Wouldn’t it be great if you had an expert telling you how to live life properly so that you could always be sure that you were doing the best for yourself that you could? Well, although we can’t give you a personal expert in every field to help you get through daily life, we can certainly give you some helpful hints and tips to help you on your way!
We’ll start with your feet and some helpful advice from a qualified podiatrist. It’s summer time after all, so it is time to slip into those flip flops and sexy sandals. A few helpful tips on how to treat your feet are important right now, and we should start with what kind of shoes that you should wear. You will hear a lot that wearing flats all the time or rocking heels permanently will be bad for you in the long run, but in reality, every woman is different and this means that the type of shoe will depend on the natural shape of your own feet.
Start by sitting down and placing your leg out in front of you. How does your foot fall? This will tell you whether or not you are better wearing flats or heels – if the foot falls in a dancing position, much in the same way as a ballet dancer’s would, you can happily wear high heels (around 3 or 4 inches) to your heart’s content. If the foot falls directly at a right angle, you should probably just be content with wearing flats. Of course, if your foot falls somewhere in the middle, you are going to want to find a happy medium – perhaps heels around one or two inches would be right.
It pays to be sensible of course; wear shoes that are right for your feet, make sure that you are wearing the right shoe size, (getting professionally measured is a must) and generally take care of your feet, and you will be on your way to living life as the experts do in no time at all.
We are going to move a little higher up the body now, and to be more precise, your midriff. Your diet, especially in summer, is important, not only to make you look good on the outside, but also to ensure that you feel good on the inside. You will often hear a lot of contradicting snippets of information when it comes to food, but thankfully, we have a few helpful hints from a professional to get you nicely on your way.
One thing that we are told, and a professional actually backs up, is that you shouldn’t eat too late. This means that eating after around 8pm is probably a very bad idea. Have you ever noticed that you get heartburn when you lay down in bed after a good meal? This is because your tummy naturally produces more acid after you have eaten to help digest it all, so when you eat late at night, your stomach is working overtime, leaving you with a rather nasty case of heartburn in many cases.
Sticking with the stomach theme, organic produce is something that often comes up in many debates. It is usually said that organic food contains less in the form of toxins than other products but many professionals actually claim that this might not be true. You may not have the toxins associated with pesticides and other chemicals, but the plants still ward off invaders somehow, so you will have some toxins to deal with.
Supplements are another topic that is often debated, and although in certain cases such as with pregnant women folic acid supplements are a good idea, it has been shown that spending money on healthy eating rather than supplements can often prove to be a much better idea.
Moving further up the body, we come to your teeth. Healthy eating suggests that eating fruit as a snack throughout the day is wise, but teeth experts have suggested that although this may be healthier for your body, it might not be as healthy for your teeth. When you eat fruit, the sugar that is contained within it becomes converted into acid which can erode your teeth over long periods of time. When you bear this in mind, it is probably best to stick to eating fruit along with your dinner, or combining the fruit with plenty of water to rinse the acid down.
These tips have been provided by professionals to give you a better standard of living. Starting with the bottom to the top, you can effectively bust those myths and lead a happier and healthier life with good food, a good digestive system and good teeth!
