1. Eat Healthy
Eating well and nutritious food is very important for every person. In their jam-packed schedule, many mothers tend to ignore their meals and deprive their body of all the important nutrition. Do yourselves a favour and don’t treat your body so harshly. Make sure to have your breakfast daily and get into the habit of having a balanced diet. Include green vegetables, citrus fruits, milk and fruit juices. Eating nutritious food will keep your mind, body and your kids healthy. After all who is going to take care of your kids as efficiently as you, if you fall sick?
2. Exercise with your kids
If you are not able to find any time out of your tight schedule for working out, trying doing it with your kids. Remember children develop good habits and tend to adapt a lot from their parents and family household. If you develop the habit of eating nutritious food and exercising daily, your child is most likely to follow in your footsteps. So, try working out with your children. Exercise with them, wake up early and take them for jogging or cycling. Do a 30-minute workout. Play with them. This will not only help you to maintain a healthy body but also allow you to spend more time with your children. You can get to know them better, teach them new things while enjoying yourself and giving a good workout to your body.

Water helps to cool down your body, help moderate your body temperature and remove all kinds of harmful toxins and fluids from your body. Drinking plenty of water will keep you energised and motivated. You won’t get tired running after your kids all day! So, make sure to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Remember Healthy Mums raise Healthy kids!
5. Be Smart!
You have a busy schedule and only you can manage it well. You need to maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to be happy and to enjoy your time with your kids. Try to do mini workouts whenever you find time. Avoid watching TV as it is highly unproductive and leads to gain weight and bad eyesight, instead go for walks in a park, play with your kids. Walk instead of driving to that department store or school. Do not eat fast foods or drinks. Eat nutritious food, drink lots of water and do not skip meals. Plan your day and your meals. Strictly stick to your diet plans and be healthy, wealthy and wise!
