Finding a Balance

Its hard to find a balance with everything we do. It can become easy to feel like you are being sucked under the tide and held there. No room for a breath or even to move around. I know that feeling.

The secret is to find a balance. You know what you are capable of. Here are some things you can do to find a balance. 🙂

You can do it in a few easy steps. Schedule yourself. Give yourself time to do each thing you want and still have a little fun.

Set boundaries between what you want to do and what you need to do and stick to it.

Know when to get help. Sometimes an extra set of eyes or hands can make a huge difference in a workload.

Know when to say no. This is probably the most important thing you can do. It is really hard to say no to some things, like if the boss keeps piling things on your desk or you know you have this and that to do. If you are feeling overburdened say no.

Know when to have fun. I mentioned this before, but seriously, it is really important to have fun sometimes. Even if it means taking a small break and doing something silly. Sometimes it will even refresh you.

Be sure to take time strictly for yourself. Being able to get some alone time, even ten minutes worth, is a good way to recharge the batteries.

    I couldn’t agree more with what you said about learning when to say ” no.” Even when you are in the workplace. By learning when enough is enough, by learning when your own personal limits are approaching or being broken, you can greatly reduce the amount of stress in your life and, consequently, successfully find balance in yaour life. This was an excellent article to be sure. Personally, I am looking forward to reading more great articles from you in the future. Keep up the good work!
