I like to surround myself with positive messages. Each morning I wake up to wall art that proclaims, “Be your own kind of beautiful.” I sip my morning coffee from a “Dream BIG” mug. And at work, I have a small sign on my desk that reads, “Enjoy Life. This is NOT a Rehearsal.”

So, the message behind the “Life is Balance” line of motivational weekend wear instantly spoke to me. Life is Balance founder and graphic designer Sheryl Checkman has always loved her design work. But, she recognized that the many leisure activities she enjoyed – from water sports to yoga – also help to define her. Together her diverse interests created crucial balance in her life. And so, Life is Balance was born.

Life is Balance lets you be you

The branded apparel celebrates what makes each of us special – the unique combination of sports, activities, hobbies, and interests that together make us who we are.

Life is Balance Tees for Guys and Girls, $28

Choose from inspirational text specific to a huge selection hobbies, activities, land sports, team sports, and even social consciousness topics.

A few examples include “Live Creatively” (for the artist), “Find Direction” (for the sailor), “Get in the Game” (for the baseball enthusiast) and “Preserve and Grow” (for the gardener). There is literally a design for everyone.

There are wonderful racerback tanks, short sleeved tees, and long sleeved tees for both guys and gals. There are even baseball caps, plus a kids’ line.

And, not only are these tanks and tees great looking, they feel wonderful, too. The high quality materials and workmanship take what could be an ordinary shirt (albeit an especially cute one) and instead, make it that one shirt you reach for again and again. The cotton fabric is super soft, lightweight and oh-so-breathable. With the addition of 2% Spandex, it also moves with you and washes incredibly well.

Life is Balance clothing is a socially responsible choice

Life is Balance is a 100% responsible company. These shirts are made in factories which are free of sweat shop conditions and that do not employ any child labor. The factories also are WRAP Certified (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production). And, they are all printed right here in the USA.

Of course, you’ll want these tanks and tees yourself (probably more than one!). But, I think that these shirts would also make much-appreciated, completely personal gifts. With Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Graduation just around the corner, your shopping could be completed in one fell swoop.

Best of all, you can even save on your order. Simply sign up for the Life is Balance newsletter and save 15% off of your order. To see the entire line of tanks and tees, visit Life is Balance and get inspired!
