On the Day
Lay off the snooze button because every time you hit the snooze your body is so confused with the resetting and cannot adjust! Plus when your alarm does go off just lay in bed and do some stretching. Help yourself wake up those tired muscles, increase your circulation and improve your flexibility in less than 5 minutes. Feels Oh So Good Too!
Remember to get your 7 to 9 hours of sleep! When you are well rested it makes it just a little easier to jump start your day. I like reading for about 30 minutes before bed. Find what works for you to get a good, quality rest!
Give yourself some inspiration and motivation to get up, get out there and grab life! Think about something that gives you a burst of energy! Go . . .

How do you get a jump on your day?
I usually jump start my day with a protein packed smoothie (low-fat, high fiber too)! Sometimes I am craving a strong cup of coffee and an egg breakfast. On the weekends I either hit the gym or hit the couch for a few hours of surfing. I am a morning person, but not before 6 am!
How do you keep going throughout the day?
Two words for me: Lunch Break! An hour to get away from my desk to recharge and reenergize. Sometimes I go for a walk outside and other times I like to enjoy a good read. Just depends on the type of day I am having!
How does exercise fit into your day during the week?
I prefer my sleep to exercise in the mornings, so good luck waking this sleeping bear to exercise in the A.M. I get a 2nd wind by 4 pm, so enjoy hitting the gym after work. I enjoy taking a brisk walk during my morning and afternoon breaks. The fresh air is so cleansing to your body, mind and spirit!
