It’s easy to let the demands of motherhood tip you in one direction, leaving other parts of your life sitting on the back burner.
You don’t realise you’re neglecting your self care – even when you become overwhelmed and short fused. You don’t see that your man needs attention, until you start drifting apart. Without enough fun, friends or personal growth – you get into a total rut. Take your eye off the ball with finances, organising or cleaning – and suddenly you’re in a deep mess.
So how can a busy mama find a better balance in life when there’s always so much that needs attention?
First you have to know, balance is not about giving the same amount of energy to all areas of your life simultaneously. It’s more about being aware of what needs your focus at any given time and recognising the symptoms of feeling out of balance before things get out of hand.
It’s all too easy to let some areas of your life fall off the radar completely while you’re too busy with everything else.
The good news is, I have the key to helping you get back into balance fast.
Based on a Life Wheel exercise used frequently by life coaches, I’ve re-invented the wheel – giving it the Project Me spin to include life areas specifically relevant to busy mothers like you.
I’ve added a life section for Productivity to cover everything that goes along with running the show. (Meal planning, organisation, time management, etc.) Love also has its very own piece of the pie. (Lumping your partner in with your kids is never a good idea.)
Whenever you’re feeling out of balance, the Project Me Life Wheel Tool will help you figure out why. It’ll give you a bird’s eye view of what needs your attention right now. There are only so many days in a week and you need to make sure you’re spending your time and energy on the right stuff.
I’m now giving away the Project Me Life Wheel Tool. It comes with full driving instructions so you can give it a spin straight away. Just pop your name and email into the box below. (I’ll never share your details with anyone.)
The results of your wheel will give you a starting point for what steps to take next. Each week you’ll also get a Monday Motivator to help keep you on track.
I’m passionate about helping you find a happier balance. Take this free gift – and let me know how it works for you.
