Today's post is about how I find a balance in my life.
Find an activity you love. For me, it's spinning. After a grueling 45 minutes I feel happy, confident, and accomplished. Since I try to keep a balance, I recently began yoga to counteract the intensity of spin. Namaste.
Search the Internet for your favorite cuisine. It's a great tool that allows you find recipes, read reviews and tailor meals to your specific needs and taste. Sometimes its not easy to sort the good from the bad so I will be posting some tried and true healthy recipes on here. Feel free to share yours also!
Also, choose organic when you can. It is expensive but if feasible try to buy organic items on the dirty dozen list (pictured to the right). I also make sure to buy organic dairy products, poultry and other meats.
Embrace To-do Lists
There is nothing better than being able to cross off a few tasks that have been pushed aside for just a little too long. I am a planner by nature and make lists somewhat compulsively. Sit down, write out things that must be done, and tackle them head on! Motivational tip: write something down you already finished or are about to finish to jumpstart the crossing out extravaganza!
Make Time For Yourself
Read a book, have a glass of wine (or two...), call a friend, go out with friends, indulge in ice cream or a mini shopping spree. You deserve it!
