What is Positively Balanced?
Positively Balanced was founded by Cassandra McCoy MAT, ATC, LAT with one goal in mind: to help improve the health and wellness of women everywhere and bridge the gaps seen in their care. Today, Cassandra works with women who are currently pregnant, postpartum or recovering from injury. The non-profit branch of Positively Balanced is called the Be HEaRd Women’s Health Platform. This platform strives to bridge the gap in women’s health by providing resources, education and conversation to all women.

Imposter syndrome tends to be a high achiever trait, and approximately 70 percent of all adults will experience it at some point in their life. Perfectionism is a closely related trait, where people feel like they have to be performing at 110% and firing on all cylinders at all times.
Stop occasionally and listen to how your kids speak to themselves and each other. Children hear much more than you think they do. They hear how you speak about your body, they hear how you speak to the other drivers on the highway, they hear how you speak when you are happy and when you are frustrated.
A routine, according to Merriam-Webster, is a habitual or mechanical sequence of an established procedure; a grind, groove, pattern, every-day, garden-variety, boring state or situation1. Routines are so ingrained in us that we don’t have to think or process in order to do. Many people like to cite celebrity routines as “goals” or what everyone should be doing, but your routine should be formed around you and your needs.
