- move – just 15 minutes of exercise can change your day…and your life. i love starting my day with movement – especially yoga. it sets me right with the world and with myself. if an exercise routine is new to you, start small. incorporate a manageable amount of fitness into your week (like 15-20 minutes, 3 days a week), and grow from there. don’t beat yourself up about what you should do – just do something. some exercise is better than no exercise at all.
- sleep – getting 7-8 hours of sleep is the backbone of any truly healthy lifestyle. without restorative sleep, your body is not prepared to tackle the day – mentally or physically. How can your body expect to focus let alone workout or be productive if it’s lacking something so essential?! often we have to get up early for work, so sleeping in is rarely an option, but shifting your bedtime a bit earlier may be all it takes to make you feel refreshed when morning time comes. (plenty of sleep and still struggle to get out of bed? craig, my fiancé, swears by this trick. drink a glass of water upon waking. he says it clears the morning “fog”.)
