Life has been increasingly becoming busier with each passing day. Here are a few tips by which you can remain healthier by spending just five minutes from your busy schedule.
1. ‘Double-half’ your pizza
When you order, ask for double the tomato sauce and half the cheese. This will help you to automatically cut down on saturated fat and benefit from the antioxidants in tomatoes which can even reverse tumour growth.
2. Gulp Juices in your lunch
Drink a glass of orange juice with your meal to maximize your iron intake. Washing down food with a cup of tea, on the other hand, will inhibit absorption.
3. Boil your dishcloth
Dunk your dishcloth in a saucepan of water with a bit of washing powder and leave it to boil. Studies have revealed that 80 per cent of dishcloths are contaminated with a high number of bacteria, including E.Coli.
4. Plan your meals
Planning your meals for a week will help you eat healthily and avoid wasting food and money. Stock up on healthy snacks to prevent biscuit barrel temptations.
5. Test your pillow
Wornout and unsupportive pillows increase the risk of fatigue and aches — while up to a third of the weight could be made up of dust mites and their droppings.
6. List your wants
Write down everything you eat. Keeping a record of your daily consumption would help you in your weight loss, according to American scientists at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research in Oregon, who studied the dietary habits of 1,700 people over six months.
7. Have a good clear-out
. Get rid of any old make-up as it can lead to nasty eye infections. And bag up out-of-date medicines to take to the pharmacist for safe disposal.
8. Sort out your handbag
Anything over 1.3 kg puts pressure on your back. So empty out old make-up, receipts and loose change. And clean the bottom with an antibacterial wipe.
9. Do skipping
Skipping burns off body fat, works your cardiovascular system, protects your bones from osteoporosis and will put a smile on your face.
