Morning Maneuvers: The Struggle Is Real
Should we repeat ourselves by saying starting your day with a healthy routine is essential? Well, it is, but if we are being more real, then there are those days when you will feel as if you have been hit by a meteorite exhaustion when you wake up. But there is a secret weapon to beat this: the power of your tiny victories. You don’t have to start your day with an Olympic-level morning routine, you should start small, in fact. Perhaps a glass of water? A quick stretch like your sleepy cat? These are some of the tiniest wins, sure. But they will still make you feel like “I’ve got this!” and that’s what matters first thing in the morning.
Snack Attacks and On-the-Go Eats
It’s a nightmare, isn’t it when you are sprinting through life and then you realize hunger pouncing on you like a ninja? Now there is a bag of chips lying there that might feel like the easiest option to beat that hunger. But there are some snack alternatives that you can try and be a snack superhero. Grab a handful of nuts, a piece of fruit, or a granola bar, if you have any. These are all lifesavers in contrast to that bag of chips. Also, please do not forget the hydration game. Water bottles are the game saver. Staying hydrated is like giving your body a high five when life is giving it a wedgie.
Exercise? Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That… Or Do We?
Exercise is that elusive unicorn. Some people used to think that working out was like an epic journey to Mount Everest back and forth. But you don’t have to own a gym membership to join the Overachievers club, anyway. You can exercise from home. You can dance whenever you feel like and you don’t care about anyone’s watching, because they are not. Every moment that you waste for that shooting star to fall, you can use that time to work out. For example, while you are watching your coffee brew, you can dance to that because you have time that you are wasting. You can take the stairs even when there is an elevator. And you can even do some 10-minute power walk while you are calling your ex because you know you are a fitness Ninja.
Sleep: The Holy Grail of Adulting
And then there is sleep that is the unicorn’s twin sibling. When life goes bonkers, sleep becomes an endangered being on our to-do list. But guess what? Sleep was never a luxury— it is a necessity indeed. Maybe you have also learned it the hard way after a night of Netflix binging. And the next morning you are transformed into a grumpy gremlin. But there has been a war declared on sleep stealers. That means no more screens an hour before bed.
The Calming Chaos Ritual
Here is our grand finale of rocking healthy habits repertoire: it is the calming chaos ritual. Life will unleash its hurricane-force winds, as always. But you can try to find solace in carving out pockets of calm. Don’t worry, the thing is simple really, like sipping an herbal cup of tea while looking out the window or while blasting your favorite 80s song. These small moments of pause are as important in your life as a life vest in a turbulent sea. Please don’t forget that life will throw lemons at you but you have all the equipment to turn them into lemonade, if you like it!
In Conclusion: You’ve Got This, Warriors!
Again we are going to say it, nailing the healthy habits for busy people when life is tap dancing on your schedule is difficult. But you can start from as small as you think. You can celebrate the triumph of putting on matching socks in the morning. You can celebrate how you ditched that bag of chips with some healthy alternatives. In the realm of chaos, every tiny step that makes you feel special counts. When life goes bonkers, you have to remember that you are the captain of your ship. You can steer your ship through the stormy waters with a handful of nuts and a determined grin.
