Sometimes, life can get crazy. Life is tough, and it doesn’t take much to feel like everything is spiraling out of control. It is at trying times like these that it is more important than ever to control what you can. You can’t control everything in life, but you can control what you put in your body.Let the constant of eating right and getting some exercise every day be your anchor when the waves of uncertainty are tossing you about.
The benefit of doing this is two-fold. Firstly, having this one constant routine in your day mentally gives you a bit of a break. Your brain has a chance to relax. It recognizes the routine, knows it, is familiar with it. Just like you can make a familiar drive almost on autopilot, a routine gives your brain something to work on that isn’t all that taxing and that can bring your stress levels down.
Secondly, continuing to eat right and exercise helps support your immune system. It keeps your body going strong, right when you really need that extra strength. When things are crazy enough as it is, the last thing you need is to not be feeling well on top of things. Control what you put into your body and you’ll be feeling your best to take on whatever life throws at you.
