Like many people, I have a busy life. I have a busy job, and so does my wife. We have very active (dance, soccer, hockey etc) 8-year-old twins. We often find ourselves shuttling kids, going to meetings and spending our evenings running. I’m not complaining, and I know I’m not alone – I pass many other families on the road.
That said, we still make family (down) time a priority. We will take at least one day on a weekend and have no plans, spend time together and take the day as it comes. It is a great chance to reconnect and decompress for the upcoming week.
I also find that I need some time to myself, just for me, a way to reconnect to myself. I find the best way to do that is mountain biking. I think the video below explains why better than I ever could.
What is your escape? Where is your balance? Please don’t say it is watching the Canucks…there is nothing relaxing about that!
