Last week was back to school for most children in Canada - a crazy time for most moms. But here we are, the week after. Have you put yourself on your to-do list yet?
Over the summer, schedules are here, there and everywhere. We travel, we camp, we enjoy the warm weather. But in September, there is a feeling of a new beginning, similar to the first of the year. Take advantage of this change of routine, and sadly, change of weather as well.
In church yesterday, a young man who had seen me at the gym asked me, "How do you make sure you get to the gym?" This was my advice to him and now, to you.
On Sundays, plan your week. For each day, calendar what you will be doing to keep fit. This could be a brisk walk, a yoga class, a session at the gym - something that gets you moving. Each night take a minute to re-evaluate. Were you successful? If not, what got in the way? How can you pick yourself back up and move forward tomorrow?
No matter how you slice it, physical activity is great for both body and mind. Making yourself a priority will give you increased energy, confidence and a clearer mind to deal with everything else in your life.
Until the next one, eat well, stay active, live happy and enjoy a Healthy Body for Life!
