Chasing Sanity

This has been an eventful year so far! A trip to London for the RARE18 London signing, which was INCREDIBLE, my latest book has been out a while and I'm well into another one, the podcast has been so fun and is staying booked months out, my puppy keeps me on my toes, I have two teenagers now instead of one, my music world with my husband is busy and fulfilling ... life is wonderful and chaotic.

I thought I'd tell you five things I do to stay sane.

*EAT healthy food, typically vegetarian or once in a while pescetarian, and track it all on My Fitness Pal to make sure I'm getting the nutrition I need and staying within a certain caloric range.

*WALK as much as possible. Sometimes I forget to have my Fitbit on while doing it (or it's on but has been dead for days, ugh) but I love when it's working and I can track that too.

*SLEEP. If you follow me on Facebook, you know I've given up coffee, which was a heartbreaking decision to make. I'm still mourning the loss. I thought it might be the reason I never slept well and sadly, I was right. For the first time in over a decade, I sleep through the night. Life-changing.

*LAUGH my head off as much as possible. It's not hard with my son around.

*WRITE all the emotion out. If I've done all of the things above, it's easier for me to do that. I was stuck for a while and I think a lot of it was just exhaustion and being unhealthy.

I'd love to hear how you stay sane when your life is crazy.
