As a homeschooling mom, I get how hard it can be to keep fitness and healthy eating as a priority. My latest example: in order to get out the door for a run, I’ve started bringing my youngest with me, even though I prefer my runs as alone time for clearing my mind. (He enjoys it!) We cannot let kids or busyness stop us from taking care of ourselves. Self-care isn’t selfish; it’s essential.
I’m sharing ten habits you can easily incorporate into your life. These relatively small things can make a BIG difference in your overall health. Start with one at a time if you need to. Even if you’re already active and fit, you can still probably improve upon some of these; I know I can!
Most people don’t drink enough water, but it’s absolutely essential for your body. It helps your process food, flush out toxins, and even helps your skin look better! Make a point of keeping a beverage nearby; water is best but other drinks do count, too. Kids tend to dehydrate even more quickly than adults so pay extra close attention to their water intake.
