Our health is our most important asset, without it our quality of life dramatically drops. I’m not a big fan of trying to make major changes to my health and fitness, as I find that it feels too dramatic and I don’t keep up. Instead, I prefer to make simple changes that I can easily integrate into my daily life. That way they’re changes that I can keep up with. Small changes over a long period of time can make a big difference. If you’re hunting for ways to be a little healthier without feeling like a major overhaul, keep reading for my top 3 simple tips for being healthier:
1. Buy Local Fresh Meat
The saying “You are what you eat,” is true. The quality of the food you put into your body is probably one of the biggest factors in how much energy you have and how good you look. Buying the best quality food you can afford is going to be one of the best investments you can make in your family’s health. Obviously everyone has different budgets, so it’s going to be a bit of a balancing act between what you buy and how much you spend. Where possible, I always suggest buying local fresh meat over getting the mass produced stuff in the supermarkets. A good butcher will be able to tell you exactly where a piece of meat comes from, and how well the livestock are cared for. Stemmler Meats offer great meat packages that can save you serious money, while ensuring high quality meats that you can only find in boutique stores.
2. Don’t Neglect Your Feet
Because our feet are so often covered, we usually don’t think much of them until we have a problem. But if you consider how much your feet do for you, you’ll quickly realise they’re very important and deserve a little extra care. If you’ve started having any foot pain, or notice that your shoes wear unevenly, it may be time to invest in customized inserts. Proper inserts allow you to walk more comfortably, avoid foot pain and also other body pain. If your feet are not sitting right it can cause muscle imbalances and pain can radiate up and down your body! Be sure to invest in supportive sustainable sneakers or grab the best custom foot orthotics you can afford and you’ll quickly notice the difference.
3. Start Making Bone Broth
This is such a simple change that can make a huge difference in your energy levels, skin quality, and how your joints feel overall. Modern cooking has turned away from our more traditional methods of using the entire part of the animal. So if you’re not vegan or vegetarian, this is a great way to get back to more traditional cooking styles. You can use bone broth in so many ways, adding it to soups or stews for a nutrient burst. You can drink it on it’s own for a comforting drink. You can even add it to rice, couscous and quinoa to boost the nutritional content of these food staples. If you’re not ready to make it yourself, you can easily buy it in health food stores.
