My Top 10 Daily Must Haves!
Lets be honest, knowing how to get through each day can be extremely challenging. Here are 10 things I must have pretty much everyday to help me stay fit, healthy and at peace! 1. I must take baths! Soaking at least once a day helps me relax and find a little window of me time. I use bath salts, bubble bath and oils to help me recover from my workouts, keeps my skin smooth and most importantly it calms my nerves! 2. I must read! Starting each day reading something motivating or encouraging really helps me set the tone for that day. Something as simple as a two minute devotional from a book or an app gets the job done. 3. I must eat breakfast! Fueling my body in the morning is so essential for my day. Typically I eat some oatmeal and egg whites. Something very quick and simple so I'm not spending too much of my morning on a meal. 4. I must exercise! Please don't think I'm a workout junkie, I promise that's not the case lol. I am however addicted to endorphins. When you exercise, your body releases a chemical hormone called endorphins that trigger a positive feeling in the body. Its one of the best feelings in the world! Also, having a gym membership is so helpful for me. It gets me out of work-mode when I need to take a break even if I have the kids with me. They can go in the child center, and I can go and do my own thing. 5. I must drink water! Water has so many positive effects on our bodies. It helps me stay hydrated, keeps my bloating down, keeps the skin clear, flushes out impurities, and helps me stay full throughout the day. Start drinking water as soon as you wake up in the morning and watch it change your life. 6. I must have Dove soap! I use Dove soap on my face and body. It helps my skin feel clean without leaving it dry. Using the Dove white bar on my face has been my go to face wash for years. 7. I must have body oil! I actually prefer oil for my skin over lotion. Lotion has a lot of ingredients in it that I can do without. Natural oils are better for the skin and seems to keep my skin hydrated longer. 8. I must have my nails done! I am HUGE on this. I get my nails done once a week, sometimes twice a week just depending on what I have planned. Most of the time I am walking around in workout clothes, without makeup and my hair is probably sweated out. Its important to me to be consistent in having nice nails because it still represents that I care about my appearance. 9. I must have a variety of workout clothes! I don't like repeating my workout clothes often and wearing different clothes motivates me to want to go workout. This may sound a little extreme, but trust me it helps to find a cute workout outfit when you don't feel like going to the gym. 10. I must have my detox tea. My detox tea helps me out on so many levels. It keeps my waistline slim. Ill be honest, I don't eat healthy and only drink water all the time. When I go out to eat or want to indulge, I can count on my detox tea to flush it all out and keep my bloating down.
