I am the world's worst procrastinator. When it comes to getting important things done, I'd rather stick my head under the pillow and hope that they'll get done by themselves. Or become no longer important.

It's not that I don't have a little time to do those things. Or even that I don't want to. I just have the ability to waste the time I do have on inconsequential things, like entering book giveaway contests. There is just this rush feeling I get when I find a "You Won" email in my inbox that keeps me going! At least it's an inexpensive addiction, right?

Or not. Time is pretty valuable these days. They say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.

Needless to say, I don't perceive my life to be very balanced. I scored quite horrifically on the Life Balance Analysis found in The Momnificent! Life: Healthy and Balanced Living for Busy Moms by Lori Radun.

It's time to get my head out from under the pillow and strive for healthy and balanced living.

Overview

This book is all about balance. "Balance occurs when who you are, what you want to do in life, and what you value are aligned with your thoughts, activities and choices."

Radun looks at eight components of your life - personal development, spirituality, fun and enjoyment, relationships, health & aging, personal finance, career & profession, and home & family - and, after helping you assess each component, gives you tips and strategies for achieving balance within those components. Each of the 59 chapters has a Take Action Assignment, as well, to motivate you to make the changes needed to achieve balance.

My Review

I started this book trying to read straight through it - thinking that's what I'd need to do to write a review.

I have experienced this book. It is more than just information but a way to examine your life....to be both challenged and encouraged. Each chapter has very relevant topics and practical application. There are questions for personal reflection on each topic. "Healthy and balanced" are wishes deep in the heart of moms and Lori brings this book as a map for the journey. I hope you will read this book and allow the wisdom that is in it to fill your life. I find myself reaching to read this resource again and again. You will be glad that you invested in this book. Go Moms!!!!..."Be Momnificent".

Format: Paperback
The Momnificent Life; Healthy and Balanced Living for Busy Moms, is a guide for all moms no matter what activities you balance. Whether you juggle your home life with work, school, church, sports, or charities, every mom has a busy and hectic life that can easily be encouraged, advised, influenced and supported by this book. The author lays a careful plan and guideline to help moms in areas such as time, managemnt, financial intimacy, personal development, career and health among many others. The goal is to help moms discover themselves aside from, yet in tune with, their children and families. It's a book of how to manage life and stress, showing how you can have it all. It is about balance and how to take a nurturing approach to motherhood.

The book starts off with an introduction that shares the eight components to having a "Momnificent" life. Each component is summarized and later expanded on throughout the book. I found this overview very useful to the rest of the book. There is a wealth of knowledge in The Momnificent Life. The first time you read it will not be your last. I found myself re-reading specific chapters that dealt with my own needs as a mom and going back to it as a guide and re-fresher. The author carefully explains life as a balance process. If it is tipped to much in one direction it can easily burn us out. No one activity is good all the time, they are better in a balance with other activities, just the same as our health and eating habits. She clearly states that a balanced life is different for everyone because balancing is personal and in regards to what is important to you. She gives charts and assignment suggestions throughout the book help the reader to better understand themselves.

I really enjoyed this book!

The Momnificent! Life-- Healthy and Balanced Living for Busy Moms is the book that many mom's have cried out to the heavens for. "Where is the manual?" Well, Lori Radun, a life coach, public inspirational speaker and author has answered the cries of busy mom's with this book! As a full-time worker outside the home, homeschooling mother and wife I can attest to the struggles of keeping everything in balance while maintaining my sanity.

This book consists of 59 chapters full of valuable information and ponderings separated into eight sections which include: Personal Development; Spirituality; Fun and Enjoyment; Relationships; Health and Aging; Personal Finance; Career and Professions; and Home and Family.

The author begins the book by explaining the eight components to living a momnificient life. Some of the components include: "confidence", which is knowing and accepting who you are; the ability to set healthy boundaries so that we know what we will and will not tolerate; and having healthy and supportive relationships. She explains these eight components to lay the foundation for the rest of the book.

In chapter one, which is a must read, Lori guides the reader into the land of self discovery and analyzing your own life balance using the Wheel of Life. When you complete this exercise you will discover the areas that you are most satisfied with in your life and, of course, the areas that you are dissatisfied with. From there you are encouraged to read the chapters that follow based on your discovery. I'm sure that there is a chapter in there for you! I found several!
