You’re managing A LOT of competing roles and responsibilities in your life right now. You work really hard to keep it all together and live up to everyone’s expectations. You show up each day, you take care of others, you’re smart, responsible, and dependable. You do a great job of making sure everyone else in your life happy, while your needs always wind up on the back burner.
You give so much to others that there is absolutely nothing left for YOU.
It feels like an endless cycle of trying harder, doing more, and finishing each day feeling depleted and exhausted.
You might feel…
Irritable, on-edge, and burnt-out.
Tearful or anxious or both.
Forgetful and scattered.
Like you’re letting everyone down.
Like you’re not-good-enough.
Like you should feel guilty for wanting time for yourself.
Like you “can’t” or “shouldn’t” have the life you want.
“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
– Annie Dillard
You don’t want to feel so overwhelmed and exhausted all the time. You want to feel more in control of your own happiness, and more like yourself.
You want to carve out the time and space you need to take care of YOU, without feeling like you’re asking for too much or doing something wrong.
You know there’s got to be a way to figure out this whole work-life balance thing, develop healthier habits and boundaries, and live a happier, more manageable life.
