Whether you’re a CEO or a stay at home, mom or dad, life tends to get a bit hectic, and usually, the first things we neglect are our bodies. A healthy diet can save you time and money. It’s recommended that you should rather eat many small meals a day than a few large ones so fitting that into your busy schedule could be cheap and easy. Fruits and vegetables are one easy way to get healthy while on your way to your next meeting or between trips taking the kids to the mall and back. Cut up a few apples, a pear, some grapes, and carrots put it in a big Tupperware in the morning, and you’re on your way. A couple of bites now and then during the day and soon you will be feeling alert, energized, and even be losing that unwanted weight you were planning to get rid of when you “have time.”
Healthy eating makes the body more efficient, so you will have more energy, less stress, and wake up feeling fantastic and ready to go! Exercise is also one of those things people often neglect to their detriment. Exercising for just half an hour a day at any time will improve your life more than you could ever imagine. A Pilates class or a yoga session three times a week, for example, will take minimal amounts of your time and improve your outlook and attitude towards everything.
At a Pilates studio or the gym, you will be around people just like you who never thought they would have the time or energy to do it. They made the time to go for that run or sign up for those yoga or Pilates classes and are more refreshed in the mornings, their minds work faster, and their bodies are more efficient. They wake up with less stress, more patience, and so much more energy to tackle those challenges that face them each day.
You won’t fill your expensive sports car with mud, never drive it or service it and expect it to perform, and in more ways, than you think, our bodies are like very fine-tuned sports cars. Everything that we put into our bodies affects our mood, energy, concentration, and even our appearance. Fruit and vegetables every two or three hours during work or errands could drastically change your life, save you money, and make you happy! So a little exercise and healthy eating can cost you next to nothing and allow you to do everything you need to do will a big smile on your face.
