How To Be More Well-Balanced In Your Everyday Life
Written by Kayla Delargy
“The Importance Of Work-Life Balance In 5 Simple Steps”
So many of us live out our days stressed out, maxed out, and riding on a constant emotional roller coaster.

Wondering how it got this way for us, and wondering to ourselves if it’ll always be this way...

Do you remember back to the time when you didn’t feel the overwhelm of responsibilities? For some of us it might be so long ago we can’t even remember what it felt like…

But we imagine it would be, has to be, better than what we are experiencing now. Where the weight of the world is on our shoulders and what’s needed to achieve our dreams seems to get harder & harder to find the time. 

Life’s day-to-day routine takes over and before we realize it, we are married, with children, in a career that seems to work for the most part, and we’re financially getting by… It’s as if your life is set on autopilot. 

But inside, maybe somewhere hidden deep inside, there’s a burning for more. 

A desire to not have to work this hard, to still live this kind of day-to-day lifestyle… A desire to have more time back, where you remember the special moments and get to be 100% present in them… A yearning for creating work-life balance where you can feel free - but still responsible with your work. 

If that’s you sister, you’re here to learn how to be more well-balanced all of the time and I want to share with you my personal story and regimen on becoming exactly that…
The Importance Of Work-Life Balance
My personal story of struggling to find balance begins back when I was a kid, and I did chores as a way of showing my affection, worth, and capabilities.

As much as I hated some of the responsibilities left to me as a kid like cleaning horse stalls, loading cattle bails, and you know the typical picking up dog shit, I did it. And I did it with great efficiency and pride that I did a good job too — no matter what.

“We don’t half-ass around here” my mom use to say…

But that controlling, need to prove my work ethic, and even worth to others through my abilities has also led to a lot of internal battles and struggle finding inner peace. 

As wonderful as being a go-getter can be, it’s also a recipe for burnout and lack of balance of any kind. Which years later, when becoming an Entrepreneur with my own business and work hours, proved to be still a major issue. 

I found myself working 16+ hours on my computer, all because I could. Month after month, thing after thing I enjoyed, and made time for or previously did before my business - started to disappear out of my schedule. 

I ate, slept, and breathed business. Everyday - all day. It was all I talked about, thought about, and even dreamt about. It was my greatest fear to fail, but also my thriving passion to succeed that led me down a spiraling path of ultimately losing my happiness. 

I lost friendships. I faced major obstacles in my marriage. I separated myself from my family because they didn’t understand my drive… Work-life balance didn’t exist anywhere within a 10 mile radius of me and I had no idea how it had gotten this way. 

At first.

But through a lot of personal work, spiritual coaches, programs, personal development courses, seminars and books, I learned it was my lack of balance all along. 

Or boundaries some might say. Either way, I had none, and knowing that I went on a man-hunt to find out how I could get back what I lost… What I pushed away and deemed so unimportant.

5 Tips To Bring More Balance Into Your Life
See I wholeheartedly believe you should “go-hard” in your business, but other areas of your life shouldn’t suffer because of it. 

There has to be a balance between work-and-play and if there isn’t, you cannot move forward. You’ll always be teetering back and forth, or completely stuck in one place. 

Which was the case for me. It seemed like no matter how hard I worked, things weren’t getting easier - I put systems in place, hired an assistant, and relieved more responsibilities than ever but somehow, someway I still didn’t have the time. 

To workout, to hula hoop, to read my favorite books, to go on a date with my husband, to journal, the list went on…

(maybe you can relate even in different ways, somehow someway, you put something else first)

Until one day, I decided to change it. I wanted to practice what I knew was so important for those I learned from and looked up to — work-life balance. 

So how can we be hopeful for what’s possible, and start today on creating a more well-balanced lifestyle for ourselves?

Well sister, we start by learning how to live WITH the ups and downs, and stop trying to avoid, or discredit why it’s happening to us personally

“The only way out is through” so if you’re struggling in any of the same ways I shared above, I want to invite you to take a look within and search for your answer. 

Somewhere inside is the answer to your problem why, and if you are willing to be open and honest with yourself, you will have the ability to find it and change it. 


Here are my 5 personal tips to living a more well-balanced lifestyle :
#1 : Have a morning routine! 
Do something for YOU in the morning verse going into immediate reactive mode for everyone else around you. This is the first step in finding and creating balance in all areas of your life and having a morning routine will set your day up for its best start! 



Make time to…

  • Meditate
  • Yoga flow 

  • Journal 
  • ​ Read 
  • ​​ Go for a walk
  • ​Create a plan
  • ​Visualize 

  • ​Any activities that make you feel alive! (and are beneficial to your productivity of course)

Remember to fill your cup full. This ensures you can be of better service, and mood to those around you ;) 
#2 :  Incorporate a nutritional diet into your day! 

This is crucial in feeling your best, and preforming your best. Feed your mind and body right.



Far too many times when we are busy, we put off having a real meal, let alone something that contains the nutritional value we need to keep us energized and performing at our best. But if you care about yourself, and you want to be the best mom-wife-partner-friend-daughter-sister-employee-boss… You name it, its important to maintain good health. 

Start with getting a good amount of fruits, veggies, simple-carbs, and even clean water into your daily nutritional regimen! 
#3 : Move your body! Everyday. 
Seriously. The amount of tension you can release by doing this simple yet effective activity will help immensely in relieving stress, aiding in regular stable blood flow and circulation, and allow your body to sweat out any toxins and harmful substances. 



Schedule in time to…
  • Go for a walk on your lunch break 

  • Stand up at your desk and stretch every few hours 

  • Start going to a yoga class every week 

  • ​Get a bike and ride before / after work for 15-30 minutes 
  • Walk to get coffee or breakfast nearby

  • ​Join a walking group or activity group to help you stay accountable

This can be one of the greatest senses of release - and relief. If you make time to do it!

Pssssttt... I'd love to personally invite you join our Sisterhood support group on Facebook where we host free workout challenges, share self love practices, helpful wellness tips and tricks and ongoing support from like-minded women. Join us HERE <<
#4 : Create a financial plan! 

So many of us stress over money, fight over the lack of it and stay in negative states because of it. Take it from someone who keeps herself up at night with thoughts of money, and fears of losing it all... Having a plan of some kind will give you the confidence in making even better financial decisions.  

You can create a financial plan about… 
  • Saving towards a new item (house, car, material piece)
  • Paying off a debt (credit card, mortgage, or loan)
  • Investing into something (starting a business, real estate, stocks and bonds, etc)
  • ​Investing into someone (career fund, college savings, inheritance)
  • Saving towards a trip or experience (vacation, marriage, first child)
But preparation is key sister, so sit down - budget things out, and start planning a future that gives you peace of mind. This is something to remind yourself of each time stress tries to get the best of you!

***After this, read my journal article, "How To Make Your Money Grow : Questions To Ask Before Investing" to set yourself up right from the start. Read that entry HERE <<
#5 : SLEEP... and a lot of it! 

Studies show since 1985, the amount of adults who get less than 6 hours of sleep a night has increased 31%. And that was my life, by choice of course. But for many of us, it isn’t. 

Did you know that long-term sleep deprivation also increases risk for chronic conditions like heart disease? If you’re not sleeping - your body isn’t healing or recovering. Which is what gives us the energy we need, and good health to truly enjoy our lives.

Go to bed earlier, sleep in a little bit later, give your body its needed time to rest and re-energize!
Conclusion...
We have nothing without our health, and even if it may not be perfect - it can always be worse so putting yourself first, committing to creating a more well-balanced lifestyle should be your #1 takeaway from this post. 

If you struggle with any of these above tips, believe me, I can relate.

It’s not easy to put yourself first, to make time for what’s best for YOU, but as one of my favorite quotes states...

“Take care of your body, it’s the only place you have to live.”

So start practicing some of these tips above, and have fun finding out what a well-balanced lifestyle looks like on you!
