The Key to Finding a Better Balance

The Key to Finding a Better Balance

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, we have the key to helping you get back into balance fast. 

Based on a Life Wheel exercise used frequently by life coaches, we’ve re-invented the wheel – giving it the Project Me spin to include life areas specifically relevant to busy mothers like you.

We’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.

For a limited time we’re giving away the Project Me Life Wheel Tool. Grab yours now. 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. (We never share your details with anyone – promise.)






 

The results of your wheel will give you a starting point for what steps to take next. Each week you’ll get our simple motivational newsletter to help keep you on track.

We’re passionate about helping you find a happier balance! Take this free gift – and let us know how it works for you.

    i love this, kelly! i’m one of those coaches who frequently uses one form of the life wheel with my clients. yours is much more colorful and fun, and i love the added “productivity” section.

  2. Thanks for the compliment April – we originally made it for ourselves and loved it so much we decided to turn it into our logo and ‘roll it out’ to the public :)

    Oh la la! I love it + am signing up ;) I could seriously use some better tactics for keeping focused with my brood (oh + hubby! :D )

    I almost had a heart attack this morning that I missed my daughters school interview! Thankfully, Google Calendars got my blood flowing again…phew!!

    Thank you Kelly x

    • I can only imagine the heart attack inducing situation that was Theressa. We’ve all experienced that panic feeling that we’re meant to be somewhere else!

      So happy you’ve signed up :) We aim to give busy mothers a great supply of tools and tactics so you feel less in ‘firefighting mode’ and more able to enjoy the ride.

    My favorite part : “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.”
    Thank you for this powerful tool and means to step away from the details weighing us down so that we can see what is really going on and focus on what matters most and/or is being neglected.

    This came at the perfect time! Balance can be such a struggle, especially this time of year. I really like how you stated that not all areas of life need the same amount of energy put into them. Thank you!

    • You’re welcome ! We’re really happy that it landed in your lap at the right time Cathy! It was a real relief for us too when we realised that balance isn’t about giving equal attention to all areas across the board simultaneously. Keep checking in with your life wheel – especially over this busy time – so you can continue to give your energy where it’s most needed and know that nothing is being neglected.

    Hi Suzie,
    This is such an invaluable tool to use on a regular basis, making me more focused on what’s needed and where.
    Important also not to ‘beat myself up’ if I don’t get all aspects of my life right all of the time. After all practice makes perfect!

    Thank you so much.
    Carmen

    • Agreed Carmen! Who does get it right all of the time anyway? (Perfectionism is so over-rated don’t you think!) Keep on doing what you’re doing. Awareness is the first – and most important step! x
