Raise your hand if working out is on your 2021 to-do list? Mine too! It's not easy to get back into the swing of things (or start the swing of things for that matter). We need some HELP! I have found that having the perfect pre and post-workout routine is the way to go when it comes to actually getting the workout done.
The Perfect Pre-Workout Routine
1. Get Your Playlist Ready
Everyone gets motivated by different things. And even the same person can be in the mood for different playlists on any given day. If you don't have an audiobook or podcast that you're super into right now, definitely make sure to have two different playlists of music! One super upbeat and one more calming. For instance, if I'm doing a more intense workout, upbeat music would be my jam. But if you're into running or yoga, sometimes a super soothing playlist is just what you need.
2. doTERRA's Mito2Max Complex
We need all the energy!! As crazy busy women and moms, it's so easy to let the overwhelm and fatigue take over. This is why I seriously love Mito2Max from doTERRA SO MUCH. It really is a mama's best friend. Here are the main benefits to this amazing supplement:
Promotes efficient production of ATP in the mitochondria of cells* (basically...gives you more physical energy in non-scientific terms)
Enhances stamina and efficient use of oxygen*
Supports metabolic adaptation for diverse activities, from movie watching to marathon running*
Improves mental energy*
Not only will this help with getting the energy to work out, but it's a great source of natural energy for everyday life.
3. doTERRA's Breathe Essential Oil Blend
Opening up the airways is essential when it comes to getting ready for your workout. Not only will it give you a little energy boost, but it will help you to breathe easy before, during, and after your workout. One of the perks about Breathe is that it comes in so many forms. doTERRA offers the pure Breathe Essential Oil, a diluted roller ball version in Breathe Touch, and even a Breathe Stick (think vapor rub but NATURAL).
It's perfect for workouts and ,honestly, everyday life.
The Perfect Post-Workout Routine
1. Have a Protein Shake
Coming from the medical field, I know how important protein is...especially after a workout. They are the building blocks of muscles! And doTERRA has got you covered! They have a new nutrition line that included vanilla, chocolate, and vegan protein powder! YES! Here are the primary benefits of doTERRA's protein shakes:
Premium protein blends
All-natural flavors, sweetened with monk fruit and stevia
Well-balanced amino acids profile necessary to enhance energy and increase stamina*

So after your workout, enjoy a yummy protein shake to refuel your muscles and hopefully curb those sugar cravings!
