Balancing family, work and volunteering

Boomerang Bags at La Casa NostraA balanced life for me is a combination of family, work and volunteer work. I recently got involved with a very rewarding volunteer initiative called Boomerang Bags, I feel all powered up! It started in Australia but is now rapidly spreading all over the world.

In a nut shell, BB brings communities together sewing bags from recycled material to give back to the community to encourage people to stop using those pesky plastic bags.

Anyone can start a group, it can be as big as you or have your whole region involved, it’s totally up to you. What the project has taught me is that many people would like to do something for our environment and now have the perfect platform to do so. And whilst doing something amazing, they make new friendships, such a win-win for everyone.

I could now be doing a million other things but writing this post, but the following article really drew my attention and I started reading it.

If you are a mum or a workaholic I’d recommend you bookmark this article and reread it every month to remind you that no matter how crazy your day becomes you need to take breaks!

I knew deep down that taking breaks increases productivity but time and time again I get tempted to ‘just keep going’ until I ‘hit the wall’… not very sustainable.

So here goes… 6 Ways to Quickly Restore Sanity to Your Day by Sasha VanHoven.

Yum, yoghurt labels :-P

The most delicious job I’ve done to date 🙂 Check out the label design for the new 3 2 1 probiotic yoghurt from the House of Yoghurt. This Icelandic style yoghurt is packed with goodness.

Find them on the Mornington Peninsula markets (see the HoY FB page) or even better… get them delivered to your home! Yum!
