Keeping Fit and Healthy on a Budget

It is said that eating healthy food and doing exercise is a privilege only the affluent can enjoy. However, this is not necessarily true. Here are some tips you can follow to keep fit and healthy on a budget.

Bring your own meals to work

At work, rarely do people order healthy food, and if they do, it is extremely expensive to eat it on a daily basis. However, you don’t want to wind up eating fatty fast food. At home, take 20 minutes to prepare something like rice with chicken breast or vegetables for lunch plus a fruit or yoghurt for dessert to bring to work. To make this job easier, check out for example  some healthly recipes or  online.

Walk or use a bicycle

A car or a bus doesn’t have to be your only means of transport, nor a gym the only place to exercise. Depending on the distance to work, see if you can walk your way there, or your way back, or ride a bicycle. This is a great way to include work out to our daily routine without taking free time to do so. Another tip is using the stairs instead of the elevator. Try stepping with your ankle first, and then with the rest of your foot to focus the exercise on your gluteus muscles.

Take off your make up before going to bed

You don’t need to buy expensive moisturizers to have a good skin at all. Remember to take your make up off before going to bed, and washing your face with a neutral soap so your skin won’t get dry. After doing this, apply any face moisturizer. More important than buying an expensive moisturizer is having your skin clean and prepared for absorbing moisturizer.

  1. Well cooking your own healthy food isn’t that bad, buying it at a restaurant or the like can be extremely expensive! There are healthy foods you can prep in advance for several meals as well. Quiche for instance is great for this.

  2. My husband brings ingredients to make a simple lunch at work. He has a fridge available, so he keeps dressing there and brings bagged salad greens and canned beans to make a salad. And he walks to and from the bus stop, which is quite a ways, perhaps seems longer on the days he has canned food in his backpack.
