What happened to those New Years Resolutions? All too often they seem to fade away like the morning mist at sunrise. In years past I have resolved to start a new work out routine, drink more water, eat healthier snacks, yada, yada, yada. But by February this resolve is severely waning and by March it’s completely off the radar. I’ve decided to change it up this New Year.
This year I decided to ditch those same old same olds. Those old resolutions that I probably won’t keep for too long. I have decided to replace them with a focus on living a more balanced life.
For many of us, trying to maintain balance in life feels a little like walking a tightrope. Most of us have so many demands on our time and energy. Life often feels like a three-ring circus, leaving little time to invest in a healthy marriage.
Take this quiz to see how well you are meeting responsibilities, while also recognizing and fulfilling your needs and the needs of your relationship.
True or False
____ 1. The only way I can successfully manage my life is to take care of myself physically and emotionally.
____2. Nurturing myself enlarges my capacity to have a healthier marriage.
____ 3. I set aside personal, quiet time for myself, whether I’m meditating, journalling, or simply allowing myself time to daydream.
____4. Creativity is nurturing. I take time to do what I love, whether that’s cooking, drawing, fishing, photography or anything that brings magic to my soul.
If you answered false to any of these questions see if you can incorporate something of its message into your life in the New Year.
Remember, you can’t give what you don’t have. A healthy marriage starts with a healthy you!
So this year let’s resolve to stress less, accomplish more, and take exciting new steps toward healthier relationships!
