My last check-in was December 24.
So, it’s been a while. Which is evidence supporting that a) it’s been a crazy few months, and b) my self-care has not been ideal. (Case in point – self-care, for me, usually involves writing. And if I’m not blogging, I’m probably not writing.)
Anyway – here’s where I’m at:
Things I learned from this #How’sMyBalance check-in
- Come on, KEM! There is literally NO SLICE for #spirit! It makes sense though. Things have been pretty crazy and stressful, and when I’m stressed out, I revert to routine, rhythm, and familiarity. I get myself back to basics – it helps me to feel grounded, centered.
- I’ve been going to the gym – ugh, not my favorite form of exercise, but it’s winter and the snow has kept me from trail running. I’ve been doing a Plank Challenge for the last few days, which I think may be an urban myth… Supposedly, if I follow a Plank Challenge schedule like the one I found online (see this website), in 30 days I’ll be able to stay in plank position for five minutes. FIVE MINUTES. I call bullshit. But I’ve been trying it anyway – I’m on day five.
- There’s been so much happening lately that I haven’t felt super-balanced; however, looking at my pie chart, I haven’t been doing TOO badly. Sometimes we’re harder on ourselves than we need to be.
Cheers to balance!
