By Anastasiya GoersWhat does a fitness outfit have to do with balanced living?
Health is one of the essential components of balanced living whether you put it at the top of your priority list or not. And an active lifestyle is one of the most practical ways to bring more balance into your life.
After years of searching for the ultimate life balance equation I realized that mindful fitness is my “secret” tool in finding inner peace and harmony. That’s the first thing that I recommend to anyone looking for life balance because it offers numerous benefits for mind, body and soul.
Whether you are already pretty active or are still struggling to find time and motivation for exercise I invite you to explore the benefits of an active lifestyle. And why not explore those benefits in style?
As I am writing this article I have two precious 5-months-old girls napping in their rocking chairs near me. My 5-year-old girls (also twins) are in kindergarten right now learning and exploring the world of science, math and reading. The picture that you see at the top of this article is the one of me wearing my favorite Ellie outfit and taken just a couple of weeks ago (4 months after my second set of twins was born.)
If I were looking for an excuse to forget about exercise then I would have had a mile-long list of those. Yes, being a mother of 4 kids definitely shifted my priorities and taught me to be more lenient in many areas. There were a lot of things that became unimportant to me after becoming a mother but a healthy lifestyle wasn’t one of them. The way I treat my body sets an example for my girls to follow. And of course, I want the very best for them!
As you might already know, Pilates is my workout of choice (and my occupation too) though I also enjoy running, walking, paddle boarding and playing outside with my kids. I practically live in exercise clothes because it’s the most comfortable thing for me to wear. Wearing a fitness outfit also makes it easy for me to fit in extra 5-10 minutes of exercise when I need a break from working behind a computer.
Ellie is my new favorite line of active-wear because
- it’s comfortable for a workout yet casual enough to run errands around town;
- looks good;
- made in the USA so I am supporting our economy;
- keeps its shape after many washing cycles;
- made from quality materials that don’t reap easily and offer good coverage during any move;
- has many multi-functional styles to choose from;
- affordably priced (especially if you get a monthly subscription.)
