Yoga for self-care

Yoga is great for self-care

If you’re not sure about what you could add to a simple self-care routine, yoga is a great choice.  It’s even something your kids can do with you!  It’s actually not that hard to get yourself into either.  Even while being easy on the body, it has benefits both physically and mentally.

If heavy exercise isn’t your thing…

Or you just can’t do many exercises because of some injuries, you may want to consider trying it.  Even if you can do other exercises, yoga has self-care benefits for all, including pain relief and memory enhancement!  Check out this infographic and post from Dr. Axe on the brain benefits of yoga.

Take a walk – 15 Days of Easy Self Care

Go for a walk!

Getting outside for a walk is extremely helpful as far as self-care goes.  It lowers your stress levels, gets you some fresh air, and helps your overall health in a ridiculous amount of ways!

If you can get out alone, great!  If not, bring the kids in a stroller, or walk circles around the playground while your older children play.  It’s pretty easy to keep an eye on them this way and it’s completely free.  There aren’t many good reasons not to try to make this a part of your day.

This podcast on all the benefits of simply taking a walk will blow your mind!

Feeling good with Fibromyalgia, it’s possible!

Struggling with feeling good with Fibromyalgia?

Or any other chronic disorder for that matter?  Again, I’m no doctor or certified anything, but as a woman with Fibromyalgia, I’m here to encourage you from a place of personal experience.  Before having kids, I also struggled with endometriosis.  You see, there’s been something between me and exercising most of my adult life… Yet, I’m excited to encourage you in knowing that feeling good with Fibromyalgia is completely possible!

If you’ve been around here for a bit then you’ve heard about my struggle.  What started with general aches and pains turned into full-fledged zombiehood.  The internist who finally diagnosed me recommended exercise for treatment Needless to say, I left the office somewhat furious and defeated.  It seemed impossible.  Soon I found out it was entirely possible.

Fitness for homeschool moms

So what do you do with all your free time as a homeschool mom?

Ha!  I know, I am laughing at that too.😉  I had no idea how large a chunk of my time homeschooling would eat up.  I pictured playing a few videos for my kids and then cutting them loose to scribble away on their papers while I knocked out dishes.  Right…  How do we fit in fitness for homeschool moms?!
Having fibromyalgia, means I’m in some major pain if I don’t exercise regularly.  When the reality of homeschool hit hard, it was the first thing to go.  That couldn’t last without me crumbling physically.  If you’ve homeschooled for any decent amount of time, I am sure you realize how hard it is to pour from an empty cup!
