I don’t know about you, but as we get into November I start to feel bogged down with lots of business activity (maybe it’s the overflow/aftermath from Houston!) and then the holidays are on us. It’s sometimes hard to keep balance in my life. This summer I talked with a new friend, Laura Howard West, on how I manage to keep balance in my life and live my priorities. Laura owns a business called Joyful Entrepreneur. For me it’s all about scheduling what I say is important, whether that is editing the magazine, working on a new product, volunteering at my church, taking a yoga class or having an afternoon out with my husband, and then living up to that commitment. That’s not to say I don’t occasionally reschedule, but I try not to. Once the activity is written down, I know it’s something of value to me and I make my best effort to live the values. I think for many women, myself included, it’s easy not to set time for self-care. This is my way of doing that.

I’d love to hear how you balance your life!
