You’re a savvy businesswoman. You have a successful career, working a full-time job (possibly even running your own business) and doing it all with style and sophistication. You’re way too busy for Pinterest boards and you don’t have time to worry about the latest Starbucks frappuccino flavors. You’ve got places to go, things to do, errands to run, and invoices to send.
No wonder your friends like to joke that you are single-handedly saving the world, in and out of the office, all while wearing three-inch heels. You deserve a standing ovation for the brilliant job you’ve done of juggling so many responsibilities.
Recent research has shown that many women just like you often become so caught up in their fast-paced lives and careers that they struggle to find time for proper nutrition. Half of all women skip breakfast in favor of coffee. 1 in 4 women eat their meals on-the-go while driving to or from work, business meetings, daycares, etc. (Don’t worry; I’m guilty of it, too.)
Improving your nutrition can help you overcome many different ailments from chronic pain to depression, and even addiction. If you’re interested in improving your nutrition and overall health – while still keeping up with your career and your daily responsibilities – you’re in luck. There are a few tips and tricks that you can use to bring more overall wellness into your daily routine.
Think you’re “too busy” to eat healthy? Think again. Meal prepping is a lifesaver for busy, working women around the world. Simply designate one day out of the week when you will prepare healthy meals for the upcoming work week. You can store your ready-to-eat meals in the refrigerator or freezer until it’s time to enjoy them.
Smoothies are another quick, easy and healthy option. The internet is full of delicious recipes. Just pour your smoothie into a to-go cup and you can enjoy a healthy breakfast on the way to work, while also saving the money you’d normally be spending at the drive-thru.
It’s no secret that being a workaholic can lead to relationship issues. According to life coach and couples therapist, Connie Milligan LCSW, a relationship is like a fire. If you don’t tend to the flame, it will burn out.
You don’t have to sacrifice your career or ambitions in order to have a healthy relationship. Repeat after me: “I can have both.”
Rebecca Healy is the founder of Kontrary, which challenges the stereotypical perspectives we women often hear about money and lifestyle. Healy says it is important for couples to “carve out time for each other” – even as both individuals continue to balance their professional careers (or their parental duties). Of course, this advice applies to all types of relationships, romantic or otherwise.
You don’t have to give up your career to enjoy a healthy, happy life. By following the advice listed above, you can find balance and wellness.
