Long post alert but I promise it's worth the read🌀Tonight I am having a calm night trying to recoup a bit. Fitting in my workouts, meal prep, class, work, and everything else that goes into being a college student keeps ya pretty busy (as I'm sure most of you know) so taking anytime I can to reset before the start of another week.
Living and leading a healthy life can be really hard in these busy times. It can feel like you have to choose between working out, getting your hw done, or going out on the weekend. But... I want this to be a reminder that it is all about BALANCE. Although my health complications are as frustrating as they are, they have motivated me to always (well almost always😉) fit in my workouts and take the time to meal prep and pack my meals. But as we get busy we do have to choose a balance between social, school, work, your health and that's key. Go to bed 20 min earlier so you can get up and do a quick yoga sesh before class. Cut up some veggies on sundays so when you get home from class and your REALLY craving those chicken nuggets, pizza, etc. you already have your healthy option chosen for you and ready to go. Find workout buddies. Don't always overschedule yourself. Try out new foods and see what clean choices you actually enjoy (healthy food can be super tasty!). Get an agenda and plan out when your going to do your hw assignments. Use your study breaks for some quick stretching/walk. Take your waterbottle with you everywhere. It's always easier said then done but do your best to make yourself your priority and do something this week that will make you healthier and happier. And remember balance is the key.
