Do you ever feel like everyone and everything is on your to-do list, except yourself? Do you find that your health, your needs always come last?
Today I had an opportunity to share some tips on how and more importantly WHY you should give yourself the gift of health this holiday season!
TIP #1: Put yourself on your priority list. Don’t wait until January 1st to get healthy, start now. By moving more and eating better NOW, you’ll be well on your way come January. We are all busy and especially women and moms put everyone else’s needs above our own. But we have to put ourselves on our priority lists.
TIP #2: Grant yourself permission. Its common for folks to to feel guilty for taking time away from the family to go the gym, or go for a walk. And if you’re really having a hard time with that one, then INCLUDE YOUR FAMILY! Grant yourself permission to put you first. YOU DO DESERVE IT! Realize that you are a better parent, spouse, sibling, co-worker or boss when you take care of you! By taking care of yourself you ARE taking care of your family.
TIP #3: Be patient and consistent. Regardless of whatever type of fitness program you choose, know that you’re not going to be great at it right away.Be patient with yourself, be kind to yourself - mentally and physically. Be proud of the fact that you are doing more today than you did yesterday.And you must, must, must be consistent. You don’t have to spend hours in the gym each day but you do have to do something!
Keep it simple, just move more.
