Staying Healthy While Building Your Online Internet Business

Posted on October 18, 2011 by CJ Article Team


As more and more people telecommute from home, and start creating their online business, there is a growing health problem emerging. Finding oneself parked in front of a computer for several hours, in one’s pajamas (or less?), leads to a more sedimentary lifestyle. Less exercise which cause less caloric use, which yields to weight gain, and eventually to obesity. The medical profession lists multiple health complications that have their roots in excessive weight gain.

The internet user is now caught somewhere between that proverbial “rock and a hard place.” You’re successfully building your internet business, investing the time and mental energy, yet at the same time, your physical health is suffering. One of the key causes for weight gain is poor eating habits. You wind up snacking rather than properly eating, and we all know what foods are high on the list for snacking. All that stuff that tastes absolutely delicious and goes right to our bellies, thighs, hips, etc.

Hunger is the monster that we need to tame. After all, we DO have to eat. Just as we have disciplined ourselves to follow successful work habits and schedules, we also need to reinforce healthy eating and wellness habits.

Here are some useful tips, that can get you through those hunger/snacking cravings, and not make you feel as if you’ve suddenly become an ever-starving rabbit.

  1. Before beginning your day, eat a protein rich breakfast. This can be two eggs, prepared to your liking or a grilled cheese sandwich, Even a bagel with peanut butter works. You do, however, want to keep the carbs down as low as possible as the body will store the unused carb energy as fat, unless you plan on exercising, right after eating.
  2. Keep a litre bottle of cold water or better still: CLUB SODA, nearby. Drinking the water will fill you up. Carbonated water, fills you up even more. This does two positive things for you. It first will stave off your hunger, plus, it will help you take in the required amount of water a person needs each day.
  3. Fruit is excellent snack food. Cut up a cantaloupe, watermelon, honeydew or pineapple, and nosh on that. If you’re not handy with food preparation, most supermarkets do sell these fruits already cut up and ready to eat. These snacks are very low in calories, very delicious, will satisfy your sweet tooth craving, and help keep the hungry snack monster at bay.
  4. Remember to set aside time AWAY from your computer to be active in something. Scheduling a 20 minute walk is excellent. On a beautiful day, it is also very self therapeutic to get out of the house and enjoy the sun and world around you. Other types of mini-exercises can include doing some abdominal flexing while sitting at your computer. However, nothing beats getting up and DOING some form of activity for about 20 minutes.

Of course, if you have any specific medical issues, it is important to check with your doctor before beginning any particular exercise or health regimen. Consulting with a dietitian is also a good idea, if you have a medical condition such as Diabetes.

Being financially independent and healthy is something we all want. Make sure we look after our physical and mental wellness, too, so we can fully enjoy the fruits of our endeavors.
