Do you often feel frustrated by all of the demands placed on you? If you feel like you never have the time to do some of the things you want to do because you’re always doing stuff for other people, you will eventually burn out and may even become a little resentful.
Making time for you is both necessary and important. In Cheryl Richardson’s book, “Take Time for Your Life“, she talks about creating a “Whole” Life for yourself as opposed to an “Out of Balance” Life. Imagine a pie chart diagram with a circle for you in the middle, and sections of the “pie” divided into the following categories:
• Emotional and physical health
• Fun and adventure
• Contributions to others
• Spiritual well being.
How close are you to living a more balanced life?
Create your own pie chart and see which area gets the largest “slice”. What can you do to minimize that “slice” and increase the size of another? Look at your schedule for the next couple of weeks and see what changes you can make that will move you closer to the life you really want.
