Bringing the Balance


Do you ever feel like your life is a bit of a circus, and you're the juggler trying to keep all the balls in the air? Between work, family, and personal stuff, it can be challenging trying to fit everything in, and keep everyone happy. Well listen up my friends, I have some tips that will hopefully help you bring some balance into to your life.


Your To Do List

Before the craziness of the day starts, grab your coffee, and take some time over your “to-do” list. Prioritize your tasks based on their importance and urgency. Like most people, you probably have a hundred things on your plate, but realistically, how much are you actually going to get done in a day? Remember, it's also okay to say no to some things. While we might like to think we’re superheroes, we’re actually not.


Take your breaks

Another important key to balancing your day is taking breaks. It's so important to step away from your computer, stretch your legs, and give your brain a rest. Maybe take a walk outside, do some yoga, go grab a coffee with a friend or just take a moment to admire the view. Whatever you do, make sure it's something that makes you happy.


Bring in the joy!

While we’re on the subject of happiness, make sure you're doing things that bring you joy. Tomorrow is not guaranteed so why waste time on doing things you hate? Find easy and simple ways to incorporate things into your day that make you happy, whether it's listening to music, reading a book, exercising or snuggling with your cat… or dog.


Mindfulness

Another way to bring balance into your day is to be mindful of what your thoughts and emotions are doing. If you're feeling overwhelmed or anxious, stop, take a deep breath and try to focus on the present moment and your breathing. We can’t change what’s happened in the past and we can’t control what may happen in the future. Stay focussed on the here and now, and remember that everything will work out in the end.


Laugh

Finally, don't forget to bring in some laughter.


Bringing balance into your day doesn't have to be about overhauling your day. It's all about finding what works for you and sticking to it. Prioritize your tasks, take breaks, say no (or not right now), do things that make you happy, be mindful of your thoughts and emotions, and don't forget to laugh.


"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." So, take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy the ride.
