Finding balance can be one of the most difficult things we face. There always seems to be too much to do - and something gets left undone as a result. We never seem to have enough time to do many of the things that we really enjoy. We feel drained because we don't have enough rest - or enough recreation.
The real truth of the matter is this: Balance isn't either/or - it's AND.
The way we find balance is to create it by changing our mindset - and making room for the fun things and the important things in our lives - and in our work. Our biggest restriction is the 24-hour day; however, with the right mindset that can be handled.
For starters, change your mindset so that you aren't choosing one thing over another - but changing something else so that you can have both if it is possible - and if it is important enough. Finding balance is about finding ways to do the things we really love to do - and want to do - while doing the things we have to do.
