When did being healthier become so expensive? Gym memberships, organic food, ergonomic ‘seating solutions,’ – a lot of people are making a lot of money out of helping us to be human!
Of course, our lives are pretty busy these days. Activities that used to answer all of these needs – such as hunting or farming – just don’t slot in neatly with our busy work and family schedules.
But when we buy into the ‘simple’ solutions that businesses are so eager to sell us, we really compromise some of our essential beliefs. The idea that our body and mind should transcend the artificial boundaries of the capitalist patriarchy, for example. (Winking emoji).
Healthy Living Doesn’t Have to Cost a Fortune
You don’t need to buy an eliptical machine, hire a fitness trainer or spend a small forturne on a fancy diet to stay healthy. Just making a few strategic changes to your daily routine can make big differences to your overall health — and it doesn’t have to cost you a dime.
There are tons of easy and affordable things you and your family can do to be healthier. For example, stretching in the morning is good for body and soul. Eating lunch with a friend instead of alone will make you happier and even help you lose weight (if it slows you down and you talk about what you eat!). Walking home from school with the kids instead of picking them up in the car. And that’s just the start.
