Heather Rome, Formerly of DAI – Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle in the Corporate World

Heather Rome, who has global experience with Development Alternatives Incorporated (DAI) and beyond, knows just how hard it can be to balance a healthy lifestyle while working in the corporate world. This busy lifestyle often comes with considerable challenges, including long working hours and inconsistent travel schedules, along with what is quite possibly the biggest challenge of them all; stress management. While it is not impossible to follow a dietary and exercising regimen while working in an intense environment, it does require careful planning.

Diet is one of the biggest factors in living and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. With an inconsistent schedule, it is very important to have healthy food alternatives available in the office. Maintaining a personal drawer or shelf filled with quick protein based nutrition is essential. If you are even more serious about living healthy while meeting with success in the corporate world, packing your lunch and avoiding coffee are some of the most important things that you can do on a daily basis. Instead of caffeine and sugar, aim for herbal teas and fruit.


In order to maintain a healthy body, having a gym membership is beneficial. A membership with a daily class schedule and group workouts is more motivating than the idea of home exercising. When you have a membership at a gym, it means that you have already made a financial commitment, which adds another important incentive for you to exercise. Hiring a professional who can help train with you is also an additional motivating factor.
