Do you struggle to get everything done in the time you have? Do you find you do more of the things you dislike than the things you enjoy? Do you have little time for quality family fun and me time is something you only dream of? Does work and commitments outside of family life take up the majority of your time?
Achieving a harmonious life balance can be challenging but it is not impossible. Once you have created a better balance, you will feel in control of your life and its direction, have more energy to do the things you want to do and find you actually enjoy the various aspects of your life that you may have started to resent.
Everyone’s idea of an appropriate life balance is different as it is based on personal choice. If your life seems frantic and you are constantly on the go, now is the time to reassess how you spend your time so you can create a balance that works for you and your family.
How do you spend your time?
Assess how much time you give to various aspects of your life including work, your children, household chores, socialising and self-care. It will come as little surprise that most of your time is taken up attending to the needs of others with little left over for self-care or essential ‘me time’.
Identify your time wasters
We are all guilty of wasting time in one way or another. However, when life is busy, time becomes a commodity you cannot afford to waste. If you find yourself the last parent to leave the school gate in the morning because you spend time catching up with your friends, you could be wasting time. Even though you’re seeing a friend, when you leave you will probably feel rushed and stressed by the loss of time and resultant impact on what you need to get done and the time now left available. Instead arrange a coffee morning with your friends and have these conversations in a more relaxed and comfortable setting. This will also give you the opportunity to make stronger friendships with people within your local community.
Know what you want
It is okay to want something different in life and change is possible. If you want to spend more time enjoying family fun, taking care of your own needs and catching up with friends, make these activities a priority. Ensure you do these things every week and juggle all your other responsibilities around them, rather than the other way round. So often I meet mums who put greater importance on the vacuuming and polishing than their own health and wellbeing!
Learn how to use your time
Finding your ideal balance is directly related to how you allocate and use your time, and also how you prioritise the tasks you feel need to be done. Ensure you get the most out of your time by maximising what you do with it. If you need some support to find a happier life balance and make better use of your time, please read my interactive e-Book, How To Find More Time.
As you work through the exercises, you will learn all about your time – what it is worth, how you spend it, and how you can maximise it. You will not only improve your ability to organise your routine effectively but you will be able to schedule, experience and value quality ‘me time’ on a daily basis to help you live the life you truly want and deserve.
If you would like to know how it would feel to have more time to do the things you really want to do - things that give you joy and energy - then this e-Book provides exercises, principles, techniques and tips to help you get the most out of your time, enabling you to live a life with purpose, direction, balance and happiness.
