Like me, I'm sure you have felt the guilt and pressure that comes when trying to attain a 'work-life' balance. The reason being, such a rigid 'formula' cannot account for all of your values, priorities and responsibilities, which makes this standard sometimes IMPOSSIBLE to reach! The Balance Theory is premised on the idea that what you need to strike a good balance in your life, is totally dependent on YOU at any given point in time. We are on a mission to arm you with tools and tips within the areas of health, relationships and fulfilment, so that you can assess what BALANCE means to you, even through times of change - after all, there's no blue print or one size fits all solution.

    41. Sarah Davidson (Seize The Yay) on happy accidents, failing forward and breaking the autopilot circuit 🙌

    41. Sarah Davidson (Seize The Yay) on happy accidents, failing forward and breaking the autopilot circuit 🙌

    Today I am joined by the wonderful Sarah Davidson - founder of Matcha Maiden, Matcha Mylkbar & host of the Seize The Yay podcast. I have a been a big fan of Sarah's for some time now and I love her even more after this interview (total fan girl moment for me)!
    Today we chat about how Sarah got to where she is today, the happy accidents & sliding doors moment that have landed her in many unforeseen but amazing situations as well as how the entire Seize The Yay concept came to be. In and amongst this, a chat about the danger zone a lot of us are in - the zone where we won't really question what we are doing, unless we are actively unhappy. She refers to this as the autopilot circuit and gives us her tips on how to break this and find true purpose - even if we don't change a thing. We also chat about Seizing Your NAY which is equally as important as the yay, finding your why, rewiring failures as movement forwards and her tips on meaningful self care.
    We end with a chat about the importance of PLAY & why dreaming big needs to be small enough so you can actually start.
    I can't wait for you to tune into this one - I know you will love it as much as me!
    Check out all Sarah's up to @spoonful_of_sarah
    Enjoy & share with a loved one!

    40. Ang Campanella *aka my partner* on the pain perception, rewiring failures and taking action 💪

    40. Ang Campanella *aka my partner* on the pain perception, rewiring failures and taking action 💪

    Well this was fun! I got to interview my partner and share his wealth of knowledge about the human body & zest for life all in one! To commemorate our birthday month, I'm sharing 3 of the closest people in my circle with you all as double episodes this June, starting with my soul mate!
    Today Ang and I chat about lots of things from his professional journey into chiropractic, to owning a business, the lessons along the way & why pain is your body's language and way of protecting you. This was a bomb that helped me years ago deal with niggles and rewire my understanding of the human body. More into life topics, we chat about why failures basically don't exist and how to rewire your perception of them, the importance of taking action over planning (most times) and how to back yourself.
    I also share some insight into why Ang was such a pivotal part of this podcast coming to life and stay tuned for the end where we share some exclusive info not everyone may know about either of us!
    If you want to connect with Ang more you can find him @angcampanellachiro or visit the clinic by booking here.
    I hope you enjoy getting to know my soul mate! It is truly a blessing to be able to share him with you all. Share this with someone who will love it too!
    Until next time,
    Stay Balanced!

    39. Nancy Sokarno on healthy procrastination, people pleasing and why therapy may not be what you think 🙏

    39. Nancy Sokarno on healthy procrastination, people pleasing and why therapy may not be what you think 🙏

    Can procrastination be healthy? Do you notice how your energy shifts around certain people or places? Are you not too confident putting up a boundary if you haven’t already done so?
    Today I'm joined by my first guest ever, Nancy Sokarno, or some of you may know her a Psych With Sokz! We chat all things from what to expect from therapy (I feel like no one shares this information?), and how this can help you being preventative in terms of your mental health - so many of us are quick to do this for our bodies by exercising, so it's time to spread the word on doing the same for our minds 🧠
    Further, what Monsters Zinc has to do with your energy and why you should care, noticing how things and situations make us feel, and finding what lights you up. There's a little vent about procrastination, when this is a curse, and actually identifying when it can be a really a healthy thing! We finish with a shout out to all people pleasers (me included), and dive deep into setting boundaries - after all, if you're living to please someone else, your boundaries are probably very low or non existent!
    You can connect with Nancy more @psychwithsokz or by visiting her website here.
    The article we mentioned can also be found here.

    *GUIDED MEDITATION* 10 Minute Body Scan with Tom Sullivan 🧘

    *GUIDED MEDITATION* 10 Minute Body Scan with Tom Sullivan 🧘

    A body scan is my current obsession - the fastest way I've found to get out of my head, and into my body. Ten minutes is that perfect sweet spot where it's not too short, but not too long you can't make time for it. Use this to check in with yourself, have a break, reconnect with your intuition or just to let go! I love using on my commutes (all except when I'm driving) or when I want to drift into a deep sleep.
    I'm joined by Tom Sullivan who some of you will recognises from Episode 29, who I've meditated with before and absolutely love the way he teaches this practice. You can connect with Tom more at @astillmind.
    NOT YOUR FIRST TIME HERE? Skip ahead to 3:25 to go past the intro and straight into the meditation! You can use this multiple times - it never gets old! Each time we sit & practice, is a new opportunity to connect with ourselves in a new way.
    Share it with someone else who needs some "me-time"! 🧘
    With love & enjoy!
    Erika

    MM12 - Why you must revisit/edit/delete goals, what boundaries aren't & tips to stick to them (+ it's our bday)! 🎉

    MM12 - Why you must revisit/edit/delete goals, what boundaries aren't & tips to stick to them (+ it's our bday)! 🎉

    🎉🎉 IT'S OUR BIRTHDAY! We're One Year old! To celebrate this month, we are bringing you double episodes & some amazing guided meditations 🎉🎉
    Today I wanted to go back full circle to where it all began - what does balance mean for you? It's important to revisit this to ensure where we are heading, still aligns with what we want. How many times do you set yourself a goal to then never re-visit, edit or even delete it? If your perspective or ideal of balance shifts, then your goals need to be re-jigged as well. We can't be too protective or fixed with something we wrote in the past.
    Join me as we reassess your balance right now, look at how you might want that to be different and as a result, how that impacts goals you may have set for yourself. SPEAKING OF goals, have you made any progress to yours yet? If not, it might be because (a) your idea of balance has shifted as so they need to be revisited or (b) you aren't setting your boundaries correctly.
    I'll finish today's pod talking about boundaries, what they're not and how to stick to them!
    If you love today's pod, share the birthday love and send it to a friend who will also love it! As always, a review/rating left on apple podcast, is a slice earned in my heart .... really! ❤️

    38. Sharon & Juna on humanising our prejudices, balance and society, & the empathy piece 👐

    38. Sharon & Juna on humanising our prejudices, balance and society, & the empathy piece 👐

    No chat about Balance would be complete without a discussion on the balance in our society. Today I am joined by Crazy Biatch Asians podcast host's Sharon & Juna who chat with me all things racism, awareness and what the current landscape in Australia looks like.
    We can always do better! If we want to find balance, we need to acknowledge ourselves as moving parts of a coherent society. Tune in as we discuss casual and general racism, at which point it becomes insidious, how to get proper information, the role of politics and things you can do to help! The girls also give tips on how to work through any prejudices you have as well as share first hand experience with this present part of our society. I also ask them their thoughts on whether posting on social media is enough and loved their opinion on this, so I can't wait for you to dive in!
    Connect more with the girls on IG @crazybiatchasians or checkout their podcast directly here.
    Until next time,
    Stay Balanced!
