Finding time for yourself can be hard. In between balancing work, life, family, trying to work out, attempting to be mildly social and keeping laundry from swallowing you whole, there’s not much time to #treatyoself. But it’s important. And yes, people will continue to tell you how important it is and yes, you’ll continue to struggle to find time for it in your day. Or maybe that’s just me.
Lately it’s been tougher than ever to try and squeeze time in for myself. In the last two weeks, I’ve been really overwhelmed with work commitments (everyone here waits until after Derby to schedule things, then it hits you all at once) and blog projects (I’ve admittedly gotten a little ahead of myself) alongside all the kids’ sports and end-of-school year activities. I find myself taking it one day at a time to avoid feeling like I’m in over my head. Admittedly, sometimes I feel like shutting down and walking away from it all.
To avoid that, I’ve been recommitting to unplugging and spending some time alone, even if it’s just for a few minutes every day… in my car. No, but really, when I had the chance to partner with Babbleboxx to try out some goodies aimed at making ladies’ lives a little less stressful and a little healthier, I was game.
So consider this like a Five I’ve Tried but instead of being beauty focused, I’m looking at ways to bring a little more balance into the day.
