Today as part of the summer a day photo challenge the word was shade. There I was on the track after a two mile run in the humidity and heat that is Houston, Texas. As this picture was being taken inside my head were the thousands of thoughts of things that needed to be done along with looming deadlines. How to balance it all has got me scratching my head and it occurred to me that there is a vicious cycle.
My joy and what I love to do has a lot to do with working online. This passion keeps me at a desk for many hours. In order to fight the health issues (lack of sleep, poor eating habits, awful posture and lack of exercise) I force myself to work out first. It doesn’t matter if it is running, walking, crossfit, circuit training, yoga you name it as along as I’m putting my fitness first I’m fighting the battle. The problem is time management working out doesn’t always come first. Some days there is just too many logistics.
This week has been just me caring for the kids and between writing, meetings and deadlines I feel out of balance. I’m working when I can as quickly as I can to meet all my obligations. If I don’t force myself out of this chair the health issues begin in that downward spiral up there in parenthesis. Which brings me to you my readers and fellow Aloha Friday party goers…
How do you find balance?
Be sure to come back next Friday for another random question here on Aloha Friday!
