“My point is, life is about balance. The good and the bad. The highs and the lows. The pina and the colada.”

Hello my drear friends!

The title and the pictures speak itself! Balancing on a narrow tree stem is not so easy 😉
Following this idea and applying it to life it’s the same. How often when we are stressed or just have too many things to do – it’s hard to find the inner and outer balance. Is it work-life-balance or social time and me-time. When we start to feel unhappy, tired and get easily irritated it’s time to rebalance. Everybody has their own mechanisms or activities for this but in the end it should all help to find a good fresh starting point and feeling energized. Here are my top 3 tips to find balance and that really work for me.

Go out in the nature

The best way to destress and reconnect with your body is going out in the fresh air. Especially in big cities and with all the digitalization of our life it’s harder to connect with yourself as we get so easily distracted by smartphones, TV and so many other noises…

Question what you do

When we are trapped with our mindset in certain routines or work activities I feel to loose the ‘big frame’. Worrying about little things and getting stressed. It just helps to ask yourself: Why do I do this? Is it really worth it? Does it benefit me in any way? Does it bring me closer to my goals?

Treat yourself

And of course what could be more beneficial to calm down and find balance? Treat yourself with a massage, read a book or just day dream for a while. No matter what it is, take the time for something you usually tell yourself that you don’t have the time for. At the moment I consciously remove my smartphone because it stresses me so much. And with this I treat myself too because I remove the stress and pressure (of course which is in the end self-made)..

Or even better, I take time to craft again. Probably you do remember these shorts from last year? I did a DIY Patch Upcycling and love them even more now. You can read the full DIY here 🙂

What is your secret tip to find the balance? Let me know! And I’m happy if you tell me how you like the DIY Tutorial! Would you like to see some on the blog?

    Liebe Michaela,
    in deinem Post habe mich total wiedergefunden. (-; Ich liebe es genauso in die Natur zu gehen und habe sogar einen LIbelingsplatz, wo ich genauso wie du auf eine Baumstamm über einem Fluss sitze. (-; Es ist traumhaft! Es entstresst total und macht klar im Kopf. Liebe Grüße!

    Dein Outfit ist ganz bezaubernd! Die verspielte Bluse passt ganz toll zu den bestickten Short! 🙂 Die Bilder sind übriges auch richtig toll!
    Ich finde, in der Natur kann man sich eh am besten erholen. Also mich bringt es immer sehr runter, wenn ich mir eine Auszeit nehme und z. B. spazieren gehe oder ausreite.

    Liebe Grüße,
