I am in that wonderful time of life where retirement is just on the horizon. The countdown to my golden years has begun. Then I plan on spending most of my time with my grandkids. But for now, I am still a member of the corporate world and one thing I am focused on is staying fit and healthy while working towards retirement.
Working Towards Retirement
Stay active at the office
Being cooped up in an office all day, I have devised several ways to keep my mind and body active.
- Take a break and go for a walk outside. Sunshine is good for you.
- Instead of emailing my co-workers, I go to their desk. I get in a little movement and also see their smiling faces.
- This is the one way we all already know about…take the stairs instead of the elevator.
- Eat your lunch outside whenever possible. If you are lucky, there will be a shady area just for employees to eat. I like to read or work crossword puzzles while eating.
Did you know that 46% of Americans cite lack of time as a reason why they do not eat a healthy, balanced diet. This is an interesting fact from a recent survey from Prevention**
My hint for eating healthier is to become a label reader – the fewer ingredients listed, the better. Strive to make better choices by eating fewer processed foods and opting for high-protein, low carb foods.
I have taken vitamins since I was a child. My mother knew their value in filling in daily nutrition gaps and I believe in that same philosophy.
New Centrum® VitaMints® are a fantastic new product that fits easily into my busy work day schedule. They are refreshing and taste like a burst of freshness with their Cool Mint flavor. You don’t need food or water to take them with; you just chew them up! They include key nutrients – like B vitamins and vitamins C and E – to help support my energy, immunity and metabolism.** And Centrum® has been a brand I have trusted for years.
