Self-Care and Setting Boundaries
Where are you falling short in trying to balance it all? How can you avoid overwhelm? How can you take care of yourself so that you can support those around you?
Balancing work and life requires being clear on our values, purpose, and priorities, and having strategies to make changes. Work-Life Balance Coaching involves setting boundaries, quieting our inner critic, and putting attention to our well-being so that our brains can think, communicate, and problem solve with less reactivity and more clarity.
When we know what to say Yes and No to, how to communicate these decisions, and when to ask for help, we have more well-being, well-thinking, and peace of mind.
