Finding Balance…

In your pursuit of happiness, pause to relax and be happy. Lord, slow me down just enough to enjoy all that You have given me.

As part of my recovery, I wake up and do daily readings, prayers and mediation. The two sentences above were in my readings this morning. I was just discussing with my husband last  night that we have both gotten so busy that we have not been spending quality time together like we had about 4 or 5 months ago.

I have several different things I’m involved in right now. Social media: Facebook, Twitter, and others; have become a big part of what I do as an ambassador for Oiselle, Fit Approach, FitFluential and ZOOMA. This means I can sit in front of my computer for upwards to 3-4 hours and then still continue to check my phone periodically throughout the day. It’s becoming more than just periodically.

I’ve come up with some things I hope will get life back in balance.

1. First and foremost, I will make a commitment to change.

2. Make a schedule and prioritize.

3. Plan date nights and other fun activities for hubby and I. 

4. Meditate more

I think this is a good start.

Are you having trouble finding balance in your life? What are you doing to change that?

  1. It’s crazy how plugged in we tend to be these days. It’s just all too easy. And it can be so fun, but then so time-consuming at the same time. It’s really hard to find balance I think. I’ve actually stopped blogging on the weekends. They’re too short as it is!
