Six Simple Lifestyle Changes For Major Health Benefits

lifestyle changes

Adding habits to your life that make you feel awesome naturally limits the things that don’t… and is a whole lot more fun. It’s also a lot more positive to focus on additions than, say, reductions. These are our favorite lifestyle changes that can make feeling great and staying consistent with healthy habits a whole lot easier, more fun, and more effective.

1. Start the day with a glass of water.

Starting the day hydrated is a great reminder/motivation to stay hydrated! As the day progresses, and we get into the hustle and bustle of our schedules, it can be more difficult to remember to sip regularly. So, start your day with a glass of water and you’re off to a great hydration start.

2. Bring your lunch to work.

Not only does bringing your lunch save time — you don’t have to trek anywhere or wait in long lines — but you also know exactly what’s in your food, you get to choose what you like, and you save money. Our favorite lunch is dinner leftovers, since the only extra effort you have to expend is putting the food into a portable container! Check out some of our favorite recipes to pack for lunch.

3. Cook one more dinner at home each week.

If you make a homemade dinner two times a week, try adding a third homemade dinner into the mix. Adding just one more homemade dinner means money savings, more lunches made from leftovers, and most likely more veggies (as long as you include them in the meal!).

4. Have treats on a regular basis.

Deprivation steals the fun from eating and once the fun is gone, it’s tough to be happy or consistent with food choices. Instead of thinking of treats as something that you try to avoid, plan for them in moderation on a regular basis!

5. Go grocery shopping weekly.

It’s a lot easier to put together meals and snacks at home when you’ve already got the supplies to do so. And if you feel overwhelmed with the idea of grocery shopping, start by writing down one breakfast, one lunch, and one dinner you’d like to make that week and get supplies for those. Once you get comfortable with those meals and they become your “go-to’s”, you can add different
ingredients into your weekly grocery haul.

6. Journal to wind down the day.

Journaling can help reduce stress and that can positively affect every other aspect of your life, from your sleep habits to your food and exercise choices. Journaling also allows you to take a step back and look at your thoughts, concerns, and dreams from a better perspective, which can make goals (and consistency in pursuing those goals) seem more clear and achievable.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
