Plan Your Day / Week the Night Before
Planning Can Help Prevent Chaos

Winding down & preparing for the next day or even for the next week ahead is vital when wanting to stay on track.  There is nothing worse than starting your Monday morning in a panic. Grab your calendar and take a glance at your week ahead.  You MUST make the time for YOU. Even if it is 10-15 minutes each day.  Find and make this time happen.   Journal, meditate, go on a short walk, Any of these will help to make the upcoming days and week flow with grace and ease.

Morning Water
Water is a Game Changer

Sounds boring and crazy….. right? Morning Water can change everything. Water is essential to flush out toxins in the body.   Drinking 16-20 ounces of water first thing in the morning (coffee or juice does not count) Water can help support the digestive system and will help you to not be dehydrated.  It helps to wake up the body and can help support healthy metabolism and energy.   (I prefer room temperature water)

Morning Breathing
Reduce Stress Before Your Day Starts
 Our breath is a gift.  When we feel stressed our body and our mind wants to quit.  Slow deep breathing is proven to help reduce stress and anxiety. This is a very important step.  (do not skip)   Starting each morning with a minimum of 3 minutes of slow deep inhalation and exhalation can help keep us on the right track.  (In the beginning, I would set a timer for 3 minutes.  Now it has becoming easy.)  Often when we are stressed we only do shallow breathing.     Even throughout your day when you find yourself stressed and taking shallow breaths….. take a few slow deep breaths.   Remember, it is a gift.

Don't Make It Complicated
Fitness….. why do we make it so complicated?   It shouldn’t be and it doesn’t have to be.   It is NOT a one size fits all.   As a gym owner and trainer my goal is to help people to STOP STARTING OVER! 
First… STOP comparing yourself to others and YOU DO YOU!   Just move.   Find something you enjoy doing and just move.  WALKING AND MOVEMENT are FREE.  Leisure walking helps release endorphins (feel good hormones) that can help reduce depression & anxiety.  Leisure Walking can help clear the mind and help us to feel refreshed.    

Stay on Track
Giving Up is NOT an Option
Keep your goals obtainable.   Set small goals. We must know our starting point and know where we want to go.  It is like setting a GPS before we go on a trip.   We must know our starting point before we can map out our destination.   Remember, the more detours we take the longer it will take to get to the final destination… our goal.  The end goal....Feeling better, having more energy and more fit.
JUST START.   Use the tips above to help you reduce stress and stay motivated and on track.  Stop comparing yourself to others. Just move, drink water, make better whole food choices…. Every single day!    You are worth it and you can do this.   Remember, being consistent is the KEY!
