Its always better to do something than nothing.


If you are really a health devotee you must believe this.Each day making small changes in your lifestyle will make you fitter from outside and inside as well.
A 5 minute jogging/skipping before shower is definitely better then doing nothing.
Doing healthy food swaps is another step towards healthy lifestyle.if you are a bread lover bake your own bread which may not be tastier as the gourmet bread but much healthier than that. Else replace bread with roti.
Make sure that next time you open the door of your refrigerator you will just pick up a fruit or some steamed vegetable sticks with healthy dips.
strolling 10-15 minutes after meal is just another healthy start.It will make you feel 100 times better than scrolling your mobile.
