Surely, you’ve heard of this fun and fast paced game. You may have even played the popular arcade game at some point in your life. Heck, you may even be playing it now, only it’s your very own Reality Show!

Fast and furious is a good description of what most of our lives look like on a daily basis. Our jobs require a great deal of time, focus and energy and when you throw in business travel, long hours and job stress, there is little time or energy left for all of those responsibilities waiting for us at home.

So, what does the ideal Life balance look like in your world?   If you’re like most of us, you probably spend a great deal of time swinging the mallet at all of those little “moles” that continually pop up during the day.  Just when you think you’ve taken care of one, another one pops up and then another and another.  At some point they come to you in groups and they get faster and faster.  Ultimately, you find yourself exhausted and overly stressed as you continue to play the daily game of whack-a-mole.

Whether this is the case for you or you just simply need a little help from time to time, it is always to your advantage to strive for and invest in a healthy balance between working hours and your personal life.

Improving Life BalanceThree Questions to ask yourself to help jump start you on the path to a more balanced lifestyle.

What’s important to you?  You only have one life, so define this and write it down. Begin using it as a guide as to how you work and play. The value of having balance in your life is the ability to slow down and savor life’s moments.

Where is your space? Make some – either in your head or in your surroundings.  Find somewhere to step away from the chaos and declutter your thoughts.  Even if it’s 5-minute intervals throughout the day, it will help you to clear your head so you can re-energize and focus on your priorities.

Who will support you? Creating a support system is critical in achieving optimal balance in your life.  Choose a coach, partner or friend to help encourage you and stay on track when things get tough.  Outsource routine responsibilities that bog you down and distract you.  When you invest in bringing balance into your life, you get to choose where you spend your energy, time and focus!

If you would like to be able to drop your mallet and stop playing the daily game of whack-a-mole, I’d love to talk with you. I invite you to give me a call for a quick phone conversation if you have questions or if you would like to know more about how we can help you live your best life – one moment at a time.
