WORK LIFE BALANCE 2

3.Balance your mind.The key to balance is all your head.Begin to think differently!

4.Create a non- negotiable time blocks in your schedule at least 2x per week.

5.Consider hiring a professional coach.When you are trying to achieve a more balance life and everyone around you is being rewarded for working round the clock,its tough to saty focused.The truth is making change that will affect you personally and professionally can be challenging even when the change will be positive.

6.Create a vision.Having a vision of what you want to accomplish is a powerful tool to help you achieve any goal.Write down your vision of a more balanced and fulfilling life style.

.....IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING IN YOUR LIFE TO MAKE IT MORE BALANCE,WHAT WOULD IT BE?

CREATING A WORK LIFE BALANCE.....

Whats look like balance to one person may differ for another because individuals have different goals,values and definitions of success.However there are some common definitions of balance that include:

Having the sense that there is enough time in the day to effectively accomplish work related tasks,The ability to get through our daily work and family responsibilities without feeling drained.Having the ability to participate in activities we enjoy on a regular basis.At the heart of sucessful work life balance is:

accomplishments:getting the stuff we need to get done
enjoyment:having the time for loved ones,fun,rest,excercise and hobbies

Although the concepts of achieving balane are simple,actually creatinga balanced life isnt easy.but it is definitely worthwhile.

HERE ARE SOME STEPS TO HELP YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY TOWARD LIFE BALANCE:
1.Begin your balance journey by figuring out what values and priorities are.yeah i know...feels like everything is a priority.Yet too often,our time and energy are spent on things that we dont really care about.Once you're clear about your values and priorities you can begin saying 'no' to those things that move you further away from your values and priorities and 'yes' to those things that are in allignment with values.You can begin to structure your life in a way that supports the personal and professional goals you want to accomplish.Determining the goals you want to accomplish and the quality of life you want to live will help guide you toward figuring out what balance lokks life for you....

2.Idebtify your balance blockers.Balance blockers are those things that we either think or do that stands in the way of achieving balance.Its basically a perspective we hols about why we cant pursue balance related goals.Some examples of blockers are:
-living for the expectations of others at work and at home
-consistently putting the needs of others before your own
-fear of change
-hung up on appearances
-perfectionism

once you identify your blockers,pay attention to when you use them as excuses to justify why you cant achieve balance in your life.Explore ways to accomplish your balance goals inspite of your particular balance blockers........

YOUR JOB TO BE.....

It can be a hard thing to stand alone and say this is what i need to do for me. Yet it doesn't really make sense for us to be what other people want us to be..It's their job to be who they are and its your job to be who you are.

It is easier to understand a situation when we see it from a greater perspective.So try to consciously watch both your own and other peoples reactions through a telescope instead of microscope.Dont take it personally or try to hide who you are!

HAVE A GREAT WEEK-END TO ALL ! :-)

ONE DAY AT A TIME...


Dont let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or the future.By living your life one day at a time ,you live all the days of your life.Dont give up when you still have something to give.Nothing is really over untill the moment you stop trying.Dont be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect.It is this fragile thread that binds us to each other.

WALK THROUGH LIFE.....


May we find serenity and tranquility in a world we may not always understand.May the pain we have known and the conflict we have experienced give us the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism.May we see our future as one filled with promise and possibility.Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience.May we find enough inner strength to determine our own worth by ourselves and not be dependent on anothers judgement of our accomplishments.....

( Have a great week-end everyone!)

BEAUTY AND LOVE...


May you not become too concerned with material matters,but instead place immeasurable value on the goodness in your heart.Find time each day to see beauty and love in the world around you.Remember the sunshine when the storm seems un-ending.Teach love to those who know hate,and let that love embrace you as you go into the world.May the teachings of those you admire become part of you,so that you may call upon them.Remember those whose lives you have touched and who have touched yours are always a part of you,even if the encounters were less than you would have wished.It is the content of the encounter that is more important than its form.

PSALM 27 : 1-3


No matter what temptations, trials,or troubles we face,God is our stronghold and He will give us the strength to conquer fear and danger..........Always have the courage and integrity to refuse to be tempted by those who would profit by our mistakes.And always have the wisdom to make right choices and the strength to carry them out.
