#HealthHacks: 5 Ways To Say Goodbye To Your Unhealthy Lifestyle

Mary posted on 06 March

Two months into the New Year and if you’ve given up on all your health resolutions, we feel you. So to help you out, we’ve put together a list of five things that will help you integrate wellness into your lifestyle.

Posture Matters

Head up, shoulders back, stomach in. The importance of correct posture is something that you cannot underestimate. So whether you’re at work or just lazing around at home, make sure that your body posture is something that you don’t take for granted.

#LBBRecommends: One hour of yoga can help you reduce muscular pain, reduce stress, keep your centre intact and increase your flexibility. 

Work Out When You Can

Yes we know that you don’t have the time or the stamina to work out after a hectic day. So why not do it while watching your favourite shows, or listening to an audio version of your favourite book?

#LBBRecommends: Whether you prefer Scandal, Game of Thrones Orange Is The New Black, or Modern Family {or any other show for that matter} there is something for everyone! TV and workout? Its a win-win situation. 

Keep Injuries At Bay

Lets face it, we slave through the week, juggling personal and professional commitments. This in turn puts a lot of strain on our bodies, which results in our necks and backs taking a severe hit.

#LBBRecommends: Viopatch, a pain relief patch that you use to get rid of  neck and back pain, safely and effectively. Viopatch is easy to apply {like a modern Band-Aid} and once it in place, it provides lasting pain relief for 12 hours. It can be used to provide relief from pain caused by day-to-day activities {long hours on the computer, commute} or something more serious {like swelling and sprains}.

The best part? Since it is a herbal patch, it’s free of any kind of smell.

Drink Enough Water

Everyone knows that water is an essential ingredient for a healthy life. How can you include more water in your diet? For starters, switch all your aerated drinks with water; this will not only reduce unnecessary calories but will also rehydrate your body to keep it more active and energetic.  

#LBBRecommends: Buy some pretty sippers, so that you always have water handy, whether you are working at your desk or in the gym. 

Walk Everywhere

One of the simplest forms of exercise is walking. The best part? Whatever your age or stamina level, walking is sure to help you reach your fitness goals faster and more effectively. Start by walking at least 10 minutes daily, and slowly take it up to an hour, so that staying healthy, is soon a part of your daily regime. 

#LBBRecommends: Whenever possible, opt to walk instead of using your car/bike. Not only will it improve your health, it will cause less damage to the environment. Win-win right?
