Finding balance in a busy life

balanceOn the surface I appeared happy, beaming with energy, with a growing business and an idyllic  family.  But I desperately lacked balance.  I would take work home from the office, dedicate all non-office time to helping around the house and being with the kids, then continue to work once everyone else in the house had gone to bed.  I dealt with my stress through food and alcohol.  I sorely missed getting exercise and play time for myself.  With the demands of my business and family, regaining time just for myself seemed impossible.

Zo helped me define a vision of how I wanted to feel in my daily life.

He helped me to balance my priorities and elevate taking care of myself as a priority.

We talked through my commitments and schedule and found me a reasonable amount of time to invest in exercise, relationship maintenance, and reflection.

We set reasonable attainable weekly goals.

Within a few weeks these goals had simply become activities that were automatically a part of my week.

Zo provided ongoing support and guidance to help me take a future vision of my health and wellness and turn it into the way I felt and lived on a daily basis in the present.

I had a change of attitude about eating, exercising, and the allocation of my personal time.  Six months later I’ve lost 20 pounds and I have significantly increased energy.

I spend more quality time with my family and I take a few hours a week for myself.

I spend my “me” time in reflection and in the kind of play and exercise that rejuvenates my soul.

Thanks to Zo, I feel grounded and balanced.
