When I look back at this past year and think about all that I’ve accomplished, I feel confident about the direction I’m going in. But, around the time I set my intention for the new year and started examining areas of my life that needed improvement, I noticed living a healthier lifestyle always managed to get pushed to the bottom of my list of 2019 goals. Quite frankly, I’ve had enough of that and I am so excited to be teaming up with Chase Freedom Unlimited to share my Always Earning journey, and how small shifts in behavior are going to add up to big rewards for me.
My goal not only includes living a healthy lifestyle, it includes self-care too. I can’t forget that in the middle of the madness. It’s so easy to move at rapid speed and forget to do things that are good for you, like eating healthy or taking the time to be active, but it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Upping my self-care game when it comes to how I take care of my body from the inside out has been on my mind and the Chase Freedom Unlimited team sent me the best toolkit to give me a jumpstart.
My Always Earning box is packed with great items to keep handy. On the days that I work from home, I can easily roll out my yoga mat and follow the instructions on these yoga cards when I need a brain break, a shift in my mood, or when I’ve been sitting for hours and didn’t even notice. I’ve heard that when you hit a creative block, it’s good to stop and clear your mind. What better way than with yoga? It’ll help me focus my creative energy and keep my body healthy. Sometimes after a busy day, it’s hard to wind down. Dedicating some time before I go to bed to stretch and follow the movements on these cards will help me leave my work on my desk and focus on my mind and body before bedtime. If I want a more intense yoga workout, I can add in the resistance bands!
Having a nighttime routine is something that I lack, and while going through the motions of “putting myself to bed” may seem like I’m going back in time, our parents were on to something with the nightly checklist before crawling into bed. I’m not going to act like I’m going to stop falling asleep on the couch, but, I will be more cognizant of the time I am falling asleep and what I need to do beforehand so I can create an accurate timeline for when I should start the process. With this in mind, I’m excited to use the Jade roller once I’ve completed my nightly skincare routine. Did you know the roller helps relax the skin? The jade is supposed to help reduce puffiness and inflammation of the skin, so you know I’ll be using this every day now that it’s starting to heat up! Getting into a routine when it comes to ending my day is really going to get me on the right page for when I wake up in the morning and tackle the next day ahead.
As I go through the motions, whether it’s grocery shopping, a wellness membership fee, a getaway or booking that monthly massage when I can’t get away, getting the most out these choices is important to me. My Chase Freedom Unlimited card allows me to earn 1.5% cash back on every purchase so I can earn on every little step it takes me to live a healthier lifestyle. You know you’re a real adult when you care about credit card rewards. What’s fabulous about this cash back credit card is the double benefit! I’m making healthy choices and earning rewards while doing so. I’m excited to bring you on this journey and look forward to sharing the ways I’m always earning in the process.
