Finding Balance

Finding balance in our lives can be quite daunting. How do we juggle kids, home, work, relationships and still find time to be creative?

It's hard to sit down at the computer after ushering all the kids to bed when we'd rather sit down in front of the tube and drink tea.

How do we find balance in an unbalanced world? Everything takes time and effort. Here are a few suggestions.

1) Eat a proper diet. This has been drilled into us for ages now. We know that this is effective, but actually doing it is another thing. It does work, and it does require effort.

2) Adequate Rest. Another simple task. I certainly don't pay attention to this tip. I know I should, but there's so much to do.

3) Exercise. Maybe if there were 2 extra hours in the day, I might be able to squeeze it in there.

What it comes down to is deciding how important it is to you. And sometimes it means setting aside less important tasks for the really important ones. The dishes can wait, the laundry can wait, etc. It's definitely a process and definitely worth it.
