Achieving Life Balance

Work Life Balance

With every single day passing by, I’m realizing the importance of having a good life balance as an essential component of a healthy existence on this planet.

By life balance, I mean a balance between all the things that try to fill our day including the following items:

  • Family
  • Friends
  • Career
  • Volunteer/Service
  • Academia/Personal Development
  • Health & Sports

Now I can’t say I’ve found the perfect balance yet, but I definitely am way better off than a year or two ago, and I believe slow progress is way better than a stand-still.

My humble advice to you my dear reader is to actually identify your priorities from the above list (or maybe even add/remove some). Accordingly, based on your priorities, compare how you actually spend your time and energy with the priorities you set. If your priorities and reality seem to be well aligned, then I congratulate you for having your life balance. If not, then by now you know what you need to invest more of your time and energy on. It’s that simple! 🙂

As a closing note, I wish you the best of luck in finding your life balance but keep in mind it’s a road you stay on, not a destination you’d reach.

Happy Balancing!
