5) Can you provide readers with any tips on how to balance healthy living and working? What are some tricks you’ve picked up along the way?
-Remove yourself from the typical rounds of office-inspired junk. Move the candy bowl from your reach, or change the route that you take to the kitchen to refill your water bottle. If you tell your coworkers "no" enough times, they'll eventually stop asking.
-Walk around the building/office/parking lot during breaks. In addition to circling the parking lot on my breaks, I have also been known to schedule an occasional date with the stairs in my building. Sometimes it feels good to just move around a little, and some extra stairs can give me an extra boost of energy after staring at the computer screen for hours!
-Pack a balanced lunch, and keep healthy snacks on hand. I always keep a selection of lunch and snack options in my desk drawer for when I'm in a pitch. I also have a "secret" candy stash--because we all need a Tootsie Pop from time to time!
-Keep a dedicated water bottle at work. Before I started leaving a water bottle at work, I tended to forget to bring water on a daily basis, or I couldn't find a cup to refill (which is not uncommon in my small company). With a water bottle in my office all the time, I can just refill it and have it on hand every day. Since many of us often mistake thirst for hunger, hydration is key!
6) Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I am planning my wedding for next year (!!), so in 10 years, I will be married and hopefully have a couple of kids. By that time, I hope to also be working in the field of holistic nutrition, and helping others learn to eat intuitively and lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle! I also plan to continue blogging and freelance writing, which I hope will lead me to more writing opportunities in the future.
