Are you exercising? We didn’t think so. The thing is, just because you are looking to look after yourself for a change doesn’t mean that you have to give up the little luxuries you can indulge in from time to time.

  1. Get some sleep. It’s understandable that you would want to stay up later after the kids go to bed and after work. When you’ve spent all day long belonging to other people, you want to belong to yourself for a little while. The thing is, you need at least seven good hours of sleep to be able to function and that means ensuring that you are resting for a change. The effects of sleep deprivation are massive, and you can really feel the lack of it after a while. Sleep is your recovery time; give yourself that gift.
  2. Buy a new water bottle. If you’re dehydrated, you’re not going to be able to think clearly. You have to look at what you are currently drinking through the day and adapt so that you’re drinking at least eight 8oz glasses of water per day. Do it gradually if you’re not used to drinking so much water anymore, though! 
  3. Learn to eat better. Get yourself online and find recipes that contain the foods that you like to eat. You need to think about what you’re putting into your body. If you’re heading to the bathroom within ten minutes of eating, then you may be intolerant to something and that needs to change. It’s not going to be easy to do it but your body matters.
  4. Get moving your body. Exercise sucks when you’re not used to moving, but if you don’t move your body from time to time, you’re going to find it difficult to maintain your flexibility and fitness. You really need to work on yourself here because movement keeps your organs and your joints healthy – and you deserve that. Book into the gym or join a class. You won’t regret it.
