First up is something I usually do, however I have noticed over some busy months I’ve slacked off. That is to drink more water, and aim for around 2-3L a day. This is a rough daily intake guide for an adult. Our bodies are made up of 50-60% water and we need this to function properly. If you're highly active or breastfeeding this is even more important.
Eat healthy. This is vital. Nourish your body with foods to fuel you and keep you thriving and functioning optimally and avoid foods that you know add nothing and will just slow you down or potentially harm you. As health is wealth, if you have health you have everything.
Get enough sleep/rest. Make sure you get plenty of sleep/rest when you can. If you're lucky enough to get a full night of sleep, then take advantage of that. 7-9 hrs is the recommended minimum (my goodness… this sounds amazing to me!) If you're like me and currently waking every 2-3 hrs with baby, try to have a nap when your little one/s nap to make up for broken sleep.
*I have to admit, this will be my most challenging one, as I love being productive and getting things done during nap time.
Move your body. Don't over complicate this one by trying to add a complex workout everyday, especially if you're struggling to get adequate sleep. Start by keeping it simple, just move. Anything from a brisk walk, bike ride with the kids, stretches, yoga and at home pilates or a bodyweight workout. Post workout you might be surprised, releasing endorphins will energize and make you feel great.
If you're in the market for new skincare a few of my favorite brands I love and use daily are Kylie’s Professional, Wildcrafted Organics, Edible Beauty and Organic Spa. All of these brands have in common; they’re natural, clean, organic, toxic free, cruelty free, mostly vegan, Australian Made and Owned.
*This habit will be my easiest to achieve because it’s already in place and I look forward to it morning and night. I highly recommend getting on board this one.
Set aside ‘You’ time. At least 30 minutes to do something for you. That may look like; moving your body or just simply relaxing, stretching, meditating, sitting in some sun, listening to a podcast, reading a book, writing a journal or something you desire or crave to do each day. Tag team the kids with your partner or if you're a single parent/carer utilize some educational TV here or during nap time.
1. Give yourself a weekly or fortnightly at home face mask! I’m so excited for this, I’ll be stocking up on some masks from my fav brands and alternating ones I do to treat myself.
So, to take away from today: eat healthy, drink water, get plenty of rest, move your body, take care of your skin and compliment yourself daily. Staying consistent in all of these daily habits will be great for our overall health.Then adding a few extra self care options into your year, fortnightly at home facial, take up a hobby, have bathes, get your hair done and do your nails.
