Planning and preparing your meals for the workday will help you skip vending-machine temptation and follow a healthier diet.
If you like to snack between meals, make sure to prepack snacks such as veggie sticks, fruit, or nuts and keep them in your fridge or purse so they’re ready to grab when hunger strikes.
Take a multivitamin every day to make sure you’re getting the proper amount of nutrients as a complement to a healthy, balanced diet. Put the bottle on your kitchen counter, on your nightstand, or in your purse – somewhere where you’ll remember to pop one in daily.
Walking is a simple and effective way to get in shape when you’re too busy to fit in a workout. Swap out the escalator or elevator for the stairs on your morning commute, take a 20-minute break at work during lunch to walk outside or around the office, and try to get most of your errands done by walking if you can. Adding more walking to your daily routine will help you step your way to a healthier heart, mind, and body.
Take a bowl or a jar and fill it with slips of paper that have self-care suggestions on them. These ideas should be able to be completed in 20 minutes or less and should bring you joy, peace, and relaxation. When you feel anxious, stressed, and in desperate need of TLC, pull out a piece of paper and do whatever it says.
Set a timer and take 10 to 20 minutes out of your day to sit down with a piece of paper and a pen and write yourself a letter. Write anything that comes to your mind, it can be cathartic to put your problems and anxieties on paper to help solve them. While you can choose to write about anything, make sure to include the things that you love and admire about yourself to help you remember how great you are.
