Many of you may wonder how the heck I balance my life. With a toddler in the house, working as a barista, taking care of a home, doing direct sales, blogging, and freelance writing, I’m not entirely sure how I do it. I’m not always as calm and collected as it may seem, but I do try. Sometimes things get out of hand and I am overwhelmed with all the things I do, but there are a few things I do to help balance everything.
Let’s go back to the article I wrote about relaxation. I wasn’t kidding when I talked about taking time for myself. It’s how I keep myself sane with so much happening in my life. I think everyone needs a little “me” time. Without it, I wouldn’t be able to do anything. It’s not always daily, weekly, or even monthly, but I do try to have “me” time once in a while. Sometimes I take a lavender bubble bath, other times I diffuse my orange and write for fun, not work, or read a good book. My chai adventures are also a form of relaxation for me.
Organization is key in my life. I wouldn’t know where to be, or even who to be, without my planner. I have a daily planner, just a plain one from Target, that I write and look at multiple times a day. I write down my daily chores, work schedule, and writing goals. I also like to include a fun quote once in a while to make it a little less daunting. Pick out a cute one and make sure to keep it in a place you look several times throughout the day! There’s no right or wrong way to plan.
I’m not kidding. Sometimes I just cry. It helps a lot. No, I’m not depressed or anything, but sometimes it’s nice to let everything out. Not like everyday, not that that’s bad, but every few weeks. It cleanses my soul a little every time. It clears my mind and helps me focus on the tasks ahead of me.
Without sleep, it’s hard to function. Sleeping might be the most important part of leading a busy life. Sometimes I feel like there’s no time for sleep, but I remind myself that if I don’t have enough good sleep, I won’t be functioning the best that I can, which is important for successfully doing the tasks I need to do on a daily basis. To ensure that I am sleeping to my best potential each night, I like to diffuse lavender and cedarwood, which knock me into a deep sleep in no time.
My life probably won’t always be this busy. I just remind myself why I do the things I do. I like having a clean home because it makes me feel good and I enjoy working because it helps provide an income for my family to eat and do fun things and I write to get myself out there and because I could go big in the the long run. Looking at the big picture helps me see that what I’m doing isn’t pointless and that it takes a little business to go far in life. I am young and I might as well do it while I still can.
While my life might be hectic, I love every second of it. You should be loving your life too, so if you’re not, take a look at what’s wrong and see which of these aspects could help you. Tell me in the comments how you make the best of your life!
