Fitting healthy habits into your already jam-packed day can sometimes seem impossible. However, if you do, you’ll find yourself with extra reserves of energy that will lower your stress and help you get through life’s challenges. Isn’t that what we all want?
Here are a few things you can start doing right now to make healthy habits a relatively painless part of your routine:
Cut back on the amount of soda and coffee you drink. Sugar and caffeine dehydrate you and create false energy rushes followed by crashes, which are energy-depleting.
Take the time to plan healthy meals for the week. Spend 15 minutes or so on mapping out your meals and creating a shopping list for the ingredients you do not have on hand. If you have a plan for dinner that will help you avoid relying on less healthy take-out or fast food choices.
Pack your lunch the night before. You’ll have given yourself the gift of extra time in the morning and you will assure that you have a healthy meal during the day. Don’t forget to pack snack items so you can avoid the vending machine.
Cook double batches of whatever you’re cooking. When you prepare dinner, especially on weekends, cook extra and freeze to use for another dinner or lunch. Then, you’ll have a healthy meal ready to go when you are.
Whenever possible, walk. Increase the amount of time you can walk, versus sit or drive. It doesn’t take that much extra time to park a bit farther from the store entrance.
Get enough sleep. Even if you gain more time in your day by cutting back on sleep, you will be less productive throughout the day, as your energy level and cognitive functioning will be reduced.
