Life is about balance. We need balance in order to live a happy and healthy life. We need balance in our work life and home life, but when our lives get off track we no longer feel like we are moving forward. We stop doing things that make us happy, we neglect our needs, stop eating healthy and most things become chores instead of adventures. When we are in balance everything flows, life is easier and we are overall happier.
To help you get back on the right track here are five ways to introduce more balance into your life and get things going in the right direction.
When we don’t prioritize important things slip through the cracks and don’t get done.
Prioritizing and scheduling can be a great practice to start introducing more of a sense of balance to your life. We all have busy lives and long, never-ending to do lists. The only way to get everything done and find balance in our lives is by prioritizing what needs to be done when and scheduling our days.
The tricky part to this is deciding just what is important; in some cases, your work may take priority, but in others family or friends may take priority over your work on your to-do list. Only you can decide what is really important and what should be a priority in your schedule.
2) Set Goals
I talk about this all the time. Without a clear goal in mind we can easily get off track. Setting both long-term and short-term goals can prove to be incredibly helpful in achieving a balance in your life. It helps you keep your sights on what you want and what is truly important for you, avoiding all those shiny opportunities that seem great at the time but that actually only lead you further from your dreams. The short-term goals help you to track your progress as you work to achieve your long-term goals, and help you stay on track.
3) Set Your Schedule and Then Review It
Often we don’t know what will really work for us until we try. As an example lets say you decide you want to work longer hours Monday through Thursday to take off every Friday to spend time with your family. This sounds ideal, but it may not really be practical. Working longer plus the committing time may not leave you with enough time to get your household chores done or be home for homework. So if you do try a schedule and it doesn't work, don’t give up. Revise it. Could it be more feasible to take every other Friday off? Building they extra hours over a two week period instead of one? Tweak and revise your schedule until you find something that works with your life.
4) Find an Accountability Buddy
An accountability buddy is someone that holds you accountable for the goals you have made, the priorities you set, and the things you have said you wanted to do and accomplish. It ís easier to find balance and stick to your goals and schedule when you have someone to be accountable to that is also accountable to you.
Your relationship with your accountability buddy should be interactive and mutual or you could work with a coach.(like me). To help you stay on track and accountable.
5) Set Attainable Goals
For example, you can make your goal to win a Nobel prize in literature, or you can make it to be paid to writer. The latter is a more achievable goal that focuses on the process and journey more than the achievement or prize at the end. Anything is possible if you want it badly enough, but are you ready to make that level of commitment? If not then work on smaller, attainable goals now and you can always revise your long term goals later.
6) Remember It’s a Process
Life isn’t just about what you achieve, its about the journey. In order to achieve a proper balance, and get back on track you need to always keep in mind that this could be a constant struggle, at least until you learn the signals your are getting of course.
Everyone needs balance in order to live a happy and healthy life. Finding the proper balance in your life can be difficult, but it not impossible. Once you get back on track you will find it is well worth the effort.
I hope this article has helped to point you on the right path, towards a healthy balance in your life.

Do you know why Empaths have a unique pain and sadness to them?
While they experience everything more deeply than other people, could you imagine what its like to feel a strangers pain, fear, anger, or lust? Or what it’s like to be in a crowd of people, feeling their jumbled up minds? 😢
Feeling everyone’s emotions can easily be overwhelming and devastating for an Empaths health. Realzing that you can get past this is the 1st step.
If you know someone who needs support, I am here to help.
Healing isn't something you can schedule It comes in its own time and its own way, the best we can do is be open to the process.
Some days will be great, others not so much and this is natural.
Do what you need to do: journal, cry, meditate, go for a walk, practice yoga, or take a nap. Find someone to talk to. Be real and be honest with yourself. Up the water and try to eat better. Be present and show yourself compassion.
Allow yourself time and be gentler to yourself. Whatever you do, remember that this is a process, and it will get easier.

How do you feel about your life right this very moment?
Are you enjoy it? Are you fulfilling your passion? Or is it dreary and tough to get out of bed every morning?
In a perfect world, you would jump out of bed happy and energized, ready to tackle the day with ease. Your family would go off to school or work happy, your clients and co-workers would love everything you had to say, and you would see the passive income checks come in every day from your book sales, birds would sing and life would be grand!
Oaky, that's the perfect world, and mostly an illusion, but when your life is balanced, then your energy increases, you feel revitalized, and stressful situations don’t stop you in your tracks. In other words you can easily handle nosy co-workers, deadlines and traffic jams.
TCM (traditional Chinese medicine), teaches us every human body has an energy highway through which all energy flows. This flow of energy affects how we feel, how we think, and also affects our overall health. When there are no energy blockages, life is good and we can have a nearly perfect day. When we experience energy blockages due to stress, injury, trauma, poor diet, or other poor living conditions, our overall physical and mental health suffers dramatically.
Setting boundaries within your life (and this especially true for business owners) is the key to maintaining your energy’s balance. Your energy is also your spirit or your liveliness and when you take on too much work or have clients who don’t meld with your business philosophy, you become stressed, which dampens your energy, thus dampening your outlook on life.
So what can you do to re-balance your energy and also make sure this doesn't happen again? You begin by setting boundaries. (REAL boundaries you can stick with, that work with your life.) One of the fastest ways to accomplish this, is working one-to-one with a coach.
Because this is such a HUGE topic for so many people, I have designed a private VIP Day just to concentrate on this issue and get your energy flowing smoothly again. These one-to-one online days are custom designed to meet your needs and be completely life-changing in every way possible: mentally, physically, and spiritually. They are created with the focused intent on addressing issue you need support with.
If you want to take a massive leap in your perspective + happiness, cutting away months (or even years!) of frustration, false starts, and confusion – you’re in the right place.

If you are feeling overwhelmed and need help setting realistic boundaries, I'm here for you.
Deep spiritual cleaning isn't a popular topic. This type of healing involves touching pieces of yourself that can be terrifying. It's about truly facing yourself and finding your power by exploring the darkest corners of yourself, (real or imaginary) head-on.
These are the things we all shy away from. So let's be real here..no one enjoys examining their flaws and facing secret fears. Its tough to admit you have limitations, that you can be weak, petty, selfish, jealous, and hateful. But by admitting these feelings and finding the underlying cause you heal these issues and finally can be free from all the suffering these emotions cause.
These fear based emotions, if left unchecked, can eat away at your quality of life. Taking your self-confidence, joy and excitement and leaving you feeling empty and desolate. When you eliminate the power of fear and these shadow issues, you can focus on your strengths. Life becomes more fulfilling and enjoyable. You find you are excited about life again and everything around you changes for the better.
When your ready for this deep soul healing I'm here to assist you. The Bliss Coaching Program can support you as you examine your shadows and begin a deep journey of personal healing.

The newest planner is now live on Amazon!
Often when working with clients I recommend journaling and other introspective work. This process is easier, (and therefore more effective), if you have an easy format and prompts to follow. That's how this newest book was born.
The Best Life planner works with the Bliss Coaching system or as a standalone product. Anyone can benefit from daily journaling and becoming more mindful of all the "good" in their lives. The planner is over 340 pages, with room to write your daily thoughts or appointments as well as designated space to write daily with mindful prompts. By taking the time to focus on the good in your life, you are shifting your thinking and can easily move back into a state of balance and harmony.
Studies show there’s a strong connection between happiness and mindfulness. Journaling brings you into that state of mindfulness; past frustrations and future anxieties lose their edge in the present moment. Journaling also assits you in gathering your thoughts and calling the mind to attention, from passivity to actively engaging with your thought
If you are feeling stressed or having anxiety, writing and focusing on positive thoughts in your life can help you calm down. I have also included a few new coloring pages in this planner to help you slow down and shift your focus, as well.
"My zone of genius is around mentoring, guiding and coaching inspired, creative, conscious and spiritual entrepreneurs and individuals to connect with their deepest desires and values so they can rise with grace.
