Thanks to Athletico for hosting this conversation.
As school years wind down and the hustle and bustle of summer pick-up, I talk to moms everywhere who find the stress to be a bit overwhelming in the months of May & June. No different myself, we spend much of our time in the car going from place to place or hours sitting in canvas chairs at baseball games with little to no time for ourselves. After running my half at the beginning of May, I lost some steam and my body ached for days.
Keeping our bodies healthy and in shape is just as important as the well-being of our family. We have to take the time to take care and pamper ourselves so that we can be in the best condition to help run our family!
Much to my surprise, I found a little something from Athletico in my mailbox – a 60 minute massage! I had no idea that the therapy chain also offered massages, much like you’d receive at a spa. The best part is that they could focus on the areas that were bothering me or specifically tense because they are trained to know the different parts of the body.
Staying healthy as moms is most important, starting with pregnancy. Athletico has some great tips for keeping your pregnancy fit! Don’t forget most of all to make time for you. Remember to build in time for you and your health, not just your baby. You’ll be tired but try to exercise, it not only helps you lose the baby weight, but enjoy a heightened energy level that improves your mood. Be sure to talk with your doctor or physical therapist before taking on something too challenging. Finally, try getting a massage at a nearby Athletico facility to work through any kinks that the strains of motherhood may cause.
