2. Snack All Day
As an adult we often push ourselves until we are famished and then we eat a big meal. If you were to eat like a kindergartener you would have snack time and graze rather than gorge. This is a major shift in your outlook on eating and can reap slimming benefits for your body!
3. Never over Eat
Just watch a kindergarten child eat as they graze on each meal and never gorge. They do not want to waste another minute sitting when the world is their playground. They want to get up, get going and meal time is often a nuisance to their day. If you took this philosophy as an adult, I bet this would help you to slim down!
4. Run on Your Own Playground
Remember as a child when you would take over the playground running from one play equipment to the next. This was your oasis and you never wanted to leave. So perform your own playground exercises like tricep dips at a park bench, step ups and of course run for fun!
5. Take a Nap Everyday
Nap time should be mandatory in everyone’s life every single day. This will allow you to refocus, rejuvenate and boost your energy. Nap time can also help to slim you down by increasing your metabolism. So put your feet up and take a 15 minute snooze to better your day!
6. Play Your Own Games of Tag
