Tips to Stay Balanced

Tips to Stay Balanced

Hi all!

Ever feel overwhelmed, stressed, or just plain tired during the week? [I do! I do!]

Here are 3 tips to stay mentally balanced on a daily basis:

  1. Enjoy a quiet moment - Set aside a few moments in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee. Catch up on the news or just sit with a puppy in your lap...and breathe. Mornings are my favorite time to plan for the day, and taking a few moments early on to relax helps the rest of the day feel less rushed and chaotic. If you're not a morning person, find some time before bed to read the next chapter in a book or enjoy a calming cup of tea.
  2. Take a walk - Whether you’re at work or at home, taking a walk [or just stepping away] helps give your mind a break and a chance for your body to stretch. Regular movement during the day is good for your body and helps clear up the mind too.
  3. Dis-Connect - Make it a goal to put down your phone and simply dis-connect from the screen each day. Enjoy dinner with a loved one, play a few rounds of fetch with that ever hyper puppy, or listen to your favorite song. A break from the digital world can help you remain rooted in the physical world.

How do you find balance during the buzz of the day? I'd love to hear about your routine!
