Creating Balance In My Life
I think everyone can relate to this statement: Life is hectic. I've really been feeling it lately though. We all wear many hats. Mother, wife, girlfriend, sister, daughter, friend, full-time worker just to name a few. And on top of that, we have goals, dreams, and obligations.
I've been finding it hard to create balance these past few weeks. If I go to yoga after work, I have no time to blog. If I food prep on the weekends I don't have time for yoga. If I clean my house, I have no time for anything haha! You get the point. There just isn't enough time in the day.
Last week I found myself saying I wanted to give up on my blog. I didn't mean it, but I was frustrated. I am not where I want to be health-wise, and I wondered how I can keep running a holistic blog like this. I also realized that I just can't do it all. Right now yoga and meal prepping are incredibly important to me. And I know I have been putting my blog on the back burner, but if I don't I will not be emotionally or physically fulfilled, and it will show up here.
I have decided to be patient with myself. That is all any of us can do for ourselves. If I am happy and healthy, this blog will be 100 times better than if I am depressed and stressed out. It's not easy finding balance in our lives when they demand so much of us. Sometimes all we can do is slow down, be mindful and realize that we can't do it all.
I need to focus on me and my health. I am on a health journey just like all of you. I became a health coach to help others reach their health goals, not realizing that I had so much work to do myself. I thought I would find all of the answers when I became a coach and it just so happens that I am still looking for the answers.
You guys know I struggle a lot with emotional eating, and it is still something I am working on. I've just accepted the fact that it takes time and it will all unfold when it's meant to. Sometimes I get very impatient and have to remember it's all part of the ride. So right now I am working on me and in the process I know I will be able to help you guys that much more.
Thanks for supporting me on my journey. I am always and forever here to support you on yours. Until next time, be well friends! Have a great Thanksgiving!
