Proven Way to a Balanced Life

Steve Wickham
 


Visitors: 273

This subject is something that vexes seemingly everyone - balance in life. The following information is scientifically-proven. It was discovered through studies of administrators and their quest for work/life balance. The subjects of the study were already stressed and sought to “bring balance back into their life. "[1]

There is no simple answer in reality. Balance is something that doesn't come without its share of sacrifice - its own sacrifices. It means not hankering after material possessions, releasing the pressure to work obscene hours for the latest mod cons. It means being able to be still - to be emotionally peaceful ironically requires emotional peace; the ability to be quiet and unstimulated for longer than a few minutes.

These are the steps specified in the study referenced below. You might read this and think, ‘there's nothing new in that, ’ or ‘it makes so much sense. ’ Whatever. Keeping your life simple and committing to these steps is ‘worth its weight in gold. '

"The first step is to create a picture of how things could be, because real change always comes from the inside.

"The second step is adjusting [your] attitude. Controlling [your] attitude is as important as controlling [your] actions.

"The third step is organizing [your] time, efforts, and priorities. These steps are not simplistic and may not be easy, but they are worth their weight in gold. [You] can use these steps to create individualized strategies that will support [your] vision. "
