I’m going to be honest about something people don’t talk a lot about when it comes to a “balanced life” and reaching for your goals.
It’s almost impossible to have both at the same time.
When you’re in the process of making changes in your life, no matter what they are, it’s absolutely NORMAL for your life to get a little out of balance. At least for a short while.
I’m talking about times when…
● You’re starting a new job or business.
● Working on a health, wellness, or fitness goal.
● Saving to pay off student debt.
● You have a family goal (having a baby, having a new baby in the house, or you’re suddenly in charge of your children’s schoolwork).
You only have so many hours in a day, with a limited amount of energy!
When you’re faced with a real-life “out of balance” goal or situation, there are a couple of things you can do about it.
First, accept it.
“To everything, there is a season…”
That’s been solid wisdom for thousands of years–because it’s TRUE!
If you're trying to do it “all”…it’ll almost always leads to disappointment, burnout, and unneeded stress.
Ain't nobody got time for that!
Second, try to give the other areas of your life SOME attention.
I’m talking about things related to:
● Your family and your friends
● Your health and wellness
● Your self-development and learning
● Your spirit
If you're ignore those areas of your life, before long you might find yourself feeling unhappy, unfulfilled, and feel like something is missing from your life (because it is!).
You might not be able to devote time to every area of your life every day, but carving out time once a week can make a real difference.
You can also upgrade how you spend your time!
For instance, let’s say you’re working on a nutrition goal for the New Year.
If you normally order takeout or go out to eat with the family on the weekends--and end up indulging in meals that don’t align with your goals--what if instead you created a new “family dinner” at-home routine?
Everyone could help prepare dinner together. I also makes a great date night in for you and bae and if you have kids in the house who are old enough, maybe THEY can be (mostly) in charge.
Your family will remember these times for years to come…AND you’ll all be eating healthier foods TOGETHER.
That’s a win-win!
I hope this helps with checking off some of your 2021 goals, so you can set yourself up for success!
