The clock is ticking – and there’s no better way to combat it than setting the extra time aside to address your health and wellbeing. If you only have sixty seconds to spare, then that’s more than enough time to get started. In the opinion of many experts, it’s actually more beneficial to attempt lifestyle changes on a smaller scale, anyway. Begin your journey today with these simple suggestions that will help you feel better in a minute or less.

Check your posture.

Make sure that you are sitting correctly when at a desk. Your knees should not be bent more than 90 degrees and your back should be straight. If standing, be sure to keep your shoulders back and your spine straight. Practice perfecting your posture daily, and you’ll look more confident and reduce back pain.
 
Cut your salt intake.

Just about every delicious food has salt in it. But, did you know that too much salt in your diet can lead to high blood pressure and increase your odds of weight gain? Next time you eat a meal, don’t automatically sprinkle your dish with salt. Instead, choose herbs and spices, or look for a low-sodium seasoning option.
 
Take off the weight.

Do you often tote a purse, computer bag, or backpack to work? Though all essential to your daily routine, a heavy purse or bag can be bad for your back and shoulders when carried often. Lighten the load by removing any unnecessary items from your bag and replacing full-size items – like medications and hand lotion – with miniature or travel-size versions.
