I Balance My Life To Allow Me To Rest

I have a hectic schedule and I need to balance my life so that I have my valuable rest time.  I value my rest time because it enables me to recharge my body and rejuvenate my soul. Making time for relaxation is equally important as the other to-dos on my agenda.

The way to achieving quality rest time is through a balanced schedule. I have the necessary clarity of mind to discern which responsibilities I should take on and which ones need to wait.

I am mature enough to differentiate between that which I am called to do and that which I simply desire to do. I understand that just because I can do something does not mean I should do it.

To maintain a balanced life, I must sometimes put aside some minor responsibilities and fun activities. The benefits of living a balanced life are worth the sacrifices of letting go of some things I love to do. On my plate, I place only those things I need to carry through this season of my life.

Procrastinators’ guide to punctuality

Most of us procrastinates and some are chronic procrastinators.  Due to the hectic schedule of our lives, we do some times procrastinate things that we want to do.  By some estimates, 20 percent of people consider themselves to be chronic procrastinators and many more put things off on occasion. If procrastination is getting in between you and your life goals, try these suggestions for getting things done with less delay.

Understanding Why You Procrastinate

1.      Spot perfectionism.

Procrastination and perfectionism often go hand in hand. You may be setting your standards so high that they intimidate you from doing your best. Determine if you’re avoiding important tasks because you’re anxious about how well you’ll perform.

2.      Make up your mind.

You might procrastinate because you find it challenging to make decisions. You keep developing more options and telling yourself that you’re doing background research rather than buckling down to more concrete work.

3.     Analyze your feelings about the last minute rush.

Maybe you’ve become conditioned to the euphoria you feel when working under pressure. You may need to find more productive ways to motivate and reward yourself.

Hobbies for Life Improvement
