Ways to Increase Metabolism

  • EAT HEALTIHER AND SNACK HEALTHIER
  • EXERCISE REGULARLY
  • GET ENOUGH OF REST
  • DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

     

Metabolism is how our bodies process and break down cells in our systems to convert them into energy. As you know, the older we get, the more our body changes and many things begin to slow down. But we will discuss that in a later posting. My top ways for increasing metabolism are as follows:

  • EAT AND SNACK HEALTHIER

    Add more fruits and veggies to your diet, especially ones high in water content.

  • EXERCISE REGULARLY

    Even if it is nothing strenuous, like push-ups, pull-ups, or Pilates, exercise will play a major role in speeding up your metabolism. Walking, jogging, doing squats and even doing daily house work is better than sitting around doing nothing.

  • GET YOUR REST

    I say this to myself first. Setting a routine of going to bed at a designated time and rising at a set time is much healthier than sleeping at anytime, day or night. Getting rest allows our bodies time to rejuvenate and restore the system for the upcoming day.

  • DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

Water is a natural source of nutrients, amongst other things, that does more than hydrate our body. It regulates our body temperature, aids in healthier hair, skin, and nails, and helps to break-down and flush out fats (from by-products) in our systems.

A Beautiful Dua….

Ameen! I love it, love it, love it!

Muslimah

A Beautiful Dua….  

“O Allah, help me to say words of truth in the face of the mighty…. And to refrain from speaking ill in order to gain the applause of the weak… And do not let me accuse my adversaries of treachery because their opinions oppose mine…   O Allah , should you give me wealth, do not take away my happiness… And should you give me might, do not take away my wisdom…. And should you give me success do not take away my humility… And should you give me modesty do not take away my sense of dignity…   O Allah, teach me to love others as I love myself… And teach me to judge myself as I judge others… And teach me that forgiveness is one of the greatest step towards strength…   O Allah, do not curse me with arrogance should I be…

As salamu alaikum and hello to all. Sorry that I stepped away for a moment. I am working on making this blog into a an actual dot com site. I have managed to get it up and running but I am a long way from where I feel I need to be. Any suggestions, tips, and ideas are welcome. So, don’t fret, I will never leave you hanging, in sha Allah. Also, I have been working on so much new material. I have created several notebooks-from homemaking to homeschooling. I also have some DIY ideas, for example, I just made my first No Sew Apron, foam hand soap (using Soft Soap) and more. I will submit links and photos soon, in sha Allah. In the mean time, you can check out my site, http://mahoganymuslimah.com/  I look forward to your comments and suggestions! 🙂
