How often do you push off your needs until “when you have the time?” An essential part of self-care is being empowered to reclaim that time. We want to support you in creating a lifestyle that allows for both productivity and prioritization of your wellbeing. Here are some ways to manifest the balance you deserve.
Define what balance means to you
Balance is deeply rooted in self-awareness; as a result, it looks different for every woman. You can decide what you need to make your life complete by listening to your emotions. Are you stressed, lonely, tired, or overwhelmed? Are you feeling unproductive and uninspired? Are you craving quality time with friends, or are you in desperate need of some alone time? These answers will reveal the missing pieces to your pursuit of harmony.
Make time for what you need
A healthy lifestyle is one that includes a mix of both obligation and rejuvenation. Such a lifestyle doesn’t come without planning. Once you’ve identified what areas are underserved in your life, you have the power to organize your plate to allow for the added self-care time they require. Furthermore, you can fill that time with activities that are much more impactful to you and your overall wellness.
Protect your balance
One of the most significant indicators of an imbalance in your life is that you put your needs last. Sis, your wellbeing is substantial enough to stop the world. We encourage you to prioritize you and be willing to saying no to anything that doesn’t allow you to.
Create some accountability
Share your needs with a spouse, family member, or friend who can help steer you back to center when life gets off balance. Make sure it’s someone you trust to give you space to meet your needs with or without them, whenever you need to, and guilt-free.
Own your journey
The goal of balance is to create lifelong joy, peace, and serenity. It is an ever-evolving phenomenon that may look different from season to season. Be flexible, as needs in your life will fluctuate. But think of it like a real scale; life can add weight on one side, but you’ll always have the power to tip the scale back in your favor.
