Did you know that September is Self-Improvement Month?
Stop laughing. I know…between the kids, your husband, the house and maybe even an outside-of-the-home job, how do you even begin to think about self-improvement? But healthy living is so important. We moms spend most of our time taking care of someone else, but the truth is, our health is just as important as our spouse’s and our children’s. We’ve got to take care of ourselves and take a moment to be healthy and happy!
Over the summer, I stopped exercising as much as I wanted to. Exercising has always been a priority for me, and although it has the physical benefits of keeping my weight down and keeping my heart healthy, it also keeps my stress level low. I go to Zumba classes and dance to the rhythms, not thinking about anything else, or I catch up on my primetime television shows on the elliptical. I follow up my workout with a hot shower, and I feel rejuvenated and relaxed. In September, I made a purposeful effort to go back to the gym at least three times a week, and it just feels So. Good.
But we all look at self-improvement differently. While some people try to exercise more, others turn to a healthier diet (something I’m always aspiring to). Still others meditate, spend more time with friends, have a date night with their spouse. And some consider more extreme measures, like plastic surgery.
Do you ever dream about having the results of plastic surgery, but without the invasiveness or recovery time? Have you heard of the Cool Sculpting Procedure? It’s a non-invasive, fat-reducing procedure that, within a few months, will eliminate the “stubborn fat” around your middle. This FDA cleared, one-hour procedure freezes the fat cells, leaving the healthy cells untouched, allowing the fat cells to eventually erase from your body. Amazing, right? CoolSculpting is currently running a Self-Improvement Instant Win Sweepstakes! Want to enter? Check out their Facebook page. You could have a chance to win a $500 American Express Gift Card if you tell them what you’re doing for self-improvement this month! Cool, right?
