Staying healthy is the most challenging thing for the most of the office people. Stress, long working hours, endless meetings, fast food and snacks this is what leads for being unhealthy. The good/bad thing about is that you will not notice any healthy problems for quite long time. On the other hand, when it hits, it might be too late, to get on the right track – on the healthy lifestyle.
The thing is that it is not that easy to do. Well, it is quite easy to start, but it is not easy to keep going and being healthy. And the reason is that you already formed the bad habit which is hard to break the pattern of it. This is why most diets, plans “how quickly to loose 20kgs” and other short term fixes is not helping in the long way. You have to start thinking how to become consistent and determined on what you are doing, what you are eating or drinking and definitely not to go only “black” or “white” (which I have to admit, most of the time this is how I go being/trying and staying healthy).
Anyway, few tips that might help you to start with. First, check this quote which I constantly remember by doing right and wrong choices (right mindset is the key):
“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” – Jim Rohn
Second, try not to over eat. The very basic rule is, you have to finish your meal while you are still hungry. Third, try to move more. Myself, I am an active person, I hit the gym at least 4-5 times a week, I cycle to work, I do physical challenges (more about it in the future), but every time when I see that I am going to miss my activity, at least what I do, I try to walk more. For example, while going to work, get one stop earlier out of the tube or bus. Walk to the shop instead of taking a car, or simply start your morning by walking in the park.
The thing is to start somewhere and develop the path on the go. By developing the path new habits will start to evolve.
And remember – “Take care of your body….”
