I have a “coffee talk” for you today. Actually, it’s one I’ve been pondering since last Friday. This is when FITFLUENTIAL posted about achieving balance during the holidays. They focused on eating well, exercise, rest, and enjoyment. All play a key role in Holiday Balance, right?! RIGHT!
The question that then came up was “how do you achieve balance during the Holidays? And what are some tips?”
All weekend I thought about it because let’s face it, I ‘m struggling. Heck I am still trying to find balance since moving to New Zealand two weeks ago, yet alone now during the Holidays. ha-ha. So I called about some FB friends to share some ideas and boy am I glad I did. Their answers made me feel some what SANE.
Lindsay Cotter trying to think about Balance this week. I think everyone is so different in the way they achieve it. Less is more for me. What’s yours?
Kristin Stehly Less is definitely more for me too. It’s just getting to that point and figuring out how to let go of a few things.
Joyce Cherrier Mine is more time for movement/exercise/meditation & less time trying to change things I can’t.
Bonnie Lang Been thinking about it too…and I agree, less is more for me…usually. But at this point in my life I’m actually not that busy with work, so I feel like I have TOO much down time and I’m not always using that time to be productive. I’m struggling to find that type of balance at the moment, but as long as I’m loving God and loving people I know I’m moving in the right direction!
Carla Birnberg for me balance can be elusive. I’m all about the HARMONY.
Tara Burner my balance is nowhere near what most would consider balance but as long as things go smoothly & get done, that’s balance for me.
Rebekah Borucki making ME a priority. with four kids, I get lost in the shuffle. if nothing else, I always make my yoga classes.
Heather Gannoe My balance is ASKING for help! I always put EVERYONE ahead of myself. Now as a single mom, I hate to “burden” my family by asking them to watch my boys. A week will go by without me running, and when I’m about to snap, my mom or dad will be like “shouldn’t you go run? Why haven’t you asked us to watch the boys?” LOL
Lindsay Cotter so maybe its not balance we, but PURPOSE, PEACE, and HARMONY?!
I think that sums it up quite nicely, don’t you?
After gathering my thoughts (the few that I had left), I decided to VLOG about it. It’s easier and I am too lazy to type it all out.
Please excuse the glare. I’m a video rookie here.
Now if you excuse me, I must go finish my purpose for today.
My own version of Holiday Cards (aka post cards)
And rolling up more of Healthy Bites for Holiday treats.
Yes, I will share this recipe. I’m thinking it will be part of WIAW. Cool?
How do you find Holiday Balance? Do you?
I almost forgot to finish up my THANKFUL BOARD.
