I have a busy day job. It’s dynamic and challenging and I love it. I also find it exhausting at times, due to the demand on my time and energy.
Experimenting with skin care products is a great relief for me. I get to be creative and try out different things. I get to experiment with scents, textures and viscosity. It’s very different from my day job and it provides me with the right balance. I also love sharing my creations with my family and friends and finding out what they like and don’t like about each one.
As a side benefit, I’m learning lots of tidbits about adding balance to my day. I recently started brushing my skin in the morning again. I found out I love it! It’s a great way to start my day and knowing that I get to do this helps me drag myself out of bed each morning.
I’ve also cut a lot of unnecessary chemicals out of my life. By making a simple change to a natural soap, I realized that I didn’t need my store bought moisturizer anymore. And by using dry shampoo a couple of times a week, I’ve cut the times that I have to wash my hair in half each week. That means I have more time to spend on other things.
How do you bring balance to your day?
