Getting Back on Track When You Feel Unbalanced

Last week we talked about how to come back when we face burnout.  This week, we are talking about the other thing that takes us away from being the best we can be...falling out of balance.  More importantly, we are talking about how you can get back on track after you have fallen off your balance. Here's the thing, balance is not a place to arrive to.  It’s not an accomplishment. It is a verb.  It’s an action that we choose to take each day in our lives to be the best version of ourselves in all that God has called us to be.

A Different Way to Set Goals

Join us in a 7-Day program called the New Year Reset inside Life Balance Membership.  Start your free 7-day trial by diving into this program.  Click here to get started. So, with last week ending a series and next week starting a series, we are in a week of transition.  And really that is what this week has been all about….meaning the week between Christmas and New Year.  It is my favorite week of the year because it is quiet, there isn’t that much going on and I can just breath, think, and be. Every year I use this week to reflect on areas of my life, give gratitude, dream a little and just talk to God about bigger things than I normally get to on a daily basis.  I go through a process that allows me better insight to setting goals and getting ready to accomplish them.   It is this exact system that I have been teaching to our Life Balance members this week.  If you are not a life Balance member, you can still join us! The great thing is that we are walking through a pre-recorded course that you can start really at any time.  It’s a 7-day new program that has been added to the membership and it will help you get clear on your goals in a whole new way.   In this episode, I wanted to share with you three of the principles that we teach in this program.  It’s a different way of setting goals than most people do, but so highly effective.

Busy Moms Dealing With Stress

In this episode, we are diving into the topic of stress.  I mean, who doesn't have stress in our lives, right?  We all know that it is just a part of our every day, but how can we effectively deal with it?   Luckily, we have an expert guest to help us out.  Gina Poirier is a happily married mom of three, stress management coach and writer who helps overwhelmed, exhausted moms find peace and purpose in the everyday. Check out free resources for Christian moms at ginampoirier.com, where "Wiping noses for Jesus is legit!" Gina has put together some great tips for us on this topic.  I hope you have a listen as she shares her insight.  Here is the outline of our conversation. 1.  Create a healthy perspective about stress.  Stress is not a bad thing.  It was designed by God for our good.  Once we can see stress in our lives from a neutral place, we can be better equipped to deal with it in a healthy way. 2.  Know you can't always control stress but you can control your stress response.  Let's talk about stress resiliency.  As you begin to build up this up for yourself, here are the things to think about. Physical- Taking care of your body with good nutrition, staying hydrated, exercise, and getting the right about of sleep for yourself. Emotional/Mental- Setting boundaries, minimizing toxic self-thinking, working on better relationships, limit screen time. Spiritual- See point three. 3.  Taking spiritual rest.  God created us to do amazing things, but he also called us to slow down and rest.  The Bible calls us to this over and over and God has set examples through nature and through his own actions as well.  It's about celebration and showing gratitude.  So choose your Sabbath.  Pray about it and see how God would have you implement this into your life. Gina has a great 5-day challenge for you called StessLESS.  You should totally sign up for it and can find it here: https://ginampoirier.lpages.co/stressless-free-course/ This episode was sponsored by Life Balance Membership.  If you are serious about creating more balance in your life, start your free 7-day trial and try out the Life Balance system for yourself.  Go to LifeBalanceMembership.com to get started.
