How to Stay Healthy When You’re Too Busy

We all have too much going on in our lives. There’s work, school, family, relationships, and everything else that takes your time and energy. Every minute passes by so fast that you can sometimes forget to stop and eat. But nowadays, you can easily fill yourself up and grab fast food through a drive-thru or delivery.

One of the top reasons why people heavily consume fast food is lack of time. But as we all know, fast food isn’t the best for your body.

So how can you keep yourself eating healthily without spending hours in the kitchen? Here are some simple health strategies you can do while on the go.

Get yourself ready

Figure out how your week is going to look like. Are you going to have a busy day ahead? The best way you can do to be successful in your plan in staying healthy is to be always prepared and organized.

Schedule your meals to avoid spending time thinking what to eat before every meal. You can schedule your exercise times too. Creating a schedule helps you fully commit to your plans.

Have healthy options

If you’re lucky to get away from all the busyness, use this chance to spend more time preparing healthy meals. You can easily whip up snack combos like hummus and vegetable sticks, raw almonds and a piece of organic fruit, and almond butter and whole grain or rice crackers.

Here’s a tip when preparing vegetables: What you can do on lazy weekends is to get a ton of vegetables, chop them up, and put them in the fridge. That way, you can easily grab what you want. Also, take note to go for seasonal fruits as they’re more affordable and fresh. Make sure that you don’t stick to fruits with high levels of sugar. There are low-sugar fruits like kiwi, apricots, and cranberries that you’ll love too.

Place healthy snacks in the car

You might be the type who’s always looking for something to eat while driving, so better have a stock of healthy snacks in your car.

You can prepare a trail mix just by throwing in raw nuts, a few dried fruits like raisins, shredded coconut, and cacao nibs in a ziplock bag. It’s best to consume raw nuts rather than roasted so you can wholly get its nutrients beneficial to your body.

Stay hydrated

You may forget about hydrating yourself when you’re always in a hurry. Have a couple of stainless steel water bottles that you can fill up with fresh filtered water right before you go out. This tip doesn’t only let you have a bottle ready to quench your thirst wherever you go, it also helps you keep track of the amount of water you have every day.

You can add life to your water by adding some slices of citrus fruits like oranges and lemons.

The Health Benefits of Coconut

Coconut is probably one of the most versatile fruits. Over the centuries, people have discovered its various uses and have rightfully called its tree the “Tree of Life.” This is probably because, aside from being a refreshing snack, coconut is also packed with tons of health-giving nutrients.

As so, here are a few additional health benefits of coconut.

Coconut is one of the best antioxidants

Virgin coconut oil (VCO) has been gaining a reputation as a miracle oil these days. This may be because coconut oil contains an antioxidant called phenol that helps reduce and repair cell damage. These phenols give damaged cells the necessary elements to repair themselves.

Moreover, studies have shown that virgin coconut oil and products that contain VCO can moisturize dry hair and skin. It also provides protection from everyday stress. By including VCO in your daily beauty regime, you are not only protecting your skin but also giving it a necessary break from chemical-based products that sometimes cause more damage than good.

Coconut provides excellent hydration

Coconut water is refreshing, but that is thanks to not only its silky smoothness. Coconut water is a great source of electrolytes, which help with the proper bodily hydration. Moreover, it helps maintain proper fluid balance in the body.

Studies have shown that coconut water helped hydrate better when compared to water and just as much as sports beverages with high-electrolyte counts. Being properly hydrated also helps our muscles and nerves function better.

Coconut improves heart health

It is true that virgin coconut oil is high in fat – the good fat. VCO has high levels of HDL cholesterol, which is helpful in reducing LDL cholesterol, or the bad fat that causes heart problems and heart disease.

In addition, coconut water helps reduce blood pressure. It is high in potassium, which has been shown to help in blood pressure maintenance. Coconut water has also been shown to have anti-thrombotic activity, meaning that it can prevent blood clot formation.

Coconut can boost brain function

As mentioned, VCO is an excellent source of fats. In particular, coconut oil contains a special kind of fat to help it function: medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs are a source of energy for our brains and without it, we are more prone to depression or dementia. Notably, MCTs can mostly be found in human breast-milk and coconut oil.

Studies have also shown how coconut oil has been successful in treating an early-onset of Alzheimer’s. It has also been noted as a probable solution for other neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, stroke, and traumatic brain injury. It can even delay the aging of the brain.

Coconut can help strengthen your bones

Surprisingly, coconut can also help strengthen your bones. Studies have shown that it can improve the absorption and retainment of nutrients in the bone, thus aiding in the maintenance of a healthy bone structure while preventing bone loss. Consequently, it can be used to prevent osteoporosis. According to one study, administering coconut oil can help increase the bone volume and bone strength.

The health benefits of coconut

Coconut is a wonderful addition to any dish, and its versatility knows no bounds. It only follows that it has many wonderful benefits to the body through its many nutrients and minerals.

The Power of Thankfulness

With all the many things happening in our life, it can be difficult to find something to be thankful for every day. But the truth is, these times are exactly the times when having a grateful heart matters the most.

Note however that having a grateful heart isn’t simply about saying “thank you” all the time.

Being in thankfulness is a habit. It is something you develop by being conscious about your experiences. It is about being present and open to everything that may come your way. It is about looking at everything as a gift and not a challenge, something to be truly thankful for, no matter what its effects may be in your life.

What’s even better is that living with a grateful heart not only brings joy to the soul but also has a lot of wonderful benefits to your life and the people around you.

First, gratitude helps us overcome hardships.

By being thankful for what you have, it helps give you perspective on what is happening right in front of you right now. Instead of seeing your problems as difficulties, you can see them as stepping stones to something greater that is in store for you.

Second, gratitude is good for your health.

There have been numerous studies made on the connection between a thankful heart and a healthy one. For example, a 2015 study showed that among people with heart damage, those with higher gratitude scores had betters moods, better sleep quality, and less heart inflammation.

Also, living with gratitude can contribute to having a more positive outlook, which helps with your overall mental health. It has also been seen that people who were more gracious were more likely to adopt healthy behaviors and seek help when it comes to health-related concerns.

Lastly, gratitude strengthens your relationships.

As humans, we all thrive on our relationships. The key to creating strong ties lies in communication, particularly positive ones. Being in gratitude helps with just that. By being truly thankful for others through your words and actions, you help give them positive reinforcement and strengthen your bonds.

As wonderful being thankful can be, it is something that you actually have to practice until it becomes a habit. The first step to that is developing a gratitude mindset, which I talk about more in this blog post.

Once you have accepted this gratitude mindset in your life, you too will soon reap its many benefits for you and the people around you.

Your turn! What are you thankful for today? Let me know in the comments below!

Sustain Your Momentum For Success

Sometimes, you set a goal for yourself and you achieve it through hard work and determination. It is a great feeling to have – whether it’s for those first few pounds, changing up a diet, or successfully completing an exercise regimen. However, it is at this point that you need to be wary about sustaining your momentum for success.

This is because sometimes, you may feel so comfortable with your current situation that you forget what it felt like to be on your journey. It feels rewarding at first, but know that there is still something else greater for you out there. There are still new goals to achieve and new paths for you to take.

As so, what can you do to keep yourself on track on your journey for a brand new you? Here are a few things you should keep in mind.

Remind yourself of your why

Remember when you first realized what you wanted to become? Or when you first had that enlightenment on what you wanted to get out of your life? Remember all the fears that you had? You took the chance regardless of the odds, regardless of the risks. This was because you wanted it. Because you needed it to move forward, you took the first step.

So, what is stopping you now from doing it all over again? Nothing at all. All you need to do is remind yourself of your reasons for going on your journey in the first place and all the wonderful benefits you’ll gain if you kept yourself focused on your journey. Go back to your why.

Make a road map

Make a clear and definite road map of where you want to go and what roads you should take to reach your goal. Your view of the end result might be clear to you, but the path you will take may be clouded from your experiences. You might also feel overconfident with your initial accomplishments that you might miss little warning signals. These thoughts, as well you know, will only ensure your failure. So, don’t walk on this new path blindfolded.

Remember to always think positively

Positive thinking is so important. This is especially so when you encounter challenges and failure. For some, failure is always be at the back of their mind, taunting them and trying to make them doubt in their capabilities. As so, instead of thinking about the negative side of failure, you should look at it with a new perspective: you have failed before and you survived it. If you survived previous failures, you will survive this other one. So, always think positively and you will surely always win in whatever endeavor you take.

Remember your support network

Failure isn’t always easy to swallow. It usually doesn’t like to be ignored. So, when you feel like you can’t sustain your momentum or when you can’t seem to shake that doubtful voice in your head, remember that you have family and friends who are always there for you to cheer you on and ensure that you don’t give up unnecessarily. They are your back up battery when you are starting to feel too exhausted to continue. So, remember to turn to them whenever you need to.

Sustain your momentum for success

Don’t hold yourself back from success. You have been there before. You can do it again. Just remember the lessons you learned from the past and continue to open your mind to new knowledge, and never let failure deter you from moving forward.
