No matter how overworked you are, or time-strapped, there is no reason for you not to enjoy high quality, delicious, and nutritious foods. It is not enough reason to say that since you are busy with work, you have no choice but to gobble down junk food or any food you see lying around. It is also not even enough reason to not devote just one hour a day to move and exercise so that you do not risk yourself to all sorts of diseases by sitting the whole day.
Below are some of the ways you can meet the demands of a business with a work-life balance.
#1 No Matter How Rushed, Eat The Right Kind of Foods
While finding time to exercise in such a situation can be a little trickier but not impossible, eating right is certainly even more doable!
The act of eating takes a similar amount of time, whether the foods you are eating are healthy or not. If the time for preparing healthy foods is your main concern, then you can just order online. Countless restaurant and food delivery services have their own apps now that you can use to your advantage.
Restaurants that serve high-quality, nutritious cuisines are now one app or one call away. They’ll be at your office door in a jiffy and you can avoid all types of stomach and heart problems by dumping the highly processed meal you planned on wolfing down originally.
There are simply many options now to avoid eating healthy.
#2 Get an App-based, Class-Based Fitness Membership Program
Today, there are already fitness programs that recognize commitment can be an issue. IF you are worried about getting a gym membership and never really attending in the end, then you can get ClassPass and the like. Such monthly fitness membership programs give you the flexibility to access all types of workout classes in different studios and gyms and even offer wellness perks.
You can book a class anytime through your phone with just a click. You can go to a yoga class in a studio that is near that meeting you had in downtown, or attend Pilates when you suddenly had free time. Getting individual monthly yoga or Pilates memberships in one studio can cost you.
Chances are if you are busy, these memberships will just truly go to waste, so opt for class-based fitness programs instead. If you compute the costs, you’d be so much better off too. Plus, the sheer amount of workout options available to you can add a hint of excitement and push you out of your office chair.
Seriously, being up to your neck with work does not mean you should be coup up in your office the whole day.
If you are going to eat, opt to do it with someone else, a family member, a friend, or a new person. You’ll be reminded that there is more to life than what you have currently going on. You’ll have a good conversation with someone who’s feeling left out with all the work you do and realize that work-life balance is so much important. You’ll meet a potential life partner than make all the work you are doing feel so much more worth it too!
Take advantage of those dating apps and meet new people from time to time.
#4 Read, Listen to Music, Dance in Your Office
The nice thing in today’s world is that you can do everything and anything even without disengaging from your laptop or phone. You can read through e-reading apps, listen to streaming music and watch fitness videos so you do not have to leave your office to take your mind away from work for a little bit. Stand up and play some music on your phone and dance! imitate different yoga poses on Youtube, and for a few minutes, you can remind yourself that you are not living to work, you are merely working to live, so live!
