We have something in common. Because if there’s one thing that too many of us have learned the ropes of, it’s juggling. Today, keeping your daily life in perfect balance while somehow maintaining your sanity can be a bit of a challenge, to say the least. We have become artisans in multitasking, balancing a staggering amount of things on our already heavy plates. And that’s not at all. Maintaining healthy and happy relationships with work, family and friends is also part of your daily to-do list. The amounts of pressure are often overwhelming, and while powering through might seem like an okay option at the moment, not being your own number one priority can lead to burnout. And no one wants that to happen. To keep yourself in a good place and be prepared for whatever life throws at you, make sure to follow along with our refueling tips below.
Keep loved ones close
Relationships are important. They keep us grounded and makes us feel loved. When we shift our focus towards our career, the first thing that usually suffers is quality time with those who matter most. It’s not that they are not our number one priority, on the contrary, it’s just that we wrongly expect them to understand. But we shouldn’t. These are the people that will help you relax, help you to disconnect from the outside noise and expectations and just let you be yourself. They kind of act like our oxygen when we feel we can’t breathe.
Get that post-gym happiness
When you feel like life is pushing you to your limits, I’ll assume the last thing on your mind is hitting the gym for leg day. Trust me, I’ve been there. The undeniable truth is that regular exercising doesn’t just make look better, it makes you feel better. The steady release of dopamine (the happy hormone) acts like a therapy session without the hefty price tag. And if you want to prolong that post-gym happiness, treat yourself to a Muscle Soak bathing session followed by our 03 Massage Oil.
Be mindful of your mornings
If you’re anything like me, your mornings are forever changing. One day, I might be hitting snooze approximately 17 times, the next, I’ll have the motivation and energy to run 5 miles before work. But it’s exactly that inconsistency that’s tiring, especially paired with the million other things going on in your life. What helps is to customize a ritual, something to kickstart your day and more importantly, a routine that feels right to you. It could involve absolutely anything, but our 34 Sprint Mind Olfatic Inhaler is a great place to start.
Treat your time better
Your time is precious so try to treat it that way. You don’t feel like going bowling on your only free Friday night? Politely say no. People will understand. And if they don’t, they might not be the right moral support you need in your life right now. Saying no somehow makes you look like a bad person, a bad partner, a bad friend. That’s wrong on so many levels. What it actually does is make sure you can be a better person, a better partner and a much better friend.
Take a time out
Everyone needs a break. It just seems that not everyone dares to admit when they need one. It’s so important to know your body and fully acknowledge when it needs a time out. All you need to do is listen. Whether that’s in the form of an extra half hour of pilates or a much needed holiday with loved ones, that is entirely up to you. If it’s up to us though, a relaxing post-work bath with our Brain Soak set is the (minimum fuss & maximum effect) break we simply can’t get enough of.
