Achieving Life Balance



Most of us have things in our lives we want to do, as well as those things we have to do. Perhaps you want to go to the gym more often, or you want to read more books this year. Like most of us, do you find yourself wishing you had more time to pursue the things you want to do as well as the things you need to do?

Whilst time management is important to achieving these goals, some other steps must precede it. As you define these steps, preferably using a journal to keep track of what you discover about yourself, they will help you achieve that work and life balance that will enable you to do those things you want to do and achieve at this point in your life.

1.      List Your Goals

All of us have goals that change regularly and that reflect other things going on in our life at the time. List your goals and prioritize them from important to least important. Include not only the goals you have to achieve, but  also the personal goals you want to achieve.

2.     List Your Daily Schedule

Although we want more time in the day, all of us have 24 hours. We use some of these hours for sleep and some of these for work and recreation purposes. List down your daily schedule and include the things you must do because they are a commitment. This may include work commitments or school sport commitments with the children.

3.     Prioritize Your Personal Goals with Equal Priority as Work Related Goals

Don’t minimize the time available to do the things you want to do, particularly if they are contributing to your life goals or wellbeing. Include family time and other essential life activities that require your time and attention.

Keep to the Schedule unless in an Emergency

Most people who create a daily schedule, keep to it for a while, but not long enough for it to become a habit. Habits take around 3 weeks to form, so if you want your new approach to work and lifestyle to be maintained, you must protect it at all costs. If you want to achieve your own personal goals, you must protect them at all costs. Eventually, the changes you implement will become second nature, but until then, you need to stay in control of your time management.

The Effects of Meditation on Your Health

The health of a human being is very crucial, and billions of dollars are spent every year to ensure that the people are healthy. Healthy people are more productive, and a healthy nation is automatically a wealthy one. However, all this money does not need to be spent on health when there are so many other means that do not need even a dime to be effective. Meditation is one of those. However, I must say that people are becoming more and more aware of meditation, and it is becoming more acceptable across the world.
Meditation causes various changes in the different parts of the brain, and these changes bring positive effects on the body tissues and organs. The sphere in the brain that enables one to reason and analyze issues usually pauses and rests when it is time for meditation. This, in turn, makes less adrenaline to be released into the blood, and all the organs become relaxed and they naturally heal from the effects of too much adrenaline. Also, the right signals are sent to the or…
