Show Yourself Some Love!

LoveLove… EVERYDAY!

‘Tis the season of love!  The month when we love up on significant others, family members, even pets.  So how about we love up on ourselves a bit too!

I’m not suggesting buying ourselves a five pound chunk of chocolate and breaking off a bite every 15 minutes.  I mean, let’s take a moment to be thankful for our bodies and having the ability to make it better.

In my latest newsletter, I mentioned that I find it very interesting that society puts so much emphasis on one day of the year to show to others how much we love them.  I also correlated that we use the month of January to do the same for our bodies.

Would you agree that love or better health is not going to be had by working on it for just a day or even a month for that matter?  What I’m getting at is this: Our body is our own masterpiece.  It is what we put in it.  Ha!  Literally and figuratively speaking, actually!

That’s a different way to look at it, isn’t it?  Just like a loving relationship, it takes patience and continual work to reap the benefits of a healthy body.  Take this time to put a plan into action on ways to treat your body better.  The benefits are SO worth it!

Personal Contracts

This is part II of my last Blog on Balance 😉

Finding My Balancebalancing_elephant

There are times in our lives that we need to take a step back to reorganize, reassess and redirect our efforts.  This should be a scheduled occurrence.   It could be once a year, every six months, maybe even monthly.  It gives us a time to reflect and move forward in a more positive and productive manner.

In conversation with a friend of mine, we decided that a great way to do this would be to write up contracts for ourselves.  And to keep ourselves accountable, we would send the signed contracts to each other.

We are both working on businesses and trying to find balance with productive schedules that still leave time for us to have a life.  So our contacts were based on those areas of concern.

This idea could also be used in families or relationships.  Not only would it be a great relationship builder but it would assure that everyone is on the same page and working towards the same goals.

What would your contract look like?  What areas of your life would it cover?  Believe it or not, the act of producing and signing a contract that came from your feelings and needs is quite liberating and empowering.  Give it a shot!

Balance

Are there any Professional Life Balancers out there?  Get in touch with me, I need some help!  Anybody else feel like they need some help in this department?

Of course, if there were Professional Life Balancers out there for hire, I’m sure they would recommend time management, goal setting and learning to say no as part of their words of wisdom.  What other advice could you give from experience?

Balance

These words of wisdom can be shifted to many parts of our lives, I’m sure.  Think about where your balance is off in your life.  Can any of those recommendations be applied in that situation?

I’m no Professional Life Balancer but I can tell you one thing that gets me through the tough days… knowing that today is today and tomorrow is tomorrow.  Be grateful for today and plan for tomorrow.
