A busy lifestyle shouldn’t mean compromising on healthy living!
Along with keeping fit and working out regularly (or so you try!) eating well must remain at the top of your priority list. It’s a simply incredible habit to start making, and has great – and immediate – benefits for your health.
Unhealthy eating habits put you at risk of certain health problems like obesity, diabetes and heart diseases. Making smart (and healthy) food choices can protect you from these common conditions, helping you life a happy and more energetic life!
We understand that not all of us have time to maintain a healthy diet. Between work, kids and any other obligations you have, it’s not unusual for an unhealthy meal or two to slip through the cracks.
Short on time? Luckily, these simple hacks can help you maintain a healthier diet, even if you don’t have the time to prepare nutritious meals every day!
Start your day with a good breakfast
Do you find yourself rushing out the door each morning? Does this often lead to you skipping the most important meal of the day?
Eating breakfast doesn’t only prepare you for the day. It can also impacts your wellbeing in other ways:
- Skipping breakfast makes you less active during the day
- A complete, healthy breakfast improves memory and concentration
Stay hydrated throughout the day
A great piece of healthy advice is to keep a topped-up water bottle by your side throughout the day.
You can even mix things up by filling your cup with water topped with mint leaves, lemon or cucumber. Not only does this keep you hydrated but detoxified too!
Staying hydrated boosts your body’s energy levels and keeps your brain running at optimum performance. It also has long-term benefits by preventing stones
and mineral clumps in your kidneys.
Make water your default beverage choice and begin reaping the immediate benefits of a clearer mind.
Make the microwave your best friend
Pre-prepared food has come a long way in the last couple of years.
Using modern blast freezing techniques, gourmet weekly food delivery services like Your Private Chef can offer easy-to-prepare food that isn’t just healthy, but delicious too.
Best of all, it can be prepared in just minutes using your trusty home or workplace microwave.
Maintaining a healthy diet at work has never been easier… or as tasty!
Cut down on coffee
What we’re suggesting may as well be tantamount to treason, but hear us out: maybe you should cut down on your daily coffee intake.
Coffee lovers may protest that morning (and lunchtime, and afternoon) pick-me-up is what keeps them up all day.
While your coffee habit certainly does that, caffeine consumption can also potentially cause palpitations and even headaches and insomnia.
We’re not saying to cut the morning latte out of your day entirely. But it is a good idea to reduce your caffeine intake to 2-3 cups a day and look for alternative, healthier sources of energy – replace a cup of coffee with a glass of water, and fuel yourself through that 3-o’clock-slump with an apple or other piece of fruit.
