Turn you phone off 2 hours before you go to bed at night
Get a coach (book a power hour here)

Join a Book Club (message me to join mine)

Attend an event that focuses on your balance
Do something YOU enjoy

When you start to make adjustments, you will notice how quickly it can bring you back into balance.

Top tip: Print the framework out, and refer to it whenever you make a decision (big or small!) every day for 1 week. Then try for 3 weeks. Then create it as an every day routine and method for you to tap into your self awareness.

The BEST thing about coaching is that you create accountability to ensure that you implement the changes you want to see in your life and business.
If you're not being 100% honest with yourself, a coach is someone who will let you know without judgement so that you can commit to being the best version of you.
A coach can share with you new tools to create balance in your life, whilst reaching your goals, without you having to rack your brain for inspiration.
It's someone who is on your side, without you having to constantly speak with your friends and family about whatever is on your mind.
