In Part 1 of this series, I suggested that:
1. Life Balance is a momentary (or longer) experience of being okay with the five important areas that make up our lives.
2. Those five life areas are your physical health, your healthy thinking, your emotional well-being, your social life, and your spiritual life.
3. Life Balance is not perfection, it’s “playing the hand that you’re dealt” and living your best life.
In this, Part 2, I’m suggesting that you identify those areas of your life that contribute to your Life Balance and imbalance. Keep in mind that any life event, from winning the lottery to losing a loved one, can change our Life Balance. “Life” happens to our lives every day.
Take some time to identify how you currently spend your time, how you would like to spend your time, and begin to create a plan to close the gap between your two life experiences.
a. Does your idea of a balanced life match your real life? What’s the one imbalance that stands out the most? What are you willing to do to improve in this area?
b. Which area of your life receives too much attention? Too much of your time?
c. Which area of your life receives too little attention? Too little of your time?
d. Develop your plan. What can you do to spend the right amount of time in those areas?
e. Who, if anyone, must be included in your Life Balance plan to help assure success?
f. What will you change right away (today) to have more time for what’s important to you?
g. What changes will take some time to put into place?
h. What situations cannot be changed and must be accepted? (“Play the hand you’re dealt”)
Part 3 of this series is planned for tomorrow.
