As a single mom I live a VERY busy life. I travel fairly regularly, I run and exercise to stay in shape, I of course take care of my child and I’m an entrepreneur. For me it is never a matter of not having enough on my plate but trying to figure out how to get it all done! One of the things that I pride myself on is my personal belief in “everything in moderation” which is why when I was asked to be a Good Life Guru for Hershey’s Moderation Nation I jumped at the opportunity!
On the website I write my suggestions for living a balanced lifestyle which for me includes juggling a busy work schedule and family life but also carving out time o enjoy life. I work hard and I play hard! I have absolutely no qualms about indulging in things I enjoy as long as I “do it in moderation!” This of course includes enjoying Hershey’s Dark chocolate! Did you know dark chocolate is good for you and actually having a piece daily is good for your health! Although I don’t eat chocolate daily when I do I am perfectly okay and don’t feel any guilt. You must enjoy staying healthy and depravation only leads to over-indulgence which is antithetical to healthy living. I am making a lifestyle choice not jumping on a “diet” wagon.
Next week I will be co-hosting a twitter party with Self Magazine! I have been reading Self for longer than I can remember but I know it has been well over a decade!
