You know some times we forget how far we as women have come. We have not always been seen as equals to men in terms of politics, voting, job oppurtunities and countlesss other things. Over the past few decades we have made significant strides towards gaining our own independence. Instead of simply being house makers, now we are , business women, doctors, entrepreneurs, lawyers, along with being children bearers, mothers and spectacular wives. But how can we do all of that and maintain a healthy body?
The key is to TAKE CARE of our complete selves mind, body and spirit. No matter how busy your schedule is, it is imperative to workout at least 30 minutes a day. If you are not a fan of the gym, try taking your dog on a long walk or walking up and down your home steps 20-30 times. Try putting on some dance music while cleaning the house and letting your body move to the beat.
Whatever you decide to do, keep your body in motion. It’s not simply about having a slim figure. It is about your health, studies show that working out promotes a healthy heart, mind and spirit. If you work out for at least 30 minutes a day along with a well balanced diet you will see that you have a lot more energy to get through the day.
Next thing, TAKE TIME FOR YOU. We as women as were born to nurture others, it’s in our nature. But all too often we forget to take care of the most important person… Ourselves. Be sure to take time every now and then to do something solely for you. Get your nails done, go to the spa, have a girls night out anything that you do make sure that it’s something you and you alone want to do.
Finally and most importantly REST. I can not stress to you the importance of beauty rest.
Not only is it amazing for your skin, but it imperative for your heart. Studies show that women who get 6-8 hours of sleep a night, live longer happier and healthier lives. Our bodies regroup themselves while they are sleeping. Make sure you take the time to get some old fashioned beauty rest.
If you’ll do this you’ll see that your modern day superwoman cap with sore that much higher.
Remember that our minds, bodies and souls need us just like everyone else.
We are aren’t any good to anyone if we are tired.
