Get enough sleep.
Fuel your body with proper nutrition.
Chances are, you put great effort into ensuring your kids have balanced, nutritious meals and give your best at work, but often forget about yourself. Remember the basics: eat five to six servings of fruits and vegetables each day, choose whole grains and lean protein and dairy, and drink lots of water.
Move your body. Every day.
A key to staying energized is getting your body up and moving every day, ideally for 30 to 60 minutes. Walk, run, bike, garden, practice yoga, but the most important thing is that you find something you enjoy so you can stick with it. And don’t worry about doing it all at once. If necessary, break up your exercise into 10-minute chunks of time. You’ll still get the benefit.
Find your battery charger.
If you’re having a hard time carving out time for yourself to recharge, start small. Wake up five minutes earlier and meditate. Pause between meetings and spend two minutes breathing and focusing on what’s going on inside your body.
And remember … taking care of yourself is the most unselfish act.
