Have you ever looked around you and wondered how some people get so much done in life and still seem balanced?We all have the same 24-hours in a day, but some people just seem to have unlocked the secret to stopping time in its tracks as they achieve their goals, back fresh cookies – and still look perfect!As a Mum, business coach and volunteer for three organisations, I'm often asked “How do you do it all?!”My simple answer is: “I don’t!”But let me explain further and share with you my...

Top 5 Tips for living a balanced life as a Female Entrepreneur

As a Mum, #BusinessCoach and volunteer for three organisations, I'm often asked “How do you do it all?!” My simple answer is: “I don’t!” Here's what I do do...

1. Know what 'balanced' means to you

As women, many of us have built up a dangerous habit of comparing ourselves with others. We look at our neighbour’s perfectly kept garden, or our friend’s immaculate dress sense and chastise ourselves for not being perfect enough. But once you focus on what’s important to you and stop stressing about everything else, you free yourself to design the balanced life you really want and fill your life with joy and accomplishment.

2. Ask for help

Another dangerous habit I’ve been guilty of in the past – and I know I’m not alone in this – is feeling that I have to do it all. You don’t!I’ve learned to ask for help when I need it. It’s amazing how many people out there love and excel at the things you find difficult or a chore, and even more people who are happy to support you in your mission to make a difference. So get out there and ask, when you get more support, you can do more good in the world and you give others permission to live our their purpose too.

A dangerous habit I’ve been guilty of in the past – and I know I’m not alone in this – is feeling that I have to do it all. You don’t! Here's how to maintain balance as a #FemaleEntrepreneur...

3. Have a vision and a plan

Being a creative type, having a vision has never been too difficult for me, but it’s only once I’ve been able to back this up with a clear plan that I’ve really been able to gain traction and start ticking off my bigger goals.I use a grid-style daily planning system that I created that not only helps prioritise my to-do list, but also helps me keep an eye on my personal growth, mindset and health, helping me to consciously manage my life balance every day. Planning my day the night before helps me to wake up with intention and feel more in control and satisfied with my progress – even when the unexpected happens. (Email me if you'd like to a copy).

4. Develop a habit of gratitude

Gratitude is one of the most powerful habits I believe anyone can develop – it’s also one of the easiest!Take two minutes at the end of each day to write down three things that you were grateful for that day, you’ll soon see a big difference in your life and you’ll gain a more positive outlook that will help you focus on the important things, which will support your life balance.

Gratitude is one of the most powerful habits you can develop – it’s also one of the easiest! Here's how to get started...

5. Take yourself seriously

By this I mean that you should make ‘me time’ a daily activity and celebrate this.There’s a well-known saying, ‘You can’t pour from an empty cup’, which is so true. You can only produce your best work and give the best of yourself to others when you are balanced, happy, energised and fulfilled, and these come from within us.Sometimes we can feel that in doing so we're being selfish - in these moments I encourage you to remember that you're actually being self-full, and that's more than OK.It’s our responsibility to take the time we need to create our own joy and happiness – and not feel guilty about it!

Sometimes we can feel that when we focus on our own needs first we're being selfish - in these moments I encourage you to remember that you're being 'self-full' + that's more than OK.
