One of the largest challenges in life is finding that necessary balance between all the different aspects of life: work, play, education, hobbies, health, etc. Living with Type 1 Diabetes complicates this balancing act by requiring constant attention, and heavily weighting the commitment required for maintaining the health portion of one’s life.
As much as it is true that when living with Type 1 Diabetes you can still do whatever you want to do, it is crucial that you also take the time to deal with all the daily responsibilities to maintain the best health possible. For me this has meant taking a break from writing recently to focus not only on my training for rugby but also my education and work.
Now that I’ve set a good baseline for both and gotten into a good rhythm I’ll be returning to writing here at Zen Diabetes regularly. I’ll be focusing not only on the topics of living day to day with diabetes, but also my own personal experiences in training for a demanding sport and maintaining blood sugar control and consistency along the way.
