Balance your Priorities
How much faster, busier, more hectic and demanding can our lives possibly get?
These past two months have been especially challenging for me with numerous family issues and my own health concerns. Although I study life balance and help others through my teaching, speaking, writing and coaching I found myself bursting at the same seams I’ve helped others better handle. All of my techniques and strategies were in my tool box and once I took a deep breadth, re-focused, and took things more slowly I was able to manage day-to-day and see the rainbow at the end of all the rain that was pouring down in my life.
Living a balanced life has become one of the biggest challenges in our society. However, as I’ve learned from my own experiences, until you get your thinking and actions aligned, you’ll naturally be out of balance. To be in balance, you need to align your life with your top priorities and live that way each and every day!
Your priorities come from your core — your personal values. They define what is really most important to you. They help guide your decisions about where and how you will spend your time, money and energy.
If you want to live a balanced life, begin by defining your core values and key priorities. Define what life balance means to you.
A blanket answer will not resonate with every one of you. We will have different answers to what’s important to us and what life balance looks like for us. Life balance is a concept that has a different meaning for each of us. What’s a balanced lifestyle for one, might not be balanced for another.
The key to getting the right balance, is making time for what’s important to you.
