  • Time for a cognitive reset?

    I decided to take a technology break from writing my blog and have not written a blog since June 12, 2016. It was a solo experiment of further practicing and being authentically present to my own work life balance. Have we become generations who are distracted easily? We are wasting hours a day checking information […]

  • Free Time Balancing (June 12, 2016)

    For this week’s blog I want to dive in and really chat about spare time.  Each week I notice family, friends, co-workers and my clients struggling with what they want to do versus what they feel they should do in their free or spare time.

  • Mom of the Month History

    May is always a special month for me.  It starts with the second Sunday and the celebration of Mother’s Day. Being a mother is truly one of the greatest gifts that life gives us. A week later it’s my birthday and my family deems that May is really all about me! I gracefully accept that! […]

Work life balance is interrupted and we humbly and gratefully support our loved ones and friends as much as we can. Not […]

  • Is it time to balance your bucket list?

  • Balance your Worries

    This week let’s delve into the emotion of worry.  Why do we worry? Everyone does it.  Worrying will not stop the bad stuff from happening. It just stops YOU from enjoying the good. We’ve all heard the expression of a certain percentage (90%) of what we worry about never happens! (have a look here! It’s 85% of us […]

Why are we losing the art of conversation?  Do you know what the ingredients are for a good conversation? Technology has certainly played a huge reason of losing face to face […]
