To be physically fit your body needs to function without too much fatigue. You should be able to do leisure activities as well as overcome physical stresses with alertness and vigor without feeling overly tired.  General alertness, muscular endurance and strength, and cardio vascular reliability are the obvious signs that you are physically fit.

Normally, physical fitness is measured according to expected functions of the body associated with endurance, strength, coordination, flexibility, and agility. Stress testing also ascertains the accommodation of the body to a sustained, powerful stimuli used in analyzing fitness.

Your physical fitness levels are influenced by systematic, regular exercise. Moderate activities keep the person at a certain level enough to deal with ordinary stress. However, to improve your levels of fitness you need more intensive exercises which promotes changes and challenge physiological systems.

Here are seven fitness tips that can help you improve the quality of your life.

1. Daily ExerciseEvery day perform some movements that can elevate the rate of your heart. It can simply include brisk walking when buying things in the market nearby. Doing household chores like washing clothes, mowing lawns, and other chores can also help to raise your heart rate.  Taking a 10-15 minutes brisk walk daily is a good way to get in some cardio exercise. Start by walking as fast as you can. Once you are out of breath, which will happen within a few minutes, you can slow down, catch your breath and repeat. 

2. Eat More Veggies. Vegetables and fruits will keep you energized and healthy. Plants in its natural state contain lots of fibers and nutrients. Organic fruits and vegetables must be preferred if possible since it is free from any chemical contamination.

3. Weight Train. Muscles are weakened as you age. Do resistance training to create hypertrophy. This helps you look younger and adds more quality into your life. A really good way to build muscle and tone

the body is to do the plank and push ups. Hold the plank for as long as you can. In the beginning this may be just a few seconds every other day. Aim to hold the plank for at least one minute. On alternative days do some push ups.  

4. Circuit Train. A form of weight training which enables you to continually move from one workout to another. Following this practice can improve your heart rate during the whole workout doubling your cardio session. I like alternating squats with push  ups and lounges as this gives a full work out. Try alternating between upper body and lower body exercises.

5. Train Functionally. Incorporate some movements into your daily exercise which benefit or mimic your practiced movements in the actual world. Sports are good for functional training because the body is required to move in an efficient way. Functional training can keep your body balanced making it more resistant to illnesses and injuries.

6. Stretch Your Body as You Warm Up. 

It’s important to stretch as you warm up before doing weight  training and cardio exercises. Muscle contraction is achieved through resistance training making it tighter and smaller. Similar to all types of cardio, simple resistance training is also great. Warming up the body through stretching is also helpful after exercises. Yoga is a great way to stretch and tone the body.

7. Hydrate. There are about more than 60% of water in the human body. However, most people do not drink enough water during the day. Try to drink between five to eight glasses of water per day depending on your level of physical activity. Be aware that certain beverages  such as coffee, sodas, tea and alcohol, can cause dehydration. 

These are simple strategies to keep your body fit. But more people have failed to achieve body fitness because they are telling themselves they cannot do any exercise because of their family and job. Don’t forget that you cannot work if you are ill. Likewise, if you are dead, you can never be with your family. So,decide  to put exercise first on your priorities for 2018.

Plan Your Contentlaptop

If you’re considering adding a blog to your site, you’ll want to have a plan beforehand. Planning your blog will help your subject matter remain consistent over time. It’ll also help you determine whether or not there’s enough material to maintain a steady stream of posts.

One pitfall many new bloggers run into is starting a blog that isn’t posted to frequently enough. A shortage of recent posts can give your visitors a bad impression of your business. One may think “I wonder if they’re still in business” or “they may want to hire a writer.”

A blog, like any other customer facing aspect of your business, communicates your brand. If it isn’t maintained and given proper attention, people will notice. Post regularly and keep your content fresh. Give your audience a reason to visit often.

Categories and Tags

If you write about a variety of subjects, categories can help your readers find the posts that are most relevant to them. For instance, if you run a consulting business, you may want some of your posts to reflect work you’ve done with previous clients, while having other posts act as informational resources. In this particular case, you can set up 2 categories: one labeled Projects and another labeled Resources. You’d then place your posts in their respective categories.

clockPages vs. Posts

If you’re new to WordPress you may be wondering what’s the big deal behind Pages and Posts. At first glance they appear to be one and the same: if you were to create either a new page or a new post you’d be presented with nearly identical interfaces and in many cases the public appearance of pages and posts will look the same.

Don’t let this fool you. There’s a very fundamental difference between the two and that difference is what makes CMSs, like WordPress, great platforms for integrating blogs with traditional websites.

Pages

Think about the kind of pages that make up a typical website. Most often you’ll see pages like “Home”, “About Us”, “Services”, “Contact Us”, etc. Within WordPress these are often treated as Pages; documents that have no particular regard for the time they were posted.

For example, when you visit the “About Us” page of your favorite company’s website you don’t expect the content to be very different from what was available there a week ago.
