Keeping healthy should be easy, shouldn’t it? Everywhere you look there’s handy little health tips. And, let’s face it, we’ve got more knowledge about the way the human body functions than at any time in the past.
We’ve got better hygiene, better medical care, better availability of various foodstuffs… But modern living also brings with it many things that go against good health. We do far less manual labor – most of us sit at a desk for 8 hours a day. Most of us have cars so we don’t walk anywhere (in fact, according to Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise Study, the average American only walks around 5,000 steps per day).
When you add in the fact that most of us eat far too much processed food (it’s convenient in our always rushing around state, we get that), and you can start to see why various health issues have started to plague us. So with that in mind, this website is dedicated to providing you with easy to follow health tips that can see you improving your physical fitness and wellbeing – all without having to make any drastic adjustments to your current lifestyle.
Below are 5 of our most popular articles that have helped many people like you begin to make those little differences towards a healthier lifestyle.

But that is literally survival, and doesn’t take into account any kind of activity that would increase water loss. It’s currently recommended that you drink 8 x 8oz glasses of water per day for good health. But did you know that by doubling the recommended amount you can benefit from some amazing health benefits. This article will change the way you look at the humble glass of water, that’s for sure…
