HAPPY SEPTEMBER FIT FAM!!!!!
Welcome to fall… ahhh one of my most favorite seasons!! Kids are back in school, hopefully life has resumed some sense of normalcy! This week’s topic is all about SELF- CARE!!
Now that the craziness of summer is over, you can make more time to focus on YOU!! What is it that you seem to “just not have time for”?! Is it working out, making sure you have healthy meals for the day, or even just some alone time to take a walk or meditate? How can we schedule in some “me time” …? the best way I’ve learned to do this is to make an unbreakable appointment like you would with the doctors and miss it for nothing!!!
My first suggestion is to wake up a little earlier than normal! It’s amazing what you can get done in the morning before anyone else is up!! I wake up earlier then I would really like, to get in some quite time to drink my coffee in peace! Lol (before my son wakes up). I’ve learned when my morning starts off calmly my day is more likely to follow! And I allow myself to do whatever feels right… it could be a 15-min meditation, some light yoga and stretching or an all-out workout on my home treadmill!! And I don’t know about you, but when I start my day with a good sweat I tend to make better food choices! But if I do happen to indulge I don’t feel guilty!
If waking up early just isn’t your thing, maybe scheduling a weekly date with a friend to grab coffee and go for a walk! Try a new yoga class close to work so you can go straight there! And my most favorite, which I make a priority once a month is a massage!!
When you give to yourself, you are better equipped to serve others… Give yourself the chance to DO YOU! Declare it! Set an intention!!
What you focus on EXPANDS! If you focus on being tired and “to busy” that will be your reality.
Will all keep you from being your best most productive self…
Remember done is better than perfect. Show up and play full out in whatever you do. Making yourself a priority is NOT selfish it is necessary!!
If you are in need of some inspiration go listen to a podcast from my beautiful friend and mentor @loriharder the podcast is on ITunes called Earn your happy! You can thank me later!
I would love to hear one thing you can change right now to give to yourself!! Let’s make September all about YOU!! 🦄👍🏽🔥
Much love and healthiness!!
