Stay Active and Healthy: Workout Tips for Busy Moms

Stay Active and Healthy: Workout Tips for Busy Moms

In my 20s, chronic pain made me feel like I was a young woman trapped in an old person’s body. What pulled me out of that state, healed me, and uplifted my mental health was the power of movement.

Now, as a forty-something mother of three and a bustling business owner, I know firsthand the struggle of squeezing in physical activity amidst the whirlwind of responsibilities. Yet, my commitment has always stood strong: Exercise is non-negotiable for a vibrant life. That’s why I’ve developed strategies that have allowed me to seamlessly integrate movement into my busy daily routine – even if it's just for a few minutes.

In this blog, I'm excited to share my tried-and-tested workout tips for busy moms like you to stay active and healthy. Let’s jump right in.

Turn Your Life Into a Jungle Gym

Kicking off with my personal favorite, life is a jungle gym. This means any spot outdoors can be your chance to stretch, and you can turn ordinary moments into chances for vitality and activity. 

Not sure how to seize these opportunities? Here's something you can try:


Alternatively, you can delve into desk exercises if you're working late into the night, incorporate fascia movements while brewing your morning coffee, engage in dynamic stretches while waiting for your kids at their piano class, or practice easy spinal twists while standing in the supermarket line.

Embrace Short and Effective Workouts

It’s time to step away from the mindset that more exercise is better, and embrace the value of efficient and quick workouts for busy moms.

Fascia, for instance, gives us new alternative options and solutions for sneaking movement into our lives. It thrives on small, frequent doses throughout the day over the traditional approach of dedicating large chunks of time to workouts. Training your fascia can be as effortless as swinging your arms around and doing some doorway stretches.

All you have to do is to get these three motions into your daily life: traction, rotation, and compression. Once you’ve incorporated them, you can heal, condition, and revitalize your entire body.

Get Your Kids Moving With You

Experts highlight that children who get about 60 minutes of daily movement can boost physical and mental health and academic performance. But according to the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), less than 24% of children between the ages of six and seventeen in the US participate in 60 minutes of physical activity every day. 

So why not use your workouts as an opportunity to set a healthy example for your children?

Consider creating a fitness challenge or goal that the whole family can work towards together. Whether it's completing a certain number of steps per day, mastering a new yoga pose, or participating in a local fun run, striving toward shared objectives can inspire and benefit everyone involved.

Have a baby in the mix? No worries. Lay down a soft mat or blanket and position your baby beside you as you engage in gentle floor exercises. Incorporate movements like gentle rolling and stretching, encouraging your little one to explore movement alongside you.

The Bonus Tip

Focus on what makes you feel good rather than just the number on the scale. Are you sleeping better at night? Did you say goodbye to that nagging shoulder pain? Do you feel more energetic and alive? Celebrate these moments – they're proof that you're on the path to reclaiming your vitality and well-being.
