When you are exhausted from caring for your child, the last thing we want to do is exercise. But making a commitment whether it be 15 minutes or 45, taking time to workout can be life-changing.
- more energy
- better sleep
- improves overall heart health
- Reduces your dementia risk
- Decreases your osteoporosis risk
and so on. So do I need to say anymore? Again making a commitment to your overall health, is key to being there for your family in the long run.
If you are not sure you can do it alone, find an accountability partner. Or maybe you can find a Fitness Journal like the one shown here. Maybe you can join a group on Facebook.
But there should be no excuses that you can’t do 40 minutes of Yoga a week or go for a short brisk walk every day to get the blood flowing.
Everyone nowadays seems to have a Fitbit of some sort, and if you don’t you might want to think about purchasing one. You can see the calories you have burned off for the day, and the best part is it prompts you when you need to get and move around.
So again there really shouldn’t be any excuses. You just have to make a commitment and make it a part of your daily/weekly routine.
You got this!
