Healthy Habits Are The Foundation To A Good Life

March 11, 2016

Happy Friday everyone!

I haven’t posted a Friday Favorites/lifestyle post in a while now. Shame on me 🙂

So this week I was in Paris on a business trip and after seeing me get up early to work out at our hotel and my healthy eating habits even when on the go, one of my colleagues asked me: “Why are you so committed to being healthy?” I know, pretty crazy for someone to ask that kinda question, at least for me.

In my opinion we have every reason in the universe to commit ourselves to our health. And that is no burden for me. I believe and feel that my daily choices are crucial to the quality of my life, at home and in the office. I feel much better when I’m staying active and my eating is on point. Am I obsessed and never eat a treat? No, I’m not. But balance is crucial, this is truly our mantra. 🙂

So today I wanted to share an interesting article I read a few years ago that discusses how those who reach for unhealthy snacks, or forego food altogether, have a 66% higher chance of having an unproductive day. And having lived in Germany for the last 7 years I’m now a convert and confess that that productivity is KEY!

Going back to my colleague’s question, no I didn’t answer him in preacher mode and state scientific facts, but rather chose to answer him in a more relatable way: would you put cheap fuel and be negligent to a Lamborghini? He looked at me surprised and said: “hell no!”. Well there you go, neither would or do I. Because yes, I am a Lamborghini 😉

On that note, have a healthy active weekend!
