No Science Sunday today. Just some good ole fashioned motivation!
Being inside for so long begins to take a toll on the body after a while.
At first, you feel motivated. You decide you’re going to stick to your schedule. You’ll get dressed every day. You’ll do everything you use to do except leave the house.
Two full months +some have gone by for me since having to stay home and I’ve mostly stuck to my schedule. I use to wake up between 5:15 & 6am. It truly depended on how much sleep I got with the baby the night before or if my insomnia kicked in after waking up in the middle of the night to feed her. My middle of the night insomnia’s gotten worse though so I try to just wake up before or by 7am.
All that to say, I feel my energy levels slipping.
So, here are a few things I know I can do to help with those energy levels and I thought I’d share what works for me. Maybe you’ll like them all but I’m hoping for at least 1 or 2.
First, I have a dance party with my baby girl. It’s even easier to do right now because you don’t have all your co-workers watching you dance it out. If you’re like me, you don’t want many people seeing those
slick sick moves.
Second, I go for a walk. Getting in just a few minutes of walking definitely helps to walk that body mind up.
Third, if you don’t have time for a walk then just step outside! Even that little bit of time outdoors help wake the body and mind up
Fourth, drink your water!
By now, most people are going back to work and the good news is… These still work in a work environment!
Even the dancing; it’s just your co-workers may look at you funny but who cares?!
