Get Moving

It doesn’t matter whether you need to workout more often or whether you simply want to shake up the routine you have now because you need to try and choose routines that help to motivate you. You should be trying to take an outdoor yoga class, or even signing up for a 5K run. Hiring a personal trainer is also a good idea. If you want to try something a little different, then Tai Chi at home is never a bad idea. If you can, just make sure that you are doing something that you love. If dancing and rollerblading with your kids is what you love, then go with that.

Feed your Body Well

Good food will fuel your body, so take the time to make sure that you are eating and drinking well. High-quality ingredients are a must. It’s natural for you to want to put your kids first, but at the same time, you won’t have the energy you need to get through the day if you do not take care of yourself as well. Some simple ideas to make healthy eating your priority would be for you to go vegetarian at least once per week. You can also try and shop at the local market so you can find some organic produce. Drinking water instead of soda is huge too, so don’t overlook that either.

Get Connected

Don’t let your schedule stop you from squeezing out time for your family and your friends. If you know that weekly date nights just aren’t on the cards then at least try and schedule some time for you both to connect on a monthly basis. You might also want to try and schedule in a coffee with your friends, or you can invite your neighbours over for dinner. Either way, sometimes it feels good to connect with others and you would be surprised at how much better it can make you feel about yourself and your life.


You wouldn’t let your kids miss out on their annual check-up, would you? For this reason, you shouldn’t let your health fall to the wayside either. Too many women ignore the signals that their body’s are trying to tell them, and they don’t seek advice when they need it either. This can result in serious health scares. If you want to avoid this, then make health your priority. Research osteopaths in your area, sign up with a good dentist and visit your doctor if you’re worried about anything. The peace of mind you’ll get will make it well worthwhile.
