Hi Friends! I decided that this year I want to focus on a different type of monthly wellness as the year progresses. I was hoping you all could do it with me. So each month we will have a different focus. This first month’s focus is going to be exercise and moving our bodies.
Monthly Wellness Series: Month One
Why I think it’s important: I think moving my body is the best way for me to feel good each day. I also notice a huge difference in both my anxiety and my sleep when I do it. Getting in a good hard workout is not necessarily realistic each day which is why I try to do something, even a walk with my kids. It doesn’t have to be a full hour-long workout or a big thing! I think showing my kids what a healthy habit is like moving our bodies, getting outside, doing yoga is so important. My son LOVES to come to do yoga with me. He thinks it’s so fun and asks all the time if he can “workout with mommy” when he’s bigger. I also think it’s important to have something for myself every day. Something I can schedule in and know is time to work on ME. I think as moms we have to have something for ourselves.
What I do: So I am a BIG fan of working out and routine. Each morning I get up around 5:30 and do about 45 minutes of cardio. Then I do weights. Once or twice a week I do Melissa Wood Health which I talked about here. I also walk every day. I have spoken many times about how I do try to get to 10,000 steps a day. I also love to mix in yoga and barre when I can which is one reason I love MWH.
The Challenge for this month: I challenged myself to move my body for 30 minutes a day and to do 10,000 steps a day. I would love it if you participated in one of them with me! I think knowing we have a goal each day, or a challenge we can work towards is great motivation.
So tell me…
Will you be participating in my monthly challenges?
