How to Stay Healthy When Life Gets Hectic

Posted in The Baker Beacon

When life gets busy and we’re in a time crunch, healthy living often takes a backseat to the rest of life’s priorities. Late nights at work or a busy family schedule keep us looking for “fast” food and skipping our workout routines.

Here’s 4 things you can do to stay healthy while on the go:

  1. Buy and Use a BPA-Free Water Bottle. Water helps flush toxins and transport nutrients, so staying hydrated is key. Kepp your water bottle with you and refill it frequently.
  2. Eat Breakfast! As we rush through our morning routine, it’s easy to forget the most important part: Breakfast! A healthy breakfast may increase energy and the ability to concentrate, lower cholesterol and help with weight control. Consider healthy options like bananas, veggie omelets, hard-boiled eggs, raisins, or whole-wheat toast.
  3. Choose HEALTHY Snacks. Healthy snacks are a good way to get extra fruits, veggies, and whole grains into your diet. These healthy options can go a long way toward weight loss.
  4. Get Moving! Exercise is a necessary part of a healthy lifestyle. With a busy schedule, it’s easy to miss a few workouts here and there. Consider these options to incorporate more movement into your day: walk or bike to work, do a quick 10 minute exercise at your desk, walk in place while watching television, or download a few quick and short workout videos from YouTube.
