Learn how to increase your ability to focus, why balance is essential for the brain and how to go through your week with more ease.
Some say work-life balance is a myth. Some say it’s crucial in todays world.
You probably heard both sides. Who's right?
For driven and ambitious entrepreneurs this is more difficult to answer, then maybe for someone with a regular working schedule. Especially when you love your work, the lines between work and private life can become blurred.
Have you ever experienced this?
While serving clients and the constant acquisition of more ideal clients, you have calls to make, e-mails to write, the next projects in line, a launch coming up and so on.

How to make it easy
First things first. Let go of the pressure that work and private life needs to be crystal clear separated. Work-life-balance doesn’t require a strict separation between your private time and working time.

Do you want to feel more calm, satisfied, fulfilled and productive?
Then make sure that you'll make time for these 6 areas every week.

Take an honest look at your calendar. Identify which areas above are falling too short in your life right now and need more attention in your weekly schedule.
Start with 10 minutes!
