Simple swaps to make for a healthier you

Are you looking to make some healthier changes to your lifestyle, but don't want to go down the whole 'new year, new me' path? This blog post should help you with some really easy changes to implement that will help you have a healthier daily routine - without sacrificing too much!

Add in a daily walk

Whether you already exercise or not, adding an extra daily walk to your routine could do wonders for your health. It doesn't have to be long; 20 minutes around a local park is fine. What's more important is that you are consistent, and go out nearly every day!

Swap meat-based meals for vegetarian protein a few times per week

Meat doesn't have to be unhealthy, but it's inadvisable to consume it in excess. Mix up your diet more by adding in some healthy vegetarian protein such as lentils, chickpeas, tofu, and tempeh, and reducing your meat intake. This will help the environment too!

Swap cigarettes for e-cigs

We all know that smoking cigarettes is awful for your health - so if you do still smoke, take this as your sign to stop! The good news is that nowadays, you don't need to go cold turkey. E-cigarettes are much better for your body (and your wallet), but you'll still get the kick you know from smoking a cigarette. See our full range of e-cigarettes here.

Choose healthier alcohol

Some alcohol is ok for us, even verging on healthy - and some is loaded with sugars and bad carbs, so make sure you choose right. Red wine has quite a few health benefits and can be enjoyed in moderation. If you want to drink something else, gin and slimline tonic is very low calorie. It's best to drink in moderation, of course, but if you do want to have a few, make sure that what you drink isn't loaded with sugar or calories.

As you can see, it's relatively easy to swap a few things and have a healthier lifestyle. This is where progress is made - you'll be much more likely to stick to these simple changes, which will mean a much healthier you!
