It is a regular practice to do your best in your career. However, when your best start impacting you, your health, and you're well being, then it is time to work on a balance. You can't do your best when you are stressed, unhealthy, or overwhelmed. It becomes a domino effect where you start making mistakes or get easily frustrated. Your health has an impact on your performance.
We all know just how important it is to abide by any rules put in place regarding the lockdowns that are being placed in countries all over the world. That said, consistent boredom/stress-fueled snacking, a lack of exercise and too much Netflix or computer games is not ideal as we try to control our weight.

Although it’s best to avoid eating out as much as possible when eating healthy, of course you’ll still be going out sometimes, whether it’s with friends or for a special occasion. Fortunately, there are some ways that you can enjoy your time at a restaurant without ruining your diet.
Self-isolationg and enforced quarantining are in force around the world, right now, and some people are coping better than others. There are those who believe that we should embrace the boredom, while others are determined to fill every single moment of their enforced isolation doing something, anything, to stave off boredom. Of course, the reasonable option is somewhere in the middle. After all, while plenty of studies and experts believe that there are benfits to being bored from time to time, there are also plenty of benefits to being busy if you're doing the right things.

A statement of obviousness: There's a lot going on right now.
I use to wonder how do we grow as people. We get taller, older, and sometimes bigger but how would we grow internally. I'm not talking about our organs I'm talking about what fundamentally makes us who we are. How do we better that? What can we do to be a better us? What can I do to be a better me? All question that college and life failed to prepare me for. Then I got to thinking, dangerous I know, but it lead me to the realization that there isn't just one answer. It's a system of answers that can better us in more than one possible way. I want to pass this knowledge on. Some of it will seem obvious but other points take a little more understanding. For me, self-growth has been like a staircase. Each step bringing me closer to who I will be.
Remember my early articles about how herbal medicine can have as many side effects as Western medicine? Well with Western medicine and its medication treatments, you can't get paranoid about every last side effect. Even normal cooking herbs can keep you healthy, such as oregano, sage, basil, fennel, garlic, lemon balm, peppermint (of which I'm allergic to), rosemary, Echinacea, (which I cannot use due to autoimmune disorders such as hypothyroidism and type 1 diabetes), sambucus or elderberry, licorice, astragalas, ginger, ginseng, and dandelion. Starting with oregano, some swear by the fact that oregano, can deal with stomach flu quite well, while also reducing viral infection. Medicinal herbs can heal you but then again don't through the Western medicine baby out with the bathwater.
The world we're living in turned into one big chaos within a few weeks. I mean, who would have thought at the beginning of 2020 that by now we would see borders closing, schools shutting down, people excessively buying pasta and toilet paper or canceled flights to anywhere in the world, but here we are... and this is the real world. How can you stay sane during this hectic time? How can we stay positive when 99% of the news shared by media worldwide is negative? Health is probably the most important thing in life. Without it, we wouldn't be able to enjoy any other aspects of living. Let's focus on our mental and physical well-being then, shall we?
