Christy Wright is a bestselling author, speaker, seminary student, wife, and mother of two boys.
Women today typically deal with more stress than in past generations, and often struggle to find work/life balance. What is work/life balance? Is it a 50/50 split? How do mothers today juggle all that is required of them? Christy Wright, author of “Take Back Your Time: The Guilt-Free Guide to Life Balance”, provides tactical steps to create your own version of balance – where you get to decide what’s right for you!
Dr. Meg & Guest Christy Wright (Part 1)
Guest Christy Wright discusses the underlying narratives that mothers deal with on a regular basis, and provides a new definition of the word, balance. She poses the question, “What if balance isn’t something that you have to do, like a verb; what if it is something you can create in your life – to be able to feel a sense of balance in an out-of-balance world?” Another word for balance can be “peace” – You can be busy, and still be balanced, and at peace. You can be confident in your choices and decisions in how to spend your time. But how is this attained? Christy offers practical insights into what balance is, and provides 5 tactical steps to create your own version of balance in your life – you get to decide what’s right for you!
Dr. Meg & Guest Christy Wright (Part 2)
Dr. Meg and guest Christy Wright continue their engaging and informative conversation about balance, and how women can take back their time by creating their own balance that works for them. Fight the pressure of the culture that tries to tell you what a “good” mom is. Pinpoint what is stealing your time and energy. Decide what matters and then protect what matters by setting boundaries and saying no, when needed. It’s different for everyone. But the bottom line is: stop applying so much pressure on yourself. Find the balance that works for you, and begin to take back your time!
