When I worked in corporate, I was on my feet in heels all day. Let’s just say a gym membership was not needed with all the commuting and moving around I did. Now, working from home, my commute is a bit different. My work involves more sitting than it does going from meeting to meeting. So I had to adjust my diet a bit as well.
In the mornings, I like to have oatmeal or a warm cereal to start my day. I will usually have tea in between meals instead of snacking. For lunch, I like to go with a nice whole wheat veggie pasta. This is my biggest meal of the day so I load up on veggies. After lunch I like a nice big Americano. It’s my guilty pleasure of the day. Dinner for me is always before 8 pm and is usually some form of soup. I don’t like to eat raw foods in the evening as they are a bit much to digest. Before bed I will also have some nice mint tea (literally just 4 mint leaves and some hot water) to help me sleep.
Why does your diet matter?
Have you ever noticed that when you eat certain foods, you feel different afterwards? (Hello Thanksgiving dinner naps!!!) The reality is, your diet is everything. It’s how you feel, it’s where all your illnesses start, it determines how you are able to get things done everyday. When you are running your own business from home, that’s pretty darn important. Take notice of how you feel after eating certain foods over the next week or so.
How to get your perfect diet
I have a little secret I’m going to share with you today. It’s how I know I’m eating for my specific body and life instead of following someone else’s perfect plan. It’s called Ayurveda. It’s one of the world’s oldest holistic medicines developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. However, it’s not something that is a one size fits all type of thing. I highly recommend you find a good Ayurvedic practitioner to help you put together a plan. Check out either Atma Ayurveda or Dru Yoga for more information.
