How To Balance It All

@Chocl8FashnPR wants to know how I’m able to balance everything going on in my life, and I’m going to break down the 3 things I do to simplify it all.


  • Sometimes we think about the things we want to do, but you have to isolate a specific time to plan what you need to do.
  • For Example: When it comes to blogging, I have to plan my content ahead of time in order to get everything done.


  • Sometimes asking for help can seem scary or overbearing, but it will benefit you in the end.
  • If someone can help you, they will. So don’t be afraid to ask.
  • Set expectations and utilize the people around you.


  • While this is the last thing you want to hear, you have to accept the fact that you’re human.
  • You won’t be able to get everything done.
  • For Example: Gwen Stefani said in an interview that she accepts the fact that she fails at least once a day.
  • The goal should not be perfection, but progression.
  • Balance is what you make it.
