The need to go to extremes, and then to course-correct in order to restore balance, seems an integral function of the human psyche.
If your work-life balance is unfairly skewed away from quality time with yourself, your family, your interests and hobbies, and/or your community, then it’s time to stop and refocus on what’s most important to you and find a way back to all that really matters.
The idea is to evaluate what you’re actually doing with and for yourself every day, determine how essential it is to you, and make the necessary changes that best accommodate your needs, interests, and desires.
6 Practicle applications:
- Determine the things you value most in your life.
- Decide what commitments are most important to you.
- Assess the way you use your time.
- Get rid of clutter in every area of your life.
- Spend more time with the people that stretch you, challenge you, and expand your thinking.
- Make time to be alone. Give yourself more time (and the permission) to express your creativity.
