We find ourselves at the beginning of a new year. And many people have goals of becoming healthier, getting in shape, and cleaning up their diet. That said, Making healthy choices during the workweek can be tricky, but it is possible with a few simple steps.
First, plan and create a meal plan for the week. A plan will help you ensure that you eat
balanced, healthy meals throughout the week. Your plan can mean planning out your menus every weeknight or subscribing to a service like Hello Fresh to ensure you have all the necessary ingredients.
Secondly, plan and pack your lunches and snacks for the week. Having your lunch packed will give you more control over what you're eating and allow you to make healthier choices. It also means that you can easily say no when someone at the office asks if you'd like to go out to lunch or order fast food.
And know that none of us are perfect all the time. If you go out for lunch, opt for healthier options like salads or bowls with lots of veggies and lean meat.
Remember to take breaks throughout the day to get up and move around. Taking breaks (even if it's just a walk to the water fountain or bathroom) will help to keep your energy levels up and your body active.
With a bit of planning and effort, you can make healthier choices during the workweek and get to your 2023 health goals with no problem.
