((Make yourself a priority.))
We often get caught up in the chaos life brings us, and it’s important to take time for our mental and physical health. Here are a few ways I’m reducing stress and improving my overall well being.
Hot Lemon Water –Hydrate before you Caffeinate (Thanks Shona Vertue). I have been drinking hot lemon water every single morning for the past month before drinking any coffee. I have read about the benefits of drinking lemon water in so many blogs, and I thought I would give it a try. It is a great way to get a jumpstart on your hydration for the day. It’ll also boost your vitamin C intake, aid in digestion, and provide other health benefits.
Sign up for work-out classes. I use an app on my phone called ClassPass to sign up for Pure Barre classes. I recently completed my 10th class, and I’m loving it! Scheduling a class on this app makes you have more of a commitment to working out, because you are penalized for skipping them or canceling less that 12 hours prior. You are always more likely to to follow through when you plan ahead! If you are interested in this app or pure barre, feel free to message me! I can invite you through the app for a free class. 🙂
Only drink alcohol on the weekends. Okay, so I don’t always follow this rule. BUT, if I do drink a glass of wine during the week, I drink one glass of FITVINE. This company makes wine that has significantly less sugar, carbs, and calories than your typical glass of wine. (A solution to all of our problems, right 😆). I’ll link their website here. Definitely worth trying!
Exercise your mind. — It’s easy to get home from work and sit on the couch watching meaningless T.V. and scrolling through social media until it’s time for bed. Try reading something productive, listening to a podcast, or write in a journal instead. Personally, I love reading other people’s blogs who are self-employed. I also like to read more specific real estate related books that help to further my knowledge in my career.
We all need a reminder to take care of ourselves sometimes. I hope you enjoyed reading!
