Too Busy for Health?

You probably have a million things to do each day – there’s no end to your to-do list at work, then you get home and have to make dinner, do the laundry, clean the bathroom, etc. etc. You’d love to make health a priority, but there’s never any time.

But the catch is… how do you maintain the energy you need to keep going all day long, if you don’t have time for health? At some point, it’ll all come crashing down – if it hasn’t already!

You might start feeling tired and drained… and find it more and more difficult to get through that to-do list.

You might start feeling exhausted by the time you get home… And end up ordering pizza for dinner (and feeling guilty about it afterwards).

And you might end up feeling rundown, completely stressed-out, and overall lousy about life in general!

This is NOT where you want to end up!

Wouldn’t you rather have loads of energy and feel great… to get through your workday, and still have energy to cook a healthy dinner, look after your house, and enjoy some time with your family or friends, or doing something you love?

You can! Here are 3 steps that can help you fit health into your day.

Make a Plan. A little planning can go a long way. Decide the night before what you’ll have for dinner the next day. Pull items out of the freezer. Precut some vegetables. Prep a few healthy snacks for the next day as well.

Keep It Simple. Healthy eating doesn’t have to be fancy or complicated. Keep it simple by having a few quick and easy go-to recipes and snacks on hand. Make a quick stir fry with a frozen vegetable mix. Have a sandwich for dinner. Have fruit and pre-portioned nuts on hand for easy grab-and-go snacks.

Schedule It. Make health a priority by including it in your schedule. Schedule in a 20 minute walk at lunch time. Schedule in a healthy snack at 3 PM – to keep from reaching for the donuts at 4 PM.
