How Do I Get A Good Life Balance?

Last Update: October 19, 2020

First of all you have to define your interpretation of how do I get a good life balance. What are you trying to balance your life with? Work, WA, Leisure. It could be one but it should be two or three depending on whether you have another job or not.

I am trying to balance my WA work life with my leisure. You may also have to include your working hours for an employer as well. In the past I have put too much emphasis on the WA work and not enough on the leisure side of my life. This was probably down to poor planning on my part and just generally overworking.

There are many who hold down a full time job, work WA and still have leisure time as well.

One thing we all need to do is learn to work smart instead of working hard. I used to work my leisure time around my WA work rather than starting with my leisure time and doing WA work when I had time available.

We all want to make money but we don't want to be burned out at the end of each day. We need to keep ourselves fresh so we can tackle the odd hiccup in our lives but still keep that work life balance.

So what is most important to you? Is it earning a great deal of money and having no leisure time or would you prefer to earn less but have adequate leisure time?

Take a good long look at what you really want and then plan your life to meet with your requirements. Do a daily and weekly plan of what you need to do, and then stick to that plan.

How do I get a good life balance? Well! I have to work at it!

Yes, I have to work for it. Right now I am on unemployment due to the coronavirus. It pays nothing. At this moment I am not sure if I have enough money to make my car payment and the insurance. Need a haircut, but .......

That is why I have to focus solely on WA. I need to get up and running soon. I hate to see the mail when it comes. I want to look for work but then I may be exposed to the virus and don't want that.

Now that I know my niche I need to get moving, the whe I feel like it is healthy relax, a little, lol.

Thank you for sharing this post, I can very much relate to this and wonder lot how to be more productive. I work hard, and not smart lol.

I have slowed down a lot since I have started as my balance was most definitely in need of improvement.

I still keep trying to improve my balance and appreciate your post what inspires me to improve even more.

Have a great day.

With all the restrictions on going out here, I have really doubled down on working and when its safe and we're able to travel then I will take a lot of time off.

A blessing for working from home is I can still interact with everyone throughout the day and take a few moments here and there if need be.

I think it comes down to what is your WHY, what are your goals, and what is your plan. Schedule leisure and put it on a par with work so youcan re-create yourself to get everuthing done accordingly.
