It can be tiring finding enough brain food to stimulate and satisfy my ever-growing mental appetite but it’s a commitment I adore and cherish and I wouldn’t change it for anything. I couldn’t be content watching mind-numbing TV every night; sometimes a relaxing night in is called for but that’s just to vary my routine (and I do devour about 5-10 movies per week so that nourishes my imagination no end).
Because I operate on a very high energy frequency I need to monitor my work/life balance levels (and it is precisely this careful control of my own behaviour and schedule that makes me an expert work/life balance coach.) In the next part of this blog series I’ll tell you how I compliment all of this activity with the spiritual and emotional foundations of relaxation and rest.
In the last two weeks I have engaged in all of these activities, many of them taking place every day. (And I manage these items around a 9-5 job, a private coaching practice, and my volunteer coaching activities)
The bigwhenlittlewhen blog was conceived to bring awareness to my new book about achieving work/life balance so it feels only right to explore what balance looks like in practice. I believe there are three essential foundations that need to be satisfied – mind, body and spirit. I will explore each of these over the next 3 blogs and report back on my personal experience and application. It is not uncommon for the 3 foundations to interweave and overlap, and the more the better.
Blog Part 1: Body – the physical foundation
Blog Part 2: Mind – the mental foundation
Blog Part 3: Spirit – the spiritual (and emotional) foundation

“You can achieve whatever it is that puts a smile on your face.” Author Sasha Wallace begins her short book with an inviting idea, engaging my mind right away. And her promise to deliver simple and effective content to help gain clarity over prioritizing and organizing, not only met, but exceeded my expectations in this book. She approaches goals using a “big when/little when” mentality, which she easily describes and presents to the reader. This engaging book really helped me gain clarity in my personal life goals. The tools illustrated in this easy to follow read have truly helped propel me to new heights, learn how to manage stress better, and understand myself more fully. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in growing, learning and investing more time into yourself.”
