Our bodies are amazing. They're the unsung heroes in our everyday lives that do so much for us. They can birth children, move mountains, and even master the everyday struggle of getting out of a cozy, warm bed in the morning.
And yet, our body is rarely noticed—at least not until it's not functioning properly or until it becomes the latest victim of negative talk.
Let's get you back to loving that amazing, strong, imperfectly perfect body of yours. Here's 4 essential tips.
Tip #1: RECOVERY
Recovery after a workout is almost as important as the workout itself. Make sure you're replacing the calories you burned with healthy, restoring calories to build muscle.
Protein isn't just for bodybuilders. It gives your body a quick shot of amino acids to jump-start recovery. Our MCTbars have 11 grams of protein and are full of healthy fats and collagen to support joint health.
It's also important to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Water flushes out any toxins from the body and also gives you dewy, glowy skin. You only get one body—make sure you're lovin on it daily.
Tip #2: REST
Getting enough sleep can affect your mental health, your physical health, and your quality of life. Ever notice how things turn into a cluster of dysfunction when you're tired? (🧟)
The way you feel while you're awake depends in part on what happens while you're sleeping. During sleep, your body is working to support healing, healthy brain function, and memory.
Did you know that sleep also helps you maintain a healthy balance of the hormones that make you feel hungry or full? When you're well-rested you're less likely to feel as hungry during the day. So snooze if you want to lose!
Tip #3: REVITALIZE
Now this decadent pancake photo doesn't LOOK like revitalization, but it is. Revitalization starts with what you put into your body. Just because it's good for you doesn't mean it has to taste bad.
Take these fluffy, delicious pancakes from the Sauced Chef—they're low in sugar and carbs, are boosted with energy from our MCT Oil, and they still keep you in ketosis. 🤯Here's the recipe to get you cookin, good lookin.
Tip #4: RECHARGE
Do at least one teeny tiny thing for yourself each day. Whether it's active like a walk or a workout or it's more relaxing like a creative expression project or meditation, you must do everything in your power to DO it!
Set aside 10 minutes— book time with yourself on your calendar if you have to (been there)!
Whatever you do, just carve out that space for YOU. You can't take care of others until you take care of yourself first.
