Trainer Tip Tuesday #8: Make time for yourself


As I am writing this post I am totally relaxed and stress free. Blogging is one of those things I choose to do on my free time when I want to relax and have some “ME TIME.”

Trainer Tip Tuesday #8: Make time for yourself

In order to live a healthy life sure you need to eat healthy and stay active, but I have come to realize that I need to eliminate all stress as well. Eating healthy and exercising makes me feel good but when I am stressed or anxious I tend to get run-down, I sleep less, and I end up getting sick.

I have found it is important to treat myself. Some days all I need is 10 minutes to flip through a magazine and clear my head.


Other days, taking some time out of my weekend to go to the nail salon and get a pedicure makes me feel great!


Believe it or not, reading educational fitness & health material and blogging always helps too! I zone out when I read because I am focusing incredibly hard on the information I am learning.


Of course my #1 way to eliminate stress is to exercise.


It does wonders for me :)


Especially when you have someone fun to work out with!!

 Even a short walk outside with my buddy Cooper can do the trick.


Of course hanging out with friends and going on a vacation with Marc is ideal but those aren’t always options!

SOO….The point of this point is to remind you to MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF TODAY! 

What are some ways you treat yourself?

How do you eliminate stress?

  1. I love working out to treat myself but unfortunately I’ve learned my body doesn’t find it as relaxing. So I’ve taken up hot yoga which is a new and fun way to treat myself. On top of pedicures when I find the time. That’s the best!

  2. I love treating myself to Ruby Tuesday’s salad bar. I know weird, but it’s just too good to pass up. Plus I get extra for lunch the following day. Hahah! Another way is of course just going for a nice long walk while studying fitness & health information.

    • I LOVE their salad bar too, it stinks though because the closest Ruby Tuesday’s is 25 minutes away :(

      Walking is always nice to clear the mind!
