a meal is a good thing because it allows you to tune into your hunger cues, preventing overeating.
11 Order It in
Still too lazy to cook healthy meals? Consider ordering ready made healthy options that come right to your door. All you have to do is eat them!
12 Take Some Supplements
This is the perfect lazy girl hack if you find yourself falling short on healthy eating.
13 Invite Your Friends over
Research shows that fostering close relationships boosts mood and improves your health. Get your lazy friends to help you get healthier!
14 Watch Some Comedy
If you're going to sit around in front of the TV anyway, put on something funny. Laughing burns more calories than just sitting.
15 Always Order the Small
Too lazy to cook? Make sure you order the small version of whatever you're getting for takeout. This saves calories and fat grams.
16 Start with a Salad
Eating a salad before you dive into your meal helps fill you up so eat less during the entree. And it takes no extra effort.
17 Go Back to Bed
Your body needs adequate sleep for proper immunity, appetite control and much more. So if you haven't gotten at least 7 hours, go back to bed.
