Healthy Lifestyle Habits You Can Follow Even on a Busy Schedule
When we’re busy with work, it’s very easy to forgo healthy lifestyle choices. Fortunately though, there are still a lot of things we can do to stay healthy even if we’re drowning in work. You just really have to pay attention to your own habits.
Drinks lots of water
One of the easiest healthy habits you can do is to keep yourself well-hydrated every day. Even if you’re busy, it’s still very easy to have a glass of water while working. You can also have a water bottle on your desk so that you can remind yourself to drink up from time to time. Some even do use alarms on their phones just to remind themselves to drink water.
In Singapore, more and more people are actually skipping breakfast. But, no matter how busy you are, you should always find time for breakfast. Having breakfast should be on your list of priorities! Skipping breakfast will cause you to take less healthy food options throughout the day. If you’re busy with work, you’re usually stressed out. And eating unhealthy food will only make things worse.
When you’re busy, the go-to drink you’ll usually have is coffee. Coffee helps you stay alert and get more things done. But, of course, there is still a debate about how good or bad it can be for our health. For one, it does have a lot of benefits. But there are also risks when having too much. So the simple solution, if you think about it, is just to not have too much! The pros will far outweigh the cons as long as you drink in moderation.
Be mindful of what you eat
When we’re focused on work, we usually don’t pay attention to what we’re putting in our stomachs. If the food is quick and convenient, I’m going to have it since I still have a lot of work to do. Don’t think like this. Eating mindfully is also one of the best healthy habits you can have. Eating slowly also comes with that. We usually gobble down our food without even taking a break just to save time. That’s a big no-no.
Sneak in a little exercise each day
You can do some push-ups and sit-ups as you wake up, for example. Or maybe you can take the stairs up to your office if you still have time. You can also take breaks and just walk around your office. You’re giving your mind some time to rest and you’re also moving your body a bit. If you can’t find time to do actual exercise, this might be the best thing you can do.
