5 Ideas to Help Balance Life in 2012

Is there such a thing as a “balanced life”? Balancing work, chores, kids, family, friends, your relationship with your spouse, exercise, church and other events is becoming more and more of a challenge. If you find yourself getting pulled in 20 different directions consider practicing some of these ideas. My wife Heidi and I try to practice these, but still find ourselves in “drag race with no finish line” mode.


It’s Okay to Say “No”



Don't be afraid to say “no” or “I can't” without giving a reason. Friends will understand.



Prioritize and Organize



We have a white board in the kitchen. We post the most important commitments here to track each day. It's good for doodling funny faces too.



Have a Sense of Humor



We try not to take ourselves to seriously. In other words, accepting the fact that we have busy life and laughing about it helps!



See the Big Picture from a Helicopter



Before we say “yes” to a commitment that falls outside of our normal schedule we look at the big picture – the “helicopter view”. Can we fit this in?



Share Responsibilities



We split things up – and it doesn't matter who does what. If Heidi wants to mow the lawn – great! I'll do laundry, make the bed, do dishes and shop (it does happen from time to time).
