Tips For Living A Balanced Life

They say the older you get; the faster life seems to go. I can’t be sure if it actually speeds up, or we just have so much to do in a day that it seems that way. Regardless, balancing everything in life can be hard. Here are some tips for living a balanced life in a fast paced world!

Tips For living a balanced life

Say No Sometimes

Just because you get asked to be part of the PTA, to lead a class at church, or stretch yourself thinner than you already are doesn’t mean you have to. Balance your life by saying no to things that are going to stretch you more than you can handle. People will appreciate you being honest about your abilities, and if they don’t, you don’t need that negativity in your life.

Make Time for You

In a world full of technology, work, and business, it can be difficult to make time for yourself. Stress can weigh down on your life and affect you both mentally and physically. Take care of your health by making time to do something you enjoy doing such as:

  • Exercising at the gym.
  • Meditating or doing Yoga.
  • Reading a good book.
  • Having coffee with yourself.
  • Taking a relaxing bubble bath.
  • Seeing a favorite TV show.
  • Enjoying time out with friends.

Have a Day of Rest

If you are constantly on the go, you will eventually crash and burn. To avoid a crash, take a day of rest every week or at least every other week. Give yourself a break from the day to day functions of life and just spend time doing nothing. Taking time to do something will make life easier and more balanced.

Make Family Important

Friends will come and go, but family will stick by your side for the rest of your life. Put your family first in every situation. Have family vacations, family reunions, or a family game night. Keep your life balanced by balancing your time between work and activities with the people you care about the most.

    I think the hardest think that I had to learn was saying NO, I’m 56 and didn’t learn it until I turn 50. Late in life, but learned. Great post!

    I used to love hot pockets until they changed the crust. I don’t like the texture or garlic flavoring that they now use.
