Work, Life Balance tips

                                           
After 2 months of being married, the one thing that i have not had enough of is 'TIME. I find myself still having A LOT to do even after the day is over. 
Being a young married woman with dreams, goals and ambition and planning to start a family, it seems impossible to achieve all this and still be sane...Talk about multitasking on overdrive. 

Balancing your personal life with work is not the easiest thing to do and it requires more than just 'Luck and Strength' we need HELP, lots of it.

So If you're finding it more challenging than ever to juggle the demands of your job and the rest of your life, you're not alone.

This brings me to tip number 1

* Focus your time on the things you can control: schedule time to spend with your family and friends. this will help you recharge- go on a date with your spouse or just a simple dinner with friends will boost your energy and help clear up your head.



Tip Number 2

* Don't waste your time on people/things that add no value to you or your work, these are energy sappers and will leave you gasping for air. focus more on productivity, you will realize that you feel better when you've achieved something you have been working on.

Tip Number 3
* Rethink your errands ( To- do list): I have a book where i write down the things i need to do in order of priority, being someone that loves to get things done quickly and on time, i tend to wear my self out because i'm trying to get everything done. Now i know that  if it can wait- let it wait. Do not try to do everything, you will push yourself to a breaking point.
Do tasks that a mostly time bound and delegate the rest.

Tip Number 4

* Keep Moving: it is very difficult to set aside time to do any kind of exercise when you have a very tight schedule. I try to workout at least 2 - 3 times a week ( i wake up early for a quick cardio). This ultimately helps me stay alert and boosts my energy level.

Tip Number 5

Take time out to relax. sounds impossible when you have so much to do, but a little relaxation goes a long way. this will help clear your mind. Do the thinks you enjoy, like listening to music, take a long bath etc

Overcoming the fight in your HEAD

This post may not resonate with everyone, though I pray it speaks to as many people that read it. I understand that we all have different understandings and believe systems. But! I believe this cuts across all that as this is a common denominator in our lives. This post may be 'deep' for some, and enlightening for others if you fall in the bracket of the former, it is my prayer that God will give you understanding in your heart as you read.


We are under ATTACK. No matter how blessed and successful we are, we are being attacked or about to be attacked.We are in a HEAD fight with the devil, We must attack him with what we "KNOW" . Your head will lead you where your heart will not take you. Your head is the center of your existence, how you relate to people around you and things in your life, so it is very important to protect your head.
 The enemy is fighting you over the control of your mind (life), Everything that he does, every form of attack is a battle for contro…

The fear of Uncertainty

Life doesn't always give us what we want. In most cases, it takes us in the opposite direction of where we are trying to go.  The question is, what do you do when you're on a path you did not ask for and was not ready to tread?.
The thing with sudden and unexpected changes is, no body really wants to leave their comfort zone (even though we know that's where great things happen). We just don't want to stay out in an unfamiliar space for too long, and in the worst case, be dealing with an unfamiliar situation, in a particularly tough and  under unfamiliar circumstances.  I call it, "The fear of uncertainty".

NOT knowing what is going to happen next is a daunting place to be, especially if you like to KNOW  ahead of time and you are someone who likes to plan and be prepared for things so you know what moves you need to make to avoid unpleasant situations.  See, life is funny because nobody really knows what is going to happen next, we all live with the hope th…

The challenge to be "Grounded"

It takes some people longer than others to figure out what they are supposed to be doing with their life.
I know I write a lot about knowing who you are and what you were created to be. I believe this is very important as it is the root  for our existence. Once we discover why we are here and what we are supposed to be doing, every thing naturally flows on from there. So do not be overwhelmed by this, It is my hope that someone is blessed by one of my posts.
I am going to dive right in. I know a lot of people struggle with finding out who they truly are and what they are supposed to be doing with their life. So they jump from one thing to the other, leaving trails of unfinished projects, quitting before the business has time to grow, stranded ideas that began as a "great" idea and they end up thoroughly confused and frustrated. Which will often lead them back to repeat the cycle of Fresh start - excited about something new -New idea- Questions and frustration - Tired and fru…
