Finding Your Balance: for Nine to Fivers

How do you have a balanced lifestyle when you’re working from 9 to 5? (or 8 to 6, or more!).

It is hard. Although some of us may work 8-10 hours of a 24 hour day, when we fit sleep into it (hopefully 7-8 hours if we can!), and getting to and from work, we can be left with only a few hours to actually achieve this ‘balance’.

And – balance is different for everyone. Balance to one person may mean 30 minutes of exercise in the morning, to another it can mean finding 15 minutes of ‘me’ time per day, for another it’s making the time to spend time with the people they love.

So, the challenge for the 9 to 5’ers is:

1. To FIND your balance – what simple activities will help you feel more balanced?

2. To create the SPACE for you to achieve this daily balance – when can you do this? Where will you be? How long will you need?

3. To IMPLEMENT the balance – Try it out! It may take weeks, months, or even years to get it right, but you don’t know even you start trying!

Do these 3 steps consistently, and you will love yourself for it! And on the otherside, you will feel centered, find calmness, and you will not only live to fight another day – you will LOOK FORWARD to living another day!
