The Key To Maintaining A Fulfilled And Balanced Lifestyle

Aug 17, 2007
If you are like most people, you most likely never seem to have enough hours in the day to do everything you need or want to get done. You probably spend so much energy and time on your job that your job is taking over your life. Learning to maintain a happy medium or a satisfying balance between your family responsibilities, your work commitments and your leisure time, can be, to say the least, very challenging. But once you're there, you will be paid off with increased energy and overall better health.

The key to maintaining a fulfilled and balanced life is to understand exactly what balance means to you. What someone else might consider recreational might be work to you and vice versa. You can evaluate your lifestyle, taking note of the aspects you want to change and keep track of the time you spend on different tasks, for a two-week period. This will help you identify the areas that you can change, use less time on the small tasks freeing up your time to spend on you.

Chances are, if you were better organized, you would have more time for your personal life and your leisure activities. A simple change you can make might be using your lunch breaks to run your errands. This would free up your weekends as you would have all of your errands done by the end of the week. Try using a calendar or day planner to set your schedule, helping you use your time more wisely. You can also enlist other family members in the household to help with chores, cutting the time spent on chores in half. You can have a rotating schedule so no one feels tied down to one chore. Listen to their ideas and make sure you talk with them to see how they feel.

Don't forget that a lifestyle of all work or all play is not good - neither one will fulfill you!

If you add your leisure time to your schedule, you will be sure to have down time in your busy life. There are many simple ideas you can put into action. All of which will give you some extra time that you need to have a balanced lifestyle. If you have to make many changes, you will want to start with small changes. They will be great starts, to changing your lifestyle and won't make the changes too stressful.
