Life Is A Balancing Act (focusing on time management and how to manage a healthy lifestyle)
When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle it’s easier said than one. One reason why people tend to give up on their lifestyle change is not just because it’s hard, but because they’re doing too much a one. You can’t expect to wake up 6 am every morning to workout, eat clean, meal prep, and… on top of your regular day to day schedule and expect it to stick. You need to take things slow and ease into them. Start working out for 30 minutes a day and replace one bad meal with a good one. Once you get used to this change, make it a little more intense by working out for an hour a day and replacing two bad meals for two good ones. As time goes on you will see that things will get easier and that you’re able to fit more things in your schedule at a time.
More than a diet is all about learning how to make healthy routines a constant in our hectic everyday lives. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be a long and grueling process. It comes with a few trials and errors, relapses, cravings etc. In order to combat that you should create small changes at a time to form habits.
Aside from forming small habits, another way of balancing a healthy life with a busy one is making your workouts, and meals more efficient. Try HIIT training instead of a regular hour-long workout. A full HIIT workout could be as short as 15 minutes long. Depending on what type of HIIT circuits you do, you could get achieve a full body workout in 30 minutes or less! Another way is to make your meals more efficient, meal prepping is a great way to do that. Prepping your meals for the week during the weekend could help you from buying junk food on a busy day.
With most things in life, too much of one thing isn’t always a good thing. Moderation and patience is the key to success with anything in existence because life indeed is a balancing act.
