Parents: Get back into the rhythm of the day with an exercise routine


Image

As a parent of young kids, it can be challenging to schedule in time for yourself each day. There will always be plenty of others things to catch up on and before you know it, you have spent the last few months or even years of your life, not having taken time just for yourself. Don’t become a victim of your situation! Even if it’s just getting in a 15 minute workout doing yoga, tai chi, qigong, a morning walk, or a simple stretch routine, I challenge you to try and schedule in that time just for yourself. Exercise helps flush toxins, rejuvenates and repairs your body, and boosts your overall mood. Wake up a half hour earlier or schedule it in after the kids have gone to bed. I promise you won’t regret it. And even if you miss a few days, get right back on it. You’ll feel amazing in no time. What things do you like to do just for yourself?

  1. I am right with you — moving the body is an awesome way to take care of yourself. And I also believe in the trickle down effect – when you can care for yourself you have more to offer others.
