Simplify your exercise routine [simple is better, after all]

Your journey to fitness can be a simple stroll, it doesn’t have to be a sprint unless you want it to be. That is the whole point – to not lose sight of yourself.

Only then can we grow into the divine creatures we were envisioned to become.

Focusing on your kids while focusing on your career, your partner, your finances, your responsibilities, and all of those myriads of other things we inevitably end up having to deal with, can leave you drained and depleted. What most parents, and moms in general, forget to focus on is themselves. There never seems to be enough time or space or money or whatever the excuse is to take care of themselves. Yes, our lives are busy. Yes, we do have seemingly more important things to focus on. Yes, we are allowed to live for our kids. But no – you are not allowed to forget yourself.
