3 Ideas, 2 Quotes, and 1 Question to help you reflect on your work-life wellness and balance habits this week.


3 Ideas from Me


“Most people know what to do regarding living healthier lifestyles and being more connected with our families. The problem often resides in turning knowledge and thoughts into actions.

A is for Action. Thoughts are needed; they are prerequisites to action. However, it is in the actions that we choose to take that leads to change.”


“Our actions can get turbocharged when we attach a bullish expectation. B is for bullish. Being bullish means, you expect and believe favorable outcomes will result from your actions.

If your action is exercise, have the bullish expectation that you will begin to feel more energized and have a greater sense of well-being. If your action is taking your spouse on a dinner date, have the bullish expectation that each of you will talk, laugh, and feel an increase in connection. Have faith my friends, expect favorable outcomes, be hopeful, and look for the good because we always find what we are looking for.”


“C is for commitment. Don’t be a one-and-done person. It will take more than one exercise workout to experience more energy. It might take more than one dinner date with your spouse to feel more connected.

Don’t be dismayed by being impatient. Commit to the process. Be in it for the long haul because work-life balance is a philosophy on living a flourishing life and how to help your loved ones flourish in their lives.”
