Work life Balance



Balance is a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.


As a business owner and as humans, it is important to provide yourself with the essentials to be the best you that you can be. After all, you are the face of your business. You must sell yourself. You also must live with yourself.


Here are some balancing tips that may help.


Five foundations that should be in alignment for better wellbeing are physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social. Today most of us focus on these core activities, finances, careers, community, family, and friends.


Neglecting any one of these will hinder progress becoming balanced. All the elements above work in conjunction with one another. If you put all the weight on the right side of the boat, there is a good chance it will capsize. This is an oversimplification as we are very complex beings. We still require balance.


Consistency also helps to add balance. It is easier to plan when our behaviors are predictable. Having a plan helps you stick to a routine. This will allow you to incorporate various elements and activities for true harmony.


You can also do some contingency planning. Often surprises will throw us off balance. While we may not plan for every scenario, I do know that proper planning prevents problems.


Keep balance for better business!
