Time and other demands on running and working in a newsagency can challenge the health choices we make. I know I have succumbed too often to poor choices in shopping centre food courts.
One way we can help ourselves, our staff and our customers is to give prominence to health conscious magazines and issues of magazines promoting healthy recipes. We can also ensure that any topped food magazines put in the lunch room offer healthy choices over less healthy food.
With your newsagency most likely one of your most valuable assets you owe it to the business and those who depend on it to be fit and healthy. Exercise and diet are the keys to being fit and healthy. Many magazines you sell today have good advice on this. These are the magazines we should be paying more attention to: for our future and those who rely on us.
While I am no fitness expert, I have found wearing a pedometer to count steps and cooking some recipes in Diabetic Living and Australian Healthy Food Guide to be useful in feeling better.
