Life balance is something that we all aspire to. While it may seem like a goal you will never achieve, there are some simple steps you can take to gain control of your life instead of it having control of you. Imagine living a life in which your time is your own and where your opportunities for fun and enjoyment are equally balanced with opportunities for work.
Try making these simple changes to reclaim your time and achieve more balance:
- Decide that when you do something with friends or family that you will be fully engaged in the process. Do not allow yourself to have a negative attitude or be distracted by other things. You will find yourself enjoying the time and activities much more.
- Re-evaluate your traditions – If the old ones are causing you too much stress, too much money, and too much energy, choose some new ones.
- Choose to be “out of pocket.” We need to choose to be out of pocket more often. No cell phones, no email, no texting, and no appointments.
How nice would it be to have more of your time be your own? Give these simple changes a try.
