Four Secrets to Steal to Stay Healthy Even When You’re Busy— November 24, 2014
In a fast paced world, all the hours of the day are not nearly enough for a modern woman with a busy career. Every minute counts so you’re always on-the-go or perhaps busy with your computer.
With a jam-packed schedule of work deadlines, meetings and special errands, would you be able to eat healthily? How is that possible?
Eliminate unhealthy temptations from your kitchen.
This weekend, clean out your cupboards and refrigerator from all unhealthy food items. Take out everything that’s highly processed or those high in sugar, sodium and trans fat. Throw them away or give them to other people, if you don’t want to waste them. Yes, it’s not bad to indulge in unhealthy snacks from time to time but as much as possible, don’t stock up on these items so as not to encourage higher consumption.
Choose a diet that works for you.
Over the years, various types of diets have emerged to help you achieve a fit and sexy body. But don’t be fooled, not every one of them will work for you. Therefore, before you follow one of them do your research first and evaluate if it’s applicable to your lifestyle.
For instance, my name’s Jill and I’m a Book Marketing Specialist at LitFire Publishing. For years, I have been busily working with self-published authors in terms of book marketing, publicity and distribution. Since I try to cater to their needs promptly, I don’t even have time to spare for a decent meal. Therefore, I need a simple yet healthy diet that will easily fit in with my everyday lifestyle.
I searched for different types of diet and this is how I discovered the Paleo diet. At first, I started reading resources about it and as days passed by, I felt a healthy difference in my body. Now, if you’re thinking of following the same kind of diet, then you better read The Easy Paleo Diet Beginner’s Guide written by Andrea Huffington. This is the ideal reference to help you start a new and healthier lifestyle.
Say no to fast-food products.
No matter how busy you are, it’s not an excuse to eat fast-food meals all the time. You see, there are many ways on how to eat healthy foods amidst a hectic timeframe. An example would be to slice fruits and vegetables like apple, watermelon or carrots before you go to sleep and then store them in the freezer. When you rush to the office in the morning, just grab them and bring them wherever you go. If you prefer, you can prepare your healthy lunch the night before. Moreover, you can set a menu for the week so you don’t have to spend time thinking what to cook for dinner. And if you’re staying late in the office, you can order some healthy dishes from restaurants but never from fast-food chains.
Don’t forget proper hydration.
Drink enough glasses of water daily. This will prevent your body from losing too much fluid which can lead to dehydration. Just carry a water bottle everywhere you go. If you don’t like the taste of water, you can put some fruits in it to add some flavor. And don’t forget to avoid drinking soda as much as possible. Instead, you can drink 100% natural fruit juice throughout your day.
Too busy to be healthy? Not anymore. After knowing all these tips, you can work hard on your career while still taking care of your health. Now, that’s what a real modern and career-oriented woman would do.
