A lot of the time it’s the little things that matter! I know many of you probably are trying to live a healthier lifestyle in 2015, it might even have been your New Year’s resolution, so I thought I’d share with you the little changes you can make to your daily habits for better health in the months to come. It’s easy-peasy!
1. Be desk active!
Sitting down at your desk all day, every day can give you horrible posture, bad blood circulation and make you tired. Try to take short 1 minute breaks throughout the day – a short walk up and down the stairs or a bit of stretching will do wonders!
2. A new bag a day keeps the doctor away!
If you tend to use the same handbag every day for months just because it’s too much of a hassle to swap your important items around take note! When we carry the same bag every day we tend to carry it on the same arm or shoulder. Try to use a backpack if you can or alternate your handbag from one arm or shoulder to the other to avoid shoulder and neck pain, also make sure your bag isn’t too heavily packed. Perhaps an excuse to treat yourself to a new handbag?!
3. Bare your feet!
Your feet are what carry you around every day and sometimes they just need a bit of rest. Shoes can be a strain on your feet so let them out as often as possible. Walking barefoot will let you stand taller and with better posture as well stimulate the soles of your feet, reawakening your body and improving your health!
4. Brush, wash and smile!
No one likes bad breath or food in their teeth so why not carry a travel toothbrush and a mini mouthwash in your handbag? Quickly pop out to the bathroom after your lunch for a quick brush, wash and smile. This way you’ll also keep your oral & dental health up to par in the New Year!
All the best in the New Year!
