Can we agree that the days really add up and run together in motherhood?
It’s a blur.
A lot of repetition for your brain. And a lot of repetition for your body.
Some seasons of motherhood lend themselves to more self-care time. Some don’t.
If you can identify which season you’re in — 10 minutes of yoga while your toddler naps? OR an hour at the gym while your teens are at soccer? — you can be more realistic and start taking REAL action toward your goals. No point shooting for an hour at the gym while you’re still in toddler nap jail.
Here’s the thing about those challenging seasons. Not moving AT ALL can actually increase your stress.
When we don’t get a lot of variety in our routines, we tend to experience more aches, pains and stiffness. And you know what helps with aches, tension and stiffness?
That’s right, friend. Moving your body.
Don’t panic. ? There are things you can do right within your existing schedule.
