Our world is characterised by an incredible fast pace. People are not only effected by that at work and the need to get fast results, but also when it comes to nutrition. Many people eat on the go, they do not take time anymore to cook and thus turn to processed food. Digestion starts in our mouth, if you do not take time enough to start the process properly your body will not be able to digest the food well and you will not be able to take up the potential amount of nutrients that are available in your food.
Exercising is deep in our gens, humanity needed to walk for miles in order to get the food to survive. Much has changed since then and our daily activity is not looking for food anymore. These days most of the people’s jobs are mind-based rather than physical. It might seem odd, but for that reason exercising has never been more important. The mind affects the body, but the body also affects the mind. Research that puts these two parts together are still in its infancy, but some of the latest science John Ratey mentioned in his books are promising.
Lifestyle is the third pillar for achieving optimal health. It does not just matter what you eat and that you move, but also how you spend the rest of your life. Stress at work is normal in such a fast changing and thus demanding world. Even if you have a job you are passionate about. Due to the impossibility to avoid that, it is more crucial than ever to find ways how to deal with this stress. Look for methods that can calm you down, make you appreciate the moments, and forget about the things at work.
