Today I was looking round the studio and chose the first 3 things that are now part of my everyday life that I might never have used if I hadn’t made a healthy lifestyle a priority.
1. The weather. Each morning besides the glance out the window technique I always check out the BOM that way I know if it’s a long sleeve jersey or just an armwarmers type of ride.
2. Performance socks. While I know and have worked with performance fabrics I’ve always thought socks are well just socks. Then I tried some performance socks and wow they make such a difference. Am now a total convert to performance socks and feel bad for ever doubting their worth. All my other socks are now in danger of being made into sock animals to give me a reason to buy more performance socks to wear.
3. Camelback water bottles. I remember the fuss when these came out and no one could think how you could improve on the original water bottle design. Improve the design they certainly did. These are now my go to bottle and I use them not only on the bike but in my bags (never leave the house without a bottle of water). The locking system helps prevent any spills when they are in your bag so they are just perfect.
So what are your go to essentials for leading a healthy life?
