Work-Life Balance by Sandy Morander

While this 2-part video series goes by the name, “Work-Life Balance” Sandy encourages us to drop the word “balance” and instead seek to find the best rhythm that works for your particular life stage and circumstances. In her 1st video Sandy helps us explore what it means to take a holistic approach to our lives that begins with care for ourselves, that will then enable us to care for others. Holistic care includes physical and spiritual health plus taking time to examine what is most important in our lives. It means creating a support network and learning to be present in the moment – wherever we are. The 2nd video focuses on finding a work-life balance for families- whatever family looks like for you and me. Sandy talks about the importance of setting your family up for healthy lifetime habits that include food/meal times, playing together, and sleep. While recognizing that families are often overscheduled and struggle to find quality time together, Sandy offers encouragement and options that can help parents lead by example.
