Health Girl Summer

Per last weeks’ blog, we will continue a bit on mindset and flow into discussing healthy habits.  Let’s just jump right to it, shall we? 😉

If you follow any trends in any way (or even if you don’t, this all still applies), you’re familiar with the phrase of hot girl summer

As clever as I thought I was being coming up with this new title of, Healthy Girl Summer, it’s already a movement and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it!  So, this summer instead of focusing on having a Hot Girl Summer, let’s make it a Healthy Girl Summer.  What’s the difference you ask?  Well, let’s think of health being the step that requires healthy habits to be formed, while the hot part becomes a natural result of it all. Whether you are a woman or a man, we all seek to have the courage to build the habits that will ultimately allow us to become the best version of ourselves and how do you do this, you ask?  By prioritizing your health and sticking to habits that allow you to do so in categories such as physical and mental health. Allow me to list some small steps that you can take to accomplish it all,

  • Establish a Morning Routine:

It is of upmost importance that you set some time to flow into the day with some “me time,” right off the bat.  Waking up before everyone else isn’t fun and sure doesn’t even sound fun, but the time you get to sit with yourself, your cup of coffee and whatever else it is you enjoy, whether looking at cute puppy videos, reading a book or watching a motivational video to really get those motivation juices going, whatever it is that you do, you are allowing your soul, mind and spirit to feel joyous about starting the day. Big tip: don’t think about anything or anyone else until you have completed your routine, is that selfish? Absolutely NOT!  It is simply an act of self-love, and yes, you deserve it.

  • Hydrate:

With Water!  Before you even start daydreaming about your coffee or soda, chug a cup of water. This doesn’t mean you have to carry a liter of water around with you (although more power to you, my friend! You get after it if this is a goal of yours).  It means to simply make a conscious effort to pick water over anything else or at least do both.  Water is amazing for literally every part of you!

  • Go Outside:

Literally go somewhere and stare at a tree, that’s it.  Don’t overthink it.  When you need a break or feel yourself getting overwhelmed, stand up, put your shoes on, and walk out of your front door.  Nature is therapy, free therapy. If you don’t have time, make time, it takes 10 -30 minutes, everything else going on can wait for that small amount of time, trust. 

  • Lastly… you guessed it, create a night routine:

The key here is to not see this step as another thing to check off on your to-do list, this is a reward not another chore, you have earned the right to a little bit of self-care after showing up the way you did for the day. Sit in silence for 10 minutes, read five pages of a book, listen to a winding down video, or my personal favorite, ring a bell to let your brain know that the day is over and it is time to press pause on work and all the other aspects of our life’s, it is now time to rest!  Whatever works best for you!  It doesn’t have to be a 20-step process unless you want it to be.  Just one thing can cause waves in contributing to your relationship with sleep.  Many of us go to bed and fall asleep but we don’t actually rest, sleeping while still feeling anxious about what we’re going to face tomorrow.  Don’t worry about tomorrow and REST! Before bed, try this trick, tell yourself, “The day is over, I have done my best for today, now I get to rest.”  After that, let your body, mind and soul find peace and don’t allow the world to have access to you.

Let’s have a Healthy Girl Summer!
