After a whole week of eating chocolate scones, I needed to make up for my binge of indulgence by introducing more health conscious meals into my diet. I tend to work in extremes, when I know I’ve been eating unhealthy I will swing to the opposite side of the spectrum and eat nothing but fruits and veggies. Learning how to create balance not only in my diet but also in my life is something I’ve been working on lately. I’ve come to the realization that I’ve significantly underestimated how living a balance life contributes to our ability to live a successful and productive life.
I grew up watching my mother constantly work all the time. When we were young she was a stay at home mom but would still fill every moment of her time with volunteering, cleaning the house, taking care of the lawn, and running errands. She never stopped to take a break, relax, and have fun, it was always go…go…go… all the time. I remember her rushing around the house trying to get everything done and exclaiming “I just don’t have enough time.” Of course I believed I would never turn out to be like my mother but as I’ve gotten older I find myself also saying “I just don’t have enough time.”
