“Life’s a trip,” and that statement is 1) underrated and 2) could not be further from the truth.

We all know how important it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but sometimes life can get in the way and make it really hard to prioritize fitness.

Maintaining a healthy balance between your work and personal life can be difficult. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can be easy to forget about taking care of your body.

Don’t let hustle culture make you believe you must complete everything simultaneously.

Stress is the enemy here, whether it’s a busy work schedule, family obligations, or unexpected events.

Stress can easily take over and leave little time or energy for exercise and healthy eating habits.

It’s important to remember that fitness doesn’t have to be a source of stress (Read that line again.)

Stressing about fitness can be counterproductive and lead to adverse physical and mental health effects that can do more harm than good.

Instead of worrying about fitting in a full workout or following a strict diet plan, try incorporating small, manageable, and sustainable changes into your daily routine.

I get it, though. For many, we don’t want to make excuses on why we couldn’t eat better or make a session happen when we have 24 hours and blah blah, but the reality is that sometimes pushing yourself into a wall hurts your unrealized potential.

I’m not dismissing exercising, either. But there should be a good balance.

Prioritizing your health and making it a part of your daily routine is crucial. However, finding the right time to work out can be a game-changer for your physical and mental health. Caring for your body gives you more energy and focus to tackle daily life and tasks.

Plus, our bodies are designed to know more than the mind: When your body tells you it’s time to stop, you will know immediately.

So going back to healthy changes can include:

  • Taking a 10–15-minute walk during your lunch break.
