Often times as a busy mom, we find ourselves easily forgetting we are people too and that we need to take care of ourselves. Maybe we’ve let our hair care routine slip, or we’ve simply lessened how often we get in a satisfactory workout. You know, one that doesn’t involve chasing little ones as they giggle and screech or pushing an overflowing grocery cart through the store at breakneck speed. We have to remember to take care of ourselves, to allow ourselves the time and attention needed to be healthy.
As September is National Yoga Month, it’s the perfect opportunity to explore how and when we could fit yoga and a healthy lifestyle into our busy schedules. You don’t have to devote hours to practicing yoga or to treating yourself to delicious and healthy snacks!
When you do decide to start some kind of fitness routine, yoga or otherwise, you need to take care of your muscles with protein. Protein after any workout is essential to building muscle. Not just muscles though, quality protein like Ascent Protein — The Official Sponsor of Hard Work also helps build strong bones, nails, skin and hair. It’s vital and doesn’t have to be complicated. As a mom, you don’t have time for complicated. Protein powder single-serve packets are a great way to take it on the go, so if you head out for a family hike or a stroller fitness class, you can bring it with you.

Something many of us struggle with is finding time to read a book that doesn’t have pictures in it. Set aside even just ten minutes at bedtime to open a book (yes, a real book), and let your mind slip into another world. Love Warrior, a memoir by Glennon Doyle and selected an as Oprah Book Club Selection is a page-turning, powerful read to remind you that we are all born warriors: strong, powerful and brave.
A delicious way that you can take care of yourself on the inside, is by giving kombucha a try. Kombucha is a fermented tea with probiotics, organic acids and even organic caffeine. It’s a fantastic “pick me up” for the entire body. KeVita Master Brew Kombucha comes in 11 flavors, so no matter what you prefer, you can enjoy kombucha on the go while running errands or at home, holding the fort down.
Another way to take care of yourself can be as simple as switching out your sweetener for something non-GMO and organic. This is one of those swap outs that’s easy to implement with In The Raw®, especially if you are a frequent user of sugar packets and such. Whether you are drinking coffee, making homemade lemonade, or baking cookies, you can use some variation of In The Raw®.
Sometimes, taking care of yourself can be a very personal and intimate matter, but it’s not something to be ashamed of. As women, we have special needs and needed products from trusted brands.
