Happy Monday!! It’s time to get motivated, get moving and crush the day! I am starting my day off extra early and extra busy with filming cooking videos all day for you guys! So excited to share these new videos with you soon!!
But in the meantime, let’s talk about getting physical! It’s time to work hard, listen to your body, and don’t forget to deal with the stressors in your life in the best way possible. Exercise is so important and often we can deal with some of the stress in our lives through physical activity. BUT when stress is too much and exercise will just produce more stress hormones in the body, sometimes it may be time to rest instead of hitting the gym.
If we are talking about most of the country, physical activity is something I definitely emphasize for a healthy routine. But if you’re part of that smaller percentage that works out almost every day and it has become partly an addiction, you may need a little reminder to REST. If you finding yourself constantly sick or gaining weight or sleep is disrupted or you’re constantly sore or you’re just exhausted…it’s probably time for a rest day. Or even multiple rest days.
Many of us have been taught to deal with stress daily and just live with it. I know I have. But when life throws more stressors than usual, don’t forget to take care of your body first. That may mean that gym, but that may also mean sleep or time with your family or a walk with your dog. Or it may just mean some time on the couch. Get to know your body and listen to it. Truly listen. Because it will tell you what it needs if you are just willing to get to know it. I know that sounds weird, but the more we take care of ourselves in the best way possible every single day, the more we will know what we needs when times get tough. So today, on this fine Monday, take care of yourself so you can start the week off in the best way possible!!
