Entrepreneurs, brace yourselves––the holidays are coming in hot! While this time is typically filled with cheer, it can still be stressful for many. But personal and professional productivity doesn’t have to be compromised. It’s important to be kind to yourself and prioritize your goals for a strong stride to the finish. Hello 2022!
Wellness entrepreneur Remi Ishizuka knows a thing or two about balance, having built her business and career from the foundation of one single habit. (She completely revolutionized her routine, and it all began with a simple smoothie bowl!) Now she’s a powerhouse entrepreneur and content creator serving effective and purposeful training for everyday life.
Remi’s a huge planner––so much so that starting November 1st, she writes down all her personal goals, business deadlines and travel plans through the end of the year. It’s only mid-November, but Remi’s game plan is ready and active! A huge part of this planning is intentionally setting aside time to take preventative measures during the hectic weeks leading up to the holidays. In addition to buying gifts, wrapping, and ordering holiday cards, it’s crucial to boost immunity for optimal balance. Staying hydrated, adding Nuun Immunity Tabs to your water, and maintaining a workout routine are just some of Remi’s habits for combating the holiday exhaustion.
Her routine may look different every day, but sustaining healthy practices are always a top priority. Here are Remi’s 3 tips for long lasting energy all season long:
Her routine may look different everyday, but sustaining healthy practices are always top priority. Here are Remi’s 3 tips for long lasting energy all season long:
Energy levels are always higher after a good workout. Before hopping into work Remi always moves her body for at least 30 minutes. HomeBodies, Remi’s award winning fitness program, is a great way to start! A subscription comes with new workouts every week, exclusive live classes, top notch coaching, a tight-knit community, and Remi as your accountability partner!
She also suggests N.E.A.T if you don’t have time for full movement on the mat. “N.E.A.T stands for non-exercise activity thermogenesis. AKA ways of moving your body and expending energy that isn’t sleeping, eating or working out. Think of your daily chores as movement or getting in some mobility while you’re sitting on the couch (or even dancing in your living room!). Getting your circulation going and blood pumping is so important for your daily health!”
TAKE PREVENTATIVE MEASURES
One way to do so is staying hydrated! A lot of our health issues (fatigue, stress, brain fog) can stem from simply not drinking enough water. Remi says, “Stress can deplete your energy and weaken your immune system, so take preventative measures now. If you have a hard time staying hydrated, drop in some Nuun Energy for a punch of energy.”
With ingredients like organic green tea, ginseng, B vitamins, and electrolytes, Nuun Energy is a clean alternative to the standard energy drink. It’s healthy and powerful formula aids in reducing fatigue and optimizes hydration, so you can finish those proposals and client meetings before family gatherings with a fueled mind and body. Plus, it can be used to supplement Vitamin D in the colder winter months.
Pro tip: Enjoy your water by drinking from a bottle you love.
MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF DAILY
Friends, family, and all the festive engagements that come with the Holiday season will be competing for your time, which can result in energy depletion. Remi confirms it’s so important to make time to care for yourself each day.
“Whether that’s listening to a podcast for 30 minutes while you load the dishwasher or taking a bath–– be sure to give yourself this time so you don’t go cray.”
