Here are 9 amazing ways to lose weight in 2020 without going to a gym.


  1. Drink more water
  • Water is life.
  • Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water or tea daily.
  • More importantly, when you feel hungry, drink water first and wait 20 minutes before eating.
  1. Walk regularly
  • Walk 20 to 60 minutes four to five times a week.
  • It also helps keep your body and your brain healthy.
  • Use it as a way to get in touch with your thoughts. Walking will keep you alert and be present. Take deep breaths in and out while walking to help reduce stress levels.
  1. After 9 P.M. put all your gadgets away
  • Spending less time on your computer, tablet or phone; in general, it’s always a good idea before bedtime.
  • Your brain needs time to relax before you go to sleep.
  • Spending too much time on social media before bedtime can wreck your brain with worries, anxiety and fear!
  1. Do the things that make you well
  • This is a first for each day. Because your well being is dependent on you doing the things you love.
  • If you’re not spending time each day doing something you love, you will feel unfulfilled.
  • If you don’t have time, you must make time. It should be as important as getting up daily.
  1. Read in your bed
  • I know that it gets harder to read with so many distractions in our lives.
  • Read anything you can find: Bible, story book, memoirs, DIY books, poetry, etc.
  1. Review the tapestry of your life
  • What would you like to accomplish or do before checking out in this life? Begin to work toward it little by little.
  1. Be gentle with yourself
  • Stop being hard on yourself! Forgive yourself and move on a new direction.
  • You can’t change the past, but you can choose a future that will make you better and happier.
  1. Practice thankfulness
  • Remind yourself that your day could have gone much worse. But you are alive, healthy and loved.
  1. Try new things
  • As often as you can, try something new. Allow yourself to dream big and find the things you’re passionate about.
  • When you live a life filled with what you’re passionate about, it makes you a happier and more fulfilled person.
  • After all, life’s not about how much time you spend in the gym trying to lose weight, or how many calories you eat or how many calories you burn daily — it’s about finding joy, fulfillment and love. Life is a balance.
