Readers, I’ve been taking blogging a bit easy lately, since I’ve been extra focused on work and finding a sense of balance in my day to day ebb and flow. Things have a way of getting out of balance quickly and I find it’s a constant effort to feel like I’ve got everything calm and centered. Some of the ways I try to stay grounded are below. Please share your grounded, centered, and calming tips in the comments section below! I would love new ideas!
- Connecting with friends and family; talk about a taking a village, am I right? Even just a quick text to share in a moment feels like a wonderfully balanced act.
- Alone time; most people are shocked to know I’m a massive introvert. I really only recharge being completely by myself and I’ve implemented “task free days” where I just CHILL and do whatever I want. So liberating!! Those days, I’m often thrifting, at the library, or catching up on a few of my favorite shows.
- Creating! I LOVE to craft just about anything. These days, I’ve been working on felted wool animals. Yep. It’s so relaxing and calming!
- Yoga, mindfulness, and running. Enough said!
