Lately, there has been a lot of talk about healthy living. It is almost impossible isn’t it? What, with the rise in the cost of living, one can barely afford a gym membership. We spend most days at our places of work, meaning the food we find around us is rarely up to the cooking standards we like, is repetitive, boring and unfriendly to the pocket.
Here are five tips that will ensure you not only save on spending but also live well and healthy in this economy.
Water on the go:
Water is good for the skin, but it is also used as a weight-loss strategy. Water simply makes people feel full, and as a result, leads to consumption of fewer calories. Water also helps you stay refreshed and alert.
That touch of fruit:
We have all heard of the expression an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Fruits are a good source of vitamins and minerals, and for their role in preventing vitamin C and vitamin A deficiencies. People who eat fruit as part of an overall healthy diet generally have a reduced risk of chronic diseases. So carry a fruit to the office. In fact, some studies have shown that the smell of oranges can help diminish stress and result to a better mood.
Pack your lunch:
We are very particular about what we eat as human beings. I understand that sometimes it is difficult to carry your own food to the office especially if you live alone. However, if you are looking to cut down on expenses as well as eat healthy, then packing your own food to work is the way to go.
Google is your friend:
I am convinced that there is nothing Google doesn’t know. If you are looking for that perfect recipe, Google has it. The search engine on Google will lead you through all your questions. As long as you don’t make major medical decisions and finances based on what you get from Google, you are good.
Free fitness tutorials:
If you cannot walk to work because of the distance from your home to the office, then YouTube has all the tutorials you need to have a fit body. There is no need to strain your finances on a gym membership when you can get a free tutorial on how to work on your body and get the shape you always wanted.
Life doesn’t have to be too complicated and needlessly expensive
