I’ve teamed up with Gap Factory to share my everyday stay-fit routine with you.
Staying fit has always been a combination of 3 things for me: A healthy mind, body and soul. I find that if skip a week of workouts, I begin to feel tired earlier in the days. When I’m tired I start to drink too much coffee or snack too much, which affects my sleep. When I lose sleep I start to get irritable and bummed about work. It’s a cycle which each component depending on the other, so I try and maintain healthy habits that prepare me for success each week… and they aren’t super time consuming or expensive, which is a plus!
I’m wearing my favorite Gap Factory finds, including this “Mind Over Matter” Raglan Hoodie. Shop more hoodies and similar tops HERE. I love the clean, modern design and the motivational suggestion. My white puffer vest is sold out, but they continually restock similar options. You can shop more Gapfit Tops HERE and Gapfit bottoms HERE.
My ideal physical workout includes a 2-miles run on the trails near my house and then some sit-ups and push-ups at home. I love the fresh air and find the movement invigorating. There’s something almost meditative about spending that quiet time alone, taking in the nature around me and connecting with the earth each mile… If I’m crazy busy, I will compromise by taking a walk with my dogs. (Anywhere between 5-35 minutes depending on my schedule).
These shots against the brick walls are at one of my favorite spots to take the dogs and my daughter. It has a great view and my daughter says it looks like a castle!
While I consider running a form of mediation, I also like to meditate or do short yoga sessions at home that allow my mind to relax. I’m sort of type-A so unless I schedule it in, my mind will continue to turn, turn, turn! I even listen to some meditation clips at night to help me relax for a good nights sleep. Then I’m prepared and energized for the next day!
Hope you enjoyed this post- definitely let me know how YOU stay fit through the winter!
