There’s not a single person on this earth who doesn’t wish they had more time. We’re all busy juggling life’s many demands – going to work, driving the kids from here to there, running errands, etc. Our hectic schedules often cause secondary priorities, like hitting the gym or doing the things with love, to be cut from the itinerary in general.
If you’re having a hard time finding time to read a book or even just take a second to relax, you need to work on balancing your obligations in life. Here are five tips to help you find the balance in your life:
If you have trouble saying no, you might find yourself working late more often than not, doing more carpool runs and leading bake sales every weekend. You need to establish boundaries and resist taking on more than you can handle. It’s okay to say no and let someone else take charge every once in a while. No one will think less of you, and you’ll be so happy about the extra time you have that you wouldn’t care even if they did.
Physical activity is crucial to your health and wellbeing. Even if it’s a ten minute walk around the building at lunch or parking your car a little farther away than usual, getting your body moving will rejuvenate you and give you more energy. Though you won’t have any more time, you’ll be able to get more done in the time you do have. Plus, exercise releases happiness-inducing endorphins, and who doesn’t like being happy?
Live in the Moment
Many of us get so caught up in the day to day that we forget to actually live life. Make an effort to be more present during your day – take in your surroundings during your commute, get to know a co-worker on a more personal level, and offer to play a few games with your children when you get home. Don’t hesitate to be spontaneous; an impromptu couples massage or girls night out will breathe new life into your week.
Do you have a handful of goals and dreams for your life that are collecting dust in the corner because you just don’t have time to think about them? You are in desperate need of inspiration. Read a book by a new author or go see a play at your local theater. Seeing others pursue their dreams and exposing yourself to new situations will inspire you to work harder in your own life, even if that means more late nights and early mornings.
Acts of kindness will bring more satisfaction to your life than you could ever imagine. Rake your neighbours’ leaves when they’re not home or pay for the coffee of the person behind you at the café. They don’t have to be grand gestures – any kind act will make you smile and remind you what life is really about.
Even after establishing balance in your life using the tips above, it can be easy to fall back into your old habits.
