Happy Monday, beauties!
I’m excited to share a new Real Women, Real Balance interview with you today.
She loves to talk about her personal experiences in life, parenthood and marriage in hopes that she can help others feel less alone.
Talking about life, parenthood, and marriage in hopes that others will feel less alone: A Q&A with Chrissy Powers
Hi Chrissy! Will you start by telling us a little bit about yourself?
What inspired you to start your business?
What does a typical day look like for you?
Wake up around 6:30, have a cup of coffee while reading a devotional and journal some thoughts until one of my kids needs me, then school drop off and then maybe meet a friend for coffee or get some exercise with my toddler, nap time usually comes after a morning of getting his energy out and then I answer emails, write, edit photos or record a podcast.
I’m curious, what do you do when you’re not working?
Hang out with friends… we love to meet for coffee and take our kids to the park. Lately though, since I’ve been pregnant, I’ve done a whole lot of resting! Lots of Netflix binges because I’ve had pretty bad nausea… Our favorite thing to do without kids is to meet friends at the beach on a Saturday morning with donuts and coffee and surfboards.
As you know, The Balanced Life is all about empowering women to approach health & fitness with a balanced mindset. How do you handle the pressure as a woman to look or act a certain way?
What does balance mean to you during your current season of life?
Balance during my current session of life looks like answering emails later than is socially acceptable ha ha, taking on less work, resting more, going to bed early, and writing down ideas and goals I want to achieve when I have more energy.
Who/what inspires you to keep living well?
What is your best tip for maintaining a healthy lifestyle in the midst of a busy life?
Make sure your priorities are in the right order and make sure to make time for yourself even if its 5 minutes of listening to a meditation in the car with your kids!
