Balance In Life

7 Simple Steps to Better Balancing Life

A man on horseback passes by. Looks like you're going to an important place. A woman yells at the side of the road, "Where are you going?" The man replied, "I do not ask the horse." For many of us, this is the story of our lives as we strive to meet all the competitive needs of the family, home, friendship, health, and work. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps we can take to help us feel more balanced.

Step 1: Stop Being So Outstanding

It’s easy to feel like you’re doing damage to everything; you are not a good partner, parent, friend, or employee. If you stop judging yourself and look good, you do a better job than you think and with a few small changes, you can do even better.

Step 2: Keep Your Own Oxygen Mask First

A reason why flight attendants tell you to put on your own oxygen mask before helping others. If you do not take care of yourself, it is a challenge to find the strength to care for those you love and to do your best at work.

We all know that some things are not right (smoking, drinking, poor diet, lack of exercise, not getting enough sleep), but when we become overwhelmed the gap between what we know and what we do widens. Examine your body and see what you are trying to tell yourself about your diet, and how to get enough sleep and sleep. A good night's sleep will reward you the next day.

When you feel tired and frustrated you smell the fastest and easiest foods you can find (often packed with simple carbohydrates and sugars). You will have more energy if you eat more fruits, grains, and vegetables (and your colony will thank you).

Exercise is one of the best things you can do to help yourself. It pumps good chemicals and hormones into your body, helping you to think clearly and to capture the effects of stress and aging. For example in Western Australia, researchers found that walking 30 minutes a day kept memory loss far away from those who are 50+ years old.

Step 3: Work Tactfully

Finding the right balance between work and everyday life is a challenge for workers around the world. It is very important for the welfare of the people that France has passed a law that allows people to ignore work emails when they are not in the office and the European Union has passed an order compelling 48 hours of working hours plus overtime.

It is not good to work long hours, skip meals, feel stressed and have access to work calls and emails 24 hours a day. It makes you angry and stressed with your loved ones and it damages your well-being.

There are other things you can do to 'work smarter and bring more control over your working hours. Most importantly, be aware of your work ethic. Do you stay up late to make time because you messed up during the day? Have you designed your workplace to be clean, neat, comfortable, organized, and free of distractions? Do you check all day to see if you are focused on your top priority or on the follow-up side? Do you do one thing at a time, instead of doing many tasks? Do you do your most difficult tasks during peak hours or do you just leave them at the end of the day?

You do not have to change all your bad work habits at once. Choose one, start small and continue.

Step 4: Be Interested Without Work

You feel better when you have a passion that you love. It gives you energy, gives you something to look forward to at the end of the day, and makes you a more interesting person. If your focus is only on work, where do you fit in? Do you complete it or do you become your daily version?

Step 5: Limits

It helps if you have healthy boundaries between your activities. Four ways you can manage your boundaries.

The first way is that one part of your life always comes first. Full stop. End of story. This is a person who makes work calls during family meals but who does not pick them up in person during work hours. This is also a person who allows work to be disrupted due to family obligations, but family time is not interrupted by work.

The second method is a combination and integration process where there is a deliberate cross-border. You could ask a coworker to do a BBQ for the family, go with your kids and have fun, switch between work and personal activities throughout the day, have an hour-long lunch to go to the gym, and take a job home or spend two hours on a dedicated weekend. family or 'mine'.

The third method maintains different boundaries between different areas. Work is done during business hours only. To make this work, you must commit to setting and applying your own boundaries. It will not work if you spend time with family answering work emails as they arrive.

Step 6: Use the 'Reset' Button

When researchers asked the families of CEOs what it takes to have a better life, their answers were astounding. Their families did not want more time with the CEOs, but they wanted the time they spent with them to be a happy time. Families did not like it when their loved ones brought work stress home.

This is where the 'reset button' comes in. It has two steps and pushes it in the space between your tasks (e.g., at work and at home). First, review your day by asking yourself what went well, what you could have done better, and what you have learned. The second thing you do is 'reset' and choose who you will be when you walk in the door. Will you be a happy and happy person to see loved ones or someone who will bring work pressure home and throw it away? The reset button helps to stop overflowing from one area of ​​your life to the next.

Step 7: Get More Happiness Each Time

Most of us spend a lot of time at work, so it makes sense to make those moments very enjoyable. The simple things you can do to bring more joy to your work. Help your colleagues to see the humorous side of the situation rather than the negative aspects of the drama. Say 'hello' and smile at people (even those you like to pretend to be absent). Treat others the way you would like to be treated; that is, perform small acts of kindness. This can be as simple as dropping a person's print on his desk or making a cup of coffee with a colleague you know who has a hard day.

Start with small changes that you can easily make and continue until your pay life is equal.
