The 7 Habits of Happy, Healthy Moms
Play: Be in the moment, enjoy your kids, listen to their laughter and soak it all in. Spending time laughing and playing with your children is a natural stimulation that will keep you feeling young and happy. Your kids will love it too.
Plan your meals: I love meal planning now. I know when I don’t plan my meals, I just randomly pick things up and never have the healthy choices that my family needs. So every Saturday I plan our meals for the week. As a busy mom, it is often hard to find the time to make a healthy meal, but if you are a mom with a plan great things get done.
Enjoy the outdoors: This is the perfect time to spend time outside. Take your kids for a walk, hike or bike ride. You can go swimming, explore your neighborhood, a nearby park, or anything else that gets you outside in the fresh spring air and keeps you moving. Fresh air and sunlight work wonders for your mood. Beach body here we come…
Spend time by yourself: Have a cup of tea/coffee, thinking, reading, yoga, meditation, practice mindfulness. A little R & R is so important. Even if it’s 10 minutes a day, having quiet time to just breath can refresh your mind. This time will also help relieve stress.
Eating Reduced-Calorie Healthy Whole Food: Choosing healthy, reduced-calorie, low-fat food makes your weight loss journey more successful.

Be You: That’s right… be yourself and love it. Remember that fun loving person your husband fell in love with. You’re still the same person only better 😉 Don’t compare yourself or what you have with others. Just try to be the best You that You can be.
Sleep: Pick an earlier bedtime for yourself and try to stick to it. You’ll feel better and have so much more energy. Getting good sleep is a huge part of living a healthy lifestyle.
