How do you draw the sand in the line to create the balance you need for your active lifestyle? Now with mother’s day around the corner, I know how busy some of you are. I am not a mother. I am a young professional, designer,entrepreneur, blogger and lover of life. Every minute of everyday seems to be spoken for most times and I often get asked how I balance my life and hectic schedule. Well, in short I understand that we make time for what we want to make time for. That’s a fact. Now that you’ve decided you want to make time for,well, whatever you’re choosing to make time for, you have to commit to it and make it part of your life. Here are some basic tips that help me:
Have a plan for your day. If you know what you need to do when you wake up for the entire day, you’re more likely to stick to it. Devise a schedule if need be, and do each task at the time you have allotted for it. If time is up and and the task isn’t done, you either have to push something else back, or complete it the next chance you get. This is a great way at becoming efficient, since the busier you get, the less time you’ll have to come back to revisit a task that you’ve already worked on.
Keep your word. If you tell yourself you’re going to do something. Just do it. Try to avoid making excuses with the most important person you know. You!
Factor in me time. You won’t want to do anything for any period of time if you feel burned out. Schedule weekly appointments to do whatever your heart desires. Rest and rewards are equally important to keep yourself motivated and eager to continue the master plan you’ve devised.
Repeat. Repetition becomes habit. Habit becomes a lifestyle. Before you know it, you’ll be a pro at doing everything you need to do and making it look effortless.
Get a role model. Find someone, even more busy than you, and let them inspire you to keep going. On the tough days, just think of them and all they do, and your plate will seem so much lighter.
Good luck with making your busy lifestyle seem like child’s play; I know you can do it!
