Anyone else feel that things are moving super fast right now??
As life begins to resume at a normal pace, I find myself scrambling. Everything that used to be a normal part of our routine seems like a lot nowadays, and we haven’t even gone back to the full schedule. I don’t know how we used to do that!
Excluding things in the past year plus has taught me a lot: about myself, what’s really important, what we can omit from our schedules (and won’t matter), and that the little moments are the big moments.
(Having a new puppy was such an amazing boost for all of us!)
I found myself slowing down for the first time in a long time. It allowed me to focus on the present, absorbing everything around me. As someone who is always on the move and has a hard time relaxing, it was a welcome change. We found out how much we enjoyed hanging out at home together, sleeping in a tent on the weekends, making s’mores, spending afternoons at the pool, and watching the kids play in the backyard sprinklers.
When things start to wind down again, I want to keep some spontaneous adventures alive and keep some of the calm I found. I made an effort to make time and space for the things that I know make me feel good and energize me to take care of our family, so we can do all the things we need to do.
Here are some things that make a big difference:
Spending time outside in the sun every day. I try to go out for a walk at least once a day, and we also swim a lot. Over the past year, my horticultural status has skyrocketed. It was very interesting to grow different vegetables and green salad along with plants and flowers.
– Carve out free time in my schedule. The day is usually forbidden from the moment I wake up until I go to bed. It made a huge difference to have an empty hour on the schedule when things slipped. I also try to do at least one small thing that I enjoy every day, whether it’s coffee with a friend, bedtime reading, a shower, or a patio date with the pilot. It’s easy to combine the entire day into one long work and marathon routine, so if you add a break included, it makes all the difference.
Make nutrition and hydration a priority. I feel so much better when I take the time to prepare nutritious meals for myself and drink enough water. It’s really tempting to finish the girls’ breakfast pancakes and enjoy the day, but when I stop and make a full meal, I have more energy (and not feel hungry).
Taking supplements that make me feel good, including one of my favorites, Mitok. I’ve been a fan of MitoQ for over a year and have noticed a difference in my energy levels when it’s part of my routine.
What is MitoQ and how does it work?
– MitoQ is the world’s #1 antioxidant That goes into the mitochondria, which are the energy centers of our cells. Our mitochondria influence many different processes in the body, including digestion, hormones, the immune system, recovery, and much more. As we age, our mitochondria can wear down (causing signs of aging, decreased recovery and immunity) and MitoQ helps support our mitochondria from free radicals and damage. It can help our mitochondria over time to function more efficiently and also help reduce the typical signs of aging.
– MitoQ’s Super Ingredient Mitoquinol Mesylate (MitoQ for short), was created in the 1990s by professors from the University of Cambridge, England, and the University of Otago, New Zealand. She holds more than 60 patents globally and has been the subject of more than 500 independent research papers, including 9 clinical trials.
For my active friends out there, this amazing supplement can also help with performance and recovery gains.
