Top ways to achieve balance in your work & personal life Part III

How do you manage stress? Once you have identified the symptoms that you are experiencing due to the stress in your life, you can then and only then take action to eliminate and/or reduce it. You have to break the hurry pattern and make time for relaxation, reflection and of course enjoyment in your life. When you take steps like this it helps you become more resilient, able to accept change, bounce back from dissatisfying and discouraging obstacles and you will be able to recognize and respond to important opportunities in your life.
The majority of us are trapped by certain attitudes and beliefs that rarely take the time to question. That attitude or beliefs keep us from recognizing and reducing stress and to become more resilient you have to examine the myths that drive us both at home and at work.

Some myths that create and cause stress in your work and personal life:
1. It is urgent and has to be done.
While it's natural to respond to urgency, it's not always necessary. Most of us spend excessive time reacting to events and too little time doing things that are important. If we do not steer our actions by a clear sense of priorities, we will be so absorbed with emergencies and other people's needs that we will constantly feel out of control and overwhelmed.
2. I alone have to get it done.
Mistakenly many of us see it or believe that asking for help is a sign of weakness. We also convince ourselves that we are the only ones who can or will do the tasks that face us. Realistically we aren't the only ones, and we really shouldn't do all the work ourselves. The more real view of our roles can lead to more reasonable expectations of ourselves and to a healthier pattern of setting limits, delegation and seeking and accepting help.
3. I'll find the time later.
It is all too easy to push back important matters like our own needs or time to build or strengthen relationships until later when we have ourselves believing and ultimately stressing about making time later. But think about it...does that time ever come...do we ever get to those important tasks for ourselves. The answer is no we do not. At some point, we simply need to recognize that now is the time to get our lives in balance. We manage somehow as people will tell you...."I am doing fine" or "I've done fine all my life, what's the big deal?".
By managing stress, taking care of ourselves, our needs, by focusing on what is important to us in every aspect of our lives, and by building a more balanced sense of accomplishment. If you don't sweat the small stuff and remember that it's all small stuff you will soon realize that you can achieve balance in your work and personal life.
