Raquel talks to us about how 2019 is the year of self-care and we couldn’t agree more! Find out how Raquel plans to re-focus in 2019 and what her biggest accomplishment was in 2018!
What’s your advice for people looking to jumpstart their fitness/health routine in the new year?
If you are looking to jumpstart your fitness/health routine, grab a calendar and plan your workouts each week. Include one rest day and choose workouts that are motivating, fun, and empowering.
What is your New Year’s Resolution?
My new year’s resolution for 2019 is to add self-care into my daily routine. I am an Athlete and Fitness Instructor, but last year I was always sick, injured, or tired. My plan to combat that is to take an extra hour out of my day to either stretch, meditate, relax, nap, soak in a hot bath, or enjoy a bowl homemade soup over a Netflix show.
How do you plan on sticking to your resolutions?
Each week, I schedule my workouts, classes, and personal training clients on my iPhone calendar. Recently, I started scheduling my down time. It helps me stick to my resolution and gives me something to look forward to.
What was your biggest accomplishment in 2018?
Finishing my first screenplay was my biggest accomplishment for 2018. It taught me the discipline to plan and execute my ideas when it strikes, instead of waiting for the “perfect moment”.
