Good morning, Mamma. Ready for a good day? Ready to move your body today!?
Exercise is energy and energy is the holy grail of working mommies.
Go for a run before the kids wake up. Take a brisk walk over the lunch hour at work. Take the stairs, park in the furthest spot from the door, stand at your desk while talking on the phone. Little things add up!
Take the kids for a walk when you get home. Some of our favorite memories are of walking around our local lake, one baby in the Baby Bjorn, one walking by my side, one in the little red wagon. Awesome memories and an awesome workout.
Exercise has been shown to elevate mood too, and for every woman who has ever tried to combine work and mother hood, that is a must have because these lives of ours can be crazy.
Exercise makes you smarter too! You literally grow more brain cells when you exercise. Really.
