What does “helping women find balance” mean anyway?
In this blog, I want to explore balance, hope, and healing in your life. More specifically, in this post, I will explore how women can begin to find balance in their lives as it relates to their many roles, responsibilities, and relationships. Once women grasp the complexity of their roles, responsibilities, and relationships, we will explore how these intertwine with the well-being of your mind, body, and soul.
This is so important because as you will soon see, all things matter, and all things are connected! When you find yourself overwhelmed or anxious, responding in your current relationships to past traumas, or struggling with mood, sleeping and eating patterns, it is important to equip yourself with the understanding of what resources are out there to help you navigate the journey.
This could mean considering mental health counseling, nutritional counseling support, spiritual mentoring, lifestyle coaching, or things like neurofeedback.
The first thing I want to bring to attention is the idea of balance.
Let’s face it, Ladies, if you wear enough hats, eventually you will lose balance!
This is an important concept for both men and women, but I hope you will stay with me because I want to specifically explore how this pertains to the complex juggling feat so many women pull off every day without even thinking about it, and the connection between those with lives that are out of balance, in any area, and how this leads to a cascade effect where everything else suffers.
The first step is helping women slow down enough to consider all the amazing roles, responsibilities, and relationships they actually manage in a day! In this face-paced achievement-driven world, women do not often consider all that they are already doing! Yet, this realization can eventually lead to a realistic view of your successes and some potential growing edges.
I want to speak to the women out there who may not even realize all the roles, responsibilities, and relationships that they are managing. Seriously how many hats do you wear on a daily basis?
Do you know which hats you actually need to wear, want to wear, and how to wear them well? Have you taken a moment to consider this and how amazing you already are?
I also want to speak to the women out there who are not only managing many roles, responsibilities, and relationships, but they are doing it while carrying a history of trauma, maybe chronic illness, self-doubt, grief, or a sense of failure, maybe because of the lies that were spoken over you by others in your past.
