Yesterday, as I was running some errands during my lunch break from school I realized that though I’d been on the go a lot lately I wasn’t exhausted. I know this is mainly due to my change in health – eating better and getting regular exercise – and I’m so grateful.
- Taking care of what and how much you are eating. Track your calories or food choices for a while if you aren’t sure where you’re going wrong. It will help, I promise.
- Get some exercise in each week. I don’t workout six days a week, but I do try and get a good, solid, 30 minute, sweaty workout in at least 3-4 days a week, more if possible.
- Drink that water. Yes, I added this one for free. 🙂 It will help you be in top shape for your workouts…trust me. (I’ll write about my dehydrated workout later.)
- And get that rest. Your health is important. Getting an appropriate amount of rest is vital to your health. If you only need six hours to make it through a day, then that’s fine. We are all different, but that doesn’t mean we don’t all need rest.
Believe me, I understand the duties of wife, mother, working woman and the fun of hobbies too, but something I’ve really come to learn is that when I take care of the few basic guidelines I’ve outlined above I’m in better shape to handle all my duties and even my “play” time.
