The Best Self-Care Hack for Busy Moms!

We can’t pour from an empty cup, so we need to make sure that we are filling up ours first.

Simply put, the 20X3 Method is one hour of extreme focus on 3 things that will propel me forward. They are broken down into 20 minute increments.

  1. 20 minutes of mind work (reading, learning etc.)
  2. 20 minutes of body work (walking, yoga, stretching, working out etc.)
  3. 20 minutes of soul work (meditating, praying, journaling etc.)

Wellness as a lifestyle is a balanced approach to life.⠀

Everything is a choice⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • what we eat
  • what we think
  • what we buy
  • what we say
  • what we put on our bodies
Choosing wellness as a LIFESTYLE means actively pursuing the goal of being well in ALL aspects of life and having the 20X3 Method holds me accountable to myself.

This Year I’m Not Kidding Around…

The new year is here and I am inspired to make this the best year ever! There’s so many things I want to do and achieve this year. I’m not kidding around either. This year I’m taking my resolutions to the next level.

The first thing I’m going to do is lose some weight. Not just some weight but A LOT of weight. I’ve been wanting to lose 30 pounds since I had my kids and now’s the time. I’m going to make it a goal to lose all 30 pounds – THIS MONTH! That’s right. If I simply lose one pound a day I can lose all 30 pounds in the first month of the year. Then I can spend the rest of the year looking refreshingly hot and relaxing poolside in my new post-baby 2016 bikini body. Woohoo! Actually, there’s 31 days in January so let’s just raise the bar and make it 31 pounds! I’ll be even thinner than I hoped!

The next thing I want to do this year is start saving money. I’ve been inspired by the “52 Week Money Challenge” savings pyramid that my friends are sharing on Facebook. It says that if you start by saving $1 the first week, $2 the second week and then just increase your savings by a little each week you’ll have $1,378 saved by the end of year. Well that sounds amazing – but I really want to amp things up. Instead of saving $1 more each week I’m going to save $1,000 more each week! Yeah, that’s right. By the end of the year I’ll be saving $52,000 a week! That comes out to saving $1,378,000 in only one year. How awesome is that? I’ll be a millionaire by 2023!

Now that I have a plan for being thinner and richer, I really need to find a way to make the most of my days. To achieve that goal I’m going to set aside blocks of time for all the important things in life. Making them a clear priority with set time windows should help me get more done.

As the doctor always tell me, it’s important to get a good night’s rest. So I’m going to be sure to sleep at least 10 hours a night. Exercise is also important so I’m going to spend an hour on cardio and an hour on yoga each day. On top of that I want to meditate to help clear my mind and focus on my goals. I’m going to spend an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening meditating.
