BALANCE in April

At the start of the year, I shared with you my word for 2015 – CONFIDENCE.

I also shared with you my word for February – FOCUS, my word for January was INTEGRITY, and for March it was BELIEVE.

Well now, April is here and after some deep thought, I have a word for these 30 days – BALANCE.


April | Balance 

This is what BALANCE will look like for me in regards to Health & Fitness this month:

Health | Balance out my weekly schedule between work, running, swimming, cycling and yoga. Balance my nutrition – healthy vs treats. Get prepared for Whole30. Book a massage. Complete my physiotherapy exercises. 


I’ve just had one of the craziest months in a long time. I’ve moved house (technically about three times in the month), been in a new job, travelling and generally living day by day. I lost perspective a little, things fell to the wayside when they should have been taking priority. I kinda stopped looking after myself just to have one less thing to do! 

Now I’m back in my own home, with all the space I could want, it’s time to regain some BALANCE.

At the end of February I used my Passion Planner to reflect on the month that had passed and also think about what I wanted to get out of March. My game changer(s) for March were swimming and organising myself to be ready to move. I have definitely been successful in both even through some hiccups.

For April, my game changers are pretty similar; swimming and settling into my home. I’ll also be refocusing on the blog (the last couple weeks have been unusual and I’m also waiting for my new internet connection at home!) and getting back into the rhythm.

I’m gonna leave you with a quote from my Passion Planner… it’s resonates with me for the month just passed….

Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them – Albert Einstein

    This is a very cool idea – a word to focus on each month. Balance is definitely something I need to work on.Good luck and I'm looking forward to more updates.<3 Jamaicahttp://rarax3.com

      Thanks Jamaica! I think balance is probably something we all lose focus on every now and again! xoxo
