Get a spring in your step
Being active is good for your physical and mental health. It's simple, fun and every bit counts. Get outdoors, take the family for a walk, including the dog, or go for a bike ride. At work you can be active too. Take the stairs, try to sit less often and even have walking meetings - it's a thing!
Even if the weather isn't great you can get active with one of our partner gyms:
Eating well is also important, and it doesn't have to be boring. Try eating foods that are naturally low in sugar, salt, saturated and trans fats. Fruit, vegetables and foods that aren't highly processed are generally better for you. They're high in fibre, vitamins and minerals.
The Heart Foundation recommends you aim to eat at least five serves of vegetables and two serves of fruit every day. The amounts vary for children, pregnant women or breastfeeding mothers - visit the Australian Dietary Guidelines or talk to an Accredited Practising Dietitian.
You can grab a range of discounted eCards to use when buying healthy snacks or food to take on the go.
Remember to check the packaging when you’re in the supermarket. Most foods have a Nutrition Information Panel (NIP). Use the quantity per 100g or quantity per 100ml column when comparing nutritional values of products. This way you’re comparing like for like. Serving sizes vary depending on the food and brand.
Relaxation is also an important part of health and fitness. With 15% off treatments and products at endota spa, there’s no excuse not to.
