10 Healthy Lifestyle Tips From Kristi Yamaguchi {Giveaway}

(Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. Tips are from Kristi Yamaguchi but other thoughts are my own.)

I was super excited to get a chance to attend a virtual webinar with Kristi Yamaguchi and Alpine Lace® Deli Cheese. I knew Kristi would have a ton of great tips for staying active and balanced. I love that she admitted that when she gets asked how she does it all, her answer is “I don’t”! Here are my favorite tips that Kristi had to share:

1) It’s all about prioritizing what’s important to you. Kristi said, “doing my best is better than doing it all”.

2) Take 30 minutes of “me” time each day to do something that makes you happy

3) Always buy some healthy snacks to eat on the go. Kristi suggests fresh fruit and crackers with cheese.

4) For those that sit for long periods of time (like those who work from home), Kristi says you should get up and stretch for about 5 minutes each hour. She says that is what they do in Japan.

5) Encourage your kids to go outside and play…and play with them! (Get off that bench mommas!)

6) Stay connected to friends. If you are hanging out with your girlfriends, get that next coffee chat or night out on the calendar before you all leave the table.

7) Invite friends to do something active because it will hold you accountable and you’ll have more fun!

8) Keep a daily journal to write your thoughts in

9) Have some healthy go-to dinner ingredients on hand. Kristi’s favorite is stir fry chicken with lots of her kid’s favorite veggies in it.

10) Get kids involved in exercise with you
