Finding balance in the busy trap // #30daystobalance

#30daystobalance // a thousand threads
It probably goes without saying that over these past few months, we haven’t exactly been putting our health first. Dough Uprising, Field + Foundry, this blog, our full-time jobs, keeping up with Austin… eventually something slips, and our “something” has been exercise, eating right, doing things like getting haircuts and cutting our nails (ew, but really).

Sometimes it takes a shakeup to make you realize just how badly you’ve been treating yourself… and how neglected you really feel.

So, since we’re about to head out on vacation and I’m suddenly faced with a whole big bunch of time to make a real effort to unwind, and since I usually have a hard time actually doing that, I thought I’d make all of this into a little bit of a game.

… a daily reminder to take a break and do at least one thing each day for the next 30 days that feeds my body or soul.

And if at the end of a busy summer you’re all feeling the same, I hope you’ll join me! I’ll be posting a shot to Instagram for each day of the challenge using the hashtag #30daystobalance. If you do the same you’ll keep me honest — I need the encouragement, believe me — plus, I’d love to be able to post some of your shots.

Let me know if you’ll be following along, and hopefully I’ll see you over on Instagram!
