Feeling pushed in many different directions all at once should not be the norm. Achieving balance may help to pave a clear direction.

Individuals must work to balance many different life priorities – family, work, finances, hobbies, spirituality, fitness, social life, and more. Disruptions to balance may lead to stress associated with not being able to fulfill obligations or feeling like you should ‘always be doing more’. If you find yourself out of balance, how can you re-establish focus and find your way forward?  The resources in this section will lead you through a journey of reflection and awareness that centralizes on the principles of self-care in quest of self-actualization.
