Crawl, Walk, Run than gear for glory
This is one common modern-day fad we have been fed repeatedly by food marketing companies.

You don’t have to cook a fancy or complicated masterpiece, just good food from fresh ingredients-Julia Child.
If you feel that healthy food is tasteless its time for you to spend some time in kitchen. Preparing healthy food which is filled with your preferred choices gives you an understanding what all the meals must look like. It even gives you a chance to make healthy snacking options as mid-day snacking is the biggest sin while coming to a healthy routine. As a person if you haven’t touched the pan since college Maggi days, don’t jump into a Tarla Dalal recipe tomorrow. Instead start with basic understanding of food, meal planning and then move on to further steps like cooking.
Fitness Center is not a necessity
There are days when we can’t even make time to eat, weekends where we don’t even know when the sun came out; don’t SWEAT. The daily fitness center routine is advised as it gets you into a habit or rather a routine, however when the plan of visit just can work switch over to plan B and C. Take a walk to the grocery store, or a longer walk with your dog, or go out with kids to the park; the end motive is just to get the body moving come what may. You can also access thousands of YouTube channels and probably push in a workout along with your bio-break.
Finally, as technology continues to reduce time and distance, we continue to struggle demarcating boundaries between professional and personal life. We should get creative and prioritize exercise and a wellness routine to reduce stress levels and improve work-life balance, with balance being the pivot point. Remember that balancing work, life, and wellness is about finding a plan that supports your lifestyle and shouldn’t leave you feeling guilty or ashamed for missing the gym that day.
