Now that we're mostly settled in California, I thought I'd take some time to write about the ways I try to balance the stress of a major life change (like moving across the country) with my health and overall wellness. When life throws you curveballs it can be hard to keep up with your daily habits and routines, so I always try to focus on a few simple goals:
- Make time to move every day.
The first thing I did when I got to California was sign up for a month of barre classes--I used to go to barre six or seven days a week in Charlotte but then stopped going once my membership expired. I like that the workouts are similar no matter your location, so making time to work out (and doing it in a familiar way) has been really helpful, especially when I'm feeling overwhelmed or homesick. I always feel better when I make time to work out, and I'm always annoyed when I let myself forget that!
- If you can't make it to the gym, take a walk!
We were on the road for six and a half days, and we never drove less than 8 hours a day, so the last thing I wanted to do when I got to a quiet and cozy hotel room was work out. Bringing a dog with us on a cross-country road trip was great because we had to make time every day to take him on a walk, and once we made it to our new neighborhood he continued to push us to get out, get some exercise, and meet new people. We've already found a couple great trails/walking paths that I'm excited to add to our routine!
- Focus on your food.
I also think it's important to give yourself some grace when things are crazy and just do your best--for me that usually means focusing on my diet instead of activity level. If I can eat clean, whole foods most of the time and get lots of water, I obviously feel better than I do when I'm eating junk just because it's convenient.
- Supplement your diet.
This is where Florastor® Daily Probiotics comes in--it's a vegetarian, gluten-free probiotic that helps your body naturally absorb water and nutrients while strengthening your digestive balance and supporting a healthy immune system. It comes in a capsule that doesn't need to be refrigerated, so you can bring it with you everywhere, even on a cross-country road trip.
Thanks for reading! We've moved so much that I think it gets a little easier each time. What do you do to take control of your health and routines when things get hectic?
