Guest Blogger Intro
A lot of bloggers use Amazon affiliate links to bring in extra income from their blog. I of course, haven’t taken that step yet, but I love supporting others who have affiliate links to different products.
I met Ashley, author of The Irish Twins Momma, in a blogger forum on Facebook and wanted to give her Amazon affiliate link some love since she said it needed some hits. After reading her blog and saw the millennial parenting content she was building, I reached out on Facebook messenger and asked her to be part of the Wellness Grind inaugural guest blog series as the “mommy blogger”.
There are many mommy bloggers out there, with lots of helpful tips, useful reads, and cute pins for Pinterest. It’s a huge niche. The advice is often helpful to those of us without kids as well. What better way to support a mommy-blogger’s wellness than to ask her to talk about her Wellness Grind? I reached out to Ashley and asked her how she keeps motivated to do her best for her sons, Jack Joseph and Luke John.
Besides being the The Irish Twins Momma, Ashley Marie, is also the Healthy Milennial Momma. She’s here to tell all you millennial moms how she keeps her family healthy and ready to learn!
Ashley’s Healthy Millennial Momma Wellness Recipe
The health and wellness of my family is a huge priority for me.Ashley Marie
This is a little summary of some of the activities we do to stay healthy and active as a family.
1. Family active time
2. Grow your own food
Every spring we start our garden with seeds of fresh fruits and vegetables to harvest throughout. This not only cuts down on food costs, but it helps to provide the necessary nutrients to my family without the use of chemicals.
3. Keep a healthy routine
A typical day for me starts with a Vega proteins & green shake with a multivitamin and fish oil. The boys and I go for a run almost every morning. The distance varies depending on our schedule for the day and the weather. However, we try to make it between 3 and 6 miles with sometimes a stop at a local park in between. We always do arts and crafts as they are 2 and 3-years-old.
During this time if they are painting or coloring, I can get in some stretches without being used as a jungle gym. We do workbooks to help prepare for the future. Then it is lunch, naptime, and outdoor time. During outdoor time we often ride bikes, go on a walk, play at the playground, and more. After dinner it is often bath and bed for the boys. I however must do my daily sit ups, planks, lunges, and squats before bed.
4. Honor the need for space for yourself
Saturday mornings are mommy time, my husband takes the boys and I often get to go on a long morning run. My run is often followed by a cheese and spinach omelet with uncured bacon.
The Millennial Healthy Momma- Keep running and pace yourself.
5. Let the world teach your children
Honestly the animals, clouds, plants, and more that we see when we run, or walk is more educational sometimes then what a TV can provide. Teaching your kids to grow their own foods will make them more appreciative of the farmers that work in the fields daily for us to put food on our table. There is so much to be grateful for and the first thing for me is my family’s health.
Recipe for wellness from the Millennial Healthy Mama:
- Eat Right – The USDA.gov offers some fun tools to get all ages involved with making healthy choices.
- Move – Activity has so many benefits to list, but the result of inactivity results in obesity, health complications, and more.
- Breathe- Controlling your stress by staying active and managing your day-to-day lifestyle can be tough. I use the Trello app that syncs to all my devices to stay on top of everything including my activities, goals, and accomplishments.
