Hello New Year – Week 4 – Balance! If you haven’t joined our Hello New Year Facebook group yet you’re missing out! Come join us through the month of January to get the New Year off to a great start!
Hello! Amber here! This week is going to be all about balance! My husband and I decided that “balance” is our theme this year. Last year nothing was really wrong, but a lot of areas of our life weren’t right. We realized that we weren’t balancing all of our priorities very well, so this year we’re on a mission to do that!
If you’re new and haven’t joined our Hello New Year Facebook group yet click on over and join! It has been a really helpful way to get this year going right! Each day throughout the month of January we will post a 10 minute challenge to help you get things in order. You can get feedback and tips from everyone in the group as well as share your ideas with others!
Here are this week’s challenges if you want to read up and get ahead, or jot them down in your planner! They are all about creating balance in your life to set yourself on a path for a better new year.
Challenge 21: Balance Your Emotional Health
This doesn’t mean you’ll be happy all the time, but it means you’ll be able to function and keep up with your demands. Take a few minutes and think about where you fit with this. Is there an area of your life where you find your emotions slipping every time it gets hard? For me, last year I would basically have an emotional melt down every time our house got dirty and I realized that this area of my life needed a little more attention so that I felt more stable. Write down one thing you can do to balance this area this year!
Challenge 22: Balance Your Mental Health
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Take a few minutes and assess your mental health. Write down one thing you can do to help keep your mental health in balance this year!
Challenge 23: Balance Your Physical Health
How are you doing in the physical health department? Is it something nagging in the back of your brain, or are you great at it? Wherever you are on the scale, write down one thing you can do to help keep your physical health in balance.
Challenge 24: Balance Your Work
Are you a workaholic, or are you stuck in a job you hate dreading every minute of it? Whatever your situation, take a minute to think about your work life and whether or not it’s in balance with everything else you have going on. Write down one thing you can do this year to keep it balanced with everything else.
Challenge 25: Balance Your Family Life
Is your family a huge priority in your life, or do you push them aside to accomplish other things? Take a minute and think about how they fit into your daily life. Write down one thing you can do to help keep them part of the balance.
Challenge 26: Balance Your Housework
Is your house so messy it’s the bane or your existence, or is it so clean you can’t stand to let your kids walk in after school and mess it up? Wherever you are on the scale of housework, take a minute to think about what you can do to keep it in balance with the rest of your life. Then write it down!
Challenge 27: Balance Your Spirituality
Do you find your soul aching to know the answers to deep questions, or are you constantly lacking purpose in this life? Take a minute to think about where you see yourself spiritually. In this day with so much entertainment around, moments of pondering and peace can be hard to find. Write down one thing you want to do this year to keep your spiritual side in balance with the rest of your life.
