How Well Are You Maintaining Balance In Your Life?


If trying to maintain balance in your life makes you feel like a tightrope walker, you are not alone. Most of us have so many demands on our time and energy, at times life can feel like a three-ring circus. Take this quiz to see how well you are meeting your responsibilities, while also recognizing and fulfilling your personal needs and wants.


True  False

         1. The only way I can successfully manage my life is to take care of myself physically and emotionally.


         2. Nurturing myself enlarges my capacity to help others.


         3. I eat healthfully and exercise regularly.


         4. I get check-ups, go to the dentist, and take preventative precautions.


         5. I set aside personal quiet time for myself, whether I’m reading, taking a walk, meditating or simply letting my thoughts drift.


         6. I experience the gifts of each season: ice skating, sledding, bundled-up beach walks; gardening, hiking, more time outside; camping, swimming, barbeques; harvesting natures bounty, gathering wood, spending more time inside.


         7. Being creative is something I can do to nurture myself. I do what I love, whether that’s cooking, drawing, painting, writing, dancing, singing or another creative pursuit.


         8. I spend quality time with family and friends. I know that reaching out to others  enriches my life.


         9. Contributing to the world provides connection and purpose. I give my time,                         energy and experience where it is most useful.


         10. I notice and pay attention to the emotional signals that tell me I’m out of                               balance: irritability, overwhelm, resentment.


         11. If I feel that I’m catching a cold, I realize I may have stressed my immune                           system with over-activity or neglect, so I slow down and take better care of  myself.


         12. When I need or want to, I say "no" to requests for my time.


         13. I listen to and honor the requests my body makes for such things as resting, stretching, eating green vegetables, staying hydrated and taking supplements.


         14. If I have something planned for myself, I don’t just toss that aside when someone makes a request of me.


         15. I find time for the things that I enjoy doing, even though I may be busy with other things of importance.


         16. I’m generally happy and living with gratitude. I regularly experience well- being, contentment, even joy.


If you answered false more often than true, you may want to take a look at the questions to which you answered false and see if you can incorporate something of its message into your life. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to further explore the balance in your life.
