why does life seem so overwhelming?

Why does life seem so overwhelming? We set goals and have good intentions, but there never seems to be enough time, money or energy for achieving life’s biggest goals.

Instead of making progress, our lives seem even more out of balance.

Well, for the next few weeks, I’d like to help you overcome the overwhelm and work on building a new foundation to find balance in every major life category.        

How will we do that?

Using a strategy I learned from Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl, authors of the bestselling book, Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World: identify where you’re out of balance, then jot down three tasks a day that will move you toward balance in that area of your life.    

Here’s an example:    

If your finances are a mess and credit card debt is causing you extra stress, your to-do list might look like this:

1. Make a list of all debts in order of total amount due

2. Make an extra payment (today) on the smallest debt while still making minimum payments on the others

3. Investigate ways to make extra money to pay off all debt


Yes, your life can be better. You CAN overcome the overwhelm. To start, identify your biggest stressor in each of “The 7 F’s of Oola” (below). Write down your list in a journal or on your smartphone, so you can refer back to it. Are you out of balance in:

Fitness: Excess weight? Poor nutrition? Little exercise?

Finance: Crushing debt? No retirement plan? Too many bills? 

Family: Need boundaries? Marriage on life support?

Field: Career stress? No free time? Low pay or benefits? 

Faith: No real relationship with God? Need a daily practice? 

Friends: Toxic friends that bring you down? Need mentors? 

Fun: No time for fun? Waiting until you’re older or retired?

Whatever is stressing you, let’s work together to build a foundation for your life into one that’s fulfilling, purposeful and growing. I’ve joined forces with Dave and Troy to bring my community the Oola formula via a 10 week coaching program designed to transform your life, your finances, your relationships and more. Message me and we can jump on a call about it.

Then stay tuned for the next few weeks for even more ways to bring balance to your life . . . Oola style.
