Ep 74: Finding Balance with Helen Hopkins


As the saying goes, ‘we all juggle multiple hats’ as parents and finding balance seems to be illusive to most of us. Some days we feel we’re acing it, yet I think I speak for most of us when I say we more often than not feel like we are constantly teetering on the edge of exhaustion.

Helen Hopkins is a Wellness Coach and approaches balance from the perspective of habits and how we can find opportunities for balance in those habitual ‘dead times’. You will quite literally be blown away by her simple techniques – a must listen!


Here are the highlights:

(03:05) Helping people find their unique balance

(08:57) Our definition of balance is subjective

(13:13) 32,000 decisions every day

(19:03) Changing habitual habits for quick wins

(25:17) Looking after someone else starts with looking after yourself

(30:00) Give yourself permission

(34:11) It’s ok to not be ok
