Always running out of time? This is how to fix it

Life balance means different things to different people, but no matter how you look at it, there are always some mandatory things that we all need to get done like cooking, doing laundry, cleaning the house, groceries, managing our bills and finances, commuting to and from work – I’m sure you can come up with some others for yourself.
The key to finding the right life-balance for you is to streamline the heck out of your life.

Your self talk is a symptom of the underlying problem

We follow so many habits in our day. We get up and check our phones without stopping to think “what should I do first?” and we brush our teeth, maybe make some coffee all without thinking.
Our habits also apply to our self-talk.
When we have a triggering event, like an awkward conversation or something not going as planned, our brain automatically jumps into our predetermined patterns, and our self-talk follows.
But the truth is our self-talk is actually just the symptom of the underlying problem.

who are you? luke or yoda?

Helping others is really important to you.
That’s why you went into a service-based profession, right? You want to make a difference.
You do the same with your family and friends, always being there for them supporting them and helping them when they need it.
But working hard and giving a lot of yourself to others doesn’t mean that you’ll be happy.
In fact, it’s some of the worst advice you’ll receive because it’s just going to lead to disappointment and burnout.
You aren’t Yoda – you’re Luke.

why you need to stop calling it “cheating”

I’m sure you’ve heard of the “cheat-day” mentality before. Just in case you haven’t, it goes something like this:
You stick to your diet plan for six days and then “cheat” on your diet one day a week and eat whatever you want.
Or maybe you say that you’ll allow yourself to have a “cheat meal” or you decide to order dessert and say “It’s okay, I’ve been good lately, I can “cheat” on my diet a little bit today.”
This way of thinking is broken, though, and in this episode I’m going to tell you why.
