Finding The Time For Yourself

For those of you who have come along on our #DoTheDaniel adventures over the last few years, you’ll have seen that I have a newfound appreciate of fitness and finding balance in my day-to-day. The difficult part of that is that “fitness” as a topic hasn’t always felt like the most approachable thing to me. Like many of you, it can be intimidating, and even overly expensive to try and work towards being more physically active and make healthier choices.

The Moment That Changed My Life

Well that’s a title and a half, isn’t it?

But one that I’ve been giving some serious thought in the first few days of the new year. Over the last twelve months I have chosen to (and at times felt like I have been made to) evolve in more ways than a lot of people will ever realize.

New Fitbit, Who Dis?

Monday mornings are always dichotomous for me. I love working and I always have. Though the position I have held has never really mattered, work gives me purpose and direction. But commuting to the office, showering, picking out an outfit, and doing all the things I need to drag myself out of bed after what I hope would be a relaxing Sunday… I definitely can empathize with the #Mondaze sentiment most of the time. That being said, you all know that I have really been trying to work on myself lately. From being more physically active, to focusing on positive things and people in light of difficult personal challenges I am facing, there is always a choice to be made. To be broken by challenges, or to use them as lessons. Fitness has become an outlet for me, even if it’s just taking a two hour walk to get out of the house and out of my own head.  Continue reading “New Fitbit, Who Dis?”
