Tips for Making Your Wellness a Priority Each Day

For busy moms like me, the back-to-school time of year can be very challenging to make your health a priority. We get so caught up with the crazy schedules of our entire family that our personal wellness often comes last. How can we make sure that our health is a priority each day? Here are some tips based on the things that are helping me reach my goals.

Tips for Making Your Wellness a Priority Each Day

Make a commitment

While fall is a busy time, it is also a great time to make a true commitment to your health and wellness. As the kids get back to school, give yourself health and fitness assignments like the way they might have a school assignment. Even a brisk walk for 20 minutes can make such a difference for your healthy and energy each day.

Follow the 80/20 Rule

The 80/20 mindset is helpful when figuring out what kind wiggle room you will allow yourself when it comes to your food and fitness. If you are eating well about 80% of the time, you can be flexible 20% of the time. If you exercise most of the week, don’t beat yourself up about missing a workout or two. It’s all about balance.

Prioritize Your Day

Each morning, take some time to set your priorities for the day. Figure out what matters most and what can wait. This will help you focus on your top priorities (which should include YOU). Keep a written list (I put mine on the fridge) to serve as a reminder and to keep me on track.

Find a Buddy

Having a buddy is a proven way to reach your goals. It helps keep both parties on track. We are much less likely to skip out on a friend than we are on ourselves. It’s nice to have someone else hold you accountable. It’s also a great way to combine social time with fitness time!

Keep a Journal

Did you know that keeping a journal is a great way to stay on track with your health and fitness. Spend some time at the end of the day to focus on what went well and what you’d like to set for priorities the next day.

Sneak in “Fitness”

There are lots of ways to sneak in some extra fitness time. Skip the elevator and take the stairs. Grab the kids and play tag. Instead of a brunch date, take a bike ride and pack a healthy picnic. Bring a frisbee to the park. The opportunities are endless!

I think it can sometimes be hard to fit everything in, its easy to get burnt out trying to get everything to fit! But you're right its all about what your priorities are and sometimes you just need to sit down and write doing a "to do" list

I do really believe that the ultimate drive towards consistent wellness is self-motivation. You need to motivate yourself to make your body move and groove. My most favorite among your tips is finding a buddy! At first I did not believe that people can really socialize and build good physique at the same time. That was pretty amazing!
