“Man, I’ve got such a busy week coming up. I have to go to the gym five times, and make sure I eat right” — Said no one, ever
Let’s face it, when we get really busy, it’s our healthy habits that suffer. And hey, sometimes work or school obligations need to take priority. But here are seven signs that maybe, just maybe, you’ve started to let yourself go:
Your gym stuff is accumulating dust
Is this your home gym? Does your gym bag have a think layer of dust on it? These are pretty sure signs that you haven’t been exercising lately. Nothing is more important than your health, so make time for a few quick workouts this week (check out our recent Workout Wednesday posts).
You haven’t done laundry in a while
If wearing the same thing you wore yesterday starts to become a common fashion decision for you, that’s not a good sign. You need to look your best to be your best.
You look tired pretty much all the time
Have you been hearing “You look tired” a lot lately? Take the hint, and catch up on your sleep. You can only burn the candle at both ends for so long.
Your clothes seem to be shrinking…
Or that least that’s the only explanation you can think of.
Your friends don’t remember you
If you call up your friends and they say “Jake who?” (assuming your name is in fact Jake), this is a bad sign. In all seriousness, it can be hard to find time for our friends when life gets hectic, but just think of all you’ve invested into those friendships, and all that they’ve done for you.
Things in the bedroom have gotten… quiet
It’s quiet…. too quiet. We don’t need to go into too much detail here, but let’s just remember that there are many facets to a happy, well-rounded life — not just work.
Your kitchen appliances have become extra storage space
Has your busy schedule meant that you’ve been ordering a lot of takeout lately? If you haven’t cooked for yourself in a while, schedule some time this week to make yourself a home-cooked meal. You deserve it.
