It’s no secret that a mom’s job is 24/7. She doesn’t get sick days, paid time off, or employee benefits. She has long, hard days, so it’s pretty obvious that she deserves some extra love on Mother’s Day. We’re hooking you up with tons of inspiration in this Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide, so you can give your mom the gift she really wants this year. We’ve got ideas for the active mom, the DIY mom, the mom who loves to cook (or wants to spend even less time in the kitchen!), the momtographer, and more. Here are our top picks!
Anywhere you look – online, on TV, in the store – there are things out there telling you how important it is to stay fit and healthy. However, it can be difficult to incorporate a daily fitness regimen into your routine, and it can be hard to workout with your kids around. But it is important as parents that we model this behavior to our children early on so that it is engrained in their lifestyle as they continue to grow. So how do we do both – model a healthy lifestyle while balancing our busy schedules?
Congratulations! Whether this is your first baby or 5th, as an active mom, you surely deserve and need your down time with your new baby. However, it’s no secret that you probably are longing and desiring to get back to your active lifestyle. One of the drawbacks new or veteran moms deal with is the restoration of your core – the belly. Your belly did an amazing job of holding your child within your womb, now it’s time to give it back some love. With a loving hug by Cinch Signature Tummy Wrap, it’s the perfect solution to help support and tone your belly after a natural or c-section birth!
You know you’ve had a good workout when the next day or two your muscles are sore. However, you may feel you’ve gone overboard if your muscles are so sore that you can barely walk or lift your arms. Sometimes all you need to do is a little bit of pre- and post-workout stretching to alleviate some of the muscle soreness you’re experiencing. After all, nothing is worse than having to skip a day of working out because you’re too sore to move.
Even the most avid fitness junkies will skip the stretching portion of a workout. To many, it feels like a waste of time – after you’ve put in an hour or two of hard work the last thing you want to do is sit on the floor and stretch! But research shows that it’s one of the most important elements of a person’s daily exercise regimen. Not only does it decrease the risk of injury, but it also helps muscles work more effectively by increasing blood flow and allowing for full range of motion. Luckily, there is now an amazing tool that many fitness advocates suggest using as part of your daily stretching routine to get the most out of your muscles and dramatically decrease soreness: the foam roller.
Society has twisted the idea of what a beautiful woman should look like within the past 20-30 years. The mainstream fashion industry has formed a view that extremely skinny girls with no meat on their bones are the “most attractive”. Understand that our purpose is not to run down women who are naturally built with a small frame and are naturally thin no matter what they eat; rather the purpose of this article is to shed light on the benefits of weightlifting both mentally, hormonally, and physically. Within the past decade, the fitness explosion has allowed many women to embrace the idea that beauty can be found in strength. This has also led to many women discovering that the statement that lifting weights makes you bulky is a complete myth.
With all the ever changing trends in exercise, it can be daunting to find a new fitness method for you, especially if you haven’t been exercising regularly in a long time. It can be intimidating to start from scratch when you want to transition to a more active and healthy lifestyle. You don’t want to pick something too intense. That can set you up for failure. You are also at risk of calling it quits if your workout is too easy or boring. You might have an exercise routine and feel like it is lacking something. If you are looking for a fitness routine that is just right, check out the new ZenFitness30 Method from Vionic Shoes!
