Podcast Episode Summary
Karen Schopoff Rooff is a health and fitness coach and nationally recognized public speaker, entrepreneur, wife, and mom of 3 kids. She is considered a Women's Wellness Warrior, founded Balance Personal Fitness, and runs the blog Well Balanced Women.
We talk about creating balance between the most important aspects of our lives- from fitness to family to personal time. Using balance to even the load of our responsibility and level off the peaks and valleys. As well as setting boundaries and letting go of expectations to make sure we can free time for ourselves.
We also touch on how modern life forces us out of sync with our physiology. How society's demands of delayed child rearing misaligns with hormonal changes in the body and how we can use those boundaries and managing expectations to address the "Life Laundry".
"...if we don't have boundaries we are spending our lives... we're spending our energy, our vitality on what other people want."
"One of the beautiful things of being human is we are all different. So, what I hate to do, someone else loves to do. If you can find that match, everybody wins."
