Ashley,

This is brilliant. It’s all about balance, at the end of the day. And remembering that we are individuals as much as anyone around us.

I know that seems wild to think we can forget about our own self and the value of connecting with our selves and our needs, but, for me anyway, a gentle reminder is just what I need. “Self, you are a person too. You have needs as well.”

I love the idea of striking a balance between the extremes though. That truly resonates for where I’m at in my own journey. I am one of those early riser types, but I derive genuine satisfaction from my morning routine and process.

But I’m also the guy that likes taking time off to watch some junk TV or take a walk as well. Mental and physical health combined with early morning routine and productivity. Balance.

Fantastic post, thanks for sharing!
