It’s time to stay balanced!
Balance is one of the things that many struggle with. It’s a simple concept that gets lost in all the daily chaos.
We end up rushing to make it to dinner with friends, cleaning the whole house, or a last-minute dash to do some shopping. We end up filling our day with so much, which throws us off balance.
It’s okay to keep busy but stay balanced! There is no need to try and fit it all in a couple of hours or plan it all in a day!
Balance can only happen if you want it to happen, maybe start by planning your days out. Allocate some time for socialising, chores, and then spend the rest of your time focusing on yourself, doing something you enjoy! Here are some simple ways to stay balanced that work:
Turn It Off
Disconnect on the weekend. I hear the excuses already, but try it, at least for one day or even a few hours each night. Put the phone down and turn off the computer. Give your work brain a rest.
Trim, Trim, Trim
It’s a given that if your life is overflowing you will never be able to achieve balance and manage it all. It’s just not possible. Say no to everything that is either not essential or doesn’t add something valuable to your life. Be ruthless!
Pay Attention to Your Health
We hear this over and over again, but usually only give it lip service. We know what we need to do, but it isn’t a priority until we have a health crisis.
Our health really does affect the quality of our lives and our work. We are far more productive and happier when we get enough sleep, eat a little healthier and fit in some type of activity.
Spend Time Alone
Making time for you is probably the hardest thing to do for the typical overworked and overwhelmed person, but it is crucial for lowering stress, increasing happiness and encouraging creativity.
Relationships Do Matter
Set aside quality time with your family and friends. Don’t just sit in front of the television, really connect and pay attention to those you care about.
Explore the World
Take a walk and pay attention to what’s going on around you. Take a new route, visit a new town or try being a tourist in your own. Attend a local performance, play amateur photographer or go to the park and watch children play. They really know how to enjoy life!
Laugh, joke, play, find your sense of humour, subscribe to a daily joke or even ask Alexa. Nothing makes the feel better as fast as a good old-fashioned belly laugh.
