Take Back Your Time…The Guilt-Free Guide to Life Balance

Are you addicted to productivity and sometimes feel slightly out of balance? I thought so! In today’s show, we talk “balance” and about doing what matters most versus worrying about how much to get done. My guest Christy Wright, a Dave Ramsey personality, is a busy mom with three young kids, a bustling career, and she knows what it’s like to be stretched too thin.  

Christy redefines balance and gives a clear path on how to achieve balance and be guilt-free. This is a power-packed episode full of great tips and strategies to win the day, one day at a time. 

Specifically, here is what we cover in today’s episode:

  • How to become balanced in an unbalanced world.
  • Life balance isn’t about doing everything for an equal amount of time; it’s about doing the right thing at the right time.
  • Four reasons why we feel out of balance.
  • The solution to fighting too many fires.
  • Prioritize your day and recognize what is most important.
  • Christy shares the best habits to own her day.
  • The five steps to the path to balance.
  • How to take back your life from your to-do list.

“It’s not about productivity, it’s about doing what matters.”
