Biggie and the rest of us here at BigEye Creative care about you, your well-being and your happiness. Therefore, we decided to scratch the normal blog topic on marketing and social media this time, and direct our attention to something more appropriate for the fast approaching, holiday season – a healthy diet and your physical fitness. We’re going to mix it up a bit with some creative, fun and helpful tips to keep your health and fitness regime on track during the holidays.
Now we know we aren’t experts, per say, on health and fitness – and Biggie isn’t exactly one to talk – but we do know creative and research better than anyone out there.
So, throw on your workout clothes, tie your sneakers and grab your water because it’s time for Biggie’s Holiday Boot Camp!
In order to be happy, you must feel good about yourself; and to feel good about yourself, you must live a healthy life. So, cut out those boring, tedious workouts and get motivated to stay in shape by watching TV Guide’s number one ranked, most popular show, Dancing with the Stars. As the show grew in popularity over the years, so has dancing as a form of exercise. Many observe the amazing transformations contestants undergo throughout the competition and use it as motivation to stay in shape and embrace a healthy lifestyle.
Dancing possesses both physical and mental health benefits that are often overlooked. It’s a great, unique form of exercise that’s fit for all ages, and provides a fun social environment. More so, it supplies the essential cardio of a workout, helping you lose weight and stay toned and fit. Some other benefits of dancing include: the increase of energy, stamina and strength, posture and coordination, lowering blood pressure, cholesterol and the risk of heart disease, strengthening bones – and many more.
As we all know, what you eat is equally important as your physical activity. Take for example, oranges. “Why oranges,” you ask? What’s unique about oranges, other than the fact that they’re one of the most popular fruits in the world, is that they’re essentially available year round – not common for most fruits. However, interestingly enough, they have similar health benefits of dancing. Like dancing, oranges help lower blood pressure, cholesterol and the risk of heart disease, and provide many beneficial vitamins and nutrients.
Oranges are rich in Vitamin C and B1, potassium, calcium and antioxidants. These vitamins and sources of nutrition help the body during physical activity, such as dancing. Oranges are rich of vitamin C, containing 69 milligrams, which helps lower cholesterol. Potassium provides muscle energy, helps control heart rate and balance fluids in the whole body, which is beneficial for activities like dance. The vitamin B1 provides energy and is also known to be supportive of proper heart function. Last, the calcium in oranges helps to strengthen bones, similar to the benefits of dance.
