Maintaining a Healthy Body Mass Index in the 21st Century
April 27, 2022
Healthy living is your license to live an accomplished life, so you need to steer clear of anything that might rob you of that precious possession.
It would help if you were religious about it.
Now that you've committed yourself to this journey, you should understand what makes a healthy living.
Forget what you've probably seen online; you don't need a "six-pack," and you have to spend hours in the gym daily to live a healthy lifestyle.
All you should be after is a very sharp mind and an active body. Let's read through.
What is a Healthy Body Mass Index?
Information is currency, and that's what many folks don't understand.
A healthy body mass index (BMI) is when your weight is proportional to your height.
That means you can only be overweight or obese when there's no healthy ratio between your body weight and height. But how'll you know if your current body weight is healthy?
Although gender and age are also important here, the general rule is that any BMI within 18.5 and 24.9 is healthy.
How to Maintain a Healthy Weight
Maintaining a healthy weight demands dedication, discipline, and changes, but the problem is that many people get easily overwhelmed along the line.
Once overwhelmed, they're back to the old life of carelessly gaining pounds daily due to what they eat and do.
But the good news is that maintaining a normal weight doesn't have to be this strenuous.
Check out the following lifestyle practices that you can adopt to regulate your weight.
Identify Factors That Make You Unhealthy
You can't solve a problem until you get to understand the causes. That's the rule of life.
Check out your normal day. Is there anything you've been doing that negatively affects your health? Are you sleeping well?
All these are questions you need to personally deal with because the reasons behind stress vary among different people.
Many employees have been caught in the web of working 8 to 10 hours on a seat daily; there's hardly any way such a lifestyle won't affect your health.
This can lead to obesity if care's not taken. We recommend you get a treadmill under the desk to keep your muscles active as you work.
Establish a Daily Exercise Routine
A life without a plan is bound to crash sooner or later, and that's why many people easily get stressed.
We recommend adding a workout to your daily plan to unlock that healthy living you've always wanted.
You don't have to spend hours working out to stay healthy. You can make it a walk or run down your street, indoor cycling, jogging, or do push-ups.
Just be consistent, and you'll soon find your weight in full check.
Vibration Plate Exercise Machine VB1
Our vibration plate exercise machine is specially built to help control your weight by putting all your muscles likely to gain fat under check.
With the speed settings between 1 and 99, working out with this machine strengthens your lower and upper body, leaving no room for fat to accumulate.
The machine's feet are wrapped with rubber to prevent your floor from scratches and further enhance stability as you use it.
Its portable size makes it pretty easy to store when you're not using it. The most amazing part of VB1 is that it's compatible with your yoga straps.
Flexispot Compact Treadmill 09
Another amazing piece of gym equipment you should add to your collection for the daily workout is our folding treadmill 09.
You can easily burn your calories with the programmed 12 types of settings to monitor your heartbeats and any sudden change in your heart rate.
The treadmill comes with a 2.5HP whispering motor; you don't have to be worried about it disturbing your family and neighbor.
The LED display gives you the luxury to engage in other activities while working out by putting your cell phone or iPad on the treadmill's holder.
It's a must-have for your physical and mental health. Check the electronic folding treadmill out today for your home or office.
Develop and Stick to Healthy Eating Habits
Many people have the wrong mentality that you can easily lose weight when you starve yourself or eat once a day.
But why don't you channels that energy to watch what and how much you eat?
You can invest in fresh fruits; they'll do your body a lot of good.
Water is also important here. Always stay hydrated, and you should also consume lots of vegetables and proteinous food items.
Most importantly, stay away from processed food. That's one of the surest ways to deal with body fats.
Drink Lots of Water
You need water as you journey towards achieving a healthy body weight.
The benefits of drinking water are endless, so we recommend you always stay hydrated for proper weight management.
Drinking enough water will also flush out all the waste products in your body system through sweats and urine.
Limit Your Alcohol Intake
You should be very watchful of the amount of alcohol you consume if you truly want to check your weight.
Apart from the excessive damage intake of alcohol has on your liver, it also weakens your body muscles, making it difficult to burn the accumulating calories.
Check Your Sleeping Pattern
It would help if you created enough time to sleep when you get home the same way you were intentional about working all through the day.
Many employees take some of their workplace jobs home to work on them overnight.
The implication is that they're depriving themselves of quality and good sleep, which might eventually lead to workplace fatigue.
Sleeping for 6-8 hours will revitalize you ahead of the new day's hustle. It'll also help ease all the muscles you've put to work all day long.
Pay Attention to Your Workplace Furniture: Use Only Ergonomic Furniture
It's a big advantage when you give your workplace a new magical touch by replacing all the traditional office furniture with ergo furniture.
Apart from making your office a beautiful sight, this ergo furniture will help you work comfortably with your back, knee, neck, elbow, and other well-positioned joints.

Favorite Combo: Standing Desk + Under Desk Bike
Combining our standing desk and under the desk, the bike is one of the favorite combos of ergo office furniture you'll see out there.
Imagine working in your office with a standing desk and cycling a bike simultaneously. That's another intriguing experience Flexispot offers you.
As the cycling continues, you're pumping up your energy, making you more focused and productive at work.
Thanks to its easy-rolling and strong casters, you can easily move the ergonomic office furniture out of reach anytime it's not in use.

Imagine working on one layer of the desk while you set the other layer to a lower height for your kid. That's an amazing sight.
Find Time to Relax
It's almost impossible to maintain a healthy lifestyle when you create no room to relax.
A recent survey by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) shows that one-third of deaths among US workers could have been prevented with regular relaxation.
Taking time to relax will reduce inflammation in your body system, promotes the development of new brain cells, and boosts your immunity.
It'll also prevent you from being exposed to depression, which might lead to workplace fatigue.
Suppose you've not been consistent with this. So we implore you to take this vital step toward achieving a healthy and robust lifestyle.
