Anyone has sixty minutes to spare, in order to improve their health. According to most experts, small steps are the best approach to take when attempting to make long-lasting changes in your lifestyle. These resourceful tips below will show you how, too! By starting with these small suggestions below, you’ll not only save time, but you’ll also be on your way to improved health and wellbeing. Check them out!
 
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. If standing, be sure to keep your shoulders back and your spine straight. Practice perfecting your posture daily, and you’ll look more confident and reduce back pain.
 
Cut your salt intake.

Just about every delicious food has salt in it. But, did you know that too much salt in your diet can lead to high blood pressure and increase your odds of weight gain? Next time you eat a meal, don’t automatically sprinkle your dish with salt. Instead, choose herbs and spices, or look for a low-sodium seasoning option.
 
Take off the weight.

Do you often tote a purse, computer bag, or backpack to work? Though all essential to your daily routine, a heavy purse or bag can be bad for your back and shoulders when carried often. Lighten the load by removing any unnecessary items from your bag and replacing full-size items – like medications and hand lotion – with miniature or travel-size versions.
