The Balance Theory

The Balance Theory

This podcast is made for ambitious women who feel like they are constantly stuck having to choose between “work” and “life”. If you never have time for the things you really want to be doing, constantly find your self care or down time is rushed and unproductive (or non-existent) and regularly experience guilt and that feeling you should be doing more, I know exactly how you feel. It’s time to redefine what we’ve told ourselves about life balance and get inspired to own a better and more sustainable way to achieve it. And yes, that means ditching the work-life balance formula. Tune in to be inspired by bi-weekly episodes on with guests including Kelsey Wells, Steph Claire Smith, Laura Henshaw, Leah Itsines, Sarah Davidson, Katie Williams and more. Join us every Monday for a guest episode and every Thursday for a solo episode by your host Erika De Pellegrin. If you’re ready to take balance back into your own hands, then this podcast is for you. Stay inspired on the go and connect with us on IG @thebalancetheory, TikTok @thebalancetheory by joining our Facebook group or subscribe on our website here.

This is the literal dilemma I had that prompted me to start this podcast... that is, thriving in busyness and loving being busy, but also feeling guilty for it. So I sat down and reframed what being busy meant, how it made me feel and how to ensure I didn't get swept up in the "busyness" to a point where I neglected my wellness, my wellbeing. And today, I take you exactly through the process I undertook to arrive in a p...

I think the fear of failing, and the emotions associated with 'new beginnings' often prevent people from getting started A LOT more than they should. I share some insights into how w...

Today I want to chat about something I have recently felt which initially, felt extremely alien and foreign to me, and that is the feeling of being lost. At first, these feelings were uncomfortable for me. I resisted them and felt like I should have my sh*t sorted, but this resistance only pushed me further into the view that this feeling of being lost was bad and I needed a way out ASAP.


As time has gone on and as I’ve sat with al...

Negative feedback is something we’re all familiar with - whether it be in a professional capacity or via a personal relationship. It can come as constructive criticism or abrupt commentary, either way, it impacts us. I don’t know about you, but in the moment when receiving negative feedback, I usually plunge into emotions like embarrassed, shy, disappointed, guilty or any other yucky type of emotion.


And so, today I want to empower...

Today I want to use this BTS to dive into the relationship category of balance, which is not one I’ve jumped into much on a solo episode before. When we have ties or relationships that are ‘toxic’ or have an element where something just feels off about them, they can really impinge on our balance, and critically, the way we show up as ourselves.


So, in todays’ episode you’re going to hear my thoughts on how to choose relationships ...
