With so many things happening these days and everyone always on the go, it feels as though we get left behind when we take a moment to stop and smell the roses. For those who understand that always rushing brings on a host of health complications – good for you. For those who don’t have a choice or actually want to be a part of the rat race, here are some things you can do to speed up your life.
Meals on Wheels
Cooking is one activity that takes a very long time. Unfortunately, the healthier the dish, the longer it usually takes to put it together from scratch. The best way to speed up the process is to have quickie meals that fill you up and give you the nutrition you need. For breakfast, find smoothies, protein powder shakes, yoghurt drinks, chicken soup, juice or anything nutritious you can condense into liquid form. Whole grains and cereals may be healthy but they take time to prepare and eat; the above breakfast beverages can be gulped down on your way to work and will still fill you up.For lunch and dinner, have a delivery service and a few health conscious restaurants on your speed dial so that they will deliver to your desk without you having to worry about it.

Make sure that you get vital greens, some poultry or fish and a tiny bit of carbs like a slice of bread, pasta etc. Salad boxes, sandwiches, and fruit salads are a great way to reduce the time you spend on your meals.
Doing a little bit of laundry every few days is a waste of time and money. If you have a washer dryer unit then save a load for a weekend and then put it all in while you get some other work done. Invest in an automatic washing machine that you can set the timer on, otherwise you will just be running back and forth trying to get more water in, stopping it, spinning it etc. Have a dryer because it takes more time to hang out the laundry to dry in the sun than for you to load the machine and set it to wash.
If you don’t have a washer or dryer, go find a laundromat that has lockable machines or ones which lock themselves until you pay in money. This way, you can dump your clothes and take off, get some errands done and come back in time to get your laundry. There is no sense in waiting around. Take the extra effort to find one that is secure, even if it means going out of your way because you will save more time in the end by not having to hand around guarding your underwear.
