Happy Posts, Thoughts of a Dietitian

Where’s the Balance?

I was recently at an “orientation” training for my job, and let’s be real, it was about as exciting as it sounds. (Not at all.)

But there was one session that really resonated for me, and I think a lot of people generally lack in this area as well. It’s about that work-life balance.

I’m a Dietitian, I should be a pro a balance…aren’t I always talking about balanced meals?!

What I want everyone to do right now is STOP and write down the 2-3 most important things in your life! Once you do that, I want you to take it one step further and think about what sorts of things occupy the largest percentage of your time.

Guess what, the most important things in my life were no where remotely supported by the activities that were occupying most of my day. And that’s a problem.

This exercise is really simple, but I hope for some of my readers it’s a powerful reminder. If your family is the most important thing to you, why do you spend so many extra hours at work? If your financial stability is the most important thing to you, why are you always teasing yourself online shopping? Find that balance and realign your actions with your priorities, and do it soon.

Have a great, and balanced, weekend my friends!
