Here are some tips to finding more balance in your life:
Turn it off – Disconnect on the weekend and/or evenings. Put the phone down, turn off the computer and give your brain a rest. Schedule personal time off.
Accept & Understand that you are not a superhero – Cut down on unnecessary tasks and protect your priorities. Say no to everything that is not essential or doesn’t add something valuable to your life.
Pay attention to your health – Your health affects the quality of your life. You are far more productive and healthy when you get enough sleep, eat healthier and fit in some sweaty activity.
Minimize toxins – Not just the chemicals but the negative influences around you. Get rid of that toxic relationship. Surround yourself with supportive, positive people.
Spend time alone – It is critical for reducing stress and encouraging creativity. Sit quietly for a few minutes a day and do nothing.
Relationships do matter – Set aside quality time with your family and friends. Spend time being present with the people around you.
Treat yourself – Get a pedicure or massage. Have a nice glass of wine or tea. Buy yourself flowers.
Connect with nature – Take a walk and pay attention to what is going on around you. Plant a garden, play with an animal.
Expand your awareness – Take a class, learn something new
Remember fun – Laugh, joke, play
