I’m so excited to be writing about smart thinking lifestyle tips today! As an uber busy work at home mama, any little tips that I can use to help my life run a little more seamlessly is A-ok with me! The most important thing in my life right now is being able to achieve balance. Being able to balance quality time with my family and working on our business is of an utmost priority to me. Along the way I’ve learned that while at times the perfect balance isn’t always achievable, doing my best at giving my all to both parts of my life is the most I can expect from myself!
You might wonder how I get work done with the dude running around. Well, I try to be productive during his naptime, when he takes one that is, and after he goes to bed! I might get to the point where I need to bring in some help, but right now being able to spend the amount of time that I do with my little man is totally worth losing a few hours of sleep! If I do need to work during the day while he’s up, I’ll give him an activity that makes him feel like he’s working with me. Inclusion is the name of the game when it comes to kiddos. If they feel like they’re being included, you’ll see a lot less pouting!
As far as the hubs goes, we always try to eat dinner together, even if it’s just takeout. Sitting down in the evening and chatting about our days with each other is so important to our relationship. We also have our tv time in the evening after the dude goes to sleep. We can’t live without our shows! It’s sad, but true. At least it’s an addiction we share with each other. Haha! We don’t get out for as many date nights as we used to, but making sure we get out for some alone time every once and a while keeps us sane and connected! Our little romantic escape to Costa Rica last month was rejuvenating!
And the final component to achieving a more balanced life for me is alleviating stress. Exercise plays a big role in that for me! Sweating it out for a an hour as many days a week as I can fit it in or even just doing some yoga does wonders to keep those little stress monsters at bay!
So, they’re you have it folks…That’s how I attempt to achieve balance in my life! I would love to hear tips on how y’all do it!
