Now that's out of the way, I should prob explain why I've been MIA!
About a week ago, I produced a huge event for work -- #BlogHer18 Health, where about 1,000 health & wellness social media influencers joined us for 2 days. And it has been ALL consuming.
It's extremely hard for me to do anything a little bit. If I'm going to spend my time on something, I'm generally all in.
So by the time this incredible experience was over, I was sick (isn't it ironic?), my feet were full of blisters, I'd neglected my friends and family (and YOU), there was zero food left in my fridge, and my apartment was in a shambles.
The good news is it was a really great event, and I'm SO proud of my team who pulled it off.
But one thing is clear: I need some balance. I think they call it "self care" -- that phrase makes me barf. But there's def a middle ground that I'm missing.
Do YOU have any suggestions for still having a life while making a living? I'll take whatever tips or tricks you've got in the comments below.
And while you think, take a look at these pretty pics... I wish you could have been there!
