Advice for a balanced life
Thank you so much for stopping by! My blog is centered around the idea of creating balance in our lives. When one thing is out of whack-a toxic relationship, a stressful job, or unhealthy habits…it can throw everything off. Balance is essential because simply put, a balanced life is a happy life.
I’m a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and I like to dish out my advice with heartfelt compassion, but I also want to keep it real because no one has time for sugar coated answers. I’ve known from a young age that counseling and writing were my passions. When I can intertwine the two, I am in my happy place.
I recently started a meditation practice and am AMAZED by the benefits. It erases any anxiety I feel that day and leaves me in such a clear headed, calm state of mind. I compare it to a power nap because although I feel zen AF, I also feel energized. I’ll be taking you along on my meditation journey. I really hope you will try it out, too, or find a stress reliever that vibes with you. So important to have ways to cope with our crazy, busy lives!
Have a question for me? I’d love to hear from you. I have over 10 years of experience as a counselor. More importantly, I may have stood where you are standing and would love to shed some new light on an old problem. Trying to be a woman today who has it ALL put together (while making it look effortless) can be challenging, if not impossible. No one’s life is perfect, no matter what you see on Instagram. And that’s kind of the beauty of life, right? We are all works in progress.
Ask Erica strives to inspire you to find that delicate healthy balance between your relationships, passions, career, physical and mental health- so you can live your perfectly imperfect life to the fullest.
Thanks again for connecting. Hopefully, you leave feeling a bit more inspired.
