How I Stay Balanced When Life is Crazy...

Yep I admit it....life has been crazy the past couple of weeks!  I literally unpacked my suitcase a week and a half after I got home from vacation. I've been busy spending time with my son and enjoying some much needed play dates after being gone for almost two weeks. I feel like I can barely keep up with cleaning my house, all in the midst of teaching Yoga & Fit4Mom classes and hosting Freezer Meal Workshops.

So you wonder....How do I stay balanced when life is crazy....

How I stay balanced when life gets crazy!

There are several things that help me through crazy, high-paced, or even stressful times. 

1) Yoga Balancing Poses

Yoga Balancing Poses! How I Stay Balanced when life gets crazy!

When doing Balancing Yoga Poses, you have to focus! It takes not only strength, but mental focus. So when I practice balancing poses, my thoughts go away from the craziness of life, and I am forced to focus on holding the pose, and keeping a steady breath. This brings relief to a crazy life, and allows me to clear my mind of all that it has been bogged down with. 

Yoga Balancing Poses truly are a powerful tool when life is crazy.

2) Stay Grounded with Pluggz

Stay Grounded with Pluggz! How I Stay Balanced when life gets crazy!

What are Pluggz?? Pluggz are shoes (super cute shoes) that have grounding techniques that connect you to the earth and enable an electrical connection and harmony that our body needs. Our body is lacking in electrons due to the separation we get from most buildings and footwear. Pluggz have a connection agent that keep that contact for us! 

Here's why being grounded is so important for us, especially in our high tech world today...

"High-tech materials tend to cause us to accumulate an excess positive charge, or stated another way, a deficiency of electrons. Grounding eliminates this excess positive charge and brings us back to our natural state of being in harmony with the earth. Excess positive charge adversely affects various physiological processes. Most people can feel the difference that grounding makes...One can also get grounded by going barefoot on the earth...."

3) Have a good book with me always!

Have a good book with me always! How I Stay Balanced when life gets crazy!

Yep I just started reading this book. And as a matter of fact, I just adopted this concept of staying balanced. I think taking time to read a book in your spare time versus getting lost in your phone or other technology can definitely keep us balanced. It quiets our mind, and in this case is a great way for self-development and growth. 

This book is all about taking advantage of our "Fringe" hours, or spare hours throughout the day. So that's what I am doing by keeping a book on hand with me. Now I just have to fight the urge to be on my phone, and instead choose to pick up the book when I have free time. 

4) Freezer Meals

Freezer Meals! How I Stay Balanced when life gets crazy!

This concept has been a life saver over the past few months. As you may know I host local and long distance Freezer Meal Workshops! You can get more info on that HERE.

Having healthy meals prepped ahead of time and ready to toss in the crockpot in the morning or at lunch is so handy! Plus when it's time to eat my home smells incredible! And all the meals are amazing! Especially my latest menu of soups and stews! (I'm so ready for the Fall) You can order an On-the-Go Workshop here and get the recipes and all you need to make these yummy soups!

Oh, but be sure you REMEMBER TO PLUG IN THE CROCKPOT! Yep, that happened yesterday...needless to say, we went out for dinner!  

5) Keep Going!

Just keep going! How I Stay Balanced when life gets crazy!

Whatever you do, just keep going! Give yourself a high-five, take a couple of minutes to breathe, and remember why you do what you do, and soon enough, the craziness will chill some! JUST KEEP GOING! You can do it! 

Surround yourself with people that will push and encourage you to keep going when life gets hard! Join a #FitFam, and be encouraged by them, but just keep going!

10 Days of Christmas Giveaway Day 6 #SweatPink

Welcome to Day #6 of the 10 Days of Christmas Giveaways!

10 days of Christmas

I am lucky to have been a part of an awesome Ambassador program and online fitness community for the past several years.....

SWEAT PINK! by FitApproach

NEW-SPA-badge-2

You can find this badge sitting proudly on my blog sidebar!

Being a Sweat Pink Ambassador has some great perks, and enables me to try new products, so that I can share them with you all, and sometimes give things away! (And we all love Giveaways right!), but more than that....being a Sweat Pink Ambassador has opened me up to a whole world of an online fitness community that so many people don't even know exists!

I have made some awesome friendships with women around the world!

I have learned so much about blogging from other awesome bloggers!

I have been encouraged to run half marathons, and try new workouts from them!

I am inspired daily to be a better me and go after my dreams because of all that they do and achieve!

I am a part of some awesome challenges like the #HolidaySweat Challenge where I get to interact with them and am motivated to be a better me and make awesome changes in my life!

Basically, it's pretty FREAKING AWESOME to be a Sweat Pink Ambassador!

And I want to share the love with you!

One way we let people know we are Ambassadors, and one way we spread the kick-butt attitude is by wearing #SweatPinkLaces! That's right, men and women around the world have been encouraged by these laces, and wear them proudly, reminding them to give their all, and push through the pain.  To take chances, believe in themselves, and achieve big things!

So today, one lucky WINNER is going to get to "Join the Sweat Pink movement, and go farther, faster, in these pink shoelaces." PLUS, I am going to give you an extra pair of laces so that you can give them to someone else you know that needs encouragement and a daily reminder to KICK-BUTT at all they do!
