Balance in the rat race

In order to stay sane and happpy, I have to balance the many physical and emotional duties and obligations I have in my life. Here is my list:

  1. I am a mother to 2 wonderful but active children.
  2. I am a wife to a wonderfully helpful but at times frustrating husband.
  3. I work full-time in a stress-filled job.
  4. I have a part-time home-based business.
  5. I volunteer in a church group between 3-4 hours a week.
  6. I play basketball in a women’s league in my city once a week from Sept-May.

So in order to keep all of these in check and happy, I have to have order, structure and a good calendar. This looks after the physical demands. In order to keep the emotional demands in check, I am trying to eat healthy and exercise and try to take time out for myself thru the things I like (ie. gardening, reading, sports, crafts). If I’m not functioning properly, life falls apart. The one thing I need to do that I know will help is to get more sleep. Life without balance is no life at all.
