How to Achieve Work Life Balance – Today’s Woman Reveals Secrets


ADELAIDE, Australia January 2015 – Many women hold on to the notion that ‘having it all’ is achievable – the close family, successful career and secure lifestyle. But trying to figure out how to achieve work life balance is an idealistic pressure that society puts on women, and women unfailingly put on themselves.

Some believe that achieving the perfect work life balance is an impossible aspiration, because the term itself lacks harmony and creates division by implying the two – work and life – are in competition and need a separate focus. But the truth is that work is completely intertwined with life.

According to Miriam Castilla, author, speaker and founder of Today’s Woman, work life balance strategies are all about prioritising. When life’s ‘to-do list’ becomes prioritised, a woman can feel content and relaxed, rather than living a life where everything is spiralling out of control.

“Women should consider redefining society’s view of ‘having it all’, and find their own definition,” Miriam says. “Generally, the women feeling overwhelmed and ‘crazy busy’ aren’t focusing on themselves, worrying too much about doing things for other people and trying to meet outside expectations.

“When women continue to put themselves last, they’re left feeling angry, sad, overwhelmed, stressed or anxious. If they focus on the things truly important to them before taking care of others first, they’ll have the answer to the question, ‘what is work life balance’.”

Miriam’s book, Today’s Woman – Life Balance Secrets: Practical Tips & Tricks for Overcoming Stress, Guilt & Overwhelm – focuses on work life balance strategies for women feeling undervalued and stressed. According to Miriam, taking time to ‘refill the bucket’ actually creates more time in the day, because “unscrambling a stressed out brain” creates more space to think and prioritise.

“Recognise the early signs of being overwhelmed and learn to step away. Schedule regular time out just for you and learn how to release any guilt you might hold around that,” Miriam says. “Nourish your brain with healthy food, and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine.”

Kelly Baker-Jamieson, Telstra Business Woman of the Year, SA, 2011, says, “Miriam Castilla has a true gift in nurturing and inspiring other women to be their best. Meeting Miriam as mentors in a start-up program has taken us on a wonderful journey where we have found both friendship and a new business venture. And what fun we are having – it hardly seems like work with this amazing woman involved!”
