Book | Get the Balance Right
DISCOVER A user-friendly framework for understanding balance and imbalance, easy ways to identify where you need to intervene to create more balance, and practical techniques for achieving balance.
The first three chapters explain the concepts of balance and imbalance, as well as the role of stress in maintaining either state, and the way in which demands and resources contribute to either balance or imbalance. You’ll discover your unique way of experiencing stress, and then, once you have an idea of where and how your stressors occur, how to effectively manage that stress to maintain balance. The guidelines are user-friendly, practical and easy to apply. A whole chapter is dedicated to the most important resource: time. Without it, the rest of the resources cannot be taught or implemented, so you’ll need to not skip this one.
Chapters 5 to 15 focus specifically on the concept of balance for working mothers, showing you how to become confident and successful jugglers of all the many balls you are responsible for. These chapters introduce you to a wide range of potential coping resources, in the form of both knowledge and practical tips. You’ll find fast, effective tips on juggling these different roles without dropping balls, and without losing sight of yourself and your personal needs. This balance is essential—if you’re in a state of imbalance, you will not juggle well for long, and may begin dropping balls all over the place. Learning how to juggle different size balls, different shapes, heavy balls and light ones—all of that is covered too.
About the author:
DR COLINDA LINDE has been a clinical psychologist since 1993 and is the former chairperson of SADAG. She specialises in CBT for anxiety disorders (panic, social phobia), and works extensively in the areas of stress management, work-life balance, sleep issues, assertion and mindfulness.
“Get The Balance Right was created after the birth of my twins, starting with an explanation of balance versus imbalance, what stress does to your health, how to identify your stressors and coping resources, and then a core model of what the modern working parent juggles daily (explained in chapter 5). The rest of the book gives you chapters for each area of juggling, with each of them modeled on a CBT session. The final chapter gives you ways to juggle between the categories, so you have a good balance between the areas of work, health, relationships and home. The chapters are broken into comfortable bite-sized chunks, which even an exhausted parent can manage!”
