I feel as if this is becoming maybe a big trend with the way I live life right now since being a SAHM but I’m trying to be better at balancing my life a little bit. I think we all can understand that trying to multi task the endless juggling of work, home life, social life and everything in between is such a daily issue at times.
But then I heard this quote the other day from a fellow blogger who I super admire and she kept saying over and over how important it was to of course work our butts off.. but just as equally important, is resting. We all know that saying of “Work Hard, Play Hard” but let’s change it up a bit.
Work Hard, Rest Hard.
I’m all about rewarding great behavior or task on a job well done. As bloggers, we really work out butt’s off to promote our brand to others, connecting with fellow friends and schedule all our posts to social media websites. As parents, we work on keeping our kids alive every day ( ha ..but seriously ), plan events, grocery shop, keep the house clean etc. As friends, it’s all about spending quality time with those friends who support us, uplifting them, encouraging them and above all listening to them when they need it.
Now that you’ve run a million laps around the room, what’s your reward? REST and all by means, that means DONT plan anything. Take the time to do absolutely nothing. What makes me laugh the hardest because it’s so true, is when my parent friends will plan this great weekend alone without their kids, only to spend it all ordering room service and binge watching Netflix all day.
GO FOR IT!
The point is you work hard so why not enjoy some down time. You deserve it. You crave it. You need to plan it out on a daily basis. Your body will thank you for it.
