People have different habits and attitudes for their day to day life. There is not one right way how you have to live your life. Everyone has different needs, understandings and attitudes how their routine looks like. Some people want to wake up early and be productive in the morning, others work till late night. Some people need to get out into nature to refill their batteries and others just need a good coffee in the morning. There are people who don’t know how to get energy at all and just hustle from one day to another without taking a break.
Nowadays people talk a lot about work-life balance and discuss how each and every one can find their own methods to be in balance and change their life.
Here are some daily habits which will help you to fundamentally balance yourself and make yourself feel confident.
learn to listen
Take the time to just sit down and listen. There are so many things you can actively listen to. Listen to what your loved once tell you. Take the time to understand them without directly talking back without reflecting the things you just heard.
Listen to music actively and not just to distract yourself while entertaining yourself on another channel. There are podcasts about various subjects and audio books which will take you in stories from other worlds. Listen to the sound of nature when you take a walk. We live in a world where we are mostly asked to express ourselves. But we should not forget that there should always be an antagonist who listens to all the things which are said. Being able to listen actively is a strength which will balance yourself and will help other people who need somebody who listen to what they want to say.
Having the gift to listen patiently and actively will make you sensible and attentive to your surroundings, which is getting more important than ever, because we live in a world where there exists a lot of distraction from every direction.
Exercise can be on a physical and mental level. Even when you are not a sport fanatic, give your body the chance to move a little. Take a walk. Make some small exercises to keep yourself fit. There are various yoga programs or other exercises which you can do by yourself. It will help your physical fitness to stretch your body and give some attention to what feels good for you. Some people need more extreme exercises like running or heavy weight lifting and others prefer the calm challenges of different yoga poses.
Exercising on a mental level will train the agility of your brain. It might be an idea to make some Sudoku’s or puzzles to keep practicing your concentration.
Learn something new
Sometimes we think we know a lot already and get lazy about studying about new things. To keep moving in life, it is always helpful to learn something new. We live in a world where we can get nearly all information about everything on a single database. We can easily do researches in the internet on our own and pick up some new knowledge. Increasing the knowledge will keep you moving with the time and will keep you being interested in resent discussions, weather they are political, social or concerning the science. Whatever it is, it will make you grow and gives you the human satisfaction of moving on with new knowledge.
Take some time off
It was a social attitude for a while where it put a negative light on you when you didn’t do anything for a while, when you just took off some time. It slowly gets more accepted in the society. There is the possibility to take a sabbatical year, where companies offer you to take time off with a certain payment contract so you are financially stable. In your private life, you are more in the position to manage your free time. So, take the time you need. It is ok and has to be ok for everybody around you. Make yourself clear and if necessary call in for the time you need. You have the right to look for your own well-being.
Cultivate good relationships
We are lucky to have friends and family around us. It is important to cultivate the relationships to our loved once for our own emotional well-being and also for our friends and family. Having good relationships to friends, to the partner and to the family makes us humans feel emotionally stable and happy. Our private sphere gives us safety and a well-being which cannot be replaces. So, take the time to meet friends, do activities together and enjoy their company. Visit your family and spend time with them. Take a lot of time to be with your partner because you will never make it up when you are always busy. Taking quality time with your loved one gives you the balance and resilience for having a balanced life.
