A personal update & keeping a work, life balance

Recently I feel like I never have a spare moment. My diary is constantly full of things to do or places to be, I’m not complaining as I’d much rather be busy than bored! Often I find myself mentally double booking and if it wasn’t for my diary (which comes everywhere) then I definitely would. I’d never ever remember my ever changing work shifts, who or what time to be somewhere.. I’d be hopeless!

Arranging myself around work, the gym, friends, family and blogging can be so difficult at times. Living near my best friend Tallulah means that we often get together for a gym session, catch-up or even our bake on.

I like to plan as much as I can in advance otherwise time seems to fly by and I forget to do the things I really want to! I guess you could say I’m lucky to work in the same building as Andy, but it doesn’t mean we see each other all the time. We have one day that we nearly always see each other but otherwise we just have to find the time.

I find blogging the hardest thing to fit in, especially when I have SO many ideas! I end up fitting it in between shifts or like when I wrote this post passing the time between work and going to a blogging event. Either that or I get some inspiration just before I’m about to fall asleep.. so obviously I have to write my thoughts down as often that’s when I come up with the best ideas.

The hardest part of all is achieving a balance between all of this, seeing family too and having some me time when I get a chance. I often feel guilty when I have me time because there’s so much I could be doing and then I think that sometimes relaxing is more important than going out or writing. 

Since blogging I’ve learnt to enjoy looking after myself as self care is very important and we can become so busy that we don’t reflect on life and enjoy what is going on around us.

So really my work, life balance isn’t perfect but I’m pretty happy where I’m at!

Thank you for reading!

Love Saff x

    We’re definitely on the same boat when it comes to feeling like we don’t have a spare moment. Always so busy busy busy. Never feel guilty for having some me time. You deserve some time to yourself too
