Moms, we have a lot on our plates! It can be tough to find time for ourselves between taking care of our families and juggling our busy schedules. But it’s essential that we take care of ourselves, too.
WHY MAINTAIN A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
The best way to live a long and healthy life is by eating right, exercising regularly (at least 30 minutes per day), getting enough restful sleep each night. We all know that maintaining everything can be challenging when it comes to being a mom.
When you become a mom, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and forget your own needs.
We are our family priority. We’ll do anything for them, but first and foremost, it is about taking good care of ourselves so that we can be there emotionally and physically when they need us most.
FITNESS ROUTINES FOR BUSY MOMS
I have been hearing this question often lately. How do you fit fitness routines into your busy life? Do you even want to? What are the benefits of it anyway? I am not a personal trainer, nor do I have any professional training in anything fitness or sports-related, but I can give you advice based on my own experiences over the years.
1. Eat healthy foods to give your body the nutrients it needs
2. Get plenty of exercises to stay in shape – lately, I’ve been finding a TON of quick resources on TikTok and YouTube.
3. Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated – I’m challenging myself to drink at least one gallon a day
4. Take a break when you need it – mothers are not superhuman!
5. Join or start a mother’s group to connect with other moms and share advice and support or connect with like-minded moms on social media. You don’t need face-to-face interaction to make friends and have accountability partners
THE EASIEST WAY TO START EATING HEALTHIER AS A MOTHER
When you are juggling your family’s needs, it can be challenging to eat healthily. But if you can find a few minutes each day to prepare healthy snacks and meals, you will be more able to nip those unhealthy cravings in the bud. Even if you can’t meal prep for a whole week, you can start with just a day or two at a time. If you’re going to change up your diet drastically, talk with your doctor first. Smaller portions are a great first step.
IS WHEY PROTEIN SAFE FOR MOMS?
Women who need protein supplementation have a great reason to prioritize whey over other sources. Whey is an everyday source of protein that can be used to help you gain the strength and energy needed to get through your daily life. Having it in a shake is the easiest (and also really delicious) way to enjoy whey protein. Naked Nutrition reached out and asked if I would try their products, more specifically their Naked Shake Hot Cocoa (which is seasonal, so the next best would be the Naked Shake Chocolate) and it’s bomb! It is so yummy, especially when you are craving something sweet. There’s a ton of flavors available, so if chocolate isn’t your thing, you can see what other Naked Nutrition products are available.
Naked Nutrition also has a Recovery mushroom supplement that at first I thought would be funky but it’s actually not bad! Adding supplements like this to your diet can help in shedding the unwanted weight and just improving your overall health. Ever since drinking way more water a day, something as simple as that, I’ve felt so much better. It really does matter what we put into our bodies.
Being a mom is hard work, and it’s essential to take care of yourself so you can stay healthy and happy. These tips will help you maintain a healthy lifestyle while balancing the demands of motherhood. Fitness, nutrition, and self-care are essential for all moms, so make sure to implement these tips into your daily routine. And don’t forget to spend time with your family – they’re the most important thing in your life!
