We work so hard. Watching kids, shopping plus housework, hitting work deadlines etc, we are so busy that we often forget about taking care of ourselves. What happens? We slowly begin to lose energy, gain weight, emotionally eat and feel useless.

The truth is, It’s not going to be better with your time. You have to take care of house, kids and work, so it’s a moment to learn how to take care of yourself. What does it mean? It’s time to plan ahead.

In order to stay healthy, fit and energetic all you have to do is  plan.

Why in the heck would you not take the stairs?! OK, if you carry million groceries oryou are ill, It’s OK, but other than that, there’s absolutely no excuse to take the escalator. When I was on vacation, I had a  50 pound suitcase and I  used the stairs. Since I I didn’t go for a gym, it was the great workout.
