Ok, so we have no excuses now. Yes, things still need to get done whether you have a job outside of the house or not, but things just got a lot easier. So buckle down and trudge on mothers. We have a lot less to feel guilty about now that the children are occupied with their studies. And let me just quickly say, YOU SHOULD NEVER FEEL GUILTY ABOUT TAKING TIME FOR YOU!
STEP ONE: Shut up and hit the gym. Quite with the I’ll start Monday jibber jabber. There is nothing special about starting one day of the week over the other. ;-) Carve some time out of your day to go pump some iron, take a class, or walk the neighborhood. Get focused and stay focused. Working out is a mood booster and who couldn’t use one of those?! Especially after a long, rainy summer with the kiddos.
STEP TWO: Yes, I’m going to say it. Make healthy eating choices. And quite with the fad diet junk. Here at Baer we don’t diet! WE EAT RIGHT! And it’s really not that hard to make healthy choices especially if you are committed to your success and progress. If you want it bad enough you will do what it takes. And lucky for all you Baer clients, we are going to be offering group trips to the grocery store to help you learn what to look for when you are eating properly.
STEP THREE: Get a restful sleep. I think this is overlooked by a lot by people. It’s like they are thinking “sleep, (shaking their head) I get plenty of sleep.” When in actuality they aren’t. A good quality sleep happens when you go to bed around the same time every night and rest for a good 7 or 8 hours. If you have a routine developed and hit the hay around the same time every night your body and mind will start being tired around that time, and it will be easier for you to fall asleep. This is our opportunity to recharge our much run down batteries from the day. Realize that this is important and take the steps to get a quality rest.
So, all you moms out there that feel extra pressure and stress over the summer months, well it’s almost over. Start planning YOUR plan of attack to get back into it. May the force be with you! ;-)
