1.} Family/friends/pets: because well, duh. My family & friends keep me inspired & sane. Without them the rest of the pyramid wouldn’t function properly. Pixy is the love of my life ( sorry, Michael ). So naturally they’re the foundation & biggest part of my pyramid.
2.} ‘Me time’: if I don’t have alone time, I F-ing freak the F out. When I’m alone I’m able to collect my thoughts. ‘Me time’ also means I can read. I loveeee to read— it’s therapeutic. Point: without alone time I’m a mega bitch 24/7.
3.} Romance <3: obviously my babe is in the friend category above but romance is super important too. There’s nothing better than taking quality time off & spending time with the person you love. Cracking open a bottle of red wine + lettuce wrap tacos has become a Sunday night ritual for us. Romance= a break from work/stress.
4.} Work: I can be a bit OCD/obsessive when it comes to work. But hey, I’m working on it. Even making this pyramid was a reminder to chill out on working every second. Any volunteer work/helping people ( or dogs ) would also fall under this category.
5.} Fitness/Taking Care of Myself: I try to break a sweat once a day ( sex counts, right? ). Sweating isn’t just about body image, it also helps me quell any anxiety. Eating as clean/healthy as possible is def in this category too. And hey, I definitely also love a good lipstick & a few spritz of perfume. Shocker! When I look good, I feel good.
6.} Miscellaneous: this is an open-ended piece of the puzzle. This piece represents: a clean house, meditating, learning, traveling, cooking, wine ( so sue me ), baking, reading, gardening, teaching, & just trying to keep up with Suzy F-ing Homemaker.
I’d love to know: what’s on your balance pyramid?
