Life Lessons: Balance

Similar Tops: (1), (2)  //Yoga Pants (my absolute favourites!)

Today’s post  is different than usual. (You’ve been warned!) Today, I wanted to talk to you about finding balance as a busy professional. If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen the Facebook Live video I did last week on this topic. One of the biggest challenges you can face as a working woman is finding the balance between building your career and taking care of yourself and the things that matter to you. 

If your 20s are for figuring things out (as they say they are), since turning 30, I’ve decided that your 30s are for implementing all of those things you figured out. I’ve learned that to be the best friend, girlfriend, family member & lawyer I can be, I need to not put myself on the back burner. 

Some of the main ways I take time for myself are through dance, pilates & yoga. I try to find my balance (figuratively & literally haha) through these activities. As a courtroom lawyer, my days are hectic to say the least, and often involve a lot of drama. By taking the time out of my schedule to do pilates or take a dance class, I find my body & mind are aligned.

Being in-sync benefits all aspects of your life, from your performance at work to your relationships with friends & family and, of course, your own physical and emotional health.  It’s only when you feel totally in-sync with your core that you can harness your greatest potential. You need to make yourself a priority in your own life in order to achieve all of your daily goals. … and that, my lovely readers, is some completely unsolicited life advice from your friendly neighbourhood working woman / blogger.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this advice, and your thoughts in general on the challenge of balance as you build a career. What activities do you find help you feel more aligned and in-sync?
Being InSync is that special state when body and mind are aligned, we are in touch with our core, and we are driven from within to achieve our full potential. The positivity that radiates from being InSync will benefit all aspects of a person’s life – at work, in personal relationships and in the all-important relationship with oneself.

    How did you avoid panty lines in the yoga photos? It’s always a major issue for me.

      I’ve never had that problem to be honest, so I’m not sure! Maybe just the thickness of yoga pants you’re choosing? My main ones are the Victoria’s Secret Knockout tights and the Lululemon wonder under tights.
