In spite of the grand health measures many of us take in life, we often fail to realize that it can sometimes be the smallest things that will make a big difference in our long-term health. Although this might seem like a bit of a funny thing, one of the minor things that can actually make a big difference in your health is how big your wallet is, as sitting on a large wallet can put undue strain on your back and can even cause injury to your sciatic nerve. If you happen to have a bulky wallet that you keep in your back pocket – and you are looking to slim down a bit – follow these tips to get your wallet down to a safer and more manageable size!The first thing you will need to do is make sure you are getting rid of any of the things in your wallet that are not necessary – and once you start to really look at your wallet, you will be shocked by just how much of the stuff in there is not necessary at all! There is no reason to keep receipts in your wallet, there is no reason to keep pictures, and in fact, there is hardly any reason for you to keep cash in your wallet! You should start each day with only the essentials in your wallet – that is to say, your driver’s license, a credit card, a debit card, and enough cash to make sure you have some on you in case of emergency. After you have gotten rid of all these extras from your wallet, your old wallet will become much thinner, but even with this, the wallet itself might be bulky; if you truly want to protect your back, consider buying an ultra-thin wallet such as the All ETT Billfold or the Geoffrey Beene Mirage Slim Passcase Wallet. With your excess items cut out and a thin wallet in hand, you can head out for the day without a big lump in your back pocket that you are stuck sitting on all day long!
