I just received the latest issue of Easy Eats Magazine where they published my answer to the question:
“With a busy schedule how do you add something new and still maintain a healthy balance in your life?” Here is my answer, as published…
Patients often ask me: “how can I make it look so easy to be healthy?”
Actually with a busy practice, daughter, pets and running a non-profit organization, I don’t have a choice but to make healthy choices in every moment, or else I couldn’t possibly keep up!
When I want to add sometime new, I think about how I can fit it into my usual routine in a way that requires the least effort – I call them “snippets.”
If it is about remembering to take a product to help calm my mind before going to bed, then I put that bottle near my tooth brush, which I use every night before bed. When I wanted to start taking fish oil every morning, I put the bottle in the fridge next to my favorite berry extract that I love to have in my morning shake.
Because I know that I keep my energy and metabolism going by eating protein every 3-4 hours, I keep almond butter packets and protein bars in my bag every where I go. When sorting out my gym schedule, I match it up with my daughter’s gymnastics schedule so I can go to the gym (next door) after I drop her off.
