I begin each morning with these 5 daily tasks to give me a great start to my day. I Love the beginning of the New Year and even the first of every new month and down to each new day. It is a fresh start.
I can assess in the evening what I want to do better every day. I have control over creating the best life possible for myself by my choices for creating healthy routines and improving on them when needed.
I am also a list person. What I know about myself is I am structured, and I like having a list to get through my day, week, month and year with goals and tasks.
5 Daily Tips to Start My Day
I generally always start my day doing the same thing. I love routines. In fact, when something gets in there and messes it up, it throws me in a tailspin until I stop and get myself back on track.
So creating a list or using my journal and habit tracker really helps me stay focused on what I want to get done and what I need to get done.
Daily Tips to Maintain a Healthy and Balanced Lifestyle
1. Listen to Something Positive (Podcast) or reading. I regularly listen to podcasts in my car and at the gym.
2. Drink a Smoothie or something that is filled with good vitamins and protein.
3. Take my Vitamins: I recently found some Adult gummies I like from Nature Made. They are called Energy B-12. Now a mom of 3 needs a lot of energy. These NatureMade® vitamins support cellular energy production in the body. They are also USP quality certified. I picked them up at Kroger, but you can find them in most grocery, Wal-Greens or Rite-Aids.
4. Take a few minutes to say a few words of encouragement to my family before they start their day. Sometimes the day goes so fast and we are so busy, I want to make sure I have a few moments with them and say something kind (see image below)
5. Go to the gym for 45 minutes. This was part of my new goals for the year. I am happy to say I am still going 4 -5 days during the week along with doing things outside of the gym like hiking to help keep my heart healthy and give me balance while relieving stress.
