As a child or even teen, our parents help us define the balance in our lives. But once we head off to school or out into the world of work, that balance becomes our responsibility.
Once upon a time our balance was structured around our need to eat, sleep and get our daily dose of exercise, but……notice that word came up again, life got a little more demanding and the balance included homework. On we went into the world of high school, college and eventually work. At every step along the way, life brought new opportunities, more challenges and greater need for balance. But, those increased responsibilities, opportunities and challenges undermined our attempts at balance and in some cases, they may even remove balance from our radar.
What are the “buts” impeding your balance? After all, having balance in our lives helps influence our sense of satisfaction and success. For some, balance includes a calm and blissful state brought on by organization and rhythm in life. For others it is a constant stream of thoughts, actions and involvements that keep one in motion. What is balance for you? What is getting in the way? What “but” can you address in your daily routine and use to assist in finding your balance?
