Do you ever get the feeling that one day you will look up and your kids are ready to leave home, but you have only a handful of memories because you spent all your time pursuing your career. You may lack balance in your life. That needs to stop because.

“I should have spent more time at work” said no one ever at the end of his or her life. Might have some other regrets, but that’s not on the list. So here are a few ways to create more balance in your life.

  1. Take a vacation. Many companies offer paid vacation time. Use it accordingly. If you are self employed or don’t get paid vacation time, set aside money for a planned vacation and to cover expenses while you are away from work. Use that time to rest and rejuvenate.
  2. Create a schedule. The schedule should include work, time for family, alone time with your mate, and exercise at the very least. Make adjustments to the schedule as necessary.
  3. Make time for exercise. Exercise releases endorphines which helps to improve mood. It also keeps the body healthy and strong for as long as possible
  4. Eat a proper diet. Eating properly which includes eating fruits and vegetables, helps boost energy
  5. Rest. The average adult needs 7-8 hours per night of sleep to function optimally
  6. Learn how to say no. You can’t say yes to everything and everybody and expect to get much accomplished.
  7. Delegate responsibility. Especially if you are an entrepreneur. Outsource the tasks that are not your specialty (i.e. bookkeeping, website design, marketing). This will help shorten your workload and free up time for leisure activities.
Overall, the purpose of having balance is so that you can be more productive. With the proper tools in place, you can be more effective in your career and family. If you need assistance in finding your proper work life balance, contact me at 321-800-8520 or truechangelifecoach@gmail.com
