Trying to live out a busy adult schedule as well as stay sociable, look after your home, and be healthy is a huge challenge and one that we all struggle with now and again.
If you have a busy schedule and often struggle to make time for healthy eating or habits; we have some helpful tips for you today. It is so important that we all make time for a healthier lifestyle, and these simple ideas can be brought into your daily life even at work and will keep you healthy and strong throughout your life.
Make overnight oats for breakfast
If you never seem to have time for a healthy breakfast before you start work- this is the ideal tip for you. Overnight oats are a type of porridge that can be made the night before and left in the fridge overnight before you leave for work in the morning. To make healthy overnight oats you’ll need half a cup of oats, a cup of milk or vegan milk, a tablespoon of honey, and some frozen or fresh fruit. This will build you a nutritious and filling breakfast that will easily set you up for the morning.
Turn down the volume
One thing we often don’t consider when living our daily lives is our hearing. Hearing loss is a common thing and if you want to avoid long term damage it is important to turn down the volume on your tv and radio every day. If you do end up with some hearing issues, you can try hearing aid programming to help you live your day to day life without any issues.
Meal prep your lunches
One of the hardest things to maintain when we are trying to be healthy is a good diet. Grabbing a quick sandwich or even a burger during working hours sometimes seems easier than getting a healthier option – and this is where the pounds will start to creep up on you and cause you to gain weight. Make sure to meal prep your lunches for the week ahead such as salad sandwiches, wraps, or even pasta packed with roasted vegetables. There are lots of healthy options to choose from that will be great for you and your busy schedule.
Take 5 minutes for your skin
Skincare is another one of those things that sometimes gets forgotten about or taken for granted but you shouldn’t if you want to stay healthy. Consider taking 5 minutes out of your day cleanse, apply toner, and moisturise your skin. These 3 simple steps will change your skin for the better and it doesn’t take long to do.
Take the stairs
To build up the muscles in your legs as well as help you shed some pounds during your working week – take the stairs instead of the lift. This simple trick is something that will only cost you an extra minute or two and the cardio will do wonders for every part of your body including your heart.
