I am absolutely blessed beyond measure to work with the lovely group of midwives. We had such a great time with each other and all of these beautiful babies. This has to be my favorite Andaluz photoshoots date. Thank you Heidi Hesler photography.

I regularly tell people “an active body is an active mind.” It should come as no surprise physical activity is the fourth primary food component – and the one I want to explore with you today.
Think about a typical scenario where you feel tired and weary. Do you often reach for junk food snacks to provide a quick energy boost? Although it may not seem like it, physical activity revs up the body and provides sustainable energy. Unlike junk food and the imminent energy crash it leads to, the effects of exercise last long after you stop activity.
TRY THIS EXERCISE
Make a point to schedule exercise on your calendar every week, if not every day. Start small and slowly increase the number of days you include movement.
Remember, you don’t have to engage in strenuous activities to see results. The goal is to find a type of exercise you enjoy, and then integrate it into your life on a regular basis.
If you’re already a work-out devotee, consider mixing up your routine to jumpstart your body:
- If you love to dance, take a class at a local gym or dance studio.
- If you’ve never done yoga, drop into a beginner class and see how it feels.
- If you like to jog in your neighborhood, try a new route today.
- If you want something more, try CrossFit. That’s what I do.
Whatever activity you choose, treat it like an important meeting on your calendar and stick to it. Your mind and body will thank you.
Next time you’re at the office, refresh your energy and combat stress by taking a break in the middle of the day. Instead of surfing the web or grabbing a snack from the vending machine, get away from your desk and take a 15 minute walk.
In order to keep our bodies happy and healthy, we need to get moving!
