You can add balance in your life by creating opposites: Spend time alone and also with people; volunteer your time and get paid for your work; do something physical such as exercise and then enjoy some quiet time doing nothing; talk and then listen.
Take action! Let other trusted friends and family know what you are trying to change in relation to creating a more balanced lifestyle. Ask others for their comments about how they create more balance in their life.
This topic is one where there are many resources either on-line or the library. Some people hire a personal coach to help support them as they make changes in their lives.
Take a few minutes to assess
the balance you have now with
your personal and professional lives.
