Getting fit on the inside and out has to begin with learning how to manage our TIME effectively. To manage stress, our health and focus on our purpose in life means we have to be a good steward of our time. Before we can learn how to effectively eat healthy and exercise routinely, we have to know how to manage and find time to actually do it.
But let’s be honest… trying to plan healthy meals and snacks can sometimes be aggravating. Things get so busy; it does not seem possible to have any control over what you will eat for your next meal.
Right when we think we have our healthy eating habits together, schedule and life changes. All of those outside factors may leave feelings of powerless with no control over the next meal.
First and most important. It must become a priority. Getting adequate amounts of vitamins and nutrients for me and my family is very important. I know I will eat healthier and get to spend better time with family when meals and snacks are prepared at home. However, eating healthy does not just happen and it is hard to do with a crazy schedule. As with anything in life worth having, planning and preparation is the key.
Here is one trick to get organized and find time to eat healthy:
Plan your upcoming meals and snacks on a day with the least amount of stress or responsibilities. Sounds simple, but we can’t wait to figure out what we are going to eat during a busy day with a long “to do” list and who knows what other things could pop up.
Once you pick your day, begin putting together your strategies for your meals to be the most time efficient, yet healthy. Follow me on Pinterest and Facebook to get more ideas and recipes.
Forget about running around trying to figure out to eat. GET ORGANIZED FIRST! Choose your day with minimal stress to actually plan. The more you do it, the easier it will become. Let’s be good stewards with our time and get fit inside and out.
