May is a busy month (aren't they all, right?!). With end of school year activities, graduations, etc., etc., etc., it can seem like you're going all the time! Even when we're not physically active, our brains keep going...so we're not getting rest on any level.
It may seem tough to find any time to take proper care of ourselves, but we must MAKE the time for self-care. If we don't, we're setting ourselves up for exhaustion, and even burnout and increased risk for serious illness.
Wouldn't it be nice to get a better handle on your health and well being so that you can EASE INTO SUMMER?
When you're feeling better, you make better decisions all the way around...and that leads to a healthy, happy lifestyle!
Self-care can come in baby steps. As someone who's been a family caregiver (while also being a news anchor, and a mom of five), I know this to be true. In fact, I've researched family caregiver issues and have written two books on the subject. I'm passionate about helping people take better care of themselves and those they love...and one of the best bits of research I've found is that MINUTES MAKE A DIFFERENCE in Self-Care. They really do!
Studies show that even severe chronic illness can be reduced and reversed when we get into a habit of just a few minutes a day for self-care.
Many people all around the world (we just welcomed Walk Instructors in Singapore and Belgium!) consider Walk 15® a vital part of their self care routine, and that makes sense---participating in our Walking programs gives you immediate benefits! Within seconds, those endorphins kick in, and you start to feel better...
and as you continue to Walk---the body continues to respond... studies show better blood pressure, improved heart health, lower weight and more--- all linked to Walking!
Our Walk 15® Instructors are busy people---and they aren't just functioning, they're FLOURISHING!
Listen to what they have to say...
"Walk 15® is part of my daily self-care regimen, because it's a non stressful way of taking care of myself. I play a Walk15 video during my two breaks at work and sometimes during lunch and I always feel rejuvenated!"
"Walk 15® is an integral part of my daily self care routine!! Whether I'm teaching a Walk Live class or popping in a Walk at Home® DVD, I know I'm doing something positive for my body and spirit!"❤👟
"Walk15® is definitely part of my self-care routine. For many women and men they believe that self care is self-ish. Self-care is not self-ish! It is what makes you feel good about yourself. Walk15® workouts are great grounding Group Exercises. They bring you together with people you enjoy being with for fun and fitness!!! Walk15® is the whole shebang!!!! For mind, body and spirit. It is a great mood lifter and you get that total body workout whether it's a 1,2,3, 4 or 5 mile WALK!!! Walking makes me happy and it feels GREAT!!!"
"Walk 15® is one of my favorite self care routines! I love that it gets me out of the house to be with people, and as someone who experiences mild depression now and then, that time with others is critical for my healthy mental & emotional state. There is STRENGTH in COMMUNITY, and Walk 15® is a great way to build community."
"Walk 15® Is definitely self care for me. Especially in May! I am a cake decorator and May is our Graduation season. It is a BUSY BUSY 3 weeks straight. So glad I have my classes to go lead after a stressful day at work. I hear the music and see my walkers it is like a instant release from the stress of the day. I may walk into class dead on my feet...but then I start the music, and my feet start to move and I feel awake and free from stress."
"WALK 15® or Walk at Home® are a non-negotiable part of my self care routine. WALK (and Zumba) fill my personal requirement to sweat for at least one hour everyday.. If I am not teaching them, I'm practicing them at home."
"It’s a must...as much a part of the routine as brushing my teeth and getting the kids off to school, going to work. It helps ME be more energetic and stronger and able to do what needs to be done! Now if we could just make more hours in a day... 😉"
"The group dynamic of Walk 15® is the key component of my daily self-care. It feeds my mind, body and soul and energizes every fiber of my being. Helping others get fit while having fun...priceless!"
So...what do you think? Wanna go for a WALK?
