7. How much sleep are you getting? Maybe you’re simply sleep deprived and your adrenals are fatigued because you’re drinking caffeine to pull from energy reserves your body doesn’t have. Find ways to get more sleep. I understand you’re busy and stressed and you still need to sleep. Make your self care a priority. Not sure how to do this? Let me know and I can write about it.
8. Build physical activity into your day.
Working out in the morning gives you energy, lifting weights revs your metabolism for 24 to 36 hour after, and we did not evolve to be as sedentary as we are. Replace your chair at work with an exercise ball. Park farther away so you have to walk the length of the parking lot. Take the stairs. We usually know we could be more active but don’t know how to put that knowledge into action. This is exactly what I help people do.
Part 5, tomorrow! Remember to take baby steps and reach out for support when you need it. I help my clients take their health goals one step at a time so that they can seamlessly integrate better habits over the long run. This isn’t a sprint-it’s a marathon and we take baby steps around here to create lasting lifestyle change!
