I was curious as to what dads believe is a healthy and happy family.

So many similar answers and their stories were powerful and touching.

The Power of Happiness: Know when you got it good

 

Today’s show was impromptu and so are the notes:

 

Quick takeaways:

 

Really try to understand when you have so many good things in your life.

 

Understand how to appreciate them.

 

Learn to embrace the good things and take on new perspectives.

 

Give yourself a chance to start over if needed to truly find what you want, what makes you…YOU

Welcome to Self-Care Saturday Girls!

 

This week’s self-care tip is to get off the phone, computer, and tablet and do a digital detox!

 

Yes I know this is hard but think about how it interferes with your everyday life and how much time you could get back to yourself.

 

I want you to do this one task this weekend for 6 hours or more…Turn off the phone, put it away and notice how you feel.

 

Do you feel good, anxious, or like you just can’t do without it?  Maybe you have an addiction?  It may be true.

 

Too many of us are addicted and are losing precious time we could be with our kids, family, and friends.

 

Just try it!

8+ Ways to Keep Fit while with your kids:

 

Ok… I’m going to keep this simple for ya’ll!

 

Lists I feel are the best ways for you to read and scan, since we don’t  have too uch time to read much these days…

 

So here are my NO EXCUSE ways to keep fit while with the kiddos:

 

1.   Walking…strap that kid into the stroller and walk in the morning, while he is napping, or after dinner as a family.

2.   Dance around the house like a fool and have fun!

3.   Get dirty in the garden while kids get dirty playing in the yard.

4.   Go for short sprints, or race with your kids

5.   Set up the front lawn with games

6.   Enter a walk or run for charity as a family

 

At the park:

 

7.   Squat while swinging you child

8.   Step ups on a bench or on the playground

9.   Use the monkey bars

10.Walk the perimeter while your kid plays

11. Lunges in place or walking

12. Bring a jump rope

13. Pushups (on a bench or a bar)

14.Bring a ball and start a game of kick ball

 

Lastly:

 

15. Indoor/At home workouts- beachbody videos or other videos.

Why am I loving at home workouts?

 

1.   No need to travel to a gym- save more time

2.   A gym schedule doesn’t dictate your routine

3.   No gym member ship needed

4.   You don’t need to care about how you look

5.   The germs in your house are your own, no sweaty equipment

6.   After your workout you can go right to your own kitchen and make a shake- shakeology is yummy!

7.   You can grunt, or yell or scream,  no one but you is there

8.   You can roll right out of bed and hit play and get to it!

 

So there you go!  I think I gave you enough reasons why you should workout at home!

 

Check out Beachbody here if you want more info and I can get you going and coach you through it!

 

This month is an awesome sale with the 21 Day Fix!!

 

Thank you so much for your time today and I hope you got some great inspiration and motivation to get your tush moving!!

 

Please o please take the time to rate and review the show here, I would love you even more.

Are you no longer your own person? Do you allow yourself to be consumed by your child?  Have you lost your identity and you don’t know who you are anymore?

 

You are not alone!  I get it!  Been there done that momma.

 

We are not just moms, we are women too…

 

Try to stay away from using your baby’s name in social media or in your email address.  Remain yourself.  Don’t fall into the category of the mom who stops taking care of herself..

Listen back to the first episode where I stress about what this podcast is all about.  Being yourself, having wants, needs, and desires.

 

Do you want to be yourself?  Its okay to consume yourself with your baby, we are moms and this is what we do but don’t forget who you are.

 

What are your want, needs, and desires?

 

Who are you?

 

Lead by example for your kids so they too grow up to be a strong confident individual who also takes care of them selves…
