Balance Minder has created a Facebook Group called Balance Minder Pivot Well, with the mission statement: Positive connection is the key to good health and wellbeing.
This Facebook Group is an online community of people who want to expand their village during the life changing journey which is COVID 19.
We are all running some type of business. It could be as part of a family enterprise, working for a company, conducting a small business or maybe at this stage in your life the business of Parenthood.
Our connection is we are all doing a balancing act and the best way to keep on track is through connection.
This group is led by Leanne Simpson, Wellness Educator and Coach and Accredited Time Out Tai Chi Instructor at Balance Minder.
Through mindfulness, gentle exercise and a whole lot of support, Leanne hopes to inspire others to take time out for themselves. Leanne’s mission through this online community is to help us thrive and be positive examples in mental wellness for our whole community.
Everyone is welcome in this group; and we ask you to be respectful of each other. Everyone is fighting their own battle, but together we can lighten the load.

In the Balance Minder Podcast we look at the positive affects that connection has on our overall heath and wellbeing.
We chat with community leaders about – Why it is for themselves and the different organisations they represent to connect. We ask them to provide a takeaway item for us to use and share with our own tribes.
We ponder our own Self Talk. It is about being your own best friend, laughing with, encouraging, praising and sometimes, even giving yourself a little swift kick in the butt when required, but remembering by helping yourself, you also help others.
…wellness is a complete body and mind solution
Moving the body is only half the job. We believe in training the mind as well for optimal wellbeing. It is about improving strength and flexibility, also helping to reduce stress, depression and anxiety, leaving you with more energy and stamina.
We respect our bodies by only performing exercises that feel right. We respect our minds by offering it that chance to feel “balanced”. We respect each other by supporting one another on our journeys to better health, no matter where the starting line is.
…in making health + wellness accessible for all
Feeling fit and healthy is for every body. All should have the chance to improve the health and wellness of their body and mind. That’s why we offer solutions to improve your wellness; no matter what your fitness level, health or injury condition, or time available.
