Each day, we make choices that influence our pace and quality of life, and often we are completely unaware of the choices we are making and how they affect our life balance.
So often, we are operating from habit or instinct - on automatic pilot. While it’s a good thing that we don’t have to think about every little choice we make, when it comes to creating a balance between our work-related activities and the rest-of-our-life activities, it is critical to be conscious and deliberate about our decisions. Otherwise, you may find yourself feeling the negative effect of your unconscious choices by feeling overwhelmed, out of control, stressed, or even sick.
Live more mindfully by becoming aware of the many decisions you have to make over the course of your day. You can do this by asking yourself these three questions:
1. Is this moving me toward or away from my valued direction?
2. Do I have a choice?
3. If I don’t have a choice, what can be a positive perspective around this decision?
These three questions can make a big difference in your personal and professional fulfillment.
