Podcast 235 – The Importance Of Putting Yourself First


senior fitness with meredith

Living an active and busy life can help in many ways as we age. Staying social, spending time with family and participating in community gatherings are a great way to stay engaged and nurture your mind and emotional well being.

But as schedules fill up, it can be easy to forget about giving time back to yourself which is just as important as staying “busy”. Not carving out enough time during the week to spend on your mental, emotional and physical well being can lead to burnout and a shorter active life.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

1). Why we felt it was important to dedicate an episode to this topic and Meredith’s personal story from one of our subscribers that inspired this discussion.

2). How neglecting your own well being and spreading yourself thin can affect people of all ages, not just older individuals.

3). How regular exercise can greatly help curb levels of stress which can come from being spread to thin with activities and responsibilities.

4). Why setting boundaries is helpful in achieving a schedule that gives time back to you.

5). Some great examples of activities you can do that will help recharge your mental, physical and emotional well being now and later on in life.


We hope the information we’ve shared in this episode helps you or someone you know with scheduling time to give back to yourself especially during a busy and active lifestyle. It is easy to forget how important this is especially as we age. Staying balanced with family, community and activities is best served hand in hand with time focused on your own well being physically, mentally and emotionally.
