Maintaining a balance in life can be difficult when times get busy.  Especially if you are pursuing a career in the talent industry, your schedule can get hectic. 

Below are some amazing tips on maintaining balance from Success:

1. Assess your life as it is now.

Looking at ourselves as we really are is the first step in restructuring our lives. Do you feel physically exhausted, mentally stagnant or find yourself without close relationships? Would you call yourself a workaholic? Do you feel a lack of spiritual alignment? If you answer yes to any of these questions, your life is probably out of balance.

2. Make a conscious decision to become balanced.

Choosing reality as our basis of decision is the second step to becoming balanced. Achieving balance allows us to reach our goals and our purpose in life while creating less stress to do so. A conscious decision to change is now in order.

3. And make that decision on a minute-to-minute schedule.

We are all instant forgetters. Remember all those resolutions you made way back in January? Renewing our decisions on a daily, minute-to-minute basis allows us to ease into change, instead of expecting things to change overnight.

4. Set goals in every area of your life.

Set realistic goals in all areas of your life to assist yourself in remembering that your ultimate goal is balance. Your goals should cover:

• Your relationships
• Your physical being
• Your spiritual alignment
• Your mental development
• Your job
• Your finances

5. Be willing to take the risk.

Being willing to assess ourselves and take the risk to change will not only enhance our lives, but you will feel more energy and an expanded awareness of what life is all about. Acknowledging that balance is essential and recreating your life to encompass your decision is worth all the risk.

6. Make time to reassess yourself on a daily basis.

None of us can really know how well we are doing with change in our lives unless we are willing to reassess our position. Don’t feel that your decisions are made in concrete; if something feels that it isn’t working, be willing to look at a new decision. Make time for yourself every day, in a quiet meditative state, to relax and “check yourself out.”

Tip Tuesday – Connections!

#TipTuesday is a series MAX Agency — one of the top Toronto talent agencies  — does every week where we share helpful tips for the industry. This could be tips on auditions, bookings, beauty, fashion and more!

 

Whether it be your personal, family or work life, making connections with others is imperative for success.

 

Especially within the talent industry, making positive connections with others will help you in the long run.  Regardless of who the person you meet is, you never know when a positive relationship will benefit you.

 

People often discuss how who you know is important; that is true.  The person you smiled to and had small talk with may be able to help you in the future. 

While many people struggle with being outgoing or “putting themselves out there”, this doesn’t have to be daunting. 

 

For example, making positive first impressions is easy.  Be mindful of your mannerisms.  Ask yourself: Are you approachable?  Are you smiling?  What’s your body language like?

Whether it’s small talk with another talent at an audition or simply presenting yourself in a positive manor in an audition, these little things really can help you in the future.

 

Remember to always be mindful of how you come across to others!

Tip Tuesday – Hello Sunshine!

#TipTuesday is a series MAX Agency — one of the top Toronto talent agencies  — does every week where we share helpful tips for the industry. This could be tips on auditions, bookings, beauty, fashion and more!

 

The warm summer weather is in full force!  Whether you’re going on vacation or simply enjoying the summer rays of Ontario, it’s important to be aware of the heat!

The sun can be extremely damaging to your skin and hair.  Being in the talent industry, it’s important to be hyper aware of the sun’s effects.

Here are some tips to deal with the heat:

DON’T skimp on SPF!
You need about two palm-size portions to protect your whole body.

DON’T leave your hat at home.
Keep cool in the heat by throwing on a hat! A 3-inch brim increases the protection you get from sunscreen alone!

DO take an indoor lunch break.
Duck into the AC for an iced mocha break with friends from 11 am–1 pm! (That’s when the sun’s rays are the worst.)

DO decode the SPF labels.
There’s a lot written on a sunscreen bottle. Look for an SPF with the term “broad spectrum protection,” which means it protects against the sun’s most damaging UVA and UVB rays.

DO find shade.
There’s no shame in picking a spot under the umbrella! It reduces the risk of burning, and friends will come hang out on your towel when they’re looking for a place to cool down.

DON’T leave home without your SPF lip gloss!
The skin on your lips is extra fragile, so the more you reapply, the more that glossy layer is working to protect your lips from burning and peeling!

DO invest in quality shades. 
Protect your eyes with UV-reflecting sunglasses as you people-watch poolside!

It’s important to enjoy this beautiful weather, however, put yourself first!  Take care of your health and looks by following these steps.  Remember, it’s important to look and feel yourself before attending any auditions, etc!
