Need a little pick-me-up? You don’t need to join a gym or wonder how you’re going to find the time to add fitness to your busy schedule. Whether you’re a new mom, mommy-to-be, or a veteran, these are just some quick and simple ways you can revive and reboot your energy and beat the fatigue.
Yoga exercises can be incorporated in your daily routine at a moment’s notice and are easier than you might think. Remember to breathe deeply while concentrating on a pose and transition nice and slow. This form of fitness is not intended to make you hit the showers post-workout. However, the intention is to reset your mind back to a calm and natural state so that you come out of it feeling more balanced and rejuvenated. It might even help to relieve your nursing back.

If you have older children, I recommend you purchase Yoga Pretzels card deck for 50 fun yoga activities for kids and grownups or find some free PDF printables available on the net. The detailed instructions are extremely helpful for making it fun and easy-to-follow for beginners. The exercises are great for collectively engaging the entire family in some stress-reducing yoga poses. Remember creativity is born when you release mental blocks. Here’s one more thing to consider, when stress goes away, creativity comes out to play. These activity cards are great at encouraging your child to participate in some liberating exercises with you. I love to use them with my students of all ages when I’m noticing they’re lacking in concentration and need to get more connected. Plus, there are partner and group options that make fitness fun and encourage cooperative play.
Yoga is great for the entire family because it not only provides us with a safe and effective routine, but it also help us strengthen our minds and bodies to help us cope with our busy lives.
If yoga’s not for you, you could set aside 10 minutes or so for stretches just to get your blood flowing.
Remember: Always check with your doctor before returning to your exercise routine.
