Life is busy and in 2023, things don’t seem to be slowing down. If you’ve hit the ground running in the new year and are wondering how to fit in self-care and wellness, we have you covered. Along with taking advantage of convenient on-site fitness centers at our Milwaukee communities, there are many other steps you can take to make time for yourself.

Find Ways to Exercise That You Love

We have all heard advice regarding finding a workout and method of exercise that you love. The theory is, if you love what you are doing you are more likely to continue to want to participate in that type of workout or activity. This, of course, leads to seeing results that lead to a continuation of the workout program, and a positive cycle is established. Establishing a positive habit of exercising is an important aspect of conquering health and fitness. If you have a habit then you will be able to make it a priority and it will become entrenched in your everyday life. 

Plan Your Meals Out and Stock Healthy Food

Planning out your meals and having healthy foods to snack on and choose from, can make a tremendous difference in how you manage your health and your time. Scheduling a block of time to meal prep allows you more time during your busy week to continue with your activities and to-do list while still enabling you to have healthy foods to eat. Meal prepping also prevents you from making last-minute decisions, when you are hungry, for foods that are not optimal for your health and wellbeing.

Take Breaks Throughout the Day for Movement and Meditation

Taking short breaks, even just five minutes, to move around or to meditate can make a positive contribution to your health and fitness. Getting up from your desk to move around can help circulation, boost your mood, and help your muscles, even in short bursts of a few minutes at a time. Also, taking five to ten minutes to meditate helps lower stress, allow room for positive thoughts, and change your entire perspective in just a few minutes. Both movement and meditation, even done in short amounts periodically throughout the day, can have a positive effect on your health and well-being.


With just a few simple changes you can start to make your health and fitness a priority and help improve your overall well-being. Another helpful tip is to take advantage of our gym facilities in our luxury Milwaukee apartments and communities. Our beautiful fitness centers allow you to get a great workout in and still be back at your home in time to clean up and enjoy some wonderful winter events throughout Milwaukee.
