When you are super busy, eating healthier can become a low priority. It is much easier to order in or make a quick dinner or lunch without having to meal prep. However, eating properly can increase your productivity since you may feel more energized throughout the day.
So, here are 4 ways you can eat healthier even if you are super busy.
First thing in the morning, make sure you prioritize having a healthy breakfast. These meals can take minimal time, even a simple oatmeal recipe or fruit bowl are fine. Having breakfast can set the mood for the rest of your day. Remember, food is fuel, so if your body is not happy, you won’t be happy.
Get yourself a decent sized water bottle and make sure you have water throughout the day. Not only can water help you stay full, but staying hydrated is key to staying healthy. It can also help you to feel energized so you are productive throughout your busy day.
Eat At The Same Time
When you are super busy, you may find yourself in the same routine everyday. If you have a set routine, it can be easy to incorporate your meals into it at the same time everyday. This way, your body will know exactly when it is hungry and you will be able to eat accordingly. It can also make it easier to meal prep for your days so you know when you will need meals and when you will not.
Walk and Talk
When you are taking calls or eating, try to walk while you do it. This could mean eating on your walk to work or going for a walk during your lunch break. This way, you are still getting some physical exercise throughout the day, so your body stays active.
