How can you truly enjoy your work and family with no unnecessary
pressure, worry or ovewhelm? Savor that soccer game and each
pirouette at the ballet recital? Enjoy that networking event and team
meeting? And even get home feeling great about yourself? How
amazing would that be? Boycott balance with these practical tips
and start living on your terms. First, get over the guilt. It’s a useless
emotion that gets you nowhere. Next, ditch that superhero cape
because you don’t need to have super-powers to be super. What’s
more, always say YES to love, support and offers for assistance; say
NO to the things you can’t do or don’t want to do. Remember that
saying NO to something means saying YES to you. Lastly, determine
if the people in your life are energizing you or sucking the life out of
you. Be grateful for what you have, and even for what you don’t have.
Celebrate your wins — whether they’re big or small, it doesn’t matter.
Define success on your terms. You’re doing the best you can, and
that’s good enough!

Just thinking of how you can
accomplish all the tasks you have
at hand can be quite overwhelming.
Remember, life is about priorities so
take a pause to create a to-do list and assign priorities to
each item. If it’s low priority, don’t let it cause high-stress.
Close your eyes and take a few long
breathes counting to 3 on each inhale
and 3 on each exhale. Each time you
breathe in and out, it helps quiet your
mind and bring you back to center. You can use this simple
trick just about anywhere, just not in traffic.
Sometimes you just need a
change of scenery to change your
mindset and refocus. Make a date
with nature and take a stroll in
the park, kayak in the bay or hit
the trails on your bike.
