For some reason summer always seems to be more busy for me than the school year. I am constantly running around doing, doing, doing, which leads me to be stressed out, tired, and needless to say exhausted. I like keeping myself busy, but when does busy become too busy? By the amount of meltdowns I have had this summer already, I think I am far past the too busy point. To help myself avoid the meltdowns I am abiding by these tips.
1. Take a Break: I find taking 10-15 minutes to just sit-- no technology, people, or plans-- and think really helps me relax. There is something about having time just for me that makes my day so much better.
2. Meditate: Along the same lines, I find meditating very relaxing. It clears my mind and makes me feel so refreshed afterward. I do, however, recommend meditating at night because it makes me so relaxed that I get drowsy.
3. Get Some Sleep: I can't stress how important getting sleep is. When I don't get enough sleep my whole day is terrible and I am never in a good mood-- as both my family and Seth can agree with haha. I always try to shoot for 9 hours a night because the extra hour just feels so great!
How do you balance life in the summer?
