Get healthy
Start by getting healthy. If you feel healthy then you are likely to feel better about your life and have a more positive outlook. Start by evaluating your diet.

Your lunches, rather than being well balanced meals may be a sandwich from a deli or a bag of crisps and a soda – neither of which are good for you. In order to counter the busy week, prep your meals over the weekend. You can prep vegetables and fruits that you can box individually so that you simply grab a box to go. You can cook up a big batch of plain brown rice so that you can toss in serving with your salad or else bake some chicken to go with. The chicken can be shredded in for a salad or sandwich for two more lunches.

Change your look
