When life gets a bit hectic.

Who feels like the days are just too full and too fast? If you are like us, you probably find yourself juggling a busy work and family schedule with personal pursuits (running/hiking/active living). Some periods of time, being consistent might feel like Sisyphus rolling a boulder up the hill, only for it to roll back down the following period. Finding balance is not only possible, but essential for overall well-being.

We find prioritizing our schedules is helpful to remain committed to our goals. We aim to treat our training sessions as non-negotiable appointments that are equally important to our lives. By blocking out time each day and sticking to it as much as possible, it is amazing how many consistent days we stitch together by the year-end review. Sometimes this requires embracing flexibility and creativity: like celebrating the days when you are just able to get out the door-- even if you don't hit that goal. A wise friend of ours always reminds that "mood follows actions" and some days that "lift in mood" is the only gift we need.

Plan ahead when you can. Prepare your gear and essentials the night before if that is a barrier or excuse in a morning rush. Try to remind yourself that your commitment to active living is a powerful tool for stress relief and mental clarity. When you feel discouraged, take comfort that a bunch of tiny victories throughout the year build a base that allows you to enjoy the perfect days shared on trail with others.
