Fall is approaching and you know what that means, it’s the start of the busiest time of the year, school starts. Holidays are ahead of us and a lot of parties with friends and family need to be planned out. And have you noticed that when things start getting you busy, you tend to forget to take care of yourself. A lot of the time I forget to eat, don’t know what time it is and forget the day of the week. I know you have the same or similar experiences during this busy time of the year too
But don’t you worry any more, to help you get ready and to stop forgetting to take care of your well-being, today I’m sharing my 5 Tips to Staying Active This Fall, just before all the wonderful events begin.
Don’t you agree that we all need to start practicing self-care now and continuing it throughout the busiest time? If not now, we will make up some excuses and we will never make time to take care of ourselves.
Before we get into the tips, I want to chat a little bit more about my growing family. I don’t know about you, but I feel like this year, in particular, has gone by a lot quicker than ever. Maybe because my life is surrounded by my babies. It’s not just only me or only my husband and me anymore. It’s so true when people say that time flies so fast when you have kids because it’s happening to me and my husband every single day. We sometimes don’t want our kids to get bigger because we just want to enjoy all the beautiful infant and toddler moments with them. I’m tearing up typing this right now!
The other day we went shopping with my oldest daughter, she would normally be sitting in the cart and watching us shop. Now she’s helping us picking all the grocery and even picking her snacks. She’s such a big girl and a big helper. Not to brag but she’s the best daughter and the best sister ever! I got her, her first adidas outfit (adidas Toddler Trefoil Tee, adidas Children Originals Leggings, and adidas Toddler Baseline Shoes) and she can’t stop wearing them. She loves that she and I are wearing the same brand. I think I’m going to get her more matching outfits and start having her modeling kids clothing with me. Just can’t wait to start shopping and dressing her up to share all the cute pics with all of you! J
I shared a few photos of Alida below and after the cuteness, let’s dive into today’s post.
5 Tips to Staying Active This Fall
I’m a sucker at drinking water, to be honest. But I’m making some changes now by making sure that I am drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. As you know, you won’t be able to function right without hydrating yourself. My tips on how to get your water in are 1) have a 1 littler water bottle next to you all day. 2) Drink the whole bottle by noon time, refill it and drink the rest before you go to bed. This way you will get your 8 glasses in each day for sure.
Eat more fruits and vegetables for snacks
When going shopping make sure you get plenty of fruits and vegetables to munch on each day. Pick fruits and vegetables that you can easily snack on while working or on-to-go. Prep your snacks a week in advance in individual packages so you can grab them as you go. This way you can save more time and not need to have an excuse to pick up unhealthy snacks.
Workout first thing in the morning
This is the best thing that can get your active day going, workout first thing in the morning. When working out in the morning, you’re not only getting your physical activity done but you are giving yourself a great start to your day. I found that when I wake up early to get my workout in, I am a lot more energize and ready for the day to come. This requires a lot of self-motivation as waking up early to workout is not always the easiest thing to do. But I believe in you. A quick tip is to set your alarm 15-30 minutes before your normal day starts and make it a new healthy routine.
Easy yoga poses before bed
After a long busy day, try to unwind with easy yoga poses before bed. I found that by doing some simple yoga poses like Tree Pose, Corpse pose, Reclining Bound Angle Pose, and Lotus Pose can help calm you down. Doing yoga right before you sleep will help you to get a well-rested night and wake up feeling more recharged. Find yoga poses that are comfortable for you to do as there are many of them to choose from.
Take a deep breath and relax
Every time you feel stress or things are starting to get out of control, doing some breathing exercises will help you to feel better again. I do this all day long. Lol! It really does help to calm your mind and body down. Try doing this, Jason Selk’s breathing technique, take a deep breath in and hold it for 6 seconds, hold it for 2 seconds and exhale for 7 seconds. After doing this you will be calmer and more focused on what you are doing.
