5 TIPS FOR HEALTH IN A BUSY WORLD
No matter how strong the intention to exercise, and no matter how heavy the burden of guilt, we continue to wipe away the crumbs from amoral gluten free convenience food. Banana bread, berry frainds, spinach and feta muffins, and Lo Carb protein bars.
We still just can’t seem to get our shit together.
How do I know? Because I struggle with the same issues, there just isn’t the 36 hours we need in a 24 hour day. We are too busy for healthy food, and too flat out with work for exercise!
We flip a mental coin when faced with the decision, one more hour of work? or maybe ill have a quick scroll through Facebook while I’m trying to put my shoes on, go to the bathroom, make a cup of coffee, finish sending my emails etc Instead of heading to the gym, or into the outdoors.
This comment on ………… Old mates post is far more worthy of my time.
As with many things most of us understand and would agree, healthy nurturing and nourishing foods for our bodies is important.
We have also convinced ourselves that exercising regularly and being active is just good old common sense? Its just the crucial issue and mistake WE ALL MAKE is we don’t execute common practise.
It is however POSSIBLE to be BUSY, a PARENT, A MANAGER, A BUSINESS OWNER, a majorly obsessed full time EMPLOYEE with Australias leading BLUE COLLAR WORK ETHIC, and still be healthy.
1) PREP YOUR FOOD ON THE WEEKEND FOR SEAMLESS WEEKDAY FOOD
Chop veggies, salad mix, and saute your protein of choice.
Make some dressing, add some fats (Nuts, avocado etc) assembling during the week into containers will take 5 min
2) LET SOMEONE ELSE DO THE LEG WORK (LEVERAGE)
You may have to still spend a little time in the kitchen, or you can order pre made healthy meals from companies such as
Or get your organic products delivered from companies on the Coast such as Good harvest.
You could even consider paying a friend to prep and sort your meals.
3)- KEEP THE SECRET STASH OF HEALTHY SCOOBY SNACKS
Did anyone read the word scooby and say it like the TV series Scooby Doo?
“Shaaaaaagy have you seen my Scooby Snaaaaacks”
Schedules change and delays are always enavitable.
Having a healthier snack supply on hand is great option
-Mixed nuts (Don’t go nuts on the mixed nuts)
4)-STOP BEING IDLE, SLOTHFUL AND ALARM NEGLIGENT
Yes morning training can be tough, and hitting the snooze button 8000 times feels so much better. But GET THE FUCK up! And get out of bed earlier. We are adults we can do it, we don’t have maths, assembly and form class first up, and your breakfast isn’t waiting for us on the table “Thanks Mum”
Chances are you will miss being active all together if you don’t get up earlier.
It is sooooo much easier to go straight home earlier after work at the end of your day then train in the morning.
But wait……. we could reschedule for Wednesday morning, which more then likely will become Thursday morning, which turns out to maybe be a long run on Saturday in Wednesdays absence, which becomes ah fuck it ill give it a nudge on Monday, start fresh next week, which just doesn’t end up feasible.
Then we hate ourselves, take it out on everyone we know, and eat more shit! Cancel 3 gym memberships Instead of doing the top three points above ^^^^^^^^^^^^ Just GET THE FUCK OUT OF BED EARLIER, then none of this will happen.
5)-WALK IT OUT MATE WALK IT OUT
The average member of my gym sits for majority of their day. Add computers at work, Add sitting down for meals, TV, transport, toilet stops etc, 70% of the day we are on our arse.
Consider walking it out.
Run some errands, take the stairs, stand at your desk, have walking meetings outside (This is the best) park further from your destination. IT ALL ADDS UP.
