Three tips for your viewers:
My three tips are based on the framework I use for my coaching practice. I hope you find them helpful. 

Meals: eat more greens is good advice, but not everyone likes salad. A trick I adapted from a Jamie Oliver recipe is to place a handful of field greens or arugula on the plate before serving a hot meal. The heat of the food will wilt the greens which is a softer texture and easier is easier to digest. They will get naturally mixed into the food so not everyone will notice. It's more convenient than having to make a separate salad - that's one of the reasons my spouse likes to add them!

Movement: our bodies need to move to fully function - from our blood to our bowels and all the systems in between. Schedule some movement into your day (literally! I book an appointment in my calendar every day) and have fun. Play fosters creativity and improvisation - ideal skills for a working Mom. Have your kids join you in a "shake your sillies out" session, or race to the bottom of the driveway to collect the garbage bins. Let them be your guide.

Mindset: no matter how busy we are, our bodies keep breathing. It takes just one breath to practice self-care. The concept is called a micro-mediation. It’s an amazing tool for those times when you don’t have time to stop. All it takes is one breath. Just two seconds.
