Staying healthy doesn’t need to cost a fortune, however, investing in your health now can make a big difference later in life for you.
This isn’t about buying expensive creams or buying organic only, it is about investing in the right place now to make sure you have a healthy balanced lifestyle going forward and anything you face your body and mind is in the best shape to face it.
Is there anything you really can do to help your future health?
Eating healthy is more expensive than junk food sometimes which is why so many people reach for convenience these days. This to me seems madness! Not everything is more expensive, you can get fresh fruit and veg relatively cheaply however if you are cooking a meal from scratch it can soon start to stack up when you look at the costs of a pre-made meal.
Try not to let this put you off though, if you can, cook from scratch where possible, at least you know exactly what is going in it.
Where you can also try and take some multivitamins to help your immune system over time, these are not to be used as a replacement for the nutrients you get from fruit and veg etc but as an additional help.
Have regular checkups!
Don’t avoid lives regular checkups, you know what I mean here! There is a whole host of things we should be doing to ensure we are looking after ourselves, they include:
- Regular dentist appointments
- Eye appointments
- Smear tests
- Breast screening
- Bowel cancer screening
They might not all apply to you or maybe not at your current age, but if you do ensure you attend all your appointments when they are due, you will find that you will feel that little bit better knowing that you are fit and healthy.
There are other ways to check your health too, which would involve a little investment. Have you ever thought that you are having symptoms of an allergy at certain points but are unable to put your finger on just what is causing it? Rather than avoiding it, you are now able to pay to have a test to get this checked out. You could try and push for a referral through your doctor, however, with our healthcare system now at the max capacity that may be a bit of a struggle. If you would like answers and quickly, Klarify do a home testing kit that looks at 294 allergens and sees if you are allergic to any of those.
The test is carried out in your own home and you post it off, then sit back and wait for the results. Once you have these you are able to make the relevant adjustments in life to make it a little easier for you.
Don’t invest in lots of health and fitness plans!
Getting fit and healthy doesn’t mean breaking the bank balance.
I know that the new bikes such as the Peleton bike etc look amazing and I’m sure can give you great results over time, they are also really expensive and not always an option for everyone. There are plenty of alternative ways to work out at home without investing much or any money at all. These can include:
- Getting outdoors and walking – A great free way to exercise, clear your head and get some fresh air.
- Following youtube videos – Youtube has thousands of workout videos that are all free of charge. Perfect for those of us who like to work out in the comfort of our own home.
One thing I have been taught this year is life is short, you never know what is just around the corner waiting for us. Even those of us who are fit and healthy can still face issues, it is all about finding that right balance that makes you feel healthy and fit enough to take on the world whilst still enjoying that cake every now and then.
