Healthy Tips for Busy People

Being overstressed and under-rested and thinking that there are a few simple steps that can be followed to stay healthy brings to mind the following thought:
It is impossible for us to break the law. We can only break ourselves against the law. - Cecile B. DeMille

Over time, a healthy diet, high-quality supplements, and a smorgasbord of natural therapies cannot undo damage that is created by chronic stress and lack of rest.

During such times when you simply don't have the luxury of getting an adequate rest, you might consider following one or more of the tips below:

Do not Skip Breakfast
Skip breakfast and you will gradually weaken your stomach and your digestive function as a whole. No matter how little you eat in the morning. You should eat something.
Eating a healthy breakfast is vital for your mind as well as your body. It is the fuel that your body and mind require after fasting for over twelve hours. A smart meal would include the perfect balance of proteins, good fats and carbohydrate.
Having porridge with fruit, nuts, honey and seeds with a half-full glass of orange juice always comes on top. If time is a limited factor, you should consider having smoothies before leaving your house.

Drink Plenty Of Water
Drinking water is very important. It can help you recover from a cold more quickly (though it doesn't "cure" it), replenish lost fluids after exercise, and assist in weight loss (many people think they are hungry when they are actually thirsty, so make sure to take a drink before diving for the candy machine). Keep a four-cup bottle or thermos near the computer and replenish daily. Don't overdo though - excess water can dilute important minerals and vitamins in your blood stream.

Have a Short Walk
If a busy schedule isn't allowing you regular time to exercise, aim to walk part of your way to school, work, or home. If you take a bus or subway, get off one or two stops before the stop closest to your destination and walk the rest of the way. Just be sure to wear comfortable shoes to provide all of your major weight-bearing joints optimal support.
If you have to take an elevator or escalator at work or at home, consider walking up a few flights of stairs instead.

Forget About Work: Learn to Balance your Time
Once you get home, you need to forget about work; learning to break the links with work it is difficult but a technique that will work wonders on you and the productivity of your work as well; by learning how to relax you will sleep better and as a consequence. You will be more productive at work; it is a win-win situation.

Build Fast Stress Relief Into Your Lifestyle
If you don't have time for a new stress management regimen, these stress relievers provide maximum impact for minimal time expenditure. Things like taking your vitamins and playing music in the background, for example, fit nicely into even the busiest lifestyle, but provide surprisingly significant stress relief benefits.

Get More Sleep In Your Life
When your schedule's busy, often sleep is the first thing to be cut back, either intentionally or by default. This is unfortunate because it can leave you feeling lethargic and lead to errors that take more time out of your day to correct. Learn why it's important to safeguard your sleep, and how to actually get the sleep you need.

These tips are best incorporated into a lifestyle that allows for an optimal physical and emotional rest. Your body is always at work to keep itself well; the key is to give it the rest and resources it needs to keep itselfwell over the long haul.
