A Workaholic’s Guide to Healthy Living

If you are a career-minded person or are launching your own business, there’s never enough time in the day to do all the things you want, and in our desire to give it everything, our health can easily suffer. Not only is it hard to find the time to exercise, your diet can also suffer if you are eating take-outs all the time, and with that in mind, here are a few tips to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle while working all the hours God sends.

  • Online Organic Food Suppliers – Wherever you happen to live in Australia, you can simply search online and find organic food delivery in Melbourne, or any other city, for that matter. The supplier would have associations with local organic farms and with super-fresh deliveries, you can enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables each and every day of the year. Thanks to the Internet, you can shop for healthy food that is delivered to your door, and with social distancing measures in place, online shopping eliminates human contact.
  • Home Workouts – It isn’t necessary to go to the gym when you want to workout, all you need are a couple of suitably weighted dumb bells and a bicycle or jogging machine. There are lots of free online resources to help you plan your exercise routine, which should last from 15-30 minutes, and twice a day is ideal. Once before breakfast and again just prior to your evening meal is all it takes to work out all the major muscle groups, and even the busiest person could squeeze that into their daily schedule. Here is a very informative article on how to take care of your health in a post Covid-19 world, which makes for an interesting read.
  • Limit your Working Sessions – If you work online, for example, you should take a break every 30-45 minutes, which gives your eyesight a chance to focus on things far away, plus you should walk around for a while to get the blood circulating. You can actually give yourself a mini-workout while still sitting at your desk, and there are some online guides to exercising in an office environment that demonstrate easy to do exercises you can do in your office.
  • Set Aside some ‘Me Time’ – It doesn’t matter how busy you are, if you want to remain well-balanced, you need to have some ‘me time’, which should be spent doing what you love. We all have at least one hobby we like to engage in when we have the time, and rather than simply saying you don’t have the time, you can actually make time for something as important as this. Here is an Australian government resource about mental health, which offers some valuable advice on metal well-being.

Just because you are committed to your work, that doesn’t mean that your physical and mental health should suffer, and by following the above advice, you should remain healthy while being super-productive.
