We all love to be served: we have someone washing our cars, we have someone cooking for us, we have someone doing our garden, cleaning our house and cleaning our windows. That is wonderful!
But about taking care of your health you really have to do it yourself!
A medical provider is a guide that directs you on the right path so you don’t get lost.
It is clear that working more than 40 hours a week is a challenge and it might be difficult to do other personal things. We are all very tired at the end of the day.
We all want to use services that are available so we can relax at the end of the day but I believe we can do better to improve our health.
Can you make the time to cook? Do you have someone that can help you with the cooking chores?
It should not take you more than 15 min during the week to prepare your dinner. Some leftovers can also be used for your lunch. On weekends, make larger meals that you can divide into 2-3 lunches or dinners.
It is recommended to exercise 3-4 times a week: walking, running, yoga, Pilates, Aikido and other activities that can help to improve your physical health.
Making your own meals will help you to know exactly what you are eating everyday and it will help you to control your calories and portions. Another benefit: you will actually save a lot of money.
