This is part of a series I’ve been creating for Azumio. Azumio is an app company dedicated to improve health and wellness by tracking sleep and steps, monitoring your glucose levels and heart rate, and providing exercise libraries and routines.
Whether it’s a holiday season, a huge project at work, or just lots of change, we all have times in our lives when we’re very busy. Busyness comes with a tendency to put everything else on hold, especially our health and fitness goals. Even though it may feel easier to just focus on the deadlines at hand, putting your health and fitness priorities on hold can lead to regret and some difficulty when it comes to prioritizing those goals back into your life when the busy time is over.
Especially in busy times, you want to be running at your best. When you’re not nourishing yourself with healthy food or moving, you’ll start to feel tired and less energized, much like you did before you made your health and fitness changes.
Plan it Out
In order to set time aside for yourself, you have to make it. This is where planning is crucial. At the beginning or end of each week, write out all of the major things you have going on (meetings, appointments, events, plans with family or friends, major work or personal deadlines). This will then help you see how many meals you need to find recipes for, when you may be eating out, and when you’ll need to pack more snacks due to longer days away from home or your next meal.
