Developing a healthy work-life balance


  Developing a healthy work-life balance

So you want to live a life with few distractions? With no major unplanned mistakes and more time to focus on what matters most? Sounds like it may be time to change your attitude about work.

The truth is, your work-life balance isn't going to get any better if you never take control of it. Your boss will likely keep his or her crazy schedule, demanding anything from an hour of overtime here and there, to constant interruptions during your downtime. And even though we all have the power to create our own schedule for work — it's just not easy! It takes a serious commitment from you in order for this kind of balance to happen.

It's common knowledge that taking control of your life is the first step to living a healthier lifestyle. In this way, you set up boundaries for yourself that will help you create a work-life balance. For starters, try creating clear cut hours for your job. Decide on when you're going to start and end your workday, and then stick to it! Your body functions best when it follows a routine — so get into one that will keep you as close to balanced as possible!

Another important boundary is setting check-in times with friends and family members. If not done correctly, this can lead to feelings of resentment from others who are involved in your life. If you consistently give others the opportunity to talk about their day, or share their problems with you without allowing for reciprocation, you'll soon find yourself in a one-sided friendship.

Instead, fill up your down time with hobbies and activities that increase your level of creativity. Become involved in different organizations that interest you — like exercise classes or a volunteer organization. It doesn't really matter what it is as long as it gets your body moving and your mind thinking about things other than work!

If work is all you focus on, then the whole balance thing just isn't going to happen –not meaning that it won't happen at all–but just not at the level that you're hoping for in order to thrive.

"Think of work-life balance as one big challenge, and one you can tackle one day at a time." –Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO, and bestselling author of "Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, & Finding Joy"

Our hearts may be beating out of our chests with the stress we're feeling each day. But within all this stress are the forces that can unlock your mind and body to create more balance in your life. You just need to be willing to take up the challenge and put in the work required. Work-life balance is about changing your mind's eye from a limited "work world" to a limitless "life world. It's about cutting out the distractions and focusing on what really matters to you. And it's about putting in the time to connect with friends, family, and community.

If you know someone who is looking to improve their lifestyle, please forward this onto them. It may just help them change their life for the better!

Making any decision in life needs careful thought and considerable caution. This is particularly true when making decisions about education and careers. Education is not a "cram and dump" exercise. You can't do it. You don't "test" it. It's not a contest of who is the "smarter" or "more capable" person. It takes years of hard and dedicated work to become successful or even competent at anything. Before you can begin to dream about achieving success in your education, you need to get an education...and a lot more! We want to help those who want to get started on their education journey, but are struggling with where and how they can begin. But above all, we want share knowledge from our own experience as educators and life-long learners at Make a Living...and More!®. Over the last eight years, we've been sharing our experiences in the world of education and careers at Make a Living...and More!®. We've been featured in thousands of articles on this site, as well as in blogs and videos on our own social media accounts. For those who don't know us yet, we are Drs Richard and Anita Carter, founders of Lead Pages and co-authors of The Simple Path to Wealth: How You Can Learn Any Language, Master Any Language and Become a Millionaire with Bad English (The Frugal Scholar Edition) (Kindle Edition).

And last, but definitely not least, 7) How you can have balance between work-life and personal life activities by focusing on what matters most in life.
