Our FIT4MOM theme for September is Back To School, Back To You. It seems like September is like the start of a new year for moms. You will undoubtedly need to create a new schedule for your family. You'll need to set times to get up, get fed, get homework done, etc. And hopefully, you will set time for you. We are all moms of different stages. Many of you don't even have kids in school yet. But no matter. You need to schedule some time for you.
Motivational speaker Tony Robbins once said,
“If you talk about it, it's a dream, if you envision it, it's possible, but if you schedule it, it's real.”
We want you to make mom first a reality by scheduling it. It's not selfish or a luxury. It's not decadent or impossible. Making time for mom is a gift to your family. You will be happier, healthier and less stressed. So, when can it happen?
- Can you wake up just a bit earlier?
- Can you workout when your kids are at school?
- Can you take an hour to yourself on weekends?
- Can you take a mommy time out for just 10 minutes before making dinner?
Take a moment right now. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Finish this sentence. What I really need now is ______________________. Ahhhh. You've dreamt it. It's now a possibility. Now schedule it.
Hear us loud and clear. YOU are important. YOU are worthy. YOU are deserving of time to take care of you. So, make sure that you schedule time for MOM on the new back to school calendar.
