She Makes It Look So Easy
Ever look at someone else and think, “She’s got it all together. Must be nice,” and feel like your work life balance doesn’t measure up?
We all do it.
Recently I was asked to write a Work Life Balance article for Speaker Magazine (a publication from the National Speakers Association). While honored, I struggled a bit with writing it. So many articles on the topic of balance or wellness make it seem simple… Just do a few things on a list and BINGO you achieve balance. That isn’t my experience, and I don’t think I’m alone.
Which is why my article begins like this:
From the outside, my life and work may appear balanced. I have a successful speaking career, happy marriage, lovely twin daughters, and good health. The truth is, however, my life is a molecule away from chaos at any given moment. Every day requires weighing the demands on my time and energy. A successful career demands attention. Marriage requires work, energy and time. Teenage girls are, well, teenage girls. And my health? That is a work in progress.
It’s your turn.
What are your challenges in maintaining your health and finding balance?
Is Work-Life Balance a myth?
