9 Ways to Find Balance in Your Life as a Busy Mom

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com.

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

So, as you've probably noticed around here - my life is totally different as a parent. I thought before I had D that I'd still write about all kinds of things lifestyle related, but you can pretty much tell as you scroll through... I spend all my time mom-ing now. Taking care of baby business and basically living the life of a toddler's snack chef is my 24/7 - I'm not complaining though, this is the life I've always dreamed of. Delainey truly is a blessing and I'm so thankful to get to spend all my time with her.

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

With that said, I've had to learn to make time for myself too. I'm learning to master the art of balance in my life, in more ways than one really. It's been a struggle over the past year or so, but now that D's nearly 13 months, I'm starting to get the hang of things... maybe? She's teaching me lessons at the same time I'm trying to teach her about life, it's a balancing act in itself and one that'll be a lifelong thing - that's what parenthood really is, after all.

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

Ultimately, finding "me" time and still making more than enough time for her is my goal. I've been trying to do more for me, without taking away from her... so I've been practicing yoga a little more with her as my partner, meditating as much as possible while embracing her wild and crazy noisy self, and contemplating ways we all can work on balancing our lives - hence today's post.

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

There's no coincidence I started this new balanced lifestyle in September either, it's National Yoga Month - which means I'm not just trying to balance my life, but I'm working on my "yoga-game" lately as well and trying to find more balance there. The thing is, yoga isn't just an awesome way to build physical balance, it's a great way to center your mind and find balance mentally as well. Are you wanting to find more balance in your life? Here's my list, inspired by my most recent Peace, Love, and Yoga Babbleboxx goodies:

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

1. Flow - While drinking plenty of water is one important way to maintain balance in your life, the way I'm addressing flow today is more in the manner of "going with the flow". While practicing yoga, listen to your body. When you're having a rough day, try not to sweat the small stuff. Let things roll off your back, instead of worrying about every detail, and you'll soon discover, life is much happier this way.

2. Hard Work -  When we have a million voices screaming at us to quit, it's easy to give up... but the thing is - quitting won't get us anywhere.



Whether it's anxious thoughts overwhelming you while prepping for a gym session, the thought of needing to quit while in a tough yoga pose, or the overwhelming urgency of needing to eat making you desperate to break your diet, there's no need to "quit". Hard work always pays off, in your thoughts, in the gym, while practicing yoga, and even when you stick to a tough diet.

With that said, making sure you are getting enough protein as a momma on the go can be tough. Check out how you can ensure your body stays nourished with Ascent Protein — The Official Sponsor of Hard Work. Coming in flavors like chocolate, vanilla bean, and lemon sorbet, I'm always craving these and love being able to make sure my body is getting what it needs, easily in yummy shake form!

3.  Escape - I know I'm not the only one that just needs an escape every once in a while. It's not even just limited to a "mom thing". So when I find a book I just love, I have to share. Plus this one is a #1 New York Times Best Seller & one of Oprah's Book Club Selections in 2016, so you know it's good.
Love Warrior is a painfully honest book written by Glenn Doyle Melton, about life, about love, about trusting. We are all born to be warriors and this women's memoir is a reminder that we all are powerful, capable, and brave enough to fight for what we want. At the same time, it's super raw and open, about everything. If you're looking for a gripping book, you know, the type with little bits so well-phrased and interesting that you highlight the pages... this is it.

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

4. Energize - Kombucha is something I've loved since I tried it, not only because it's healthy... but it's actually super tasty! I love trying new foods and I'll try anything once, but the first time I sipped kombucha, I knew it was a life-long love type of thing.

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

With that said, KeVita Master Brew kombucha has me feeling the same way. Fermented with a kombucha tea culture, has live probiotics, organic acids, organic caffeine (hellllllooooooooo life source), and it's also verified non-alcoholic!

I try to limit myself on kombucha since D is nursing still but I can't wait to try all the invigorating flavors! With options ranging from pineapple peach to root beer, they have kombucha everyone will love.

5. Nourish - On the same yummy note, B.O.S.S. Bars are a new family favorite! With amazing flavor combinations and premium, all raw ingredients. These are "treats" I don't have to hide from Delainey when I'm snacking... but sometimes I sneak away for a second anyways, just to savor the flavor and treat myself, without having to share! LOL.

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

Why do I love these so much? With paleo flavors like Dazzle, Think, Move, Smile, what's not to love? I think so far we have enjoyed the 'Smile' bar the most, although they all are delicious gluten-free snacks. Which flavor catches your interest the most?

6. Sweeten - Some days, life just needs a little sweetness added to it. The most recent addition to the In the Raw sweeteners, NEW Organic Stevia In The Raw is the best way to add that bit of sweetness without worrying about GMOs. This natural sweetener is my favorite way to make sure my espresso tastes just right... and since it comes in tiny little packets, I take it everywhere with me.

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

7. Freshen - Let's be honest, some days we don't have time to take multiple showers... but chasing these babies around definitely makes us feel a little heated alllllll day long. Or is that just me? Either way, I sometimes feel the need to freshen up mid-day... and when I don't have the time to take an all out shower, I reach for Simply Summer's Eve Cleansing cloths. These little handy-dandy personal care wipes help balance your natural pH and wipe away unwanted, odor causing bacteria - the perfect way to make sure your lady bits stay fresh, no matter how active you are! 

8. Switch Perspective - Life really is all about perspective, trying to find the positive in every situation is really the best way to look at things - in my eyes, anyways. No pun intended. The thing is, that isn't always easy. When things get rough, it's best to allow yourself to be upset for a moment. Then push past it and find a way to look at it differently.

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

When baby is throwing a fit and all you want to do is cry with her, instead sit down, get on her eye level and start to play. I almost guarantee that little shift in your behavior will alter her behavior as well. Life really is all about how you look at it, so try and enjoy every moment and find the good in it all. Some days it's nice to take things in from an admiring 1 year old's stance, she definitely makes the mundane seem interesting and the boring seem bright... and what is there not to love about that?!

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

9. Embrace - On that note, learning to embrace the crazy, the long nights, the crying, and the tough moments has probably been my biggest struggle as a parent. Therefore, it's where I've had to work at balancing life the most since D's arrival. I can honestly say I'm still working on embracing it all, but I try and take it all in now. I find balance in embracing all parts of our daily life by trying to remind myself she's only little once, regardless of how tough she can be.

Today I'm sharing nine ways you can attempt to find balance in your life as a busy mom - from embracing the silly to meditating through the craziness, this is balance in motherhood.

Even on my busiest of days, I love the moments she needs me. When I'm struggling to get things done, I still love when she just wants mama snuggles and nothing else will do.... and when she only laughs at me and nothing else can make her giggle, those are the moments I'll always cherish. I feel honored that she loves me so much, with this extravagant, over-the-top, adoring type of love... and the thing is, I somehow love her so much more than that.


So tell me, how do you embrace parenthood? How have you achieved balance in your life as a parent? ...or if you're still navigating through the first few years of parenthood (like me), be sure to leave me some input on how you're managing to balance your life right now! Also, be sure to check out all the goodies I shared today, for your chance to refresh, sweeten, and nourish your soul.

10 Things Mindful People Do Differently



1. Nourish your body - Fuel your body with what it needs - sleep well, eat well, love well.

2. Don't always listen to yourself - Don't believe everything you think and don't ever take your thoughts too seriously. On that same note it's okay to listen to that inner voice, just don't let it hold you back from living.

3. Challenge your mindset - Don't get stuck in a rut. Try new things, do crosswords, read books, try to learn a new language. Keep your mind active and always be willing to listen to new ideas.

4. Laugh at yourself - It's okay to be ditzy, it's alright if you tripped in public... things happen. Mindful people know this and they let it go and learn to laugh, even when it's hard.

5. Don't avoid emotions, share your feelings and work through them - While mindful people laugh at their mistakes, they also own their sadness, their anger, etc. Be sure to voice your frustrations, hurts, and other emotional feelings in a productive way and work through them.

6. Listen with concentration to those around you - Intently listening will open so many doors, whether it's a new friendship or a business adventure - be sure to listen to those around you and be present.

7. Slow down and absorb information - Instead of rushing through life, checking notifications constantly, and speed reading each book you check out from the library - take some time to "smell the roses" as it were and allow yourself to slow down and enjoy life.

8. Stay curious - Spend time outdoors, do science experiments, and be a silly amount of curious at all times. Life should be fun so go down the less taken path and enjoy it.

9. Be aware that all things come and go and accept that fact - This may be the hardest part of being mindful for me. Knowing that things come and go allows you to accept life as it is and this makes living mindfully so much easier.

10. Allow yourself to take a break - While living mindfully is important, so is taking a break. It's okay to check out, turn your phone off, try not to think of anything, and just spend time in a quiet room meditating... it's actually what mindfully living is all about.

So tell me, do you live "mindfully"? I'd love to hear your intentional behaviors that help you to leave a more mindful life! Let 'em at me in the comments below!

How I Energize and Revitalize My Mind & Body: My Morning Routine




Today has been all about the day of love so it probably doesn't surprise you that I want to share a few things I really have been loving lately! If you read the last post you found out we're expecting and with that news has come a new sleep pattern for me. My new sleep pattern means I'm falling asleep way earlier than I used to and that obviously means I've become more of a morning person...

Are you wanting to provide your body with a natural boost of energy and start each and every day out on the right foot? Check out my morning routine..

With my new found love of mornings, I've found a balanced routine I like to practice almost every day. It's just nice to start your day out with revitalizing and energizing activities... and well, I think my little morning routine is just perfect.

Are you wanting to provide your body with a natural boost of energy and start each and every day out on the right foot? Check out my morning routine..

My favorite part of waking each morning now is knowing that I'll soon be sipping on a delicious glass of Lipton Tea. With their huge variety of new, delicious flavors including my favorites - New Berry Hibiscus herbal tea, Improved Orange Passionfruit Jasmine tea, and the New Irresistible Lady Lipton tea, it's hard to decide which flavor I want each morning so I tend to have a glass before and after my routine!

Are you wanting to provide your body with a natural boost of energy and start each and every day out on the right foot? Check out my morning routine..

It's so delicious, I just can't pass it up! These new, refreshing flavors put a great spin on the standard "tea time" expectation, creating an exciting and unique experience. Each type of tea offering it's own distinct flavor and still complimenting my breakfast of cookies so perfectly, what more could a girl ask for?

Are you wanting to provide your body with a natural boost of energy and start each and every day out on the right foot? Check out my morning routine..

While I'm sipping on my favorite tea of the day, I also like journaling. Sometimes I bullet journal to try and get my thoughts gathered all in one place. Allowing my journal to remind me of important things I need to accomplish and sometimes just reminding myself to stay positive. This is a hobby that I think everyone should start, tea while journaling is pretty much soul food.

Are you wanting to provide your body with a natural boost of energy and start each and every day out on the right foot? Check out my morning routine..


After I finish up a cup of tea and a little journaling, I like to practice these 8 yoga poses to make sure my body is feeling energized, revitalized, and ready to take on anything the day has to offer. Once you start practicing each morning, it becomes an addictive and satisfying habit!

I usually begin with a little meditation while sitting in half lotus, preparing my mind and body for the day and for my yoga practice.

Half Sun Salutation is normally my next move in my yoga sequence, allowing my body to awaken and feel completely at peace.

Next I like to provide my body with a sense of power and strength by stepping into Warrior II.

Coming into triangle pose just feels natural and since it's a restorative pose, it's beneficial to practice daily.

After spending some time in triangle pose, I love slipping into a side plank, testing my body slightly and encouraging it to find strength and balance from within.

Now I like to give my body a little break and get into a pose that always feels like I'm lounging, the bridge pose is like a baby back bend and instantly relieves pressure and stress for me.

Next I like to flip over and practice cat/cow a  little, allowing my face to relax and really embracing the small stretch I feel.

Last on my list of daily yoga moves is high crescent lunge, allowing my chest to really open and feel the stretch and preparing my mind for a day full of energy.

Are you wanting to provide your body with a natural boost of energy and start each and every day out on the right foot? Check out my morning routine..

So tell me, after learning a bit more about how I spend my mornings... do you want to try my daily morning routine yourself? I guarantee you'll feel more energized and revitalized all day long after a little yoga, journaling, and tea! If you already have your own thing going, I'd love to hear how you like to start your mornings out on the right foot? Also, if you are wanting to start having tea time in the AM be sure to check out the full line-up of Lipton Green, Black and Herbal tea here.

A Daily Yoga Challenge + Why I Love Confused Girl Leggings!

Confused Girl sent over a pair of leggings to facilitate today's post,
regardless all opinions expressed below are mine alone!


Everyone needs a pair of yoga pants as comfortable as these, especially when they are inspired by healing crystals! Get all the details... http://www.confusedgirlinthecity.com

This time last year, I had just finished hosting a yoga challenge - the Everybody Yoga challenge, to be exact. It was a daily, picture sharing, yoga challenge on Instagram and boy, was it an amazing and trying experience. The 30 day challenge I hosted in 2014 was the last time I practiced yoga on a regular daily basis, for an extended period... and that, my friends, is a bummer and is going to change starting now.

I may not be able to fit an entire hour long yoga class into my daily routine but I'm going to start adding in a few poses before I get my day started and before I lay down in bed in the evening. This won't be a publicized challenge though, my practice will be all for me and I encourage you to do the same.

Everyone needs a pair of yoga pants as comfortable as these, especially when they are inspired by healing crystals! Get all the details... http://www.confusedgirlinthecity.com

I want this "daily yoga challenge" to help us all feel more grounded and aware, to help us connect with our surroundings and live in the moment, while also helping us remain calm and balanced. Yoga is capable of changing your view of the world, I know this much... you might as well let it by practicing daily, is my new philosophy.

Everyone needs a pair of yoga pants as comfortable as these, especially when they are inspired by healing crystals! Get all the details... http://www.confusedgirlinthecity.com

Practicing headstands, backbends, or simply meditating - my body needs the zen aspects of yoga and wants to feel the stretch. I'm so ready to get the yoga ball rolling, metaphorically and literally.

Everyone needs a pair of yoga pants as comfortable as these, especially when they are inspired by healing crystals! Get all the details... http://www.confusedgirlinthecity.com


The thing is, I lost so much weight over the past year or so that none of my work out clothes really fit me anymore. Trust me, I'm not complaining... but I do need new yoga gear to practice in and that's where Confused Girl and their Crystal Inspired leggings come into play.

Everyone needs a pair of yoga pants as comfortable as these, especially when they are inspired by healing crystals! Get all the details... http://www.confusedgirlinthecity.com

These gorgeous leggings are the perfect pair to get back into my groove in, the patterns made from images taken of a Gold Agate Crystal. It's like I'm practicing natural healing just by wearing these beauties, especially since Agate enhances creativity and is shown to strengthen intellect - making the pair perfect for this blogger, student, and artist...

Not only are these a groovy-looking and feeling pair of leggings, they are actually comfortable. With 4 way stretch, I don't feel squeezed into them but like they are a second skin - which is an important distinction when choosing yoga pants. They're also eco-friendly, made out of water based ink, made in the USA (in LA to be exact), and totally machine washable... What more could you ask for in a pair of leggings?

Everyone needs a pair of yoga pants as comfortable as these, especially when they are inspired by healing crystals! Get all the details... http://www.confusedgirlinthecity.com

How about a story to go with the brand name? Confused Girl may make you question the brand... who wants to buy from someone confused? Well, the statement behind the name is beautiful and makes me want to buy every single crystal-inspired color of these leggings... As Giovanna, the founder of the company says, “It is really easy to accept yourself when you are feeling good and your life is the way you want it. But it isn’t so easy to accept yourself when things are tough and you are confused. We shame ourselves in times we need to be embracing ourselves.” Confused Girl is about accepting yourself just as you are at this moment.

Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!


It's true... I'll admit that I've been known to be the girl that sits out during sporty activities and I've been hit in the face by things that were thrown at me... So I may not be the definition of athletic, but I am always working to maintain my fitness! Whether I'm trying to get my zen on while practicing yoga or sneaking in some cardio after a busy day running errands, I try to make sure I live a healthy lifestyle.

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!
{like these fun, funky leggings? be on the lookout for a post about how awesome they are later this week!}

Today I want to share 10 ways to keep your mind and your body healthy and happy... I practice all of these habits and if you don't already, you should too! Everyone deserves to live a happy, healthy life and these 10 simple steps will get you there in no time...

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

1. Choose Wisely - This is a simple step but one of the hardest to take, to live a healthy lifestyle one has to choose foods that fuel your body. Foods like vegetables, fruits, proteins, etc are what your body really needs, while carbs, fats, and sugars should only be eaten in moderation. I love shopping for my fruit and veggies at Walmart, they always have great deals on my favorites!

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

2. Elevate Your Daily Routine - This is another simple step, but this one is an easy adjustment. You must take vitamins every single day... I'm not a fan of the pill form of vitamins so I buy the gummy versions, no matter which kind you buy - just be sure to take the correct dosage every single day.

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

3. Monitor Your Activity - Heart Rate Monitors are a great way to make sure that you are burning a healthy amount of calories and/or taking the right amount of steps in a day to maintain or lose weight. I love my my HRM so much and I bet if you invest in one, you will love yours too!

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

4. Keep Things Zen - Lay out a yoga mat, put in a meditation or trance cd, and allow yourself to unwind. Let go of your worries and allow peace to fill your mind and body - this is the key to true happiness and pure health, in my opinion. A healthy, balanced mind leads to a healthy, balanced body!

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

5. Allow Yourself Some Me Time - Do you! Go shopping, make some awesome crafts, ride horses, or pretend your a mermaid in your neighborhood pool... whatever your heart desires! Just make sure you have time to take care of yourself and treat yourself to something you love to do!

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

6. Don't Obsess Over Numbers - Scales aren't the only place to achieve a healthy lifestyle victory, pay attention to the way your clothes fit or even just the amount of energy you gain - both of these factors are benefits of a healthy, happy lifestyle and definitely something to smile about!

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

7. Stay Young at Heart - Eat heart healthy foods and do cardio! Working your heart and making sure it isn't working too hard are two things that are incredibly important to your health!

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

8. Keep Things Clean - A clean house means more than a happy home, it means a healthy home which leads to healthy body. Make sure to clean counter tops, dust, sweep, and mop regularly so that your immune system isn't always battling your environment.

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

9. Drink Plenty of Aqua - This one is obvious but most of us are guilty of not getting enough water in each day! Grab nice, refillable water bottle next time your at Walmart and challenge yourself to drink 5 or more bottles in a day, everyday!

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

10. Motivate Yourself to Succeed- Buy a few items of clothing a size smaller than what you currently wear or keep an item in mind that you will buy to reward yourself when you hit a certain goal. This is a great way to motivate yourself, plus you get double the benefits once your goal is reached, you've achieved something and you also get a special treat!

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

Now that I've shared 10 ways to keep healthy, I have some awesome news to share! Walmart is hosting America's Biggest Health Fair on October 10th (10/10) to promote healthy lifestyles for everyone!
