  • Balance Your Craving

    Deepak Chopra once observed, “Your brain produces a chemical that relays the news of your happiness to all 52 million of your body cells-who rejoice and join.” Apprehension is part of our daily lives. It all stems from our belief system and what beliefs we have attached ourselves too. Work Life Balance is a topic […]

  • Today is going to be a great day!

    Anyone who knows me can elude to you that my passion for living an authentic life is truly filled with work life balance. Certainly, I am not any different from you.  I have experienced loss, sadness, trauma during different parts of my life, now that I am (almost) middle aged…. Work Life Balance comes from […]

  • You’ve Got One Chance

    I’ve always loved public speaking.  Yes, I know! Most people look at me and say, “I just can’t do it!” In this game of life, I’ve been given the honor and privilege to give eulogies at funeral services for clients, friends and family. Being asked is a true honor.  Taking the time to honor someone’s […]

  • Balancing How You View Yourself

    One of my favourite quotes is from Theodore Roosevelt.  He said, “I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do. That is character!” A very powerful quote full of irony and a strong principle – self-reflection. As a Work Life Balance Specialist, […]

  • There’s more to life…

    “One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one’s work is terribly important”. -Bertrand Russell What a powerful quote. Mental health in the workplace is not decreasing or slowing down.  On the contrary, it’s increasing each day. Work is ONE element of your Work Life Balance equation. This week, I have had […]

  • Can Men & Women Find Balance Together?

    I often hear from my private clients, “Do you think I am a good father? good mother?” As the conversation flows it is full of self-doubt, remorse and usually the ‘aha’ moment of “Maybe I am spending too much time at work?” If this sounds familiar or is resonating with you, we’ve all been there […]

  • Human Alignment

    When I work with individuals or companies, I am always intrigued by the motivation factor that they have of wanting to be better, smarter, faster, loved, etc. Why do we look after all aspects of our lives yet we don’t always indulge or schedule the self-care regime that is absolutely needed to have work life […]

  • Finding Balance – Even When Life is Tough!

    This week I am publishing my blog a day early.  Unfortunately, my husband’s uncle passed away and I am attending a funeral out of town. I’m passionate and committed to blogging on Work Life Balance weekly.  Even when life happens, work life balance can happen – it’s a simple shift with a bit of time […]

  • It’s a Simple Decision

    As I write this week’s blog, I am continually dumbfounded that people are pushing themselves beyond their limits — physically, psychologically, emotionally — the message here on ALL levels. We are not built to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  There is nothing in the world that is so important you risk your health […]

  • Discovering Imbalance – Fear or Intelligent?

    The moment you are mentoring a private client and it happens. The ‘aha’ moment. They discover imbalance and I usually see tears of joy and self-awareness! The meeting when an employer and an employee have direct communication and we arrive at the root of the problem and a plan is developed to get that employee […]
