When I brush my teeth, which takes about 5-7 minutes, I add one more useful habit. Every morning and evening, brushing my teeth in the bathroom, I lift my right leg back as high as possible and hold it while I brush my upper teeth.

A straight healthy back guarantees sound sleep, good memory performance, eliminates headaches, and, most importantly, is appealing to the opposite sex.

Leg crossing is very harmful to the back and contributes to the rapid development of scoliosis. Watch the films of the 50s, where women’s posture was a real standard of beauty. So let us return to this fine tradition.
Walk more. Especially up and down the stairs. Just do it right – ascending, step on the heel, not on the toes.

You will feel pressure immediately. Moreover, you need no gym. This exercise can be done any time, even while you are in an elevator. If you do 50 approaches a day, you will soon see positive changes.
Once I lost 2 kilos by only doing housework. Why not combine two useful habits? When washing the dishes, tense your biceps. When washing the floor, strain the muscles of the hips, buttocks and the abdomen.
