Tip #1: Use fitness as your source of energy
Many of us initially associate fitness with the idea of losing weight and getting in shape. VAHA founder Valerie tells us that fitness can be much more than that, especially for mums: “Being a mum is a 24-hour job. The best in the world, but it needs energy. I get my energy from exercise. 20 minutes of yoga with my VAHA in the morning, followed by alternating cardio, barre or strength training. That’s my source of energy.” Morning workouts provide Valerie with the clarity and strength she needs to perform her best as a mother of 3 and CEO of a young start-up. “If you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t take care of others!” she acknowledges.
A regular fitness routine helps you to be more present and support your family with more energy and joy. VAHA Chief Revenue Officer Maggie had a similar experience after the birth of her children: “Since I became a mother four years ago, my view of fitness has really changed. I used to work out to look good, and now I work out to feel good, to stay healthy, and to be mentally and physically ready for my family.” But working out offers Maggie another benefit: “My workout time with VAHA is one of the very rare “me” times that I reserve for myself every day, leaving me feeling fully recharged afterwards,” she notes. Best of all, there’s no need to travel long distances or arrange for a babysitter to replenish your energy reserves: With VAHA, you can give yourself exclusive me-time anytime you want, from the comfort of your own home.
