Kelly jumpstarts the staying healthy in 2020 conversation by talking about balance. “I think that everybody talks about work-life balance. And there is no real true balance. I believe that balance is a choice. It’s making the best choices for you at that time, and my choices change on a day-to-day basis, that balance changes. It really is what’s best for me. It’s about setting boundaries based on what your balance is, what you’re trying to get to and then creating habits and non-negotiables. That is really what changed it for me in 2014”.
“In 2014, I hit rock bottom and ended up in the emergency room the night before”, she continues. “At that time, our biggest conference client, the night before that conference, I ended up in the hospital. Thinking that I was having a heart attack when in fact I was just having high anxiety, but it was also not taking care of myself. The doctors said, “You’re not having a heart attack tonight. But if you don’t stop living on Coca-Cola, and if you don’t start moving and if you’re don’t take awareness of the 35 pounds that you’ve gained in three years, you are going to end up here.”
