Some may say that they are just working long, hard hours and don’t have time to go to the gym or cook a healthy homemade meal. Yes, no one can argue that most people are working harder and longer, but we can ask whether people are working smarter and more efficiently?
How much more productive do you think you would be if you took a little time for yourself each day? What if you woke up 30 minutes earlier to go on a run outside or went to bed a little earlier to attend a 6am yoga class? Or maybe it’s as simple as waking up 15 minutes earlier to make a breakfast smoothie or pack a healthy lunch? Perhaps it was as simple as taking 10 minutes during your lunch to get some fresh air and natural sunlight? Do you think you would be more or less productive during the day if you did some of these simple things? Do you think you would you be happier and better able to take on challenges?
Fortunately, we are in total control of our time whether we realize it or not. Yes, we are all working harder and longer, but what do we need to do to work smarter? Taking time for some healthy practices is a great way to live a more purposeful and meaningful life. Health is our competitive advantage. All it takes is a little planning.
Think about when you go on a summer vacation. You plan ahead to make sure you pack sunscreen, a swimsuit, and a few other essentials right? This simple planning allows you to enjoy your vacation to the fullest and “soak” up every moment.
Think about how you want to plan out the week ahead in order to make the most of your time. What days can you commit to moving your body in some way, remembering that it’s the way movement makes you feel that is so powerful. When do you plan to go to the grocery store to stock up on some healthy items for the week? What days will you cook at home?
When it comes to living healthy on the go, remember that with a little simple planning, anything is possible.
