For me balance has always been a challenge. I am not one to see the grey area; I am a black and white person all the way. I am either running full throttle or living on easy street - even if it is to my own detriment. Lately I have been thinking about how to maintain the balance. All of my responsibilities as a mother, wife, and business owner pull me in many directions. If I am not careful, things can get out of control.
Rather than continue at a frenetic pace I have decided to stave off the insanity by being proactive, restoring order and balance before it is too late. I have gotten into the habit of taking time for me. A self-imposed “time-out” curled up with a good book in the bed or my Jacuzzi tub. Lounging in the tub is especially nice, the water gently massaging my body always helps me to relax.
Relaxation is so important and I encourage you to take a “time-out” too. As the holidays approach I know many of us take on the task of having the perfect home, the perfect gifts, the perfect children. Despite having the knowledge that there is no such thing as perfection we sometimes try to attain it anyway. This holiday season take time for you, decide to put yourself first at least once a day.
I know this can be difficult, especially if you are a mother but this is so very important. 30 minutes, everyday, just for you. What will you do?
