It’s hard to make healthy choices when you’re stressed. If you never seem to have time to take care of yourself, you might need to look at your priorities.
Where does your time go? Are you enjoying life and staying active? Or do you find yourself mostly staring at a screen or running errands?
An activity log is a good way to track what you do throughout your day. Try it for a week to see what happens to all those precious hours. Then, work on scheduling the important stuff, like family meals, exercise and relaxation.
It’s okay to pencil in a “break” for 10 minutes here and there in your day, and don’t forget to schedule time for a massage or yoga. After a while, life should feel less stressful and more balanced.
