Day 12 ~ What is a balanced life?

What does work-life balance really mean?

According to work-life balance is a concept including proper prioritizing between “work” (career and ambition) and “lifestyle” (health, pleasure, leisure, family and spiritual development/meditation).

I recently asked friends, family and followers:

What is a balanced life?

Here are the responses:

  1. What is that? I wouldn’t know what to tell you. I’ve always been running around like a chicken. Maybe it is when the husband helps you cook, wash dishes and take care of the kids with out moaning. When you find a job that doesn’t make you crazy and you go home with a smile on your face looking forward to the next day. Your guest is as good as mine.
  2. I feel like a balanced life is when you can accomplish your professional and personal goals all while remaining in the moment with your everyday life.
  3. To me.. in 2018, it means working a lot less, and doing nothing more, making time to see my friends more, have more fun, and switch off a lot more!! working 16 hour sometimes longer days in front of a screen, is not going to happen again ever; nothing is worth that!
  4. When you have enough time for your family and friends and don’t let your work consume you, and try to take care of yourself by exercising, and eating healthy.  Don’t let your problems take over you.
  5. That is a hard question, I really don’t know.
