How to Be Happy When You're Busy: Everything in Moderation

Updated: Sep 24, 2022

Free yourself from a restrictive way of living by applying moderation to everything you do.

Is moderation the key to a happy, healthy life?

I don’t diet. I don’t strain myself during workouts. I don’t work myself to the core. Anymore.

I’ve been there, done that (what working mom hasn’t?), and I’ve found this to be a restrictive way of living.

Where is the freedom if there is no moderation?

Too many restrictive, self-imposed rules did not set me up for happiness and health. So I had to redirect course with the everything-in-moderation approach: Not too much. Not too little. Just right. I apply this to pretty much everything. Some examples:

  • Working

  • Sleeping

  • Eating

  • Exercising

  • Drinking water

  • Spending money

You get the gist.

Moderation, I’ve found, is the closest thing I can get to balance.

It’s the key to getting things done while also enjoying little moments that make life big.

Practice It: Practice Moderation This Week

Use the everything-in-moderation approach for something in your life. Write about it first. What would it look like? How would it feel? What would it change? Then try it. I want to hear how it goes! Send me a note on Instagram @JulieGtheYogi.
