friday feature {life with amberly and joe}

we all know i love love love bloggy friends. i'm super excited to have one here today. amberly and i met through the blog world and finally met IRL at a blogger meetup recently. take it away...

Hello friends, I'm Amberly and I'm excited that Aubrey has invited me to take over her blog today! My blog Life with Amberly and Joe is all about our lives as a married couple. I love to make date night bucket lists, set goals that help me be a better wife, share our secrets to making money a happy topic, and tell the story of how we came to be. I'd love to be your bloggy friend, so please stop by and introduce yourself, after you read this post of course!
I have a really busy schedule with not a lot of time to just relax and enjoy life. With a full time job, a Saturday job, almost full time school hours, a blog that I love to keep up and the normal day to day responsibilities, I am always on the run. It's easy for me to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and forget to take time for myself. I'm sure a lot of you can relate to the worn down, stressed out, overwhelmed feeling that I get far too often. I have to prioritize and decide what's most important to me and usually the thing that ends up at the bottom of my list is my health and my sanity.
Over the last few years I've learned that I have to make time for myself. I may have a million things going on, due dates galore and people asking me for favors, but me time is needed every day! At least a couple of times a week, I try to do something that makes me happy and relieves stress. It's a great way to unwind and helps me remember what I love and what's important to me!
Some of my favorite things to do during me time include:
  • Bubble baths with a good book
  • Watching a chick flick and drinking hot chocolate
  • Going for a long run/walk to my favorite music
  • Date night with my husband
  • A craft project
  • An hour at the piano, singing my favorite songs
  • Taking a long nap
  • Making and eating my favorite treat
  • Coloring, playdoh, bubbles
  • Planning vacations, date nights, parties, etc.
When life gets too crazy and you're feeling overwhelmed, take some time for yourself! Do something that makes you happy and forget about all of your responsibilities for a while. It may seem like the easiest thing to put off, but your sanity and happiness is really the most important thing, as selfish as that may sound. I know from personal experience that working yourself too hard and never taking a break can affect your health as well.
What are your favorite me time activities?
Where are you most happy?
i am so bad at this. i always say i'm a chronically busy person. this is such a good reminder to take a little time to myself. thanks so much amberly.
