Ever feel that you can’t simply ‘unplug’ from work? What if there is an emergency? And someone needs you? Maybe your boss sent you one last email that you need to answer?
Whether you work from an office, create in a studio, raise the kiddos at home, or complete tasks remotely – we can be constantly connected to the lifeline of our phones and computer.
And yet – life continues on. And will pass us by if we aren’t careful.
So how the heck are ya supposed to complete your to-do list while also being present once the work day is over?
Well, it starts with some boundaries my friend.
One of my go-to tips is probably the opposite of what you want to dive into first thing in the morning to cross off the list – emails.
When you start off with emails, it will make you feel as if you didn’t accomplish any actual tasks. And it places you in a reactive posture, rather than a proactive one, to start off your day or your week.
Listen in to today’s episode as I walk through a handful of other boundaries I set to make sure I turn the work off and become present with my friends and family.
This episode is sure to help set the boundaries you need to live the present life you desire, sister.

When I was in college, I was a queen at scheduling, time management, and goal setting. My weeks were ordered around my class schedule.
Then, I graduated and life happened and I suddenly found myself juggling the role of soon to be wife, small business owner, and influencer.
And then we got married.
And moved five times in a year.
I became a pretty sucky friend and didn’t prioritize family time well. Every day felt a little less ordered and a little more chaotic. I’d work til all hours and considered it a win if I got real pants on in the morning.
Being basically a toddler at marriage, running a company that grew into a team of six, and navigating all that comes with moving several times is all a huge privilege but isn’t exactly easy.
And I burned out.
I would wake up with anxiety many mornings. The lack of order and consistency in my days robbed me of well…me.
About a month ago, I said ENOUGH is enough. Because yes although life was busy, my lack of discipline wasn’t life’s fault. It was mine.
Since then, I’ve been focusing on getting back to the basics.
Now, my weeks look really different already…with so much more space and structure. It’s not boring. It’s not even hard. It just takes a decision and incremental action.
If you’re feeling like your life is out of control, here’s one thing I’ve implemented into my weekly routine that has been LIFE CHANGING:
Every Sunday, I sit down and plan my week. I set my attainable personal, financial, spiritual, and physical goals. Then, build in the action steps I’ll take to achieve those attainable goals. Then, we BUILD in a way to celebrate what was accomplished that week with a Friday date night or weekend bonfire.
Planning not just to do important stuff or achieve goals but also to celebrate doing them sets me up for success because I’ve resolved to intentionally set important, yet attainable goals — and built in the time and action steps it takes to check those off ahead of time.
Where do you want to go this week, this month, this year?
How you prepare predicts if you’ll get there.
