What is a Lifestyle Balance? To be totally honest I have no idea. I have spent the last 12 years, since starting my own business, trying to discover what it is. Have I managed? No, I don’t think so.  I believe that I can quickly tell you what a lifestyle balance isn’t. That is, working seven days a week from 9 am to 5 pm and hoping that life will eventually work out or catch you up.

Lifestyle Balance The Rules

My understanding is that to get total lifestyle balance every aspect of your life is equal to or no more significant than any other part of your life.  So, this begs the question, what are the areas of my life?

  • Financial
  • Spiritual
  • Personal and Social
  • Mind/Intellect
  • Physical/Health
