How to get back to sanity in 3 simple steps

Lotus flower in still water

When we feel over­whelmed, it’s really easy to think that there’s no way out. You’re stuck in a misery of your own mak­ing, or that the chil­dren or fam­ily are dic­tat­ors in a sick plot twist of your own life (yes, at times, these were my thoughts in this year LOL).

When you cross this place in your­self, rather than judge your­self harshly for your thoughts, acknow­ledge that there is some­thing you are miss­ing for your­self. You have needs. You have desires. You are also the driver of that real­ity.

How to get back to sanity in 3 simple steps

  1. Choosing Joy
  2. It’s really as simple as real­iz­ing what truly makes you happy. I love walk­ing in nature and being out­side as much as pos­sible. The more I do that, the bet­ter I feel phys­ic­ally and emo­tion­ally. I remem­ber that I am not a work­horse or a moth­er or a spouse or a sis­ter or a friend, but a per­son with her own unique self who has interests that are hers, and hers alone.

  3. Small goals
  4. If you want to start to feel more hydrated, then think of one way you can add water. Just do that for a week. See how it works. We can over­com­plic­ate our lives and add too much all at once. Small, simple goals. See how you feel.

  5. Remembering the basics
  6. Eat-sleep-exercise-laugh-love

    These are truly the only reas­ons we’re here. We’re not meant to be more com­plic­ated than this, and if we’re miss­ing one part of this vital equa­tion, we won’t feel bal­anced. It’s a nice way to see if we’re on the right track. If you’re con­fused you can ask myself and Andrea for help! That’s our role, but truly, start­ing these self-sup­ports will really get you back to your­self.

    Much love,
