Are You Experiencing an Unbalanced Season or Unbalanced Life?

Ep: 117

Take a moment to step back and look at your life from a wider lens. Look at the big picture and consider your friends, family, and work life. How do you feel about what you see? If you’re feeling burned out or like you don’t have the time, flexibility, or peace of mind that you wish you had, then you’re likely experiencing an imbalance. Occasional imbalances are just a part of life, but they shouldn’t be a way of life. Is what you’re experiencing due to temporary circumstances, or does it feel more like a cycle of repetition?

In today’s episode, Blake helps you understand the difference between an unbalanced season and an unbalanced life that could be steering you off course. We have the tendency to push ourselves to get it all done, but that actually results in brain fatigue. We can’t do our best work or be at full capacity when we’re not fully charged, so recognizing the difference is crucial for our wellbeing. Today, you’ll learn to recognize if it’s time for you to recharge and take back control to find the balance you need to be your best.
