The New Normal Part II- Keep Your Sanity… Over the last few days, I seem to be losing control of the life I had just a few short weeks ago! It reminds of a Woody Allen quote,
“If You Want To Make God Laugh, Tell Him Your Plans.”
God’s ideas are greater than the plans we make for ourselves. …I had lots of plans for the next month or so, but not any more. I have to stop worrying about what I’m missing, and what I can’t do, but rather realize, we have no control over this situation, so let’s make the best of it all together!!
Breaking!- Nordstrom just announced the closing of all its brick & mortar stores until at least the end of March- but they are offering 25% off site wide online! This is huge and unprecedented!
The New Normal Part II -Things To Do Each Day To Keep Your Sanity!!😷😱
Exercise Keeps Me Sane! Whether it was part of your daily routine before or not, start now! I’m sure you now have at least 30 extra minutes to spare! I have a treadmill in my basement, so that helps tremendously, but it’s also getting warmer out. Take advantage of the spring weather and enjoy a daily walk or jog.
DICKS Sporting Goods offers curb-side pick-up and online shopping.
Carbon 38 is on off my favorite online stores to get great workout wear.
I strongly believe as we age, we should not do the same exercise everyday. When I graduated from college, I went running everyday. If I did that now, I would be injured in a matter of days! So while we are house-bound, here is what I’m doing to continue a program that includes a wide variety of exercises.
1- Treadmill- jogging with 7-8 one minute sprints throughout.
2- Outdoor Walks-
- Elimination of bulk, creating beautiful shape and definition
- Specifics include more defined thighs, a higher butt, a stronger core
- Works with any body shape, any fitness level
- Low-impact anti-pulse training is easy on your joints
- Activation of hard-to-reach muscles
- A stronger body that helps you get more out of everyday life
- A noticeable boost to your overall health, wellbeing, and confidence
