Even if you’re in the middle of a deep sleep, or quietly reading a book, your body is always active. It never quite “shuts off,” because it’s always storing and consuming energy (from the food you eat) – and building up and breaking down molecules necessary to maintain your health.
Your metabolism may not be completely under your control, but there are definitely ways you can help rev it up each day simply by incorporating a few healthy habits. The key is to integrate them one at a time into your day-to-day ritual until they just come naturally, rather than trying to overhaul your entire routine at once. Exercise is always encouraged to help boost your metabolism, but if you can’t seem to find time to hit the gym, you can at least start with these easy tricks.
