10 ways to boost your metabolism

1. Avoid taking caffeine – teas, coffee, and sodas in empty stomach. Take with food.

2. Daily, spend at least 20 minutes in the sun.

3. Don’t take medications that contain steroids.

4. Do not skip meals. You may end up gaining weight if you starve yourself.

5. Get enough sleep. You can gain weight if you don’t have enough night sleep.

6. Consume a bit of starch with every meal (bread, pasta, corn, wheat, crackers, rice, cookies, muffins and pastries.)

7. Think thin. Always send positive messages to your brain about your body shape.

8. Stop the habit of sipping on sugary drinks, such as colas and juices throughout the day.

9. Take deep breathes; make sure your body gets it’s filling of oxygen daily.

10. Take time out to relax daily by not rushing around continuously or let your adrenaline run high at all times.

These are good tips. I wish I could stick to them all. Just today I haven't been eating well because of anxiety and I didn't get enough sleep. I must do better. Thanks for the reminder.

OK - there's one I know I need to work on - breathing. Seriously - I'm a chronic shallow breather and it makes me really tired! Thanks for the reminder!

Good tips. Make sure that half the grains you eat every day are whole grains.
