The Secret to Sanity!! Focus On You and Have It All, Too!

Wow!!! Between the start of school, getting prepped for birthdays and the upcoming holidays (eek!...yes, the arrival of pumpkin spiced everything is not just a fabulous coincidence!), and managing the everyday to-do's of normal life, you can quickly find yourself out of your routine and out of your mind. Don't fret, though. I have just realized the secret to sanity, and I'm sharing it with you today!!
Organization is great, lists are extremely helpful, prioritizing is a must, but nothing can compare to putting yourself first. I know this sounds crazy and selfish, and seemingly impossible, but I'm not advising you to push everything else in life to the wayside, leave dishes and laundry to the wayside, and completely check out and check in to a spa (ah, but doesn't that sound nice?) No, I'm saying start a list that's completely separate of your to-do's that's entitled "This Is What I Need Daily To Feel Great!". It sounds hokey, but I tried and it works!
On my list, which was far shorter and simpler than I had originally thought it would be, I had four simple items: 1) some form of cardio, 2) a shower by myself (or just without kids ;), 3) twenty minutes of uninterrupted workout time, and 4) something small to have done that would make me feel like a great mom, a great wife, and that my house was in order...okay the last one is really three things, but I digress.
I made this list exactly one week ago, and it has simplified my days, made me feel more accomplished every day, and I truly feel like I have everything in place and in order at the end of the day.
Simplicity! Sanity, found!
If you can do one thing for yourself today, please try this one tip: take a few minutes, even throughout the day, to come up with four things that would make you feel good about yourself. Four! It makes things seem manageable, doable, and you really do end up with a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction at the end of the day...and isn't that all we're really striving for? :)
Best of luck! :)
