Self Care Sundays
The Antidote - Your Weekly Remedy
In a sudden twist of fate, I greet this Sunday without the nagging head pain I so rarely refer to as a hangover. And if, like me, you filled your weekend with more productive activities then you too can greet this Sunday with a small sense of accomplishment- even if that accomplishment was forgoing the after work happy hour on Friday. With all this renewed energy and vitality it seems only fitting that you put it to use elsewhere: bettering our body.
This Sunday is all about channeling the healthiest version of you- whether that means going for a brisk walk or something more challenging like a one hour workout! Whatever suits your body, and your mind, in feeling its best! Below, i’m going to add a few youtube videos of workouts from moderate to hard so you can start your day with some positive endorphins! To quote Elle Woods, “exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't shoot their husbands, they just don't."
Upon challenging yourself with a Sunday workout, you are then free to spend the rest of your day bettering your mind. A different type of workout, if you will, but one with equally positive benefits. For me, usually a guided meditation helps in keeping me centered and grounded.
When you’ve challenged both your body, and your mind, you are now free to explore your Sunday with a sense of clarity; a sense of pride- hey, you didn’t have the Sunday scaries, and believe me, that’s something to be proud of.
