Phone a friend

I have a confession to make. I love being active, some of my favorite hobbies involve hiking and yoga, but when I get busy and stressed, those are the activities that tend to get abandoned first. It’s this ridiculous idea that if my to-do list is miles long, then I don’t have time to do things like workout. I know though that if I’m not taking care of myself, that to-do list isn’t going to be taken care of. So now, when I’m feeling too stressed or busy to workout, I schedule in my active time with friends and family because I’m less likely to cancel on them than on myself. An after-work yoga date with a co-worker, yoga and brunch at a fun juice bar with the girlfriends, a hike and HIIT workout with the boyfriend are some of my favorite ways to incorporate a little bit of physical activity and sanity back into my to-do list.
