JAN :: 5 Simple Ways to Getting Healthier
5 Simple Ways to Getting Healthier
January is the obvious month to kick off an all-new health-related monthly series here at The Trend Tribe! This month we’ve got a great list of 5 simple things you can do this month to get healthier. On your mark, get ready, go!
Clean your makeup brushes.
I am totally guilty of going months without cleaning my makeup brushes. Gross, right? It’s no wonder why my skin is constantly breaking out. Our makeup brushes are filled with bacteria, debris, and dead skin and every morning we go about sweeping those petri dishes across our beautiful faces. It’s time to give your own brushes a quick bath for a better complexion.
Get yourself a new pair of sneakers.
Is one of your 2013 resolutions to lose weight? Well then, it’s time to hit the pavement in a new pair of cute trainers. Sneakers are only meant to last 500 miles before the support and cushioning starts to break down. This means if you are in your kicks for at least 60 minutes a day, then you should expect to replace them every six months. New shoes, new you.
Get together with your closest girlfriends.
Laughter is said to be the best medicine. One of my favorite things to do is get together with the girls and just laugh until my face hurts. Perhaps, a glass of wine or a cocktail is somewhere in the mix but everything in moderation, right? There is something to be said about shared experiences and nothing beats giggling with your besties.
Kick BPA to the curb.
BPA is bad. If you didn’t know, BPA is a chemical used in plastics as well as found in the lining of most canned food. Studies suggest that exposure to BPA may cause human reproduction disorders, heart disease in women, memory loss, breast cancer, and asthma. Look for items labeled “BPA-Free” and opt for fresh foods instead of canned. It’s a small start, but a good one.
Load up on fresh winter fruits.
Speaking of fresh foods…though stores may still carry summer fruits, stick with what’s in season! Citrus reigns supreme during the winter months and there is such a variety of oranges to choose from. Clementines, blood oranges, and Cara Caras all taste so good this time of year and the vitamin C and extra fiber will do you some good.
