The Balance Theory

Health & Wellness Podcasts

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.
