Being the CEO of a company, mother to a 10-year-old I have a schedule that requires me to travel almost 3 days a week and come back home to my daughter every night. Amidst the crazy schedule I am left with barely any time to take care of my health.
As I enter my late 30s, I have now started making extra effort to take good care. I realized little things I do make a huge difference. A few simple things I started doing helped me focus on my work better and wear multiple hats. I reveal my secrets to you:
I make sure I never miss my yoga session each morning. The first thing I do each morning is – 10 minutes of yoga. Yes, it is that simple, all you have to do is invest 10 minutes in yourself everyday.
Instead of taking the elevator, I opt to take climb the stairs whenever and wherever I can. Climbing stairs is low impact so it’s relatively easy on your feet, ankles, knees and hips.
Snack on yogurt and other calcium rich food
I included yogurt in my diet. No meal goes without yogurt. But calcium isn’t the end-all, be-all bone loss cure. The key might be to help the body absorb calcium by pairing calcium-rich foods with those high in vitamin D.
Adding lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, omega 3 acid rich food including salmon, flaxseeds, walnuts and shrimps has helped in a great way.
Soaking the sun
Soak up sun every day, go outside. It is the best to keep your bones strong, a walk post lunch is always good. It also gives you the much needed break. I love every bit of my afternoon walk post lunch.
Start taking care of yourself, before it gets too late.
