It's easy to get overwhelmed and fatigued from time to time.
After all, the stresses of daily life can quickly spiral out
of control and, suddenly, you feel like you've got demands
tugging at you from every which way!

Want some balance in your life?

Luckily, you don't have to give your life a complete
overhaul to do it! Balancing your life doesn't mean quitting
your job and moving to a deserted tropical island. All you
really have to do is get YOURSELF balanced. Once you do, all
of the external stuff will fall into place.

Sounds easy - but how do you actually DO that?

1. Give yourself some "me time".

What's the first thing you sacrifice when things get tough?
Your personal quiet time! You don't feel right cutting out
"real" responsibilities, so you figure you can make do by
skipping out on "me time".

That's a big mistake though.

The less time you spend relaxing, the worse you're going to
feel. Your energy supply won't be able to keep up and even
the simplest of responsibilities is going to feel like a
giant boulder on your shoulders.

Even if you only take a few minutes to do some quick
meditation, read one chapter of your favorite book, or
simply sit down outside and enjoying nature, you'll feel
much better. Suddenly, the stress won't seem so bad and
you'll actually feel peaceful!

2. Take care of yourself.

The best "me time" in the world won't make up for bad
habits. If you want to balance your life, you've got to give
your body the tools to do it - like 8 hours of sleep every
night, a diet chock full of healthy foods, and daily
exercise. In addition to giving you extra energy, all of
these will make you better able to speak kindly to yourself,
instead of drowning in a sea of negative thoughts. After
all, when YOU can't cut yourself some slack, you're going to
feel like the rest of the world can't either!

3. Stop thinking about the "shoulda", "coulda", "woulda".

Everyone has a mental picture of how their lives "should
be". Then, when some obstacle gets in the way, you can't
deal with it!

Instead of heaping all of that stress on yourself, be
flexible. Just because things "shoulda", "coulda", or
"woulda" been different doesn't mean they necessarily would
have been better. Plus, when you're constantly trying to
live up to unrealistic expectations, you'll never appreciate
what you've got.

If you can learn to go with the flow, you'll be able to
tackle problems and crises much more successfully. Instead
of measuring them up to how things "should be", you'll focus
your energy on solving problems - without drama and
frustration.

4. Be on the lookout for simple outer changes.

Yes, balancing your life starts from within, but there may
be a few things you can do to change your external situation
too. 

For example, if you get stressed out because you have your
son's Little League team over after every win, stop - or,
only have the team over sometimes. If it has become too much
of a drain on your time and energy, why not ask the other
parents to take over the hosting duties every now and then?
That way, you can help with the party, instead of taking
full command over the party.

Bottom line - there are probably plenty of activities that
no longer fit into your desired lifestyle. If you get rid of
them, you'll have a much easier time feeling balanced!
