We are not adding anything new if we say that we live at a frenetic pace. Whether it is because of work, family responsibilities, social relations - very necessary, on the other hand - or because of unforeseen events that arise on a daily basis. Our pace means that we have to establish a series of priorities in order to be able to carry out everything that needs to be done during the 24 hours of a day, without forgetting that it is very important to sleep and get quality rest.
We receive inputs all the time that we must be perfect: impeccable workers; affable fathers and mothers; fun friends and, let's not forget: rest well, be clean, well groomed and always look good. And we are also told to be physically active and to eat healthily. All of this, day after day, can end up making a mountain out of a molehill.
It is true that healthy habits should be a priority in order to live healthily in the present and, above all, thinking about the future. But we end up running up against a wall, which often seems insurmountable, which is "but where do I find the time?"
We know the theory and we also know that the ideal would be to do physical activity at least three or four days a week and to eat a healthy diet. But for one thing or another, we need time and we agree that this is precisely what we lack.
Well, we are going to see how we can find a balance so that we don't have to go from 0 to 100 and, at the very least, make some small changes that will mean a small investment of time, but will focus us towards a healthier life.
One day, a person asked us: "If I have little time, what is better to spend it on, physical activity or a healthy diet? The answer is practically impossible to answer because one without the other does not make sense, but we do want to propose a series of tips to be introduced into the routine, at the pace that each person sets for themselves, according to time, priorities, interests and personal responsibilities:
Let's not get nervous, we don't need to take this list and put a new burden on ourselves. We can start with some of the options and, once we have integrated them and they are no longer a burden, we can add new ones. Maybe some won't fit or won't make us feel comfortable, so we try others. The important thing is that, little by little, we make small changes that do not require a great effort, but that will offer us small portions of health.
