Balancing Your Life

August 01, 2012

Too many of us put our own needs aside to take care of others.  We have a hard time saying “no” to requests we don’t have time for.  We give up what we enjoy to make others happy.

When a person places the needs of loved ones over their own, they are disrupting their own life balance.  In order to live a balanced life, you must take the time and care to explore your passions and satisfy your own needs.

Making yourself a priority allows you to become a stronger support as a mom, wife, partner and friend. You will feel more connected, confident, inspired and joyful. 

Set aside “you” time each week.  This is your time to do as you wish. Explore a new hobby or simply catch up on some much rest and relaxation.  

Find an activity that you enjoy.  Doing something that you like increases confidence and improves overall health.

Because we “can’t do it all,” learn to ask for assistance when needed.  This will help you ease stresses and free up more time in your schedule.

Keeoing a journal can help you connect with your inner voice and quiet your mind.  It also provides helpful answers and assists in the process of self discovery.

Some of us spend a lifetime caring for others.  It’s now time to focus on you and get inspired. Create a list of projects you might like to explore. Use your scheduled time to experiment and purse these new opportunities.
