Everyday stressors such as work, family and health can leave you feeling like your constantly on the go. Creating me time everyday is essential; time to sit back, de stress and organize your commitments creates more time for you to make better health and lifestyle decisions.
If you don’t have time to sit down to a healthy meal three times a day, then its essential you make sure that the foods you are eating on the go are nourishing and full of essential nutrients. Foods such as raw nuts, pre chopped veggies & greens, fruit, homemade muesli bars, healthy wraps, pretty much anything you make yourself from scratch is better than any premade packet foods.
Sometimes having large goals to work towards is enough motivation, other times setting mini goals can assist you and be more beneficial to get you there. One things for sure, goal setting is going to push your limits, its amazing how rewarding goal setting can be. Setting goals can be a great way to kick-start your new healthy lifestyle, and there is no better time than 2016!

There are countless ways to move more every day; walk down to the shops, get off a few stops early and walk to work, park further away from the office and walk the rest, offer to walk to the lunch pick up, walk to the gym the opportunities to walk are never ending.
