Cheap or Free “Health Strategies.”

Sometimes it seems like our attempts to live well and eat good are often thwarted by the price of certain foods or supplements.  Real, high quality food can be a bit pricey.  In fact, it is probably THE major expense in a health lifestyle.  It comes down to priorities.  People like to say that it is too much, but we spend millions and millions and fast food, restaurants, alcohol, cigarettes, and many other things too mind boggling to discuss.  Just random things that add up to large amounts of money over time.  Anyway, this article is going to mention some cheap or free health techniques that more just take time or participation rather than money.  By no means a complete list.

-SLEEP

-REST

-PLAY/LEISURE TIME

-SUNSHINE

-EXERCISE (sometimes money required but not for the basics.)

-MUSIC

-FRESH AIR

-STRESS RELIEF and MENTAL/EMOTIONAL TIME

-SOCIAL LIFE/COMMUNITY LIFE

-SELF-DEVELOPMENT

-IMPROVING FAMILY LIFE

-IMPROVING SPIRITUAL LIFE

-COMPLEX THINKING/PLANNING EXERCISES

-CREATING/FOLLOWING A LIFE PLAN

-HOBBIES/SPORTS

The list could go on for a while, but you get the point.  Remember that nature spends no money.  So try to think of things that you can do without spending a lot.  You don’t need a bunch of expensive supplements or equipment to improve things in your life.  We haven’t had this stuff long anyway.  So, the basic premise here is to TAKE CARE of yourself the old-fashioned way.  I really think we have gotten sucked into this modern-day age of marketing and media telling us that we NEED all these supplements to be healthy or happy.  The truth is that we populated the planet without any of these things and in general were much healthier before.  So be creative, do what feels right and makes sense.  Don’t let not being able to buy everything get in the way of doing something for yourself in the present.
