Beautiful post Emma, thank you. I'm a big advocate of #14. I think of work/life balance as if I am the sun and all the areas of my life are like planets in orbit around me. Family, health, hobbies, work, love - if one of those planets falls out of orbit it can mess up everything for all the other planets and the sun. I wish I could take credit for that analogy; but it was something a Guru told me 20 years ago. I'm glad it stuck!

As this is something I personally struggle with quite often, I find this analogy super helpful. Thanks for sharing it!
