"Remember that the fun, independent girl that you were when you met your SO is who he fell in love with. It's all about making the time for your girlfriends (even when you don't have the time) and remembering that your SO loves you for having your own life!" — onlysourcherry
"Getting a workout in first thing starts my day off right — yoga, running, or hitting the gym! If I am active at 6 a.m., my whole day is better!" — jessvogel85
"Since I don't live close to my family, I schedule phone dates weekly. I schedule workout time with friends to kill two birds with one stone. "Me" time is right before I go to bed and read a good book!" — erinesweeney
"I keep balanced by taking a fifteen minute timeout when I get home work to give myself a little "me time." This helps me relax and unwind from the stressful workday and focus on some pure happiness. I love to wake up in the morning and go for a run to wake up alert and ready to go and focus on the good things that the day will bring." — stef42678
"I always park in the back of the parking lot; a long walk in the morning is a good way to wake up and clear my head. I always take the stairs; pushing my heart rate up, even in the office! I never let myself get lazy; walking to a coworker's desk instead of emailing, walking to get lunch instead of driving. Fresh air as much as possible is usually the best policy." — hyacinthgirl

"Instead of making drastic changes which are hard to stick to in the long run, I do little easy things that all add up like taking the stairs, walking wherever possible, drinking water instead of juices and cold drinks; cooking instead of ordering food. Balance isn't about deprivation it's about enjoying good wholesome food, being active and indulging every now and then guilt-free . . . and yoga!" — zc
