I always said to myself when I have children I am going to show them the world! In todays economy they have become adapted to seeing the world through a phone screen, computer, or television. I don’t want this habit to become the norm for my kids. I want to raise Aspen showing her the wonders this world has to offer. I want to teach her through sight, touch, and smell. I want her to grow up with an enormous desire to explore and see new things with her own two eyes, not a phone screen. Don’t get me wrong she loves her morning cartoons with Mickey Mouse Club and Puppy Pals, what kids don’t? We allow this for only a few more short days until we turn off our cable. Not because we can’t afford this luxury, but because we would rather use that money to travel more, take more hikes, camp, do things with Aspen that allow her to be apart of nature. Don’t worry y’all she still has her movies to watch every once in awhile.
We are always looking for the next best thing to help us live a healthier happier lifestyle. We all want to have endless amounts of energy, a relatively fit toned physique, and a natural craving for the “healthy foods”. Being 4 months post partum I can assure you I was one of those people looking for the best way to live a healthier lifestyle, so I could keep up my energy with caring for a newborn. I feel like I have a good sense with what I need to do and what I need to be eating, but after having Aspen my motivation and drive was wayyyy down.
It wasn’t until I sat down one day and really starting to think back to when my health was at its best. I wrote down these tips and tricks in hopes that they will help you as well. Whether you are postpartum, a parent, student, really any one can incorporate these tips into your daily life to kick start your new healthy lifestyle.
