We are 15 days into the new year and I’ve implemented what I learned from 2015 to create a more focused to balanced life. This means i’ve gotten creative with my time and family meals made in 30min or less have gained me more time with the family.
Gone are the days where I sat and wished for a balanced life. The reality is balance only comes after you plan for that life. And you can’t have a plan without specific focus. Right? I’m doing things a little different this 2016! I wear many hats from being a mom, a wife, and of course myself. My brain is now focused on thinking and making space for things to apply under family, work, and self-care!
I started planning my year to be more purposeful and soon realized I love themes! Every month in my planner I have a focus words to keep me on track especially with the extra things I like to get into. For January, my focus word is THRIVE! I want to thrive in at least one of each of my life roles.
For family, I want to be more present. I want to cook more but also spend more time with the family. This goes hand in hand because I can spend more time with the family if I plan my family meals with 3 things in mind; make ahead, quick and easy, and 30-mins or less!
So today I’m sharing some of my go to recipes that have allowed me to be more present with my family.
