Quick Fixes for Better Health

Improving your health doesn’t need to take long. There are some things you can do in about a minute that will make you and your family safer and feeling better. 

Check your posture: Make sure that you are sitting correctly when at a desk. Your knees should not be bent more than 90 degrees and your back should be straight.

Cut your salt: Instead of adding extra salt to your food, sprinkle on some herbs and spices.

Take off the weight: A heavy purse, computer bag, or backpack can be bad for your back and shoulders. Lighten the load by removing any unnecessary items. 

Get new shoes: If your running or workout shoes are more than a year old, you may need to upgrade. Do this to help prevent problems with your heels and feet.

Give your mood a boost: If you have been feeling stressed, take time to lighten up. Going out to dinner with friends, catching a funny movie, or going away for a weekend can release brain chemicals that make you feel better. 

Turn off the TV: Watching television right before bed can lead to sleep problems. Instead of watching TV in bed, turn it off and listen to some relaxing music before you go to bed. 

Put on the sunscreen: Take time each day to put some sunscreen on before heading out. Even just driving to work can be enough sun time to cause long-term damage.
