Urban living can be tough on your health, concrete jungles are not exactly good for your health and while this might not be visible at first, over time, it can impact your overall health & well-being. Air quality, for example, is not always ideal when you live in an urban environment, and with your health in mind, here are a few tips to stay healthy when living in a city.
Fresh fruit & vegetables
There are small organic farms that sell their produce online and with free delivery, you can enjoy fresh, organic fruit and vegetables, which is essential for good health.
Create a home gym
Start with a Marathon Fitmall Treadmill, which is available online. Then you can add some free weights, a couple of dumbbells and a weight training station. Put some mirror tiles on one wall and you are good to go. With your own gym at home, you can say goodbye to those expensive gym subscriptions and it won’t take long before you recoup your investment.
Get around on a bicycle
Investing in a mountain bike is one way to maintain a level of fitness, plus you will save money on transport costs and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time. If you live on the outskirts of a city, you are probably within riding distance of some nice trails; you should explore the region to find the best places to ride.
We all know that some cities are very polluted and when in such an area, it is a good idea to wear a face mask. Some people prefer to use an air purifier at home, which is always a good idea; search online for a supplier and find the best deals. Click here for ways to deal with cold weather.
Find a nice park and enjoy early morning walks in a natural environment; this is the perfect way to start your day and some people like to end their day with an evening walk.
Take up jogging
If you prefer actual running to a treadmill, there must be some good jogging routes where you live. A jog a day keeps the doctor away, or so they say, and you will feel better after working out for a 3–4-mile run. When it rains, you can use your treadmill, so your running schedule won’t be affected.
You can add some greenery to your living space, which does make a difference; take a trip to your nearest garden centre and choose some lush, tropical plants to adorn your home.
Take a daily A-Z supplement
Some people who live in the city don’t exactly have a healthy diet and if you are lacking essential vitamins or minerals, your immune system can become stressed and you can become ill. This is especially pertinent if you are over 50 and we recommend taking a daily A-Z supplement.
We should all take care of our overall health & well-being and we hope that the above tips help you to lead a healthier life in the city.
