Balance | Lean and Green Body® Blog

It can be difficult to make it all happen… and make it look effortless.

Run your household, run your business, go from meeting to meeting all with a smile on your face. It’s not always easy. Honestly, I am 100% living my dream. (somebody pinch me)

I am married to an incredible man, who is very successful in his own right, I run a thriving business that is growing by the day, and live 3 blocks from the beach. Amazing! (again..pinch me)

Even though this is the dream for me, I have been working hard for this life for over 30 years. It’s so easy to get caught up in the day to day that we (I) forget to appreciate how freaking amazing life is! We tend to get caught up in the rise and grind, the hustle of the daily life. Which for women can be very overwhelming at times. We are ingrained to have a do-it-all mentality.

That is why it is so important to find balance. Without some sort of balance in our lives, it is very difficult to make it all happen. 

We have to find time for our families, growing our career, taking care of our home, grocery shopping, cooking and meal prep, working out (regardless of what people say you are judged on how you appear)… oh, and wait… time for us. Why does that always come last? Why don’t we prioritize ourselves into that list? As women, why is it that we naturally put everyone before us? Are we not that important?

We are! I always tell my clients (and myself) that if we do not take care of ourselves, we can not take care of everyone else. 

This is where finding balance comes in!

Finding balance in your own life can be as simple as waking up an hour earlier to have solitude and quiet time for yourself. Or taking the dog for a beach walk after work. It can be meeting up with girlfriends for happy hour, or even taking the time to date your spouse. 

However you choose to find your balance, I honor you. It is never easy, but I promise it will be worth it.
