19: Why I Detest the Word Balance

Do you feel like you’re on a never-ending search for balance in your life?

We’re constantly being sold this idea of “balance” as the secret to a happy life, but I don’t believe in it. 

This episode is all about why I detest the word “balance.” I’m telling you why I think the word “balance” is completely misused, and suggesting a word we should use instead. 

Guess what? Not everything in life will be equally balanced at all times and that’s okay! The truth is, not everything in your life needs to be equally balanced. What’s more important is that you are scheduling things in your life with intention and creating habits that make sense for you. 

If you’re tired of beating yourself up over not having a perfectly balanced life, this is for you. 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Why not everything in your life needs to be equally balanced 
  • How to restore your energy when you feel out of “balance”
  • The word that I think we should use instead of “balance”
  • Why you have to be intentional about your routine 
  • The power of creating a practice that makes sense for you 
  • The value of creating habits 
  • The importance of consistency and persistence
  • How to shape your identity 

What are you doing out of habit that is no longer serving you? Are you holding onto it because you think it makes you more “balanced?” It’s time to get intentional about making a shift into a different habit that works for you.
