Women are capable of multitasking. Ask a woman to do a multitude of things and she will go out of her way to accomplish all those. But because of so many pressing things weighing down a woman’s life, these things can compromise her health.
Women’s health usually takes a back seat. But this is the best time to figure out how you can stay right on top of things while still maintaining a healthy body and a sound mind. To start that off, you need to find out what is causing your diet to sink.
What are the causes of a bad diet? What is making you reach that second slice of pizza? Why are you not eating as well as you used to?
One of the three reasons is stress. In this day and age, I don’t know anyone who is not under a lot of stress. It is pretty much our way of life. But the problem with stress is that it can lure you into eating more unhealthy foods. Because you need to cope up with stress, you will require more energy to do the things you need to accomplish during the day. What better way to get more energy than to eat more? Food is fuel, right? But while food can definitely make us go a long way, eating the wrong kinds of food can add up to the fat build up in our body. Take this time to find out which foods are healthier options. Instead of salty or fatty snacks, try apples, nuts, prunes, yogurt or figs.
Another reason is your friends and your family. It is difficult to live a healthier lifestyle if your friends and the rest of your family are not included in your plans. They can dangle the food temptations right before your eyes. They might ask you to eat out or have a night out. When you are outside eating or drinking, calorie count will be at the last of your priority. The best way to stay ahead of women’s health is to convince them to join you in your fitness scheme – or at least make them understand what you are trying to do.
Lack of sleep can also cause major changes in your diet. Because you lack sleep, you turn to food to give your body more energy.
