Healthier Living Made Easy

Sep 01, 2015 04:31AM ● Published by Family Features

Living a healthy lifestyle can be a challenge when faced with a lack of time and the ease and availability of convenient foods. There’s no time like the present, however, to get your body in tip-top shape. The impact of good health on your quality of life, regardless of age or physical ability, can be far reaching. From controlling weight by eating right, even on a busy schedule, to making that smile shine a little brighter, use these ideas to help you become a happier, healthier you.

Healthy Salad

Balance Brings Results
Managing your weight doesn’t mean giving up flavor and convenience. Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating is designed for busy lifestyles, providing healthy food choices that take the work out of planning. Each week, 21 freshly-prepared, portion- and calorie-controlled meals are delivered to your door, from crunchy salads to stuffed peppers. Unlike other prepared plans, meals include fresh fruits and vegetables, and come in a variety of delicious options. To learn more, visit seattlesutton.com or call 800-442-3438.

REACH Complete Care

Clean Your Teeth with Style
Only 1 in 10 moms feel like they have bathroom clutter under control, according to a survey conducted by Kelton Global. With the new REACH Complete Care 8-in-1 Mouth Rinse it’s easy to transform clutter and chaos into clean and serene. Featuring a convenient toothbrush holder for the REACH Curve Toothbrush, the bottle’s sleek design upgrades your normal routine while looking great on the counter. Both are available at Walgreens and CVS for $6.99, or visit www.Reachtoothbrush.com to learn more.

Yoga Mats

Stretch Your Limits
Aside from the physical benefits associated with yoga, including weight loss, increased energy and improved flexibility, it can help manage stress and the effects it can have on the body and mind. Because of its rise in popularity and the different ways to practice yoga, it has never been easier to do in the comfort of your home. Getting your own yoga mat, available at local sporting goods stores, is an inexpensive way to help sculpt your mind and body.

Activity Trackers

Monitor Activity on the Go
Keeping track of your personal metrics, such as steps walked in a day, quality of sleep, heart rate and calories consumed, can be time consuming. Wearable wireless-enabled activity trackers automate this task and allow you to easily log your data on your smartphone or computer while also keeping up-to-the-second track of your progress. Fitness trackers, which are available at most local sporting goods and electronics retailers, can help you identify areas for improvement and reach your goals.
