There is no doubt that the current world is fast paced and as a result it’s almost impossible to find time to exercise. The good side is that there are a number of things that you can do to ensure that you remain healthy despite your busy schedule. Here are some of the things that you can do:
Close your eyes
If your schedule allows you to pause for a few minutes, you should spend those minutes in complete silence with your eyes closed. Research studies have shown that closing your eyes aids in enhancing the quality of rest that your body experiences and as a result you feel energized and ready to go on with your activities.
Take plenty of field greens
Field greens supply your body with plenty of vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll and phytochemicals, all of which work together in ensuring that the negative effects of being under-rested and overworked are offset.
Some of the great field greens that you should take include: cabbages, spinach, and any other foods that might be in your area. To find the best greens, you should regularly pay a visit to your local grocery.
Always go for mustard over mayonnaise
Commercial mayonnaise varieties contain soybean, canola oil, and other vegetable oils that contribute to an imbalance of fatty acids in the body tissues. The vegetable oils also contain large amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids that bring about direct tissue injury.
Mustard on the other hand contains mustard seeds, turmeric, salt, and vinegar. The amount of the ingredients in mustard are usually very low thus they can’t cause any problems in the body.
If you can’t get mustard, you should go for avocado slices
Kick start your day with a green smoothie
Smoothies provide the body with plenty of antioxidants, fiber, and carbohydrates. The good side with them is that you can carry them to work or anywhere you are going.
To prepare the smoothies you need green vegetables, fresh fruits, and a strong blender. To reap the full benefits, you should ensure that you use fresh products. You should also ensure that you use the right amounts of each of the products.
Make it your habit to take healthy soups
There are a number of very healthy soups that provide the body with great nutrients. Some of the soups that you can prepare include: pea soup, kale and chickpea soup, roasted cauliflower and potato soup, and squash and apple soup.
You can ask a friend to show you how to prepare the soups or you can go online and take a look at the various recipes.
