Finding a work/play balance in your active life is challenging. Here are some suggestions to help you discover your balance and begin living the ULTRA life:
Try your best. Whether it's at work, in the gym, or at home, strive for excellence, not perfection.
Pick your priorities. Family, work, friends, education - identify what matters most and decide how much you value each. Don't forget to include yourself on the list!
Stay active. Exercise is a key element in the balance equation. Schedule time for workouts and vary your routines to stay motivated.
Eat and Treat. Maintain a balanced diet but take one day to indulge. This way you can still enjoy your favorite treats.
Lighten up. Make time for activities that you enjoy - yoga, running, gardening, playing with your children - whatever brings you joy and relieves stress. Have some fun - you deserve it!
