Hi Everyone! It’s a new week which means it’s the PERFECT time for a FRESH START on a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE! Who’s with me?? Mondays set the tone for your entire week, so it’s a great time to mentally psych yourself up for it! This week’s tip is to “reach out and touch someone.”
Have you been meaning to call up an old friend, schedule a movie night with the girls or take your favorite aunt out, but have’t made the time? Just last night I called up my girlfriend who I haven’t talked to in a week just to check in and see how she’s doing. I also caught up with my Aunt and she was so happy which made me feel so good. It took just a few minutes to do it. She just turned 80, and it meant so much to me to hear her voice. My sisters and I keep up with each other every single day. It really helps me emotionally to know how they are doing. Without my mom around, they are my support system. Of course my husband and my kids are too, but there’s nothing like my sisters.
Research has shown that women who maintain close ties with other women enjoy such health benefits as lower blood pressure, increased immunity, and even longer life expectancy. Even a simple phone call will do the trick. Remember any time that you had a blah day and received a call from a girlfriend or your sister that cheered you up? Be that person to at least one of your girlfriends or someone in your family today — both of you will reap the benefits!
Love always from Your Personal Trainer,
