I have to tell you, tennis has always brought me luck. When I had my son, he brought me more joy & more luck. Kid's keep you laughing & running, so does tennis. Both are a wonderful gifts that I cherish. Being married & having a kid is how the idea for a tennis business was born, www.tennisbuddys.com, thanks to the love & support of my husband & son.
The awareness to keep up fitness, health & nutrition becomes so strong when you have a family.
Age is something that is mind over matter. If you don't mind, it don't matter. Staying busy with coaching tennis, playing tennis, son's interest in tennis & tournaments, gardening, cooking, fitness, school activities, family activities, painting & exploring & experimenting other hobbies keeps me going all the time and adds a lot of excitement in my life.
Always change your scenery: Go window shopping, visit a garden, pick up a new sport, change your furniture around, paint, spend time with your kid's outdoor, or by yourself outdoors, pickup a new fitness habit, cook...so much more you can dabble on. Keeps life fresh & exciting & your mind clear & healthy. Give yourself a break, indulge in junk food when the craving happens then bounce right back to your healthy habits. Allow yourself some "Me" time alone & your loved one's. Take a break from social media, turn it off to enjoy reality.
It is up to you to take care of yourself first, your health, how you feel & you will be a better person around your loved ones & others!! Live life to the fullest, it's a bumpy ride sometimes & full of challenges and not without mistakes, but it is worth living every moment to the fullest!!!
