I have been a mother for over eight years now. Having three little children definitely keeps me on my toes. My days are packed with a never-ending (and ever-growing) "to do" list and it seems that my calendar is always over-scheduled.
Being fit, active and living a healthy lifestyle is at the top of my priority list. I make sure that my children eat really well, freshly prepared meals, get plenty of sleep and that they get regular and consistent, daily active time. We strive to spend at least 20 minutes outside per day no matter what the weather. While I work so hard to make sure that my children grow up leading a healthy lifestyle, I feel like I have abandoned the focus on my own well-being.
Last month I made a commitment to myself to scrape together some time for me every.single.day. Yes, I know, I didn't think I could do it, didn't know where to begin, but by making a few small changes, I have come closer and closer to getting what I call, "back to me". I am feeling healthier, have more energy and others have sensed a more positive energy coming from me.
The benefits have crossed over to my work life as well. I am better focused, am working more efficiently and can more easily meet and exceed the goals set before me. How did I do this? It started with a change in wardrobe. I know that seems a bit unexpected, but jumping out of bed and putting on stylish, well-fitting and flattering activewear from Danskin Now has inspired me to start the day with time for me. You know the old adage, "dress for success", well it is working for me.
Having cute activewear from Danskin Now makes me feel good about myself. It is both comfortable and on-trend and most of all, it encourages me to take care of myself. The most surprising thing about this transition, is that the more I take time for me, the better I am able to care for my littles, my work responsibilities and all the other "must-dos". It is quite opposite of what I expected. Carving out just twenty minutes a day for me has actually somehow given me more time not less! and to pass along this early gift I've given myself, I'm gifting some new activewear pieces from Danskin Now to some very deserving mamas.
Every evening I lay out my new Danskin Now activewear and am encouraged each morning to continue on my journey to wellness and overall self-care. The brightly colored hoodies, modern fit and leggings in styles and prints that I want to wear make sticking to my new routine easy.
Whether you're looking for to get a head-start on those New Year's resolutions or looking to gift the perfect gift, head to Wal-Mart to see what Danskin Now has to offer you.
