Balance in Work and Life - creating your toolbox for life.

Balance in Work and Life - creating your toolbox for life.

We have all heard of the anomaly called work-life balance.  What is it? And is attainable?

I would like to introduce you to a new tool for your tool box to aid in your quest for a more meaningful, balanced life.  I have been studying, teaching and living work and life balance for 25 years.  The studying and teaching part has been easy.  It is the living part that proves more difficult. 

I practice what I preach intentionally utilizing all the tools that I will describe.  My journey began 10 years after I started studying the need for balance in work and life.  I was a working mom with 3 young children and a husband in suburbia.  We shared household chores but the children were my responsibility whereas the finances were his.  Many couples find living in this manner adequate.  For me, life changed the day my husband left.  Now, as I have come to learn, everyone has his or her own “story” that makes achieving balance so challenging.  I made many attempts to “do it all” failing miserably on a daily basis. 

I have developed a list of questions to self-assess the balance in your life.

  • Are you tired all the time?
  • Do you over react to the smallest of things?
  • How often have you said –“I wish I hadn’t said that” ?
  • Have you missed important life cycle events?
  • What do people say about you? To your face?  And especially behind your back?
  • Do you like your life?
  • Do you wake up happy most of the time?
  • Are you loved? Do you love?

Failing this test miserably motivated me to put into action all that I had been teaching about how to pursue a balanced life.  Stay tuned as I roll out my toolbag for achieving balance in work and life

Howdy, I do believe your website could possibly be having browser compatibility
issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however,
if opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!

Besides that, great blog!
