Everybody is busy. We never have enough time to do everything we need to in a day. We're dropping the kids off, headed to work, picking up groceries, stopping by the cleaners or headed to meetings. And all the while we are doing things for everyone else sometimes, we often simply forget about what's best for you. With your busy lifestyle, Often you begin to neglect what is good for you and begin to simply resort to what is convenient..
Everyone knows how important your health is. But when we get too busy this is one of the first things that begins to go. Stress and a hectic lifestyle can wreak havoc on the body. We always need quick solutions to our fast paced lifestyle, but that is not always good for you. You have to commit to what's best and most healthy in order for your busy lifestyle to be sustainable.
- What can you do? One of the first things you can do is to make sure your have healthy eats in your home. Ditch the chips, dip and chocolate and replace it with veggies and fruits. Fruits and veggies are low in calories and filled with vitamins. This is what you need when on the go.
- What else can you do to maintain a healthy lifestyle in this fast paced world? Make breakfast a priority. I know some people just don't want it or have time for it, but breakfast jump starts your day and provides the necessary energy and nutrients needed to carry you though out the day. Skipping breakfast also can lead to obesity simple because you are starving the body for extended periods of time and when it finally does get food it stores more because it assumes there will not be more later.
- Oh and yes. You need that water. There's a saying that says, 'Water does the body good,' and yes it does. Your body is made up of 70% water. If you deprive it of what it needs, it definitely has a harsh way of letting you know. Dehydration can devastate the body. Even before your coffee, make sure you get a full glass of water to start the day.
Give your body what it needs and not what it wants. An iced cold coke may taste good but that is not what you need. You wouldn't put windshield wiper fluid in the oil tank of your car would you? Then why fill your body with over sweetened caffeinated water to start the day. Give it the fuel it needs and you can take on any tasks for the day.
