Most people think it is more convenient to eat fast food. Many of those same people complain of not having enough time with their kids, better yet, time for themselves. I am about to show you why fast-food could be a contributing factor as to why you don’t have that time.
Consider how long it takes for you to get into your car, drive to a fast food restaurant, sit in the drive-thru line, and then drive back to either your job or your house? The average fast-food cycle takes about 20 to 30 minutes.
Coincidentally, most people who are living a fast-paced life, will frequent a fast food restaurant 1 to 3 times a day. That’s right…breakfast, lunch and dinner! If you add up all the time that is being spent going to and from the drive-thru line, you could be wasting between 4 and 12 hours a week that could be spent with your family.
In reality, becoming healthy can help you become more family oriented. Imagine what you can do with those extra 5 or 10 hours a week. There is an art to eating better and living better. Replacing bad habits with good ones and making a simple shift as to where and how your time is spent.
This may not be attainable overnight, however, this should be a starting point. This single shift in behavior will improve your quality of life. The moral to this story is fast food isn’t so convenient after all
