If you’re a Pakistani living abroad, or a local citizen, or a kid, or an adult, or just a living breathing creature in Pakistan you’re probably hearing the word PSL a lot these days. Wherever you are, and whatever you do, if you’re a Pakistani you know who Misbah ul Haq is. The captain that the nation loves, the captain that the nation scrutinizes never however losing the immense respect and expectations they have from him. The man who led the national cricket team to countless victories and the man who despite all odds is supremely fit even at 40. In 2016, when Misbah paid a record breaking tribute to the Pakistan Army by doing push-ups after scoring a century, the entire world went into frenzy. Nevertheless, for a man of his age and stature to pull off an act of celebration like that goes to show not only how dedicated he was but also spoke volumes of his fitness regime. So if you’re a die-hard cricket fan, or a dedicated fitness freak, or just someone who’s looking to jump the fitness band wagon then this post is for you!
You are what you eat
Although this is not a weight loss post but the calorie count and nutritional value of whatever you eat contributes greatly in how you look like! Eat every 2-3 hours, no matter what, you should have at least 5-8 meals each day. Pre-plan and prepare your meals ahead of meal times and ensure that each meal intake consists of a food from the three fundamental food groups namely carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Inculcating clean eating habits into your lifestyle will not only keep you energized throughout the day but will also leave you feeling fresh and confident about yourself.
Be body smart
Endurance, balance and speed are key features of any stellar athlete’s fitness regime. Being body smart is to know exactly how the human body works, how it functions, how it is triggered, how each part of the body coordinates with the other to produce unique movements. Our bodies are very wise. They know things our conscious minds don’t and can’t know in any other way.
Make healthcare a priority
Following a healthy diet and working out regularly may get you the results you’re looking for but they cannot compensate for the expertise of a healthcare specialist. Most athletes have 24/7 accessibility to world class doctors. However, now thanks to the age of digitization you can also be one of the people who can access a doctor, anytime, anywhere.
Don’t know who to talk to? If you suspect you might have a physical or mental health issue, you can now book an appointment with a doctor without having to leave your home!
