Here are some ways you may lose weight fast with lifestyle changes –

 

Work on your diet

The first step when it comes to losing weight is to work on your diet. Watching what you eat and eating a balanced healthy diet is the fastest way to lose weight fast. Cutting back on sugars and starchy foods (carbohydrates) will help you massively. Reducing the sugary and starchy foods you eat will reduce your hunger levels which will in turn reduce your weight eventually. Also instead of burning carbohydrates for energy, your body starts to feed off stored fat.

Make sure your diet includes more protein and vegetables. Some great examples are –

Tomatoes

Cucumber

Fish

Meat

Seafood

Spinach

Broccoli

 

Working on your diet is one very important lifestyle change you should make if you want to lose weight.

 

Stay active

You need to stay active so you lose weight and to keep it off. You don’t have to go to a gym to stay active. Going for walks help. Jogging/running is a great way to spend tome outdoors and exercise at the same time. You could also join a dance club to get moving or have your own dance session at home if you prefer that. There are lots of YouTube videos available to help you on that.

Staying active is so very important. Getting out and about everyday, even if it is just for a few minutes helps your mental and physical health.

Eat your food slowly

Believe it or not, eating your food slowly helps you lose weight. This is one tip I was pleased to discover because I eat slowly naturally. That could be one reason why I manage to keep the weight off. Eating your food slowly helps you feel full quicker which will discourage overeating.

 

Drink more water

Research has shown that drinking a glass of water 30 minutes before having a meal will increase weight loss in about 3 months. So if you are struggling with excess weight and have tried every trick in the book, you should try this one.

 

Get a good night’s sleep

Research has proved that sleeping well can help you lose weight. Poor sleep is now strongly linked to obesity so ensure you are getting the right amount of sleep. This is yet another reason to make sure you are sleeping enough. Most adults need around 7/8 hours of good sleep. Poor sleep can lead to many other health problems so getting a good night’s sleep is very important.

The spring and summer months make me want to deep clean our home. Which is why I was so happy to work with Beldray on a blog collaboration.

I have used the cleaning gadgets a few times already and I really like them. They are both very handy to have at home, especially now that the sunshine is here and has put me in the spring cleaning mood.

This Beldray Quick Vac Lite is great for floor to ceiling cleaning. I have used this gadget many times in our home now and I really like it. It is a lighter alternative to vacuuming as it is very lightweight which makes it easier to manoeuvre. I like how easy it is to carry around the house. I usually struggle with our good old vacuum as we live in a town house, so lots of stairs  This Quick Vac Lite by Beldray is great for houses like ours as the lightweight allows you vacuum the house form top to bottom. The 5 metre cord also allows you take it from room to room a lot easier.

It is suitable for both hard floors and carpets, and the vacuum also has a washable filter and cyclonic technology which provides a smoother and faster cleaning experience. I love it and I can see myself using it a lot thanks to the ease of using it and the great suction power.

The ultimate colour guide for your home decor

*Collaborative post.

 Is your home looking a bit drab and dreary? If so, you might want to consider changing up the colour scheme to brighten up and bring some life back into your living space. Choosing colours for your interior can be a difficult job, as you need to make sure you pick the right shades to maximise and enhance the look of your home.

To enable you to select the right colour palettes, you should take a look at this guide which will make the decorating process much easier.

 

Neutral shades

One of the most popular interior palettes is definitely neutral shades like white, beige, ivory, nude, grey and more, which are popularly used in plenty of modern spaces. These colours can be used to decorate the whole room, or as base layers to compliment brighter shades. You can use variations of these colours in any room of your home, although the living room and dining room are more synonymous with these shades, as these areas of the house are seen as neutral ground.

Property companies like RW Invest have embraced the all-natural look in their offerings by using light-coloured neutrals like white and ivory to create contemporary style apartments. These attract a wide range of tenants, although they are especially popular with young professionals who prefer modern and airy city-centre apartments.

 

 

 

Pastel palettes

If you want to lighten up your space, especially now the summer months are in play, you should take a look at soft some pastel colours. This could include hues of baby blue, light pink, peach, lime and more. You could start small by introducing pastel-coloured cushions or ornaments, which will add character to any room in your home.

Pastel shades work well in rooms like the kitchen or bathroom, where you can update your neutral-style cabinets with blue and green hues. This is not only a great way to enhance your property but is also a much more eco-friendly solution, as you can avoid throwing out a good piece of furniture. By using the colours, you can also make even the smallest kitchen look spacious, which is every homeowner’s dream. This is also a great way to update a more traditional style kitchen, as the lighter palettes will create a more modern feel.

Bold hues

 If you really want to brighten up your home, you should go bold with shades of purple, yellow, or even red. These colours are perfect for rented apartments which tend to look like show homes, as adding a brighter shade will make your home more personalised. Some landlords do not allow walls to be painted, so if this is the case, you can purchase furnishings and ornaments that will enhance even the most drab-looking room.

Using a bright colour like yellow may seem daring and should not be used in just any room, as it can appear overpowering.Yellow works well in a breakfast room, where you can start your day on a high with striking decor. Try to avoid using this colour in the bedroom, as this an energising colour which may work well in the morning but not so good at night when you need a good night’s rest.

 

How do you decide on the colour guide for your home decor?
