A day in the life of the average worker….. (insert your life here)
Would you agree that most of us live a pretty unhealthy life? A breakfast of doughnuts and coffee leads to jitters and mid-morning hunger or headaches. Break-time means more coffee and a candy bar. Lunch is all about convenience! More sugar, salt, and fat….plus a calorie count higher than consumed by most athletes…is the average fast-food lunch. And forget about drinking enough water!
Do you feel exhausted by mid-afternoon? So, I’m sure most of you rush from work to the nearest gym for a good work-out …. or do you visit the gym before work….NOT! Instead, we stay up too late watching TV and eating more unhealthy food, go to bed with indigestion and sleep poorly, and wake up feeling horrible. We leave for work too late, drive too fast while eating that doughnut or breakfast drive-thru food, all the while risking our lives and the lives of others sharing the road. Seriously, is this a good plan?
I’m not trying to make everyone feel guilty about their lifestyle, but hoping that my comments will make you stop and think about what you can do to lead a healthier lifestyle! Otherwise the future looks pretty grim….diabetes, obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.
Here are some healthy breakfast ideas from the Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/food-and-nutrition/NU00197
How much water should you drink? Again, from the Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/water/NU00283
And how about cooking at home for a change. When you cook, you can be in control of fat, salt, and sugar content.
