Welcome To The Month Of May!

May book-bindings-calendar-chalk-out-1074914.jpg

I love this month because it kicks off the summer season and it is full of fun celebrations like Mother’s Day and Memorial Day which are good times to reconnect with friends and family. I have been trying very hard to live my life more intentional so that I can accomplish more in my business and personal life. One of those things that I have been focused on is maintaining a healthy lifestyle by eating more veggies and inserting yoga into my exercise plan. A little bit goes a long way and I believe in taking baby steps. The first baby step is eating by the season and month. According to wisebread.com the following veggies are in season this month:

  • zucchini

  • okra

  • rhubarb

  • artichokes

  • asparagus

  • spring peas

  • broccoli

  • lettuce

Grab a friend or just go solo to your favorite local farmers market and pick your own veggies while getting some great cardio in:)

The beginning of the month brings a clean slate to set new goals and redefine how you want to run your business and your life.

If you picked the second photo but wished your life could look more like the first photo then you are in good company.   According to an article from Entrepreneur.com, "More than 11 percent of American workers say they work 50 or more hours a week."  And The American Institute of Stress stated that "77% of people regularly experience physical symptoms caused by stressed." 

Can you really achieve a work-life balance?

I think you can achieve balance in both areas of your life. It takes effort, focus, and patience with yourself. To get you started on this journey check out this article with 20 great ideas towards getting your life to look more like picture number one. You can't be a successful entrepreneur if your life is falling apart. But you can stop and redirect your energy towards living a more positive and intentional life.

Do you have any tips to share on how you work to achieve balance in each area of your life? I love shutting off all electronics and just meditating. What about you?

Are You Still Living Healthy?

2017 is almost over.

Did you keep your goal to live more healthy this year?

Don't feel bad if you went off track. As a busy entrepreneur, it can get really challenging to make healthy choices. Next week we will take a look at companies that offer healthy prepared meals delivered straight to your door. This might come in handy after eating all that Thanksgiving turkey.

Until then take a look at a previous post I wrote on fun options for staying healthy.
